Paul Merson predicts the result between Everton and Bournemouth

Everton shelled out what could end up being around £140m on new players during the last transfer window once appearance-related add-ons are factored in but, after recording an opening day-victory against Stoke and nearly beating Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium, they have lost three Premier League games on the bounce without scoring a goal.

Ronald Koeman hopes Everton's "medicine of confidence" will kick in when the Toffees host Bournemouth on Saturday.

The Spain global provided an assist in Wednesday's Carabao Cup win over Sunderland but has yet to score in eight competitive outings for Everton.

Calvert-Lewin, who has four Everton goals in total, made headlines over the summer as he notched the victor for England in the Under-20s World Cup final.

McCarthy's last goal was in the corresponding fixture last season, in a 6-3 win for the home side.

Vlasic subsequently cracked another shot narrowly off-target, but in truth, Everton looked as if they were struggling to find much rhythm until Calvert-Lewin broke the deadlock with seven minutes of the first half left. He's listening. he tries to show his commitment, he can play different positions - No 9, 11, 7, he can play with two strikers.

"In a hard period, the best medicine is scoring goals and winning games. Good performances usually bring winning games", the Dutchman added. I know the way to be successful and it's insane... it's ridiculous to put a lot of pressure on the team by saying we need to finish [with] the top four teams. "Everyone knows the direction and difficulty but in football, you need to win, that goes for me and every other manager".

"Everybody got time. Everybody signed new players".

I can't wait to see the team chosen against Bournemouth, it will tell us a lot. "He's a young player, only 20, and sometimes you need to protect young players". That needs time. Let's make the next step. "If there is one person in football (who is ambitious) then he is on this table - but I am realistic".
