22:435 months ago

Big Miss

84 | Superb play from Southampton as Armstrong links up with Tella before finding Djenepo in space inside the area but he blazes his first time effort wide of the top corner with Pickford beaten. He just had to hit the target!

It's been 23 years since Southampton either did the league double or won away at Everton... and they're going to have to do things the hard way tonight if they are to buck that trend
21:165 months ago


15 | Sigurdsson whips in a free kick from the right and picks out Richarlison, whose header is clawed away from the bottom corner by the diving Forster. The offside flag goes up against the Brazilian anyway
21:115 months ago

Richarlison strikes

Everton lead. Calvert-Lewin beats Ward-Prowse and Salisu in the air from Pickford's long ball to find Sigurdsson, and the playmaker threads a ball through to Richarlison who skips around Forster to fire into the net from a tight angle.

21:045 months ago

Promising Saints

Despite their poor form, Southampton have made the brighter start. They look sharp on and off the ball, but are yet to test Pickford.
