A surprise clean sheet at Stamford Bridge followed by a backs to the wall 2-1 victory over Leicester City has seen a new defensive determination and continued momentum. The Merseysiders on the other hand, have struggled to find consistency in recent weeks. In spite of Evertons table superiority and relative parity with the form guide, SFC will surely feel confident of picking up all three points after their resurgence in form under the Austrian gaffer.

Goal Timings

It means the Toffees have still not won since a 22-0 victory in their opening pre-season friendly against Irdning but there were plenty of reasons to be cheerful as new signing Richarlison twice gave Everton the lead at Molineux on his debut. Everton opened their 2018/19 campaign with a 2-2 draw against Wolves despite having Phil Jagielka sent off for an ugly tackle.

They have kept three clean sheets in their eight games, but have conceded 11 goals in the other five matches. This includes their shipping of seven goals in their last three outings, so Everton will fancy their chances of breaking through this shaky Saints back line. Despite him being viewed as a defensively minded manager, Hughes Southampton side have been rather poor at the back this season.

While its true that cup form doesnt always translate to the league, this is far from the first time Southampton have blown a two-goal advantage. That of course doesnt even include all the times a one goal lead has been squandered. They have surrendered a brace against, Manchester United, Brighton, Derby County away, and then Derby at St Marys.

Everton Predicted Starting Line up

Jagielkas absence could mean Yerry Mina slots straight into the starting line-up for his debut, while Kurt Zouma is another option and both could even start together with Michael Keane dropping out. Elsewhere, Bernard is likely to be on the bench and Lucas Digne could make his first Toffees start. Richarlison is expected to shake off a knock to start against Southampton after a brilliant debut for Everton on the opening weekend, but Phil Jagielka will definitely miss out after his sending off in that 2-2 draw with Wolves.

Forster first showed promise during the loan spell with Norwich City, but it was the stint with Celtic that earned him wide acclaim and saw him become an England international. Originating from Hexham, Fraser Forster is an English goalkeeper who spent his early career at Newcastle United, but surprisingly did not make a single Premier League appearance during the seven years at St James Park.

They have conceded 12 goals in their eight competitive games this season, and while their own goals tally of 14 has brought the excitement back to Goodison Park its still not ideal for a side tipped for a comfortable top half finish in the table. This was the first time that Everton have kept a clean sheet all season, and its this lack of defensive stability that could be the real problem for Silva this season.

League Table

Everton havent exactly had a great start to the new season under the guidance of new manager Marco Silva. Compared to the rest of the top flight clubs, The Toffees have had possibly the easiest start of them all, but still they only managed to win two of their opening six league outings and suffered disappointing losses to West Ham and Arsenal in the process.

The Saints' lack of firepower makes it hard to back them, with Everton hoping to win on Marco Silva's home league debut in charge. Expert Verdict: Everton impressed against newly-promoted Wolves on the opening weekend, drawing 2-2 despite being down to ten men. Southampton, however, suffered the same problem they had last season - a lack of goals as they played out a 0-0 draw with Burnley.

For this reason, were backing Both Teams to Score on Tuesday along with a 2-1 win for Everton after Southamptons recent poor showings. They have scored in five of their eight games so far, and in facing this very open Everton side they will be confident in getting on the scoresheet themselves. Fortunately, Hughes has seen his side find the net on a regular basis as well.

If things go according to plan Saints will break quickly and look to trap the Merseysiders into silly passes or taking too much time on the ball. (according to the Guardian) the pace of potential starter Shane Long could be used to harass and stretch the defence. Fresh off his first Premier League goal of the season and in nine months.
