Paddy’s Preview: Southampton vs Everton

The Toffees should be in good heart after their nine-day break as they chase their fifth away win of the season against Southampton in Monday night’s live game.

Everton are unbeaten in their last five away games in all competitions and travel to St Mary’s for the first time in seven years to face Ian Adkins’ side.

The last time the sides played out a 0-0 draw was in 1993 and Paddy Power are betting 8/13 that both teams score and Everton’s 0-0 draw with Swansea last weekend was the first time since May 2012 that they had failed to score in a league game.

Manager David Moyes – who celebrates his 499th league game in charge – will be urging his side to get back in the goal-scoring groove against Southampton.

“It was frustrating,” he said.

“We had quite a few opportunities and made some chances but it was not enough, not clear enough chances really. On another day you take one and go on to win the game.”

Club captain Phil Neville celebrates his 36th birthday on Monday and is 33/1 to mark the occasion by scoring the first goal or 11/1 to score at anytime in the game as Everton go into the game having lost just one in 10 in all competitions.

The Toffees ran out 3-1 winners over the newly-promoted Saints at Goodison Park last September and are even money with Paddy Power to pick up all three points and complete the double for the season.

The home side had the game wrapped up 3-1 by half time and are 21/10 with Paddy Power to be leading at half time and full time against the Saints on Monday night.

Despite trailing to an early Gaston Ramirez strike, Moyes’ side showed their resilience to turn it around and are 17/2 to come from behind and win while a repeat of the 3-1 scoreline is 13/1 with Paddy Power.

Leon Osman and Nikica Jelavic hit the net for Everton four months ago and are 12/1 and 11/2 respectively to get the opening goal of the game as the Toffees look for their fifth win in 12 away games this season.

The England international to score and Everton to win 3-1 is 6/1 in Paddy Power’s Wincast market while Jelavic to score and Everton to win is 11/4 in the same market.

Everton to score exactly three goals is trading at 9/2 in the number of team goals market.

Jelavic has scored six times in the Barclays Premier League this season and is just two behind Everton’s leading scorer Marouane Fellainai and the Belgian international net-buster is 13/2 to hit the net at St Mary’s or 4/1 to score first for the Toffees.

John Heitinga, Kevin Mirallas, Tony Hibbert and Darron Gibson are all still likely to be sidelined through injury.
