FA Cup: Bournemouth 0-1 Everton

Everton reached the FA Cup quarter-finals for the fourth time in five seasons as strikes by Ross Barkley and Romelu Lukaku saw off Bournemouth.

It could have turned out differently for the Cherries had Charlie Daniels converted his first-half penalty, which was superbly saved by Joel Robles.

Barkley gave the Toffees the lead when his 20-yard strike looped in off the boot of Dan Gosling in the 55th minute.

Romelu Lukaku settled the tie when he slammed in from close range.

Bournemouth went close through Gosling, whose header from four yards was straight at Robles, and Junior Stanislas’ deflected free-kick narrowly beat the Everton upright.

What next?

Bournemouth travel to Watford next Saturday, and Everton are at struggling Aston Villa on Tuesday, 1 March.
