Everton have secured a second consecutive victory away at Southampton. They dominated the first half but failed to find a breakthrough - a flurry of goals in the second half then saw Southampton take the lead through Aribo only for Everton to respond through goals from Coady and McNeil to win the game 2-1. Everton then set about defending their lead and, despite a couple of hairy moments, managed to see out a hugely signficant victory on the road. They're now eleventh in the Premier League - Southampton are down in 16th.

Gueye gives away a set-piece in a dangerous area and Ward-Prowse whips in a good ball - but Tarkowski manages to steer it to safety, behind the goal. The resulting corner kick then comes to nothing.

Everton have dominated the ball so far, enjoying 54 per cent of possession in the opening half. Both sides have had five shots each but it's the visitors who've managed to get a higher number of them on target (two to one). Everton's xG is also marginally higher (0.49 to 0.43) than Southampton's.

Southampton have lost each of their last two Premier League games, without scoring in either. Only twice under Ralph Hasenhüttl have the Saints failed to score in three consecutive league games, December 2020 (D2 L1) and September 2021 (D2 L1). Indeed, they last lost three successive games in the top-flight without scoring in October 2018 under Mark Hughes.

Southampton vs Everton

15:58 , admin

Everton are currently enjoying their longest unbeaten spell in the Premier League under Frank Lampard (5 games – W1 D4); their longest such run since December 2020 (W4 D1). The Toffees haven’t enjoyed a longer unbeaten streak in a single season since November/December 2017 (7 games – W4 D3).

Southampton vs Everton

15:54 , admin

It may be scoreless at the break but this isn't a game that's been without incident. Everton have ran proceedings so far, with their midfield trident of Onana, Gueye and Iwobi particularily impressive. But the visiting side have failed to be incisive in the final third and have left Southampton with a chance to get back into the game in the second half.

Southampton vs Everton

15:42 , admin

Coleman clips a searching cross into the box from the right side but Walker-Pieters deals with it comfortably and sends it behind for a corner kick. Maupay wins a back-post header from the resulting set-piece but Bazunu is equal to his effort and holds the ball without a problem.

Both Southampton and Everton have chances at either end in a breathless passage of play - but neither side can muster a genuine effort on target and both come to nothing.

Southampton vs Everton

15:34 , admin

McNeil picks up the ball in a promising position on the right side of the pitch and comes inside on his favoured left foot only to run into traffic and lose the ball. Everton have dominated the opening half-hour but have nothing to show for it.

Southampton vs Everton

15:32 , admin

Everton break quickly following slick interplay from Iwobi, Gana and Onana, but Gray is unable to deliver the finishing touch with the final ball and Southampton deal with it.

Southampton try to build a promising passage of play only for Gueye to step up and win the ball back superbly. The Senegalese has been key so far in this one.
