Southampton are due to play in a Premier League game against Everton at St Mary’s on Saturday afternoon, with the home faithful desperate for a morale-boosting three points.

Both sides are actually in similar positions in terms of form and position on the league standings.

Southampton and Everton have been poor so far this season and will need to get on song soon or they could be in the relegation dogfight.

The Saints will be fancying their chances of getting points from the game.

Everton have struggled defensively so far this season and Southampton do certainly have the potential to exploit Marco Silva’s sides defence.

The Toffees have won just one out of their last five Premier League games while Southampton have won none.

In relation to team news, Southampton full-back Cedric Soares is fit again and will be available for selection, according to a report published by BBC Sport.

Saints winger Moussa Djenepo could also be set to make his second Premier League start of the season after also returning to fitness.

The report added that Ryan Bertrand will miss the game due to suspension.

Southampton have a good record against Everton at home in the Premier League as they have defeated the Merseysiders 11 times in such games.

The Toffees have also lost four out of their previous six Premier League visits to St Mary’s. They won one 3-0, which came in August 2015.

Southampton need to end their poor run of form sooner rather than later.

They have won just two out of their previous 16 Premier League fixtures.

The hosts will also be up against a Toffees side which will also be fancying their chances of victory.
