Commentary

That's all today folks, we hope you enjoyed the game!
What an incredible game at Goodison Park! Everton held a 3-0 lead at the break after two goals from Lukaku and one from McCarthy and they looked in complete control of the game. However Bournemouth hit back and made it 3-2 in the second half and looked like they might complete an incredible comeback. However Everton rallied and two more goals from Lukaku made it 5-2, then the Cherries pulled another back before Barkley scored a sixth goal to complete an incredible game.

70' GREAT SAVE! Robles denies King which a fantastic save! The striker was played through on goal and he tried to lift the ball over the Everton keeper, but Robles made a flying save to deny him.
69' Mid-way through the second half here and it's the Cherries are looking to carve open Everton. However they're leaving themselves open to counter-attacks with the pace of Lukaku and Barkley.
66' Lukaku is furious with the referee for not being awarded a free-kick on the edge of the penalty area are a rough challenge from Brad Smith. The referee awards a corner instead. It looks like Smith might have gotten away with one there.

J. King
Goal
AFC Bournemouth
59' GOOOAAALLL! BOURNEMOUTH PULL ONE BACK! King has given the Cherries hope here. Wilshere played a delightful ball over Williams, into the path of King who chested the ball down and passed the ball under Robles and into the back of the net. Could they make this interesting?
57' Robles hasn't had much too do here for Everton, a spectator for large periods of the game as all the attack has happened at the other end of the pitch.
55' Everton are now back in control of the game, exerting their dominance in midfield are look far more dangerous going forward, with every player trying to get in on the goal scoring act.
52' ALMOST A FOURTH! Barkley almost gets on the score sheet, the midfielder bursts forward and strikes a left-footed shot at goal from edge of the penalty area, but the ball is deflected wide. However the deflection almost wrong footed Boruc and went into the back of the net. Still just the three goals here.
50' Bright start to the second half here by Bournemouth, they've certainly gotten off to a better start than the opening period! The two changes at the break seem to making a difference so far.

46' The second half is underway!
Everton took the lead after just 31 seconds through a superb goal from Lukaku, McCarthy then doubled their lead, before Lukaku fired a third into the back of the net after a terrible mistake by Francis, which gave the hosts a well deserved 3-0 victory at the break. Bournemouth have struggled to get into the game and need a miracle to turn this game around now.
HALF-TIME: EVERTON 3-0 BOURNEMOUTH
45' + 3' That's the half-time whistle!
45' + 2' BOURNEMOUTH CHANCE! Late Cherries period of pressure here just before the half-time whistle. A corner came into the box and the ball fell into the path of Steve Cook who turned and fired a shot at goal which was well saved by Joel Robles and then blasted clear by the Everton defence.
45' There will be a minimum of four minutes added time played here.
43' CHANCE EVERTON! Coleman forces Boruc into making a very good save to deny the Toffees a fourth goal! The right-back beat Mings with ease and then fired a powerful shot at goal, but it was straight at Boruc.
42' STAT: Romelu Lukaku has now scored four goals in his last three Premier League appearances at Goodison Park, after a run of four games without one. Lethal.
40' Decent opportunity for Bournemouth. Mings manages to get a cross into the box, aiming towards the far post. King chests it down but Funes Mori reacts quickly and clears the ball out for a corner, which comes to nothing.
39' The Toffees are still looking to go forward and increase their lead here! Not long to go until the half-time whistle now here at Goodison Park and they deservedly have the lead.
36' Everton are enjoying their football at the moment, controlling the ball in the middle of the pitch through Gareth Barry and Schneiderlin. Plus Lukaku looks like he could score every time he gets the ball within 20 yards of the Bournemouth goal.
34' The Cherries have only won one of their last seven league games and are still seeking their first victory of 2017 in any competition. It would take a miracle for them to change that today!
31' WHAT A CHANCE! Lukaku almost grabs his hat-trick! Coleman looks to release Lukaku with a ball over the top of the defence. However Boruc is quickly off his line to get to the ball just before the Everton striker.
R. Lukaku
Goal
Everton
29' GOOOAAALLL! IT'S THREE-NIL! Lukaku scores another and Everton have a 3-0 lead! It was an absolute gift of a goal for the Belgian. Cherries captain Simon Francis has the ball deep in his own half and looks to play the ball across the box back to his keeper. However he doesn't look up and see Lukaku lurking, the striker intercepts the ball and then lofts the ball into the back of the net. Shocker from Francis, but another great finish from Lukaku.
27' Another Everton chance! Ashley Williams runs the length of the pitch after Everton break. Lukaku plays the ball through to him but the Cherries defence get back quickly and clear the danger. What an opening start to the game by the hosts!
26' Just as Bournemouth had started to play some good football and look to get back into the game, Everton doubled their lead and now the Cherries have a mountain to climb if they're going to come away from this game with something.
J. McCarthy
Goal
Everton
23' GOOOAAALLL! EVERTON DOUBLE THEIR LEAD! James McCarthy gets lucky with the finish but the ball is in the back of the net and that's all that matters! Lukaku was the mastermind of the goal, beating two Bournemouth defenders near the byline with ease and pulling the ball back looking for a teammate. McCarthy was the man running into the box and his sliced shot wrongfoots Boruc and rolls across the line. Everton lead two-nil.
21' Ross Barkley turns on the half-way line and plays a pass in behind to Lukaku who is just beaten to the ball by Tyrone Mings. That was good defending from the Bournemouth defender, as Lukaku would've been through on goal if he hadn't cleared the danger.
20' This is much better play from Bournemouth, they have controlled the ball for the last few minutes but it has all been in the middle of the pitch and are struggling to carve out any goal scoring chances.
18' STAT: Ronald Koeman's side are unbeaten in six league games since Christmas, which is their longest run without defeat this season. Plus the Toffee's tally of 22 points at home this season is only one shy of their final total at home last season.
16' Jack Wilshere has struggled to get on the ball so far here today, however he did just find a tiny bit of space to slip a good ball into the path of King in the box, but Ashley Williams was there to make the block.
H. Arter
Yellow Card
AFC Bournemouth
14' Harry Arter is the first player to receive a yellow card, for dissent.
13' Ryan Fraser tries to break forward for the Cherries but Morgan Schneiderlin pulls off a superb sliding tackle to win the ball back. Excellent defending from the new signing.
11' CHANCE EVERTON! Lookman produces an excellent piece of skill to take the ball past Harry Artur on the edge of the box and then he fires a low shot at goal, which goes narrowly wide of the net with Boruc scrambling across his goal.
9' Lukaku is allowed far too much time and space in the middle of the pitch to bring the ball down and spray the ball out to the left for Ademola Lookman. The youngster does well to keep possession under pressure from Simon Francis, but he is forced to play the ball back and any chance of a counter-attack goes away.
7' The visiting supporters who have made the long trip up to Merseyside from the South Coast are doing their best to get behind their team and boost their players confidence, after a shocking start to the game.
5' The Cherries have started to settle into the game now, with Josh King getting into a couple of good positions, but his first touch has let him down. Everton look comfortable in possession and are playing the ball around well.
3' Huge blow for Bournemouth, they come into the game on the back of a poor run of form already and this is the worst possible start to this game for them.
R. Lukaku

Everton
1' GOOOAAALLL! EVERTON TAKE THE LEAD! After just 31 seconds Everton are ahead here at Goodison Park through a superb strike from Romelu Lukaku. The Toffees got the game underway and began to attack immediately, Lukaku received the ball on the edge of the box and has given Everton the early advantage with a fantastic curling effort, which left Artur Boruc with no chance. What a start!
