Everton need a radical re-boot starting with Bournemouth today

After a terrible run of winless matches since mid-December it is time for the Toffees to kick-start their season before it is too late.

I think manager Sean Dyche simply must be brave and recognize that he needs to consider some significant changes to his team and formation to ensure Everton can finally start winning matches again.

In particularly, the Blues boss has to find ways to score more goals with his side currently the third worst scorers in the Premier League.

So, while I don't expect he will totally change his whole approach, the team I would pick this afternoon is as follows:

Jordan Pickford. Although he made a dreadful howler in England's last game against Belgium, he is still obviously the first-choice for his club.

James Tarkowski. Clearly the veteran centre-back is a key player and has had a strong and generally consistent season in the heart of defence.

Jarrad Branthwaite. The outstanding young defender has enjoyed a superb breakthrough season, even though he failed to get any minutes for England after recently being drafted into the senior squad, which was disappointing.

Seamus Coleman. Although he has just returned from injury again and played quite a few minutes for his country last week, assuming he is fit, I would start with the hugely experienced club captain ahead of Ben Godfrey.

Vitalli Mykolenko. Although he has had some indifferent performances this season the Ukrainian international is still obviously the best and really only choice at left-back.

Abdoulaye Doucoure. The Mali international hasn't been at his best since coming back from his two hamstring injuries but he still represents Everton's best goal threat from midfield.

Amadou Onana. Belgian star Onana hasn't had a very consistent campaign but he is the best defensive option in the centre of the park for me. So he starts ahead of Idrissa Gueye if he is fit.

Nathan Patterson. Former Rangers youngster Patterson has had very few chances under Dyche and I believe he now must get another opportunity playing on the right side of midfield where his attacking instincts and abilities can best be utilized, while also providing defensive cover too.

Dwight McNeil. While McNeil's levels of performance have been down on last season when he finished as the Toffees top scorer, he is still a creative player who I hope can re-discover his best form in this final ten games.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin. DCL is currently enduring a terrible goal drought going back all the way to late October last year when he netted the winner at West Ham. But, he is still a strong at leading the line and should get another chance. Frankly too, there is little alternative anyway.

Beto. The Portuguese summer signing has recently been Dyche's first-choice up front and has looked reasonably sharp getting one more goal. It is now time to see him partner Calvert-Lewin from the start.

Well, that is my team for today's match against the Cherries. Will Dyche go with it or something similar, or not? In a few hours we will find out.
