It looks like a home win for Everton this Saturday afternoon at Goodison Park. Everton did well to get 2-2 at Wolverhampton after playing with 10 men for over 50 minutes. Southampton played a really bad game at home against Burnley, where they were unfortunate to get 0-0. Everton has invested heavily in the squad in recent years. Not least in the recently closed transfer window, Bernard, Andre Gomes and Yerry Mina still work in their form, but may play some role in this game. The optimism of the Liverpool club is great, not least after signing a new and exciting manager in the shape of Marco Silva, a much more modern and offensive coach than his predecessor - good old Sam Allerdyce. However, Everton were 10-4-5 home last season, and lost just one of their last 7 Premier League matches.
Mark Hughes relegated Stoke last season, but finally saved Southampton with a bit of luck. Southampton is a selling club and even though you have invested in a little quality, the squad does not have qualities like Evertons. Southampton is not particularly strong out where they last season were 3-8-8. The opening game against Burnley showed great problems in attack and, on the whole, it looks like a new season at the bottom of the table for Southampton, while I see Everton in Top 8.
