The Premier League is back in action with another crucial fixture this weekend as Everton lock horns with Southampton at Goodison Park on Monday. Both teams have been inconsistent this season and will want to win this fixture.

Everton are in seventh place in the Premier League standings and will want to secure European qualification this season. The Toffees stunned Merseyside rivals Liverpool last week and will be confident ahead of this match.

Southampton, on the other hand, have endured a shocking slump after an excellent start to their campaign and are in 14th place in the league table. The Saints suffered a 3-0 defeat to Leeds United in their previous game and will look to bounce back on Monday.

Everton have a good record against Southampton and have won 12 matches out of a total of 30 games played between the two teams. Southampton have managed only nine victories against Everton and will want to improve their record in this match.

The previous meeting between the two teams took place in October last year and ended in a 2-0 victory for Southampton. Everton struggled to break the Saints down on the day and will have to put in a better effort this weekend.
