Bournemouth crushed Everton against many teams in the Premier League in the third round of the Carabao Cup.

Blues boss Frank Lampard made 11 changes, and his side lost to a team with nine substitutions from the weekend.

Cherry drove through Jamal Lowe’s skewed shot, and Junior Stanislas finished off after a defensive foul.

Substitute Demarie Gray pulled one back for Everton before Emiliano Marcondes and Jadon Anthony secured Bournemouth’s place in the last 16.

Lampard loses gambling reserves

Bournemouth boss Gary O’Neill and his Everton counterpart Lampard have made sweeping changes, with the final round of Premier League matches looming ahead of the 2022 World Cup this weekend.

Only goalkeeper Mark Travers and defender Chris Mepham held their places for the hosts after their impressive 4-3 loss to Leeds United on Saturday.

And Lampard went even further, completely shifting the starting line-up from Saturday’s defeat to Leicester, including giving Everton his first game for the summer signing of James Garner.

And it was the fresh-faced Chariz who adapted faster, taking a lead seven minutes later when Lowe’s effort Nathan Patterson collided and netted stranded goalkeeper Asmir Begovic.

Everton had better chances in the first half then – during the opening 16 minutes Tom Davies hit a one-on-one, Travers saved well from Garner and Anthony Gordon blundered for a header over the bar from six yards.

Gordon was then supposed to be sent off for a two-footed lunge on Jordan Zimora shortly before halftime, but instead has escaped his seventh yellow card in 14 games this season and should be thankful for not using VAR in cup matches. European Football Association.

Everton supporters expressed their displeasure with Lampard throughout the match for his decision to make so many changes, frustrated at the opportunity to concede his first major title since 1995.

O’Neil returns to winning ways

Unbeaten in his first six matches as interim coach of Bournemouth following the sacking of Scott Parker, O’Neill has overseen defeats in each of his past four matches.

However, the Trophy round would do his chances of a permanent appointment to no avail – although Everton taking his chances would have been an entirely different story.

Instead, Everton gave Bournemouth captain Stanislas a goal in the 47th minute. Mason Holgate slipped when Begovic passed him, allowing Ryan Christie to steal it.

Squared to Lowe who stopped Begovic’s shot, but bounced back to Stanislas to move away and cover defender Michael Keane slowly in reply.

Stanislas praised O’Neill after the match, telling BBC Radio Solent: “He’s been great for all of us. We’ve worked with him for a few seasons.

“He did his best and we got some really good results. He always leads and pushes us.

“We don’t know what will happen during the winter break but hopefully we can sign the highest level on Saturday.”

Lampard threw on Alex Iwobi, Dwight McNeill and Gray to try to save the match, the latter making an impact in the 67th minute by passing the ball past Travers to make it 2-1.

Bournemouth squandered a two-goal lead in their last two Premier League games, but on this occasion took their chances to secure a comfortable victory.

Marcondes scored from close range before Anthony finished dropping after giving Patterson the ball away, to increase O’Neill’s chances of keeping the Vitality Stadium manager job on a full-time basis.
