That concludes our commentary of the Premier League fixture between Everton and Bournemouth. We hope you enjoyed it!
The match, and the season come to an end with Everton losing 3-1 to Bournemouth at Goodison Park. The Cherries were deserving of their victory after taking the lead early through King, and weathering a Kean equaliser late in the first half to go into the interval ahead thanks to a Solanke header following a Rico free-kick. Stanislas provided the insurance 10 minutes from time with a lovely curled finish - but the win would prove not enough as Bournemouth’s points tally of 34 is not enough to keep them in the Premier League, finishing 18th. The loss drops Everton into 12th.
90' + 3' OVER! Wilson leans back and puts an effort towards goal from just outside the 18-yard box, which sails just over Pickford’s crossbar.
90' + 1' The fourth official indicates four additional minutes will be added for stoppages.
90' Billing links up with Stanislas inside the Everton penalty area, but Sigurdsson tracks back and puts it behind for a corner.
H. Wilson
J. King
88' King has run himself into the ground today and will not see the final whistle, as Wilson replaces him with two minutes left.
87' NEWS FROM ELSEWHERE AS WEST HAM HAVE DRAWN LEVEL. Substitute Andriy Yarmolenko has provided a lifeline for Bournemouth, as West Ham equalise with three minutes remaining.
86' News from elsewhere and it may not be what Bournemouth fans want to hear as Jack Grealish has scored for Aston Villa, which would confirm their Premier League status over the Cherries. There are still five minutes to play plus stoppages however - more than enough time for things to change.
84' This is Bournemouth’s eighth consecutive season playing their final league game away from home, with the Cherries winning just two of the previous seven (D2 L3).
82' Unfortunately for Bournemouth, this fantastic final-day display may not be enough as West Ham continue to draw 0-0 with Aston Villa at the London Stadium, which would send the Cherries and Watford into the Championship.
J. King
80' King has an assist to add to his earlier strike, with his link-up sending Stanislas on his way to goal. 
J. Stanislas
80' STANISLAS PROVIDES THE INSURANCE! 3-1 BOURNEMOUTH! The winger plays a lovely one-two pass with King and drives into the penalty area before shaking off Gordon and curling a finish around the goalkeeper!
M. Keane
Yellow Card
79' Keane dives into a tackle on Wilson and mistimes it, receiving a yellow card and giving Bournemouth a free-kick, but preventing the counter-attack from coming to fruition.
77' Everton have everyone except Pickford inside Bournemouth’s half as they look for a way to equalise. Bournemouth look resigned to defending with everyone and hitting on the counter as they look for an insurance goal as they continue to hope for help from elsewhere.
75' Heroic slide from Baines who uses two feet to poke the ball away from Wilson. The striker would have otherwise enjoyed a free strike at goal from eight feet, but it’s a timely intervention from the veteran left-back.
73' Lerma plays a lovely ball down the left for King, but Branthwaite glides across and puts the striker off before playing the safe pass back to Pickford. Despite conceding twice, it’s been a calm performance for the 18-year old centre-back.
D. Calvert-Lewin
M. Kean
70' Calvert-Lewin is in for the goal scorer, as Kean gets an early rest.
T. Davies
70' Bernard replaces Davies with 20 minutes remaining in the match. 
L. Baines
L. Digne
70' Baines comes on for his 348th Premier League appearance for Everton - which could also be his last. He’s sent on for Digne in a straight swap at left-back.
68' In news from elsewhere, Danny Welbeck has pulled one back to put Watford 3-2 down against Arsenal at the Emirates. At the London Stadium, it remains 0-0 between West Ham and Aston Villa.
66' Sigurdsson whips a cross into the penalty area after taking up a position on the right, but Cook stoops to clear it away with his head.
J. Stanislas
D. Brooks
64' Howe makes two changes at once as Brooks is taken off for Stanislas.
P. Billing
D. Solanke
64' A midfielder replaces a striker as the introduction of Billing means Solanke is recalled to the bench.
62' Everton have dominated possession in the second half with almost 80% as Bournemouth hold their shape and do their best not to concede an equaliser. Howe looks to have substitutes ready as he attempts to address the issue.
60' Sigurdsson tees Kean up for a strike on the edge of the 18-yard box, but three Bournemouth defenders converge to block the attempt and put it out for a throw.
D. Sidibé
S. Coleman
58' The second substitution sees captain Coleman depart, with Sidibe on in his place.
A. Gordon
T. Walcott
58' Everton make two substitutions just before the hour, with Gordon replacing Walcott in the first switch.
