By Will Butcher
Everton may have dropped a hint on Twitter over their starting line up to face Bournemouth on Saturday.
Ronald Koeman’s men will be looking to continue their fantastic start to the season, as they sit in second place in the Premier League table after four wins and a draw.
The Toffees’ official Twitter account posted a picture of attacking duo Romelu Lukaku and Yannick Bolasie, with the caption “Can Bolasie and Lukaku link up for another goal on Saturday?”

DR Congo international Bolasie made a substitute appearance during Tuesday night’s disappointing 2-0 loss to Norwich, and is expected to return to the starting line up in place of Aaron Lennon.
Lukaku missed out on the entire matchday squad, after picking up a toe injury and was suspected to be a doubt for the game against Eddie Howe’s Cherries at Goodison Park.

However, as quoted by the Liverpool Echo, manager Ronald Koeman has confirmed that Lukaku should return to face Bournemouth.
“Romelu trained separately from the group today,” Koeman revealed, as quoted by the Liverpool Echo. “We expect him to train normally tomorrow morning. If that happens then he’s fit for the weekend.”
Former Crystal Palace man Bolasie has provided an assist for Lukaku in his last two games, producing a superb cross to the back post for the Belgian star to hea dhom against Sunderland before Lukaku got his toe on the end of a Bolasie cross against Middlesbrough.
