Bournemouth's first goal against Everton
Asmir Begovic hit a great deflection for Bournemouth’s opening goal

Bournemouth defeated Everton in a meeting of the Premier League’s most changed sides in the third round of the Carabao Cup.

Frank Lampard made 11 changes, and his side lost to Bournemouth with nine changes from this weekend.

Gary O’Neil’s side took the lead through Jamal Lowe’s deflected shot, with Junior Stanislas finishing after a defensive error.

Substitute Demarai Gray pulled one back for Everton, before Emiliano Marcondes and Jaidon Anthony saved Bournemouth’s way.

Lampard loses a gamble

O’Neil and Lampard have made big changes with the final Premier League game before the 2022 World Cup coming up this week.

Only goalkeeper Mark Travers and centre-back Chris Mepham kept their places for the hosts from their shock 4-3 loss at Leeds United on Saturday.

Lampard went even further, changing his starting XI entirely in Saturday’s defeat by Leicester, including handing Everton’s first start to summer signing James Garner.

It was the new Cherries who adapted quickly, taking the lead after seven minutes when Lowe’s effort beat Nathan Patterson and found the back of the net with keeper Asmir Begovic in disarray.

Everton had the better chances of the first half after that – in the opening 16 minutes, Tom Davies burst down the flank, Travers saved well from Garner and Anthony Gordon headed over. a bar from six yards.

Gordon then should have been sent off for a two-footed lunge on Jordan Zemura just before halftime, but instead ran away with his seventh book in 14 games. this year and you have to thank the lack of VAR in EFL Cup matches.

Everton fans showed their displeasure at Lampard throughout the match for his decision to make a number of changes, angered by the prospect of a first trophy since 1995.

O’Neil returns to winning ways

Unbeaten in his first six games as interim Bournemouth manager following the sacking of Scott Parker, O’Neil has managed defeat in each of his last four games .

However, a cup run won’t put his chances of selection in jeopardy – although if Everton had taken their chances it would have been a very different story.

Instead, Everton gifted Bournemouth captain Stanislas a goal on 47 minutes. Mason Holgate slipped as Begovic passed to him, allowing Ryan Christie to steal it.

He matched Lowe whose shot was blocked by Begovic, but it bounced back to Stanislas to pull away and defender Michael Keane was slow to react.

Stanislas spoke highly of O’Neil after the game, telling BBC Radio Solent: “He’s been brilliant for all of us. We’ve worked with him for a couple of seasons.

“He’s done his best and we’ve had great results. He’s always driving us and pushing us.

“We don’t know what’s going to happen over the winter break but hopefully we can get ourselves out on Saturday.”

Lampard threw on Alex Iwobi, Dwight McNeil and Gray to try to save the game, and the latter made an impact on 67 minutes by slotting the ball past Travers to make it 2-1.

Bournemouth have conceded two goals in their last two Premier League games, but on this occasion they took the opportunity to get a good win.

Marcondes headed over just before Anthony finished off the ball after Patterson gave the ball away, increasing O’Neil’s chances of retaining the Vitality Stadium manager’s job on a full-time basis.
