Competition: Premier League
Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 7/10 @ 888sport
Looking to extend their stay at the top of the table, a high-flying Everton will make the trip to a resurging Southampton on Sunday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, while Southampton might have opened up the New Year with worrying back-to-back defeats, the Saints appear to have turned a real corner and will undoubtedly be boosted by a stunning comeback in the capital last weekend. Despite falling behind twice at Stamford Bridge last time out, the South Coast outfit managed to snatch an injury-time equalizer against Chelsea on their travels and have now managed to pick up seven points from their last three top-flight appearances. Unsurprisingly, one man to keep an eye out for on Sunday will be the red-hot Danny Ings. Once again finding the net against Champions League opposition last weekend, the 28-year-old former Liverpool striker has already racked up five goals in as many appearances for club and country.
As for the visitors, picking up what was the most controversial of 2-2 draws against Liverpool in last weekend’s Merseyside derby, the mood in Everton’s camp should still be at a real high. Still holding a three-point buffer over their bitter rivals and managing to extend on their unbeaten start to the New Year, the Blues have managed to get 13 points from their opening five appearances and have a real reputation for their clinical displays in the final third. Now bagging at least a pair of goals in each of their last seven matchups across all formats, they also have one leading marksman enjoying his own stunning purple patch. Finding the net once again last weekend, Dominic Calvert-Lewin got on the scoresheet on his England debut earlier in the month and is the first player to score in each of Everton’s first five league games in a season since 1939.
Bet: Both teams to score at Southampton vs Everton 7/10 for Sunday’s Premier League showdown @ 888sport
