The FA Cup

Predicted Everton line-up to play Bournemouth: Kone and Pienaar to start

Here is how we predict Everton will line up against Bournemouth this weekend:

Everton travel to the Vitality Stadium on Saturday to take on Bournemouth in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Both sides will know they are getting ever closer to Wembley and potentially some silverware come May so they are likely to take this clash very seriously.

Everton are currently 11th in the Premier League and they will be smarting after their 1-0 defeat to West Bromwich Albion last time out, eager to make amends for that result.

As for Bournemouth, they are 15th, four points clear of the drop zone with 12 matches remaining.

But this weekend is all about the FA Cup so both sides will be fully focused on that competition.

In early team news, Everton are without Tyias Browning, Tony Hibbert and Muhamed Besic due to injury while John Stones is rated at only 50/50 to recover from a hamstring injury.

January signing Oumar Niasse is currently lacking match fitness and will not be risked until he is absolutely ready.

With all that in mind here is how we predict Everton will line up this weekend:
