Everton will be in Premier League action this Saturday when they host Southampton at Goodison Park. If you are betting on football this weekend then you can use this Spreadex welcome offer to back the home team for a 1-0 win – the home side is the bookmakers’ favourite to win.

The Toffees have been enduring a miserable run at the moment as they are winless in their previous eight matches across all competitions. 

Their latest league outing saw them suffering a 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Brighton & Hove Albion, with the Merseyside club now dropping into the relegation zone. 

Manager Frank Lampard is currently under enormous pressure and may not survive for another week if Everton succumb to another defeat this Saturday.

Southampton, on the other hand, have been even worse than their opponents in the English top-flight. 

They have lost all their previous six league encounters and are currently at the foot of the table with a meagre 12 points from 18 matches. 

Ralph Hasenhuttl has been dismissed from his position with Nathan Jones replacing the Austrian boss in the dugout. 

However, the Saints have yet to see a lot of improvement under Jones who has failed to pick up any points in the top-flight since his appointment in November. 

Their previous Premier League fixture saw them losing 1-0 to Nottingham Forest. But Nathan Jones’ side were excellent in their following two matches in the FA Cup and EFL Cup.  

Match Preview 

Everton 

Frank Lampard’s side cannot afford to lose the upcoming home fixture and must bring their best game this weekend. 

The Toffees have won only three of their 18 matches this campaign, but they sealed a comfortable victory the last time they met Southampton in October. 

Conor Coady cancelled out the advantage of Joe Aribo’s goal in the second-half before Dwight McNeil added another to help them win 2-1. 

Everton’s recent record against the Saints has been very impressive as they have won three of their previous four matches. 

Southampton 

Nathan Jones’ position is already under scrutiny as Southampton are yet to pick up a point in the top-flight under the Welsh boss. 

However, the Saints registered an encouraging 2-1 FA Cup win over Crystal Palace before picking up a shocking 2-0 result against Manchester City in the EFL Cup. 

Southampton were at the top of their game as they fired two first-half goals to knock the Citizens out of the tournament. They will now face Newcastle United in the semi-final.  

Everton vs Southampton Potential line-ups 

Everton: Pickford; Patterson, Godfrey, Coady, Tarkowski, Mykolenko; Doucoure, Gueye, Iwobi; Gray, Calvert-Lewin

Southampton: Bazunu; Lyanco, Salisu, Bella-Kotchap; Walker-Peters, Lavia, Ward-Prowse, Elyounoussi; S. Armstrong, Aribo; Adams

Everton vs Southampton Prediction 

Currently there doesn’t look to be a lot of difference between Everton and Southampton. Both teams are massively struggling in the Premier League and are deservedly in the relegation zone. 

However, the Saints’ recent wins over Crystal Palace and Manchester City mean they will be more confident than their rivals on Saturday, although fatigue and a come-down from their giant-killing performance will play a role as well. 

Everton should be able to snatch a win as long as they’re defensively solid – something we can only hope for this weekend 

Everton 1-0 Southampton
