Everton vs Southampton
England Premier League.
Date: Monday, 2nd January 2017,
Kick-off at 15:00 UK.
Venue: Goodison Park, Liverpool.

The year 2016 has gone but Premier League continues, as Everton will be hosting Southampton at Goodison Park on Monday.

Everton’s December fixtures have been a mix bag, they managed 8 points from a possible 18 in the 6 games played. They lost 2 games, won 2 games and drew 2. Everton have fallen far behind the top four as they have 27 points to their name which is 10 points behind Arsenal in the 4th spot. They will be needing a win in this game to enter the new year in good mood.

On the contrary, the Saints ended the 2016 calendar year with a disappointing home defeat to West Bromwich Albion. The defeat made it 2 to successive defeat for them as West Brom leap frogged above them. They are now 9th in the league with 24 points and needs to avoid defeat here to remain in top 10.

Everton vs Southampton: Prediction

Just like their previous games, the game will be a tough one with no favourite. However we don’t expect much goals in this game as the two teams haven’t been among the high scoring teams. Also they are both among the teams that have conceded lowest number of goals so far.

We will be expecting a more defensive game here and fewer goals.