56' Brooks drives into the penalty area but is eased off the ball fairly by Keane - who sends the winger to the ground as he emerges with the ball.
54' Lerma fails to get solid contact on the ball as his failed clearance allows Everton to regain possession and slip it through the ranks for Coleman. The right-back takes up a great position but he sends his cross skipping into the arms of Ramsdale.
52' Richarlison is down in pain after his studs were caught in the turf. Under no pressure from Lerma the striker just appeared to trip, but it looks as though it isn’t serious as he receives some quick treatment to the knee.
50' Bournemouth haven't lost after leading at half-time in the Premier League since January 2016 vs West Ham.
48' Digne bends the first corner of the second half into the penalty area from the right, but he swings the cross in too close to Ramsdale.
46' Everton get the match restarted from the kick-off! 
With Watford losing 3-1 to Arsenal, Aston Villa remain to be the only thorn in Bournemouth’s side. In the lead but without dominating, Howe is in a difficult position, straddling between pushing for an insurance goal or defending the position they already have. Their approach will be crucial, as Ancelotti will no doubt look to rotate his squad in the second half, giving as many players a run out as possible.
A breathless opening 45 minutes of football finishes with Bournemouth leading 2-1, thanks to Solanke’s header just moments from the half-time whistle which broke the deadlock. King’s penalty on seven minutes opened the scoring and gave the Cherries a dream start following a Richarlison handball, but Kean’s simple finish following a Walcott assist drew the hosts level with four minutes left in the first half. The visitors can go into the break aware that they are doing all they can, while results elsewhere are mixed.
45' + 2' The fourth official indicates three additional minutes will be added for stoppages.
Diego Rico
45' + 1' Rico has been involved all match and finally gets his reward - assisting Solanke for Bournemouth's second goal. 
D. Solanke
45' + 1' GOAL! BOURNEMOUTH RETAKE THE LEAD! The free-kick is swung in by Rico on the left, taken towards Solanke and Lerma. Both rise to get to the ball but it’s the striker who gets there first, nodding his header past a diving Pickford! 2-1!
45' Coleman gives away a free-kick on the left wing, in a perfect position for a cross into the penalty area.
43' Bournemouth are looking to achieve a Premier League double against Everton for the first time following their 3-1 win at the Vitality Stadium earlier this season.
T. Walcott
41' Walcott’s square pass across the six-yard box made for as simple a finish as Kean could have possibly asked for. It’s the assist for Everton’s equaliser.
M. Kean
41' EVERTON DRAW LEVEL! Coleman’s mazy run into the penalty area draws markers, which allows the right-back to play Walcott through towards the byline onside. From there, it’s a simple pass across the face of goal for Kean, who turns it home! 1-1!
39' Everton have looked shaky passing out from the back as Bournemouth are pressing intently high up the pitch. Branthwaite has managed to play himself out of danger well thus far, but the hosts have turned possession over far too easily one too many times in the first half.
37' Rico puts a free-kick into the penalty area from the left, but once again Keane is first to the ball as Everton clear it all the way back to Ramsdale.
35' It’s a double for Aubameyang at the Emirates as Arsenal have put themselves 3-0 up against Watford. All that stands in the way between Bournemouth and the Premier League next season is West Ham 0-0 Aston Villa.
33' Everton look to have made a tactical switch, with Richarlison pushing out wide and Sigurdsson coming central in-behind Kean, who stays as the sole striker. With Davies and Gomes holding, it’s much more of a 4-2-3-1; a switch that has seen the hosts look a little more comfortable in possession.
31' Digne teases in a lovely cross from the left, which Richarlison feints away from nicely to allow Sigurdsson possession. Almost as if he wasn’t expecting it, the Everton number 10 mistimes his take and allows Bournemouth to retake possession on the edge of their own 18.
29' Smith looks to the far post for King, but it’s put far too long as it winds up on the other touchline for Rico. The involved full-back puts another cross into the penalty area, but Pickford is equal to the delivery.
27' Branthwaite plays it out from the back coolly to Davies, who wins a free-kick in midfield after losing his boot. It gives a chance to allow Everton to move up the pitch and clear their lines.
25' A Kieran Tierney strike means that Arsenal are now 2-0 up against Watford. As things stand, Aston Villa would remain in the Premier League, with Bournemouth and Watford relegated. Should West Ham take the lead in their match against Villa, the Cherries would be in pole position.
23' Everton have won all four of their Premier League home games against Bournemouth, netting at least twice each time (12 goals in total).
21' Wilson rises high to get a head on the end of Rico’s cross, but he’s unable to manufacture enough power to beat the goalkeeper.
