Eddie Howe said Bournemouth’s victory over Everton was a “huge moment in our season” as Callum Wilson scored twice at Vitality Stadium.
Having lost their previous two league games, against Leicester and Manchester City, the Cherries kick-started their campaign with a thoroughly deserved first home league win, lifting them to eighth in the table.
“Psychologically, it was hugely important to win that first home game which is why today was a huge moment in our season,” said Bournemouth manager Howe.
“We took our chances when the game was in the balance.”
England forward Wilson nodded Bournemouth into the lead after Joshua King’s close range miss.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin equalised with a towering header, his first league goal since March, before two goals in five second-half minutes sealed Everton’s fate.
Substitute Ryan Fraser made it 2-1 from a low free-kick which appeared to come off Fabian Delph on its way into the net before Wilson made it three goals in two games with a delicious lob past Jordan Pickford.
