Buendia is ahead of schedule from something I read. May be available in March.

Should say that I rate Iraola, and I'm sure he and Unai shared a nice bottle of Txakoli after the game.

It was a bit disjointed. But we kept going.

Bournemouth we’re much better than I thought they’d be.

They’re hitting a decent patch of form.

We’re going to face more performances like this as the season progresses. Teams at the bottom hitting form and starting to believe they can stay up. It’s something we need to improve on away from home.

The fact that Cash is on 4 yellows is worrying. Several games coming up where I wouldn't want to be playing today's back 4 in.

To make the top 4 you need to be very good home or away and durable on the reverse - so if you look at 4 points from the last two away that’s decent. We’re not always going to play well, so being able to grit out points when we don’t is big. Now we really need to be at the top of our game for next two.

Brilliant equaliser by Ollie, fortunate point but we take it and move on. Lots of players running on empty and a couple of others running out of chances. Thought Emery had a very poor day with team selection and timing of subs too.

Martinez 8 - few brilliant saves
Konsa 3 - one brilliant tackle but proven once again that he cannot play at right back.
Carlos 2 - pub league stuff for their first and to be honest doesn't seem PL standard
Torres 5 - struggled with Solanke throughout and very poor for their second. Decent with ball
Digne 5 - a bit meh really and under pressure for his spot now
Luiz 6 - started like a boss but definitely gassed at end. Thought he could have done better for their second and missed a sitter in first half
Tielemans 4 - can't play in a two, so weak in contests and we missed Kamara terribly
McGinn 4 - running very flat, not helped by a different position every game but no surprise to see him hooked early
Bailey 7 - brilliant goal, laid one on a plate for Luiz, unlucky to be replaced
Watkins 7 - quiet throughout until his outstanding equaliser, unbelievable header
Zaniolo 2 - chance in early minutes, self belief evaporated soon after. Might not play too much more for us

Ramsey 5 - disappointing really, Duran 5 - one deflected shot and little else, Cash 7 - gave us improved balance immediately, Diaby 7 - brilliant assist late on, Moreno 6 - one decent block, might get in now.
Emery 3 - terrible team selection with Konsa at RB being torn apart in first half. Faith in Carlos badly misplaced yet again. Waiting until.73min to bring Cash in on right beggared belief.

Konsa was worth 6 just for the tackle. It's not his fault he was made to play at right back.

Although he's not been putting in faultless performances for Everton this season, I believe Ashley Young has retained a starting place in their side. Not giving him another season at VP is looking like a mistake.

Great character from the team to get something when not at our best. 4 points from our last 2 away games is a great return.

We missed Kamara. Tielemans offers more further forward.

Zaniolo is struggling but he needs time like everyone else. Great goal from Ollie.

One of those games we lose all day long pre-UE, a good point.

I said that at the start of the season but, Everton fans are not exactly enamoured with him.

I think releasing him was right, not replacing him was the mistake. I reckon we missed out on someone.

Martinez is worth 10 points in a season to us
we wouldn’t have finished top half last season without him

He is the only truly world-class player we have

Poor selection. 
Spawned a poor performance.
Bournemouth must better than anticipated. 
Emi played a blinder and saved by Ollie’’ header. 
Ciao Zaniolo.
Bring on Citeh.

Watkin’s goal was brilliant, and it’s nice to see Bailey properly settled in now. Great finish from him.
