Commentary

That's all for today. Thank you for following our coverage. Until next time, goodbye!
Both sides are on their travels on Sunday. Everton head to Molineux to face Wolves, while Southampton take on Manchester United at Old Trafford.
The spoils are shared at Goodison Park as Everton and Southampton play out a 1-1 draw. Both sides miss out on the chance to close the gap on the top half of the Premier League table after Richarlison cancelled out Danny Ings' earlier effort. James Ward-Prowse also missed a penalty for the Saints, whose long wait for victory on this ground continues.
90' + 2' FULL-TIME: EVERTON 1-1 SOUTHAMPTON
L. Digne
Yellow Card
90' + 1' After the referee points for a goal kick, Digne is adamant his cross took a deflection off Ward-Prowse. However, he takes his protest a little too far and is booked.
90' No team has conceded more stoppage-time goals than Everton in the Premier League this season. With Southampton asking more questions going forward, the Toffees will be desperate to avoid letting a point slip here.
W. Smallbone
S. Armstrong
88' That is Armstrong's last action of the game as he is withdrawn in favour of youngster Will Smallbone.
86' Chance! Bertrand pumps the ball into the box and it drops to the edge of the box, where Armstrong is unable to keep his volley down. It was difficult for the former Celtic man to keep under control.
84' Good defending! The Saints come marching forward and Ings clips a neat ball towards the far post, where Long is lurking. However, Coleman does not take his eyes off the ball and manages to head it away to safety.
82' Southampton enjoying more possession as the clock ticks down but, like their opponents, are not carrying too much of a threat with it. You feel that one piece of individual quality will be enough to take the points here.
80' Three of the last four meetings between the sides have ended with a 2-1 scoreline. Can either of them find a winner as we enter the final 10 minutes at Goodison Park?
78' It is a similar scenario for Southampton with Ings having netted 19 of their 43 Premier League goal this season. His closest challenger is Ward-Prowse, who has just five to his name.
76' Bernard is Everton's third-highest scorer in the Premier League this season. However, his tally of just three epitomises the Toffees' reliance for goals on Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison who, between them, have netted 25 of their 41 in the top flight this term.
Bernard
A. Gordon
74' Gordon's day is over as he goes off to be replaced by the more experienced Bernard.
71' Kean looks to get involved immediately as he bursts into the box and gets the better of Walker-Peters. However, the former Juventus man is eventually penalised for a foul on Stephens.
S. Long
C. Adams
70' The other Southampton change sees Adams make way to be replaced by Shane Long.
P. Højbjerg
Oriol Romeu
69' A double change from Southampton. The first sees Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg introduced in favour of Romeu.
M. Kean
D. Calvert-Lewin
68' Calvert-Lewin heads over from a corner and that will be his last action of the game as he is replaced by Moise Kean.
67' Better ball needed! A great opportunity for Everton as Gordon advances into the heart of the Southampton defence. Digne has acres of space to his left, but a poor ball from the youngster allows the visitors to recover and clear.
66' Still 1-1 as we approach the final quarter of the game. A draw is a result neither side will want as they aim to close the gap on 10th-place Tottenham.
64' Southampton will be relieved that Bednarek remains on the field. Prior to today, no player had made more clearances than the Polish defender in the Premier League this season. Only Burnley's James Tarkowski matched his tally of 184.
62' Digne's free-kick and Sigurdsson's subsequent follow-up are both blocked before McCarthy gets down well to keep out Sidibe's low effort.
J. Bednarek
Yellow Card
61' A sloppy pass is pounced on by Richarlison, who bursts through before being brought down by Bednarek on the edge of the box. Due to Richarlison going slightly away from goal, the defender is shown a yellow card as opposed to a red.
58' Good defending from Keane at the other end. Neat link-up play between Armstrong and Redmond, who looks to thread the ball through for Ings. However, Keane reads the situation well to clear and deny his former Burnley team-mate a sight on goal.
56' CHANCE! Davies shows tremendous vision as he clips a wonderful ball over the Southampton defence for Calvert-Lewin to run onto. Everton's top scorer is unable to sort his feet out quickly enough, though, and the chance goes begging.
54' Once again, Everton trying to be direct and make something happen from the flanks. Only four teams have delivered more crosses in the Premier League this season.
52' Everton look to threaten at the other end and Sidibe's cross is only cleared as far as Sigurdsson, who pulls his volley well wide of the goal.
49' The free-kick deflects behind for a corner, from which an almighty scramble ensues and another corner before Everton eventually deal with the pressure.
47' The Saints have a free-kick in a good position after Armstrong is brought down by Keane on the edge of the box. It is just to the right of goal and very much in Ward-Prowse territory.
46' Southampton go straight onto the attack and Adams looks to curl one into the top corner, but Pickford beats the ball away.
D. Sidibé
A. Iwobi
46' Everton make a change at the break as Iwobi makes way for Djibril Sidibe.
46' Off we go! Southampton get the ball rolling once more.
Having been the better side for most of the half, Southampton will be slightly disappointed not to have taken a lead into the break. Remember, they are targeting a first win at Goodison Park in 15 attempts today.
Honours even at the break as Richarlison struck the equaliser just before half-time to cancel out Danny Ings' earlier effort. Just before Ings' breakthrough, Southampton wasted a golden opportunity when James Ward-Prowse's penalty came back off the crossbar.
45' + 7' HALF-TIME: EVERTON 1-1 SOUTHAMPTON
45' + 6' Bednarek is given the thumbs-up and returns for the final few seconds of this first half.
45' + 5' A worry for Southampton as Bednarek stays down following an accidental aerial collision with McCarthy. The defender makes his way to the touchline and should be fine to continue.
