Southampton (Away) 1st October

Romey 1878

Recommended Posts

  • Southampton beat Everton 2-0 in February - and are looking to pick up consecutive Premier League victories against them for the first time since December 2014.

  • Everton have lost seven of their past nine away league games against Southampton (W2), more than they had in their previous 22 such visits to Saints (W8 D8 L6).

  • Everton are currently enjoying their longest unbeaten spell in the league under Frank Lampard (5 games –W1 D4); their longest such run since December 2020 (W4 D1).

  • Southampton recorded their first home league win of the season in their last such game against Chelsea (2-1), and could record successive league victories at St Mary’s for the first time since February, when they beat both Everton and Norwich 2-0.

  • Southampton have conceded the opening goal of a game in more league games than any other side this season (6), each of which has come in the past six fixtures in the competition.

Poor first half from both sides. We looked slightly more dangerous but just too sloppy both in terms of our passing and first touch to create direct chances. Iwobi made us go, though I thought even he looked a bit sloppier than usual. 

When McNeil was able to get space I thought he put a couple very nice balls in. That said, his lack of pace was clear that half as he had a tough time gaining the space to get comfortable on the ball. Would like to see Gordon on sooner than later.