19' Walcott gets his chance to put Everton level but an oncoming Ramsdale slides and manages to block the winger’s weak, narrow-angle shot!
17' Everton get forward in numbers but Richarlison refuses to shift the ball to his right for Walcott following a brilliant Kean pass - instead wiring it towards goal. The shot is unconvincing but ultimately blocked after a big block from Kelly.
15' Rico takes a corner from the left as he looks to put Bournemouth two goals ahead, but Keane heads it behind. A second set-piece is taken which is cleared by Everton desperately but only after what appeared to be a handball from Digne inside the penalty area. Despite appeals from the visitors, the referee urges play to continue.
J. King
Penalty Goal
13' 1-0! King’s 50th career goal for Bournemouth may just keep the Cherries in the Premier League as he steps up with confidence and slots his penalty low, just underneath the outstretched arm of Pickford who had guessed the right way!
12' PENALTY TO BOURNEMOUTH! Brook’s free-kick deflects off the wall and drops into the penalty area, where Richarlison motions towards the ball with his elbow in order to get to it before Solanke. The referee points straight away! The visitors have a lifeline!
11' WHAT A SAVE FROM PICKFORD! Wilson gets into the penalty area after splitting Branthwaite and Digne to receive a pass from Solanke, but the goalkeeper raises a strong fist into the air to block the striker’s high take!
9' Wilson attempts to tease a ball through on the counter-attack for King, who does well to get the better of Coleman. His early return pass into the centre of the penalty area is lacking in quality however as Pickford is allowed to gather easily.
7' NEWS FROM ELSEWHERE: Arsenal have taken the lead over Watford thanks to a penalty from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang - a positive early sign for Bournemouth.
5' Bournemouth have dictated the opening five minutes, looking to take the match into Everton’s half. A couple of rushed clearances down the flank towards Richarlison is about all the Toffees have been able to muster.
3' It will be a nervy 90 minutes of football for the visitors, who must focus solely at the task at hand and forget what they are not able to control. Easier said than done, but that’s the message Howe has communicated to his side before kick-off.
1' Bournemouth get the match started from the kick-off! The final 90 minutes of Premier League football for the 2019/20 season is underway!
Bournemouth make three changes from their 2-0 defeat to Southampton last week. Smith replaces Stacey at right-back, while Billing is dropped for Gosling in midfield. In attack, King is pushed out to the left, meaning Stanislas starts on the bench, which allows Solanke to play in his natural position - striker.
Everton make two changes from their 1-0 win over Sheffield United last time out. Coleman returns to right-back, sending Sidibe to the bench while Kean is favoured over Calvert-Lewin in attack.
BOURNEMOUTH SUBS: Philip Billing, Sam Surridge, Harry Wilson, Junior Stanislas, Arnaut Danjuma Groeneveld, Jack Stacey, Nathan Ake, Artur Boruc, Lewis Cook.
BOURNEMOUTH XI (4-4-2): Aaron Ramsdale; Adam Smith, Steve Cook, Lloyd Kelly, Diego Rico; David Brooks, Dan Gosling, Jefferson Lerma, Joshua King; Callum Wilson, Dominic Solanke.
EVERTON SUBS: Leighton Baines, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Djibril Sidibe, Bernard, Maarten Stekelenburg, Joao Virginia, Beni Baningime, Ellis Simms, Anthony Gordon
EVERTON XI (4-4-2): Jordan Pickford; Lucas Digne, Michael Keane, Jarrad Branthwaite, Seamus Coleman; Gylfi Sigurdsson, Tom Davies, Andre Gomes, Theo Walcott; Richarlison, Moise Kean.
With 10 minutes to go before kick-off, let's look at the team news - starting with the hosts! 
Everton enter today’s fixture off the back of a 1-0 win over Sheffield United - though it was the Toffees’ first victory in five games. Bournemouth’s last win came against Leicester City two weeks ago; their first in 12 matches. 
It’s a straightforward task for Eddie Howe today as only a win against Everton, coupled with losses from Aston Villa and Watford will save the 19th place Cherries and prevent them from dropping into the Championship for the first time since 2015. Bournemouth will need all the help they can get on what is slated to be an extremely dramatic final day, but with Everton having very little to play for  - the three points should be there for the taking.
Everton finish their domestic campaign with a match at Goodison Park, with the hosts having known their fate for some time now. Unable to jump Arsenal who are four points ahead in 10th place, the Toffees at least have the luxury of knowing they can fall no further than 12th, should Southampton better their result. It’s been a tricky season for the Merseysiders - though a full transfer window with Carlo Ancelotti at the helm should improve their prospects ahead of next year.
