Oumar Niasse bagged a brace to help Everton to a 2-1 victory over AFC Bournemouth in the English Premier League on Saturday.

Joshua King marked the first goal of the encounter in the 49th minutes after connecting with Charlie Daniels’ pass.

And Niasse who replaced injured Wayne Rooney in the 55th minutes soon announced his presence when he fired home in the 77th minutes to restore parity to his side.

The former Hull City player completed his brace eight minutes before the full time with another strike to hand Ronald Koeman’s side their second victory in the English elite this term.

The forward has been in a superb form for the U-23 side scoring three goals in his three appearances this season.
