Everton are going into the final day of the season knowing that if they beat Bournemouth at Goodison Park they will remain a Premier League team in the 2023/24 campaign.


However, wins have been like gold dust for Everton this season with only seven victories in 37 Premier League games so far.



But five of those wins have come at home and Dyche and his team will back themselves to get the three points in front of their supporters.


Carragher indicated that Dominic Calvert-Lewin will be missed on the final day of the season but stressed that Everton’s ability to score goals from set-pieces will lead them to safety.



He pointed out that the Everton centre-backs have scored key goals this season and also highlighted Bournemouth’s poor record of defending set-pieces.


The former Premier League star wrote in his column for the Daily Telegraph: “Despite having their fate in their hands, Evertonians are still very nervous, especially as they will be without Dominic Calvert-Lewin.



“Dyche’s home victories have all been 1-0, and if that is the scoreline in the remaining minutes on Sunday the anxiety levels will be unbearable.


“I believe Everton will stay up because since Dyche took over they have become one of the most effective set-piece teams in the Premier League – centre-backs are responsible for most of Everton’s goals – and no side in the top division has conceded more from corners and free-kicks than Bournemouth.


“That is where the game can be won and lost.”


Everton have not been relegated from the top flight of English football for over six decades.
