Soton may have to resort to second choice players, given the number of first choice players that are now unavailable through injury, illness or suspension.
Everton face their opponents, equal on points, both teams will doubtless be keen to make progress
Everton will take a huge positive from their recent 1-0 win against West Ham United at Goodison Park.
Also, a draw statistic of four in five matches is not all bad, but unfortunately will not bring the success Frank Lampard’s men wishes for ultimately. With a thirteenth position in the league and 1 wins, 2 losses and 4 draws, they currently have seven points in the League having won one game, drawn four meetings, and lost two fixtures.
Everton have drawn two meetings and lost one game of their three League matches playing away this season.
Everton will have 10 points if they manage to secure a victory.
A solid defensive team
Everton have conceded six goals so far, so their defence can be considered to be strong. Everton will be concerned at having only scored five goals so far this season. This season, their stand-out attacking players have been Anthony Gordon (2), Demarai Gray (1), and Neal Maupay (1).
Everton’s squad has depth, but even so, Frank Lampard is likely to be missing six of they key players when they start Saturday’s game.
