Having picked up a huge point at Stamford Bridge last week—coming from two goals down as well—Southampton will be full of confidence when they take on Everton this weekend.
However, the south-coast side will face the top-four chasers under a new manager after Nigel Adkins was sacked and immediately replaced by former Espanyol manager Mauricio Pochettino.
The Saints were undefeated in their past five matches and are three points clear of the relegation zone, so Adkins' dismissal has come as a surprise to many. The team know that one slip-up could see them back in the scrap once more, so they'll clearly be desperate to avoid that happening here and impress their new boss.
The Toffees have been very strong this season, and they've been one of the better traveling teams in the league as well, so they'll hold no fear heading to St. Mary's Stadium.
David Moyes' team will play their consistent, pressing attack, and it will be up to the Saints to either make it or break it in this one. We could be in for an upset, or we could be in for another clinical display from the Merseyside men here.
