Southampton and Everton face off on Saturday in an English Premier League showdown at St. Mary’s Stadium. When these two teams faced off on February 19th, it was Southampton that secured the 2-0 victory.
Everton currently sits in 13th place, having picked up seven points so far this season. It hasn’t been a great season for Everton, but they picked up a win in the last game. Everton only scored one goal against West Ham, and that was enough to secure the 1-0 victory. Over the last three games, Everton has given up only goal total, but still only picked up one win. If the offense can find a way to get going, Everton will be in good shape to win a few games. Nathan Patterson is dealing with an ankle injury, and he won’t be able to go in this game.
On the other side of this matchup is Southampton, who sit in 14th place in the standings having picked up seven points. Southampton’s last game came against Aston Villa, and they were defeated 1-0. Southampton had seven shots but only one shot on target and that led to the defeat. The goal was given up to Jacob Ramsey in the 41st minute. Southampton has failed to score in each of the last two games. Romeo Lavia and Valentino Livramento are both still dealing with injuries and won’t be able to go in this game. In this game, Southampton needs to try to get the first goal early.
There won’t be more than a goal scored in this game. Everton’s defense has been lights out heading into this game, and Southampton isn’t going to have any success. I’m not sure Everton gets on the board, though, and this game is going to have very few scoring chances by either side. Back the under 1.5 to cash.
