Southampton will entertain Everton on Saturday afternoon at St Mary’s stadium looking to extend their three game unbeaten streak, whilst the Toffees are also coming on the back of two wins. They are currently taking 10th place and will be battling for the 7th place, as they have no chance of a top 6 finish. The Saints on the other hand will try to stay away from the relegation zone, after staying there for a big part of the season so far. Last time out they triumphed at Leicester 1:2, having to play with a man down the entire second half. Everton also won their last outing after two second half goals, but they experienced some nervy moments late in the game, when Bournemouth were pressing for an equalizer.
