13th-placed Southampton will host 13th-placed Everton at the St Mary’s Stadium in their Premier League Matchday Nine tie on Saturday. The two sides sit level on seven points from seven matches and they will be fighting for maximum points in this fixture as they look to go three points above each other. Of the two sides Everton are in a good form, as they have gone unbeaten in their last five Premier League matches drawing four and winning one. They drew with Nottingham, Brentford, Leeds, and Liverpool before beating West Ham 1-0 at home last time out. The Toffee will therefore be looking to keep their momentum going on Saturday as they seek their second league victory back-to-back with the opening. They have however suffered five defeats in their last six visits to St Mary’s and they will need to play at the top of their game. Southampton suffered back-to-back 1-0 defeats to Wolves and Aston Villa prior to the international break. They have won one and lost three of their last four top flight matches, but the other defeat came against Man United and the win was a shocking one, but well deserved 2-1 over Chelsea. They will be looking to get back on track on Saturday when the Toffees come to town. They won 2-0 last season at home against Everton and they will be looking for a similar result this season.
