Premier League Everton vs Southampton 8/14/2021 Prediction and Match Preview

Everton were excellent in the start of last season but injuries to key men and a couple of bad streaks did not allow them to grab a single European ticket for this season. They will now start the season by hosting Southampton on Saturday, who were also mediocre at best last season.

Everton made a perfect 4 wins in 4 matches last season and even grabbed a point from a draw against Liverpool. However, they had a tough time keeping the momentum and they eventually finished at the 10th spot of the league table (just 3 points behind the Conference League tickets). They finished with 17 wins 13 losses and 8 draw, scoring 47 and conceding 48 goals. However, it was a very unstable season with a lot of injury concerns (and red cards), especially to key men James Rodriguez and Richarlison. Everton were much better on the road (11 wins, 4 losses, 4 draws) than they were at home (6 wins, 9 losses, 4 draws) and that’s something they’ll need to change this season.

Southampton did not have a good season either, and they eventually finished at the 15th spot of the Premier League with 12 wins, 19 losses and 7 draw, scoring 47 goals but conceding 68 in the process (which was the 2nd worst defense in the Premier League). Southampton were not anything special at home (8 wins, 8 losses, 3 draws), but they were just terrible in their away matches. They had the 3rd worst away record in the league (4 wins, 11 losses, 4 draws), scoring just 19 goals (which was the 3rd worst offense) and conceding 43 in the process, which was the worst away defense in the entire Premier League. They lost Ings, Lemina and Bertrand to transfers, but did bring aboard 3-4 players that could possibly fill in the gaps created by those who left.

Everton vs Southampton. The two teams exchanged home wins last season, with Everton winning by 1-0 in this venue after losing by 2-0 in Southampton. Everton have been tremendous as hosts against Southampton over the years, going unbeaten in their last 17 matches (11-0-6). Siding with Everton to make a perfect start this season.
