Kurt Zouma and Dominic Calvert-Lewin gave Everton a 2-0 win over Bournemouth to move them into the top half of the Premier League table.

Zouma scored his first Everton goal as the Toffees beat a Bournemouth side that had impressed for large parts of the game Goodison Park but couldn't find that cutting edge up front.

The Cherries impressed for most of the of the first half and saw David Brooks hit a post after 18 minutes.

Everton, though, grabbed the opening goal just after the hour mark when Zouma headed home Lucas Digne's cross ahead of Asmir Begovic .

The hosts then wrapped up the three points when substitute Dominic Calvert-Lewin converted Lookman's low cross in added time.
