Anthony Gordon to score anytime at 7/2 – ★

Solid Toffees proving resolute

After their near-miss from relegation last season, Everton fans will have been looking for their side to stabilise in the new season. Those fans may have been fearing the worst after a poor start but the Toffees have turned it around somewhat on the back of a series of solid defensive displays.

Frank Lampard’s side had drawn four Premier League games in a row before they eventually got their first win of the campaign, a hard fought 1-0 victory over West Ham. That result, coupled with an impressive display in the Merseyside derby in which they probably deserved all three points, have demonstrated that this team is more robust defensively than it was last campaign.

Up and down Saints need consistency

Southampton picked up a big result in August with a 2-1 victory over Chelsea at St Mary’s but since then have disappointed. Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men have since been beaten 1-0 by both Wolves and Aston Villa. The Saints brought in a number of young players in the summer and as they gel their squad together consistency may be a problem.

Goals an issue for both sides

Between them Everton and Southampton have netted just 13 times in 14 games this year and while Everton can point to injuries to their forwards, particularly Dominic Calvert-Lewin, an increased goal threat for both sides would be welcome.

Anthony Gordon has already netted twice for Everton this season, half of his tally for last season, and the dangerous wide player looks set to be even more influential this season. The youngster looks an interesting runner in the anytime goal scorer market.

Southampton predicted lineup: Bazunu; Walker-Peters, Bella-Kotchap, Salisu, Perrdaud; Ward-Prowse, Maitland-Niles; Elyounoussi, Aribo, Djenepo; Adams

Everton predicted lineup: Begovic; Coleman, Coady, Tarkowski, Mykolenko; Davies, Onana, Iwobi; Gray, Maupay, Gordon
