Everton must end 11-game winless streak at Bournemouth as second PSR hearing looms

Everton must end 11-game winless streak at Bournemouth as second PSR hearing looms

Everton’s hugely concerning winless streak is now firmly into double digits, having gone 11 Premier League games without a win, and we’re teetering dangerously on the edge of equalling an unwanted record.

The upcoming trip to Bournemouth offers a chance to turn things around, and a victory at Vitality Stadium could be the spark that ignites a much-needed resurgence for the beleaguered Toffees.

Not only are we struggling for results, but our attacking record is a sight for sore eyes, as we’ve only managed to score seven goals in our ongoing winless streak (D5, L6).

Those struggles were laid bare in the defeat to United, where we created one big chance and recorded an astonishing 23 shots, but only six were on target.

On paper, the clash against United was a mismatch, but after our bright start to the game, it’s hard to shake the feeling that we could have emerged at least with a point if we were clinical enough.

United barely created any significant chances. We basically handed them the three points on a silver platter after giving away two clumsy penalties.

After the game, Dwight McNeil, arguably our best performer at Old Trafford, admitted to EvertonTV that the team is struggling for confidence in the attacking areas, and he was spot on.

However, the time for licking our wounds is over. Due to the FA Cup quarter-finals this weekend and the subsequent international break, the Blues are not in action again until we travel to Bournemouth on March 30.

The three-week break offers Dyche and his troops enough time to rest, reset, refocus, and re-strategise on how to end our awful winless streak and avoid equalling a record 12 Premier League games without a win.

You’d have to travel back to December 16 for the last time we won a Premier League game, and our barren spell has prevented us from pulling far enough away from the relegation zone as possible.

Our slim four-point cushion above the bottom three doesn’t bode well for our chances of surviving the drop, especially with a second hearing around the club’s breach of Profitability and Sustainability Rules on the horizon.
