An all Premier League FA Cup tie always gets the pundits a little bit excited and these two teams are two of the worst defensive units in the league – what is there not to love?
After their 3-3 clash earlier in the season, Eddie Howe and Roberto Martinez are unlikely to change their ways as we expect another humdinger of a clash on the south coast. Benik Afobe and Romelu Lukaku can go toe to toe as two of the most domineering strikers in English football.
Whilst the Cherries are still concerned about relegation, the FA Cup is Everton’s best chance to save their mediocre season. Phil Jagielka has spoken of his desire to make it to Wembley again, but this will be a tough test against a high quality Bournemouth team who show no chance of over-respecting their more reputable opponents.
Europa League football has made this Saturday an ordinary FA Cup day of fixtures, but this game is certainly the one to watch.
