Southampton FC vs Everton FC – Predicted Lineups and Betting Tips - Premier League 2019/20
Both Southampton and Everton are currently sitting at a place they would hate to be in. Both have gone through a very rough phase and showed a glimpse of their fighting spirit in their last match. Hence, it will be quite an occasion when the two teams will go head-to-head on Saturday (November 9).
After a horrific night at St Mary’s Stadium against Leicester City, Southampton have regrouped themselves well. They were leading against Manchester City for 70 minutes last week and put up a great display of character.
On the other hand, Everton showed great character as well against Tottenham Hotspur last week. After a Dele Alli goal and a terrible injury to Andre Gomes, Everton fought back to get a 97th-minute equalizer.
Let us have a look at the predicted lineups of both sides:
1. Southampton FC
After the nightmarish outing, he had against Leicester City, Angus Gunn has spent his time on the reserve bench. His stay on the bench is likely to continue, as Alex McCarthy is expected to be under the sticks against Everton. A clean sheet from McCarthy is trading at 3.65 on Bigpesa.
In a bid to rejuvenate and reinvent his side, Ralph Hasenhuttl is expected to play a 5-3-2 formation. Jan Valery, Jan Bednarek, Jack Stephens, Jannik Vestergaard, and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg are expected to form the backline for the saints.
The three-man midfield is expected to be comprised of James Ward-Prowse, Oriol Romeu and Stuart Armstrong. Having scored a great goal in the last match against Manchester City, Ward-Prowse is the likeliest goal-scorer amongst the trio. A goal from Ward-Prowse is trading at 5.6.
Danny Ings and Nathan Redmond are expected to pair up in an attack. Ings is one of the few Southampton players who are having a decent season. He is the likeliest goal-scorer for his team. A goal from the English forward is trading at 2.65.
2. Everton FC
Jordan Pickford is expected to be stationed under the goal post against Southampton. Marco Silva’s defence has been leaky this season, and hence a clean sheet from Pickford is trading at 3.3.
Despite a long list of absentees, Silva is expected to stick to his 4-2-3-1 formation. Djibril Sidibe, Yerry Mina, Mason Holgate, and Lucas Digne are expected to form the backline.
In Andre Gomes’ absence, Tom Davies and Fabian Delph are expected to provide double pivot, with Theo Walcott, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Alex Iwobi positioned in front of them. Sigurdsson is the likeliest goal-scorer amongst the midfielders. A goal from the Iceland international is trading at 4.7.
Brazilian attacker Richarlison is expected to be a lone man upfront. Having scored four goals already this season, he is Everton’s likeliest goal-scorer. A goal from Richarlison is trading at 3.5.
