Turning to the midfield, why does Koeman insist on playing Davy Klaassen and leaving Tom Davies on the bench?
Bournemouth defender Tyrone Mings will be unavailable for at least a month because of a back injury.
Conor McNamara: "Everton's rollercoaster season started with a £150m squad overhaul and a catapult launch of four straight wins in all competitions". All three contributed more than the players they replaced and Everton were repaid with a first win in five Premier League games. Last season was a totally different situation as we had Romelu Lukaku.
Signed in early 2016 for £13.5m, Oumar Niasse was considered one of the great follies of Roberto Martinez's crumbling Everton regime, by Ronald Koeman as much as anybody else. The boy has those kind of qualities that we need when we are struggling. In my opinion, that's ridiculous.
It was a strategy that worked to a point but yielded just one effort on target on the first 45 minutes, a deflected Williams effort following a corner with 10 minutes gone.

"He came on last Wednesday and scored a goal".
The Dutchman was staring at a fifth successive Premier League defeat without a goal to their name when he sent on Oumar Niasse to rescue a game they were losing due to Bournemouth striker Josh King's goal.
Koeman claims now that he never had a problem with Niasse, despite relegating him to the Under-23 squad for the first half of last season before sending him out to Hull in January. Further, what do you make of the idea to drop Rooney from the starting lineup? His debut, for Everton, was on 17 August 2002.
Regardless of those ongoing concerns, there is no doubt that a come-from-behind win with a new cult hero in the side can only be a boon for confidence, something that was in short supply coming off the hammering at the hands of Manchester United.
