Everton Form

Everton had a patchy pre-season following the appointment of Rafa Benitez. The Toffees drew 1-1 with Millonarios and beat Pumas MNAM 1-0 before a 4-0 away defeat against Man United.

Everton were winless in nine of their last 12 Premier League matches towards the end of last season. They slipped from the European places to 10th after a poor finish to their campaign.

Forward James Rodriguez should start despite a recent ankle injury. 

Winger Moise Kean and midfielders Andre Gomes and Jean-Philippe Gbamin are doubtful.

Southampton Form 

Southampton won three of their pre-season friendlies, defeating Cardiff (4-0), Swansea (3-1) and Levante (1-0) before a 3-1 home defeat to Athletic Bilbao. 

The Saints ended their 2020/21 campaign with one of the worst away records in the league, losing 10 of their last 11 on the road. 

Southampton Team News

Captain James Ward-Prowse could miss out due to an ankle injury. 

New signings Adam Armstrong and Armando Broja could miss out due to fitness concerns.

Everton and Southampton come into the new campaign after disappointing 2020/21 seasons. Neither side has gained momentum in pre-season, so I am backing a score draw.
