  1. FULL-TIME - Bournemouth 1-0 Everton

    And that's it. Adam Smith was cleaned up and seemed OK and Bournemouth fully deserved that victory thanks to Junior Stanislas' first-half belter.

    As for Everton, that's successive defeats following the EFL Cup loss to Norwich. 

    Thanks for joining us. You can follow the reaction to all the Saturday football here and the developing match report is here but goodbye for now.

    This is surely only delaying the final whistle... seven minutes of added time played. Bournemouth scored in the 98th minute last season...

    Bournemouth 1-0 Everton

    A free-kick for Everton - it gets flicked on but Ashley Williams can't turn it towards goal.

    Bournemouth's Adam Smith has blood pouring from his face after Williams' elbow struck him in the face. Totally accidental but that's really nasty. Claret everywhere. 

    Medical attention for Adam Smith

    A long punt forward from Everton but it's cleared. Eddie Howe is anxious on the touchline.

    Bournemouth 1-0 Everton

    Into the fourth minute of stoppage time and if Everton conjure an equaliser it will be very, very fortunate.

    Second best in all areas today.

    A huge cheer all around the ground when Harry Arter is announced as the sponsors' man of the match. The midfielder, who cost £5,000 from non-League side Woking, has covered every blade of grass, been a driving force all afternoon and nearly found the net from distance himself.

    Yannick Bolasie swings over an excellent cross but substitute Enner Valencia can't connect properly. It bounces off his knee and goes wide.

    Meanwhile Benik Afobe replaces Callum Wilson for Bournemouth.

    The ball is down the Everton end. Can the visitors get something out of this? Looking unlikely.

    Andrew Surman into the book for bringing down Phil Jagielka as Everton threatened a counter-attack.

    The final Everton change - Idrissa Gueye off and replaced by on-loan striker Enner Valencia.

    Seamus Coleman is then guilty of a foul throw. It's been that kind of afternoon for Everton.

    Bournemouth 1-0 Everton

    Remember there were four goals from the 80th minute in this fixture last season.

    Plenty could still happen. Everton are the team on the offensive now as Bournemouth drop back to protect their lead.

    Bournemouth 1-0 Everton

    Everton finally threaten. Ashley Williams takes the aerial route to find Yannick Bolasie but his cross is headed clear.

    Bolasie then has a shot from 20 yards after some patient build-up play but is too high.

    Meanwhile, that's enough for Jack Wilshere who is replaced by former Everton man Dan Gosling.

    Bournemouth winger Max Gradel comes on for Jordon Ibe, who was excellent - particularly in the first half.

    Bournemouth 1-0 Everton

    Ross Barkley not having one of his better afternoons but he's far from alone in that among those wearing blue.

    Bournemouth are being allowed plenty of time to knock the ball out. It feels very comfortable but the lead is still only one goal.

  16. Boruc shines for Cherries

    BBC Sport at Vitality Stadium

    He hasn't been called upon much today, but Cherries keeper Artur Boruc has shone out - literally - when required.

    Not only did he make a crucial save from Romelu Lukaku early on, and did well to tip away Gerard Deulofeu's tantalising cross just now - the big Pole is wearing one of the brightest goalkeeping shirts in the history of football.

    Bournemouth 1-0 Everton

    This is better from Everton. Gerard Deulofeu's attempt at a corner is poor but he gets a second go and this time the delivery is delicious - keeper Artur Boruc is able to palm it away from danger.

    Harry Arter has a shot for Bournemouth but it goes well wide.

    The pace of the game has slowed but Everton are not really threatening an equaliser. The Ross Barkley header a few minutes ago being a very rare attack.

    Another change for ineffective Everton - Gerard Deulofeu coming on for Kevin Mirallas.

    A third yellow card for a late challenge - Bryan Oviedo bringing down Bournemouth's Adam Smith.

    The free-kick goes behind for a Bournemouth corner but Everton are able to clear.
