Out of form Everton got back on track against Bournemouth with a 2-0 victory at Goodison Park.

Kurt Zouma scored the Toffees' second goal and he insisted that teammate Lucas Digne deserves all the credit.

 

 

It was Digne's cross which Zouma connected with to score, his third assist of the season.

The left-back is proving to be an excellent summer signing, and Leighton Baines' long-term replacement.

Zouma told Everton's official website: "The cross [from Digne] was unbelievable.

"I just had to put my head there and the ball went in.

"I was a bit surprised [to be in so much space], but I had to take it and obviously I’m happy I did."

Zouma has had a mixed time at Everton so far and some fans would prefer to see Yerry Mina selected in his place.

Yesterday was one of his best games for the club and if he produces more performances like that, he may earn a permanent switch to Goodison Park.

Everton are in 10th place, with eight wins from 22 games.
