Bit of a head-scratcher this one. Eighth-placed Everton are the outsiders to beat eighteenth-placed Southampton at home.

That’s a Toffees team who have won ten of their eighteen matches at Goodison Park and come into this game off the back of consecutive wins against Newcastle and Huddersfield.

This is what Sam Allardyce said after the win at the John Smith’s Stadium: “It was a very good, excellent performance over the 90 minutes. I think the players’ qualities shone through in the end and our performance as the game went on got stronger and stronger.

“The way we took our two goals from Cenk Tosun and Idrissa Gueye showed the quality. The finishes were excellent and it could have been more.

“We got stronger and stronger. We frustrated Huddersfield and outplayed them in possession.”

Perhaps the same thing will happen against a Southampton team who have only won two games on the road this season and one of those was a 3-2 victory against a West Brom side who have been ropey for much of the campaign.

Mark Hughes’ side did manage to overcome Bournemouth last weekend but it was a close-run thing and this represents a tough assignment for the visitors.

We’re happy to back the Toffees and also bet on the home win to nil, with Allardyce trying to prove a point to the club’s supporters as he looks to take over on a longer-term basis.
