Everton ended a torrid run of form by picking up a 2-1 home win over Bournemouth on Saturday, but they had to fight for their win.

The Toffees entered the game having lost their last two Premier League games 3-0 and 4-0 to Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United respectively, and desperately needed a result on Saturday afternoon.

However, Ronald Koeman's men actually fell behind at Goodison Park, as Josh King put Bournemouth in front shortly after half time, as Everton struggled to snap out of their recent form.

Koeman did have a hero in the end, and it was a player he froze out last season, as fringe striker Oumar Niasse returned to not only fire the equaliser, but then also bag a late winner for the Toffees.

Niasse proved to be the unlikely saviour for a manager who completely overlooked him last season and during the summer, but Koeman will just be happy to have claimed a much-needed three points in an unconvincing display.

The result takes Everton out of the bottom three and up into 14th place in the Premier League table, with manager Koeman now needing to kick on from the result, with striker Niasse potentially in line for a bigger role after his brace.

After the game, Idrissa Gueye took to Twitter to celebrate his 'bro' and international team-mate Niasse backing both goals, posting a photo of the duo celebrating.

Injured winger Yannick Bolasie also celebrated the victory, as did defender Mason Holgate, who featured alongside Ashley Williams in a rare start at centre back.
