What Trueform says for Southampton vs Everton
Southampton and Everton both enjoyed useful Premier League wins last weekend and a close encounter could be on the cards at St Mary’s Stadium.
Saints suffered a disappointing FA Cup exit on Wednesday, but staying up is their top priority and they should be far more focused when facing the Toffees.
The hosts have drawn five times here this season and 23/10 for another stalemate is our initial Southampton vs Everton prediction.
A Look At Southampton’s Betting Odds
Southampton blew a 2-0 lead against Derby for the second time in their FA Cup replay and eventually crashed out on penalties.
Ralph Hasenhuttl did make five changes for that game, though, with youngsters Kayne Ramsay and Tyreke Johnson among the players to come in.
Saints will now hope to get back to the form which saw them prevail 2-1 at Leicester in the Premier League, despite having Yan Valery sent off and being down to 10 men for the second half.
Hasenhuttl’s side climbed out of the drop zone with that victory and will continue to scrap for every point, having previously drawn 0-0 at Chelsea in this competition.
Looking at the Southampton vs Everton odds, we like 15/4 for the scores to be level at half-time and full-time.
Last Southampton EPL line-up: McCarthy, Vestergaard, Stephens, Targett, Bednarek, Valery, Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Armstrong, Redmond, Long.
Southampton expect to have leading scorer Danny Ings available again after a hamstring problem, while fellow forward Charlie Austin, captain Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and defender Valery have all completed suspensions.
Defender Maya Yoshida is on international duty with Japan at the Asian Cup, while left-back Ryan Bertrand (back), midfielder Mario Lemina (abdominal) and striker Michael Obafemi (hamstring) continue their recovery.
A Look At Everton’s Betting Odds
Everton have struggled with consistency this season but Marco Silva was happy with the spirit shown in a 2-0 defeat of Bournemouth.
The Toffees had won just once in eight league matches going into that game, but goals from Kurt Zouma and Dominic Calvert-Lewin saw off the Cherries.
“I was pleased with the result, but more the character and personality the team showed,” said Silva.
Everton have the stronger squad in our book, but this has not been a happy hunting ground in recent years, with four of their last five visits ending in defeat.
That record may tempt Silva to keep things tight, so 23/4 for a hard-fought 1-1 stalemate is added to our Southampton vs Everton betting tips.
Last Everton line-up: Pickford, Keane, Zouma, Digne, Coleman, Gomes, Sigurdsson, Gueye, Bernard, Richarlison, Lookman.
Defender Phil Jagielka is Everton’s only injury absentee.
