Everton vs Southampton: Match details
Match: Everton vs Southampton
Competition: Premier League
Date: March 1, 2021
Kick-off time: 8:00 pm, March 1, 2021 (UK time)
Stadium: Goodison Park
Betting prediction: Everton 2-1 Southampton
Everton should come into their home tie against a struggling Southampton-side on a considerable high after dispatching Liverpool in the Merseyside Derby. It was a badly needed three-point haul for the Toffees after they went on a run of three matches without logging a three-point haul, including a loss to Fulham.
Saints, ravaged by the injury bug, still have considerable threats in their expected matchday XI and if they can string together a full 90-minute performance, could give Everton a headache or two, especially through Danny Ings. All told, however, you’d expect Everton to roll on considering Southampton’s horrendous run of form that has seen them pick up just one point (1-1 draw with Chelsea) from a possible eighteen in recent weeks.
Everton vs Southampton: Recommended bets
Result/Both Teams to Score: Everton – Yes
Everton has logged just one clean sheet in their last six Premier League outings, so failing to do so yet again against a side in Southampton that does have a handful of avenues they can find a goal on few chances is hardly out of the realm of possibility. Everton is still the favorites here though and should come through in the end.
Halftime/Full-time: Draw – Everton
To their credit, Saints are one of those sides that are capable of flying out of the gates and looking odds-on to manufacture a strong result during the first half of matches. But so often we see them putter out as the match kicks on through the second half, and that’s a possibility here. Saints will have to fight, but Everton is just a better overall side, and under Ancelotti, they rarely are out of contention even if they start slow early.

Everton vs Southampton: Match preview
Everybody loves a derby win. For Evertonians, it was a feeling that was many may have forgotten or even never experienced depending on when they fell in love with the game. But Everton’s first Merseyside Derby win since 2010, and their first win at Anfield in over two-decades could genuinely be season-defining for Carlo Ancelotti’s Toffees. Sitting level on points with Liverpool and with a match in hand, while within legitimate striking distance of both the Europa League and Champions League places is exactly the effect that the Everton brass would have hoped bringing in Ancelotti would have had.
But it is not just about who Everton can hope to run down while they aim to climb further up the table by the end of the season, but who is not far behind them in the rearview mirror. Leapfrogging a struggling Liverpool would be the dream, but how long will Jürgen Klopp’s Reds remain a poor version of themselves? Aston Villa, Tottenham, and Arsenal are all capable of keeping within touching distance if Everton slips for any considerable period in the remaining months. This is where the guidance of an experienced head in Ancelotti comes into play. Not only has the board backed him appropriately in the market to get in the players he deemed necessary for the club to perform to its maximum capacity, but they put their faith in a man who has managed at the highest level of the sport across multiple top-level leagues – and clubs – and has the CV to show that this was possible if done the right way. It won’t be perfect, but it just has to remain consistent for the rest of the season.
It would be very typical Everton for them to drop points against the side with the worst recent form in the Premier League after beating Liverpool last weekend, but Ancelotti is hardly just any manager. It seems far more likely – in theory – that the Merseyside Derby win could be used as a propellant charge rather than an excuse to take their foot off the gas.
Many may think their upward trajectory as a club has come sooner than expected given the nature of the Premier League, but all facets of the club are full-steam ahead. The new stadium project at Bramley-Moore Docks was recommended for approval, their chief sponsor is moving into the Chinese market and a massive financial boost should come their way, and their squad building looks to be in good hands after they have been linked with interest in the likes of Max Aarons, Tariq Lamptey, and Abdallah Sima. Should they achieve Europe next season, their on-pitch product under the watchful eye of seasoned guidance in Ancelotti could put the Toffees in with a serious chance to become a long-term big club currently, not just historically.
Bad luck exposing a key component in Ralph Hasenhüttl’s plan
When you look at the nature of Southampton’s 2020-21 Premier League campaign, it is very easy to sit back and suggest that maybe the club brass got it wrong when they stuck by manager Ralph Hasenhüttl after the first time a Saints-side under his command surrendered nine goals. Though that same scoreline was seen a second time under the same man, which for many would be a sackable offense in of itself, Hasenhüttl remains on the touchline and the balance of the fanbase keep faith in him; mostly because of the manner of poor luck the club has been through this term regarding the ever-present injury bug residing at St. Mary’s Stadium.
The Austrian headmaster always wanted to keep his squad at a manageable size, with the rotation headache that comes with deeper squads who have Europe to contend with not being a necessary feature currently. Consistent performances from a consistent XI is hardly a strange concept, and that aspect cannot be used as a stick to beat the Graz-native with. But with the revolving door from the treatment room to the training pitch in a state of constant motion, damage control is the order of the day for a club that wanted to be aiming much higher than their current standing. The FA Cup could – and maybe will be – viewed with a different lens and considered the ultimate priority this term. However, Saints still have to make sure they can manage to crawl over the 40-point line and hope it will be enough. It likely will be, given the performances of the likes of Sheffield United and West Bromwich Albion.
Recent comments to the media suggest that Hasenhüttl has grown increasingly frustrated by a lack of experience in the team. Though his plans did not include a squad with the depth of the Manchester City’s or Chelsea’s of the world, the line he has had to walk this term going from first-team player to inexperienced project has made the injury bug that much more difficult to negotiate. The difference between Aston Villa and Southampton is not that great when you compare how over-reliant Dean Smith is on the same players week in week out. If similar poor luck found its way to Villa Park, it is likely that Villa would not have put together the season they have this term.
All that matters in the short term is avoiding a scrap with the relegation zone, however. Southampton has failed to win in their last eight in the Premier League (0-1-7), and a combined record of 1-4-8 in their last thirteen is in stark contrast to their form earlier in the year that saw them race out of the gates to a 7-2-3 record and dreams of Europe come the end of term. They may not beat Everton on Monday, but key upcoming clashes against Sheffield United and Burnley have to be targeted for a full point-haul if the Saints intend to march into the 2021-22 season with any confidence at all.
Everton team news vs Southampton
Carlo Ancelotti can be pleased about his selection options going into Monday’s clash with Southampton at Goodison Park. Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Allan could both make their returns to the matchday XI after starting on the bench in the Merseyside Derby last weekend.
Yerry Mina and Jean-Philippe Gbamin are confirmed to be unavailable still, while Fabian Delph is also listed as a doubt.
Expect Ancelotti to return to his preferred 4-3-3/4-2-3-1 for the Saints’ visit.
Southampton team news vs Everton
Southampton and manager Ralph Hasenhüttl cannot catch a break this season when it comes to the injury bug. At current, the Austrian headmaster is without Michael Obafemi, Takumi Minamino, Oriol Romeu, Kyle Walker-Peters, Will Smallbone, Theo Walcott, and Ibrahima Diallo.
At the very least, Saints can be pleased with Stuart Armstrong being back and ready for selection.
