Everton vs Southampton Prediction & Match Preview

Everton

Southampton

1 March 2021 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET Premier League Goodison Park

Buoyed by a 2-0 win over Liverpool in the Merseyside derby, Everton will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Southampton in the Premier League round 26. 

The Toffees regained a much-needed confidence at the weekend, with Richarlison once again proving his worth in Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s absence. 

Calvert-Lewin should be fit for the Southampton game, meaning that Richarlison will move to the left wing.

Defender Yerry Mina remains on the sidelines with a calf injury. The Saints, on the other hand, did well to hold Chelsea to a 1-1 draw in their last league match. 

Southampton aim to regain their spot in the top half of the standings, but given Everton’s display in the Merseyside derby, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the hosts. 

All Walker-Peters, Walcott, Diallo, Smallbone, and Obafemi remain on the sidelines for the visitors.

Team News:

Everton boss Ancelotti is expected to name both Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Allan in his starting XI on Monday night after both players made their return from injuries as substitutes against Liverpool.

Yerry Mina and Jean-Philippe Gbamin are still unavailable for selection, but the Toffees are otherwise in good shape, handing Ancelotti somewhat of a selection dilemma.

Seamus Coleman was excellent against Liverpool but could drop out as the hosts consider switching to a back four, while Andre Gomes is likely to drop out of the midfield to allow Allan to return.

As for Southampton, William Smallbone, Michael Obafemi, Kyle Walker-Peters, Ibrahima Diallo and Theo Walcott are all unavailable through injury, while a thigh problem will see on-loan Liverpool attacker Takumi Minamino miss out.

Oriol Romeu looks likely to miss the remainder of the season due to a fractured ankle, meanwhile, with Hasenhuttl's side suffering a number of injuries at a key stage of the campaign.

Danny Ings and Moussa Djenepo should return to the starting XI following the clash with Leeds, while there is expected to be another start in defence for Mohammed Salisu.

Everton possible starting lineup:
Pickford; Holgate, Godfrey, Keane, Digne; Doucoure, Davies, Allan; Rodriguez, Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison

Southampton possible starting lineup:
McCarthy; Bednarek, Salisu, Vestergaard, Bertrand; Djenepo, Armstrong, Ward-Prowse, Tella; Ings, Adams
