What Trueform says for Everton vs Southampton
Southampton boosted their survival hopes with a crucial home win over Bournemouth and our Trueform ratings suggest they are playing well enough to pick up another positive result at Everton.
However, the Toffees have been in rock-solid form recently, only losing to Manchester City in their last seven Premier League matches.
That makes 11/5 for a draw at Goodison Park the most tempting option for our Everton vs Southampton betting predictions.
A Look At Everton’s Betting Odds
Everton made it four wins in seven games when following up a 1-0 home victory over Newcastle by prevailing 2-0 at Huddersfield.
Sam Allardyce has steered the Toffees from 18th to eighth in the table after fine finishes in either half from Turkey forward Cenk Tosun and Senegal midfielder Idrissa Gueye.
The manager said: “When you go past that 40-point mark, it’s very easy for a player to think about his holidays and actually switch off, but the effort from the players has been fantastic.
“Our players are striding forward. This is the best run of points gained since I’ve been here. We’re pushing ourselves as high up in the league as we possibly can.”
The Goodison faithful have not been won over by Big Sam, insisting his style of football is not great to watch, but it is hard to argue with the results earned.
Only the two Manchester clubs have left this ground with maximum points since October!
A Look At Southampton’s Betting Odds
Southampton put the disappointment of their FA Cup semi-final defeat behind them when Dusan Tadic’s double inspired a 2-1 triumph over Bournemouth at St Mary’s Stadium.
The Saints were hanging on at the end of that contest, but some late jitters were understandable, given the severity of their situation.
“I think everybody understood the significance of the result for us, it was vitally important that we got maximum points,” said Hughes.
“A draw, in my view, wouldn’t have been enough to allow us to still be within a chance of staying in this league.”
Southampton had been playing well without winning before that game, though, losing 3-2 to Arsenal and Chelsea in entertaining events and drawing at Leicester.
“Results change everything,” added Hughes. “They change perception, they change people’s mentality, they change fans’ mentality, it’s not all negative now.”
Getting another point here would set things up nicely for next Tuesday’s crunch clash with Swansea in Wales.
