Everton and Southampton will face each other in the Premier League this weekend. The match between the Toffees and the Saints will be held at Goodison Park and is scheduled to kick off at 3pm UK time on Saturday.

Everton

Everton narrowly managed to stay in the Premier League at the end of last season. The Toffees were in danger of getting relegated to the Championship until the final days of the campaign, and they somehow managed to keep their Premier League status. And things are going the same way this time around.

Frank Lampard’s side are third from bottom in the Premier League table at the moment with 15 points from 18 matches. The Merseyside club are level on points with 17th-placed West Ham United.

Everton will head into the match against Southampton at Goodison Park in the Premier League on the back of a 3-1 defeat to Manchester United away from home at Old Trafford in the third round of the FA Cup. It came after a 4-1 loss at the hands of Brighton and Hove Albion at home in the Premier League.

Team News:

Dominic Calvert-Lewin is free from injury now and is available for Everton. The English striker is set to lead the line for Everton against Southampton. Demarai Gray has been arguably the best player for the Toffees so far this season, and he should start.

Southampton

Like Everton, Southampton are also in real danger of getting relegated to the Championship at the end of the season. The Saints are an established club in the Premier League, but they have been flirting with relegation for a while now, and this season it is a very distinct possibility that they will go down to the second tier of English football.

Southampton are at the foot of the Premier League table at the moment with 12 points from 18 matches. They are three points behind 17th-placed West Ham United. Nathan Jones’s side still have a very good chance of escaping the dreaded drop to the Championship at the end of the season, but it is clear that they have to step up their game.

The Saints will head into the match against Everton away from home at Goodison Park on the back of a 2-0 victory over Manchester City at St. Mary’s Stadium in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup. It came as a shock result and followed a 2-1 victory over Premier League rivals Crystal Palace away from home at Selhurst Park in London in the third round of the FA Cup.

Team News:

Sekou Mara will lead the line for Southampton against Everton. James Ward-Prowse and Adam Armstrong will start as well for the Saints.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Everton have scored 14 goals in 18 Premier League matches this season.
  • Everton have conceded 24 goals in 18 Premier League matches this season.
  • Southampton have scored 12 goals in 18 Premier League games this campaign.
  • Southampton have conceded 15 goals in 18 Premier League games this campaign.
  • Southampton have lost their last six Premier League matches.

Conclusion

Southampton have hit a bit of form, and that could be crucial in the match against Everton. Yes, the Toffees will have home advantage for the Premier League encounter this weekend, but the Saints could actually use that to their advantage. An early goal or two for Southampton could see Everton fans turn on their team. A narrow away win is the most likely result in this encounter.
