READ EVERTON VERDICT
Due to Gomes not even making the bench, it is a fair assumption to say that the midfielder is likely injured and unable to feature at all against Bournemouth.
Gomes has had a tough start to the season after picking up an injury in pre-season and failing to impress in a poor performance against Aston Villa, but it appears as though he could have more injury problems on his hands.
Marco Silva will surely answer any questions surrounding Gomes’ fitness after the match.
