Tim Howard returned to the starting eleven for Everton in their 2-1 win over Bournemouth at Goodison Park. Tom Cleverley scored for Everton in the 7th minute with Bournemouth equalizing two minutes later. Leyton Baines won the game in the 64th minute with an assist from Cleverley.
“We started the game well with Tom Cleverley producing a very good finish but then we felt hard done by Bournemouth’s goal,” Everton manager Roberto Martinez said. “I felt Matty Pennington is impeded and it was just in front of the linesman. But from that point on I thought it was long enough for us to get back and we got the winning goal. At times we had to dig deep and show a strong resilience. All in all, it was a hard-earned win, but a win that we needed.”
