Everton did fine in the Christmas period as they've collected 4 points in 2 away games (2:0 Leicester, 2:2 Hull). Perhaps they were aiming for a better result against Hull, nevertheless The Toffees showed some good fotball in that match as well. There shouldn't be any fresh injuries, so Besic, Bolasie, McCarthy and perhaps Stekelenburg remain sidelined. Southampton play pretty poorly nowadays, their level of play is low and they lack shots on goal. The Saints suffered from 2 home defeats in past few days (1:4 Tottenham, 1:2 West Brom). Southampton have very tough schedule as this is going to be the third match for them in just 6 days. Everton have better calendar and hosts had 3 days to prepare for this clash, whereas Southampton just 2 days. Pied, Austin, Targett, Clasie continue to be sidelined for Southampton and now also key defender van Dijk is suspended. In my opinion hosts are favourites of this encounter.
