Southampton vs Everton Prediction
Southampton almost pulled off an inspiring win the last match-day, after one of the heaviest losses in the PL history, at the hands of Leicester. Despite being hosted at the Etihad, the guests found the back of the net in the 13th minute itself and impressively held it till the 70th.
Only four minutes from full-time did they trail for the first time in the game. Sadly for traveling fans, the match ended 2-1, in favor of Manchester City.
Everton had a heartbreak in the meantime, as their midfielder Andre Gomes suffered a horrific ankle injury, which had the potential to end his career. But at the time of writing, positive news is coming out from the team’s management, about the player’s recovery.
This news will definitely give some buoyancy to the players, and they will draw further inspiration from the manner Leicester put to shame these hosts two weeks back.
Keep note that Southampton has been winless in their previous six match-days, and embarrassingly lost five of these. They also conceded twice or more in six of their prior eight matches, and the combined scoreline for their last three fixtures is 14-2, in favor of their opponents.
At home, they have lost four of their preceding five match-ups, and have one victory to show for, from their past eight appearances here. (The sole win had come in a friendly).
On the other hand, Everton has remained unbeaten in their last two matches and scored two or more goals in three of their past four battles as well. Moreover, in spite of their off-form, they are counted amongst one of the teams always in contention for a spot in Europe from the PL, and for sure, we can count on them to take this upcoming fixture as an opportunity to make a comeback to their days in the sun.
