Thankfully, we are locked down or else Everton fans would be having bus tours around the city after beating Liverpool in the derby last week! The Toffees defended brilliantly at Anfield and you could see how fired up for it they were.

There were so many good performances in Carlo Ancelotti’s side last weekend and the manager will be delighted with them. Everton have now won 12 of their 24 games in the Premier League this season, which is quite something. Obviously, there’s not a lot of draws (four) going on in there and the campaign has been a bit of a roller-coaster for them.

But, if that 2-0 victory in the derby doesn’t gee them up, I don’t know what will. However, Southampton can take a little bit of hope from Everton’s home form, because that is where The Toffees have got a bit lackadaisical and it’s where they’ve come undone this season. That’s the one thing Carlo Ancelotti has got to fix.

What has gone wrong with Southampton? It’s mind-boggling! They were beaten 3-0 by Leeds last Tuesday and it leaves you asking where these poor performances are coming from? The Saints have lost seven of their last eight Premier League games.

In fact, looking at my stats, they’ve only won one of the last 13 league games and who was that against? Liverpool! It’s just totally doom-and-gloom for them at the moment. They did get a nice win over Wolves to advance round to the next round of the FA Cup, but that’s been the only bright spark recently.

Everton To Win To Nil

I can’t see any way of Southampton winning this. I’m actually thinking Everton could win the game 3-0, if you’d like a shot at a Correct Score bet.

But, the safer play is Everton To Win To Nil, because I believe they’ll easily win this game against an ailing Saints outfit.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin To Score Two Or More Goals

I also fancy Dominic Calvert-Lewin to bag a few here. He came on as a sub against Liverpool and has had another week’s rest in his return from a hamstring injury. He’s more than capable of grabbing a brace (or more) against a very low on confidence Southampton backline.
