Everton will look to build on their first win of the season against West Ham as they travel to St. Mary’s to face Southampton this afternoon.
The victory ensured Everton would not spend the duration of the international break in the bottom three and put them level on points with today’s opponents Southampton.
The Saints have experienced an inconsistent start to the new season, accumulating seven points from their opening seven matches.
After beating Chelsea 2-1 in late August in a brilliant display, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side come into this game having lost their last two games narrowly to Wolves and Aston Villa.
