Reason for Everton vs Southampton Predictions
Fresh off a first Merseyside Derby win since 2010, Carlo Ancelotti’s team are well placed to fight for a top-four finish and should secure all three points against a Southampton. However, they still have issues getting the job done at Goodison Park, losing four of their last five winless outings here this year, while only Brighton and the bottom three in the table have picked up fewer points at home this season. However, you have to think that a Merseyside derby victory is going to give this side a huge boost, not to mention the fact that they’re currently in a position to jump up to level on points with fifth-placed Chelsea should they win their game in hand. Richarlison is the team’s best player, the Brazilian played great last season, and the big clubs want this player in their squad. Bernard is a great player, and with one move, he can create problems for the opponent. He has excellent dribbling, and in the one-on-one game, he is unstoppable.
The Saints drew with Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea at the weekend as Takumi Minamino became the first opposition player to score against them from their seven games under the new manager. However, they followed that result up with a 3-0 defeat at Leeds in midweek. Still, with Ralph Hasenhuttl leaving Danny Ings and Takumi Minamino on the bench, it was perhaps a tactic of preserving his key men than to allow the high pressing Whites to empty their tanks for the foreseeable future. No matter, they’re now on a run of seven defeats from eight winless outings, and if they don’t get their act together, they’ll find themselves in the relegation battle, with them currently just eights clear of 18th placed Fulham with 13 games to go. We would be concerned about the potential absence of the Saints’ key players Oriol Romeu, Kyle Walker-Peters, and Ibrahima Diallo. Theo Walcott is a guy who makes a lot of trouble for the opponent on the left flank. He has speed and an excellent one-on-one game. Che Adams enjoys the pitch, when he receives the ball and goes towards the goal, the opponent has problems, he is strong, and it is challenging to keep this guy.
Everton is the favorite in this match, as they are in better shape than their opponents. Everton has no right to make mistakes if they think they are attacking a place for the Champions League.
We can expect a big fight between these two teams, and both of them should be able to score. We don’t believe either side will keep the clean sheet.