45' + 3' We are into the third of four additional minutes at the end of this first half.
D. Calvert-Lewin
Yellow Card
45' + 1' A brief melee ensues after that Richarlison challenge and Calvert-Lewin is booked for his part in the process.
Richarlison
Yellow Card
45' + 1' After a late challenge on Adams, Richarlison can have no complaints as he is shown a yellow card.
45' Out of nowhere, Everton are level. The hosts have struggled for the best part of this first half, but would be delighted to go in all-square at the break.
L. Digne
Assist
44' Digne was the provider with a magnificent crossfield ball to pick out Richarlison.
Richarlison
Goal
44' RICHARLISON!!! 1-1! The Brazilian equalises for Everton! Digne demonstrates terrific vision as he picks out the run of Richarlison with a wonderful crossfield pass. The former Watford man controls beautifully before finishing well past McCarthy.
43' Sigurdsson will be looking to make a difference to Everton and it is fair to say he enjoys playing against Southampton. The Icelandic international has scored five Premier League goals against the Saints; his best tally against any side in the competition.
G. Sigurðsson
André Gomes
42' Everton forced into an early change as a struggling Gomes limps off to be replaced by Gylfi Sigurdsson.
40' Everton look to find a way back into the game as Digne whips a free-kick over from the near touchline. Mina gets his head on the end of the delivery, but cannot keep the ball down. Although, the offside flag had already been raised.
37' In opening the scoring, Ings has now found the net in four of the last five meetings between the sides. That is also the fifth Premier League game in which he has scored against Everton, although he is yet to end on the winning side and will be hoping that changes today.
35' Gordon wants a penalty after going to ground under a challenge from Walker-Peters in the box. However, the referee is not interested and waves away the youngster's appeal.
J. Stephens
Yellow Card
34' Stephens is booked for a rash challenge on Richarlison.
33' That is goal number 19 for Ings in the Premier League this season. Only Jamie Vardy and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang stand in his way in the race for the golden boot.
S. Armstrong
Assist
31' Not too sure he meant for it to happen, but an assist for Armstrong after his scuffed shot broke kindly for Ings.
D. Ings
Goal
31' INGS!!! 1-0 SOUTHAMPTON! The man in-form puts the Saints in front! Ings just about stays onside as Armstrong's scuffed shot falls perfectly for him. He then does brilliantly to adjust his feet quickly and skip around Pickford before slotting home.
30' That is only the second time in six attempts that Ward-Prowse has failed to convert a penalty. With the race for the Premier League golden boot hotting up, Ings may well be taking the next one for the Saints.
J. Ward-Prowse
Penalty Miss
28' OFF THE BAR! Chance wasted for Southampton as Ward-Prowse's penalty crashes against the woodwork and out of play!
27' PENALTY TO SOUTHAMPTON! Moments after Ings hits the woodwork, the Saints have a penalty after Gomes brings down Ward-Prowse in the box. The skipper will take the kick...
26' GOOD DELIVERY! Southampton have a free-kick that Ward-Prowse whips towards goal with pace. Pickford watches the flight of the ball all the way and just about tips it over the bar.
24' That was a marvellous delivery by Digne from the left flank. That has been a regular occurrence for Everton this season. In fact, only Trent Alexander-Arnold and Kevin De Bruyne have delivered more crosses than the Frenchman in the Premier League.
22' GOOD SAVE! Nothing comes of the free-kick but Everton maintain the pressure and Digne whips in a delicious cross that reaches Iwobi at the far post. The former Arsenal man has time to take a touch and take aim, but McCarthy gets strong palms on his powerful strike.
21' Everton with a chance to relieve the pressure on themselves as they are awarded a free-kick by the near touchline after Gordon is tripped by Ward-Prowse. This is a good opportunity to get the ball in the box and ask questions of the Southampton defence.
19' The Saints are by far the stronger of the two sides at the moment. Over the last five minutes, they have enjoyed a whopping 86 per cent of possession, but will be desperate to make their superiority tell.
17' Get out of the way! At the other end, Ings lays the ball to the edge of the area for Ward-Prowse to strike. The Southampton skipper goes for precision, but Adams unwittingly gets in the way and deflects his effort away from goal.
15' Digne stands over the resulting free-kick and goes for goal, but the former Paris Saint-Germain left-back just does not get enough whip on his delivery.
S. Armstrong
Yellow Card
14' Armstrong is shown the first yellow card of the game for a foul on Richarlison, who was threatening to break away for Everton.
13' Unlucky! Ward-Prowse tries to pick out the deep run of Walker-Peters from right-back with a well-judged ball into the box. The Tottenham loanee hesitates at the vital moment, though, and is just unable to recover in time as the ball runs behind for a goal kick.
11' At the other end, Gordon cuts inside from the left and looks to send Calvert-Lewin on his way with a through ball that just lacks the necessary accuracy that would have put the number nine in behind.
8' NO GOAL! OFFSIDE! Southampton think they have the lead as Armstrong turns the ball home from close range. But the former Celtic winger's joy is short-lived as he is rightly denied by the offside flag.
7' After good link-up play with Adams, Ings looks to get his sight on goal. However, Digne reads the situation well and gets his body in the way of the in-form striker.
4' An ever-present between the sticks this season, Pickford has conceded just two goals since Everton's return to action. Although, only four goalkeepers have let in more goals than England's number one during the campaign.
2' Everton make a promising start and Gordon's dangerous free-kick is turned behind for the game's first corner. Although, the Southampton defence stands firm and the hosts end up playing the ball all the way back to Pickford.
1' Lee Mason is our referee today. He blows his whistle and Everton get the match underway.
The teams are making their way onto the field. Kick-off is coming up shortly.
A tough game to call but if the odds were based on fortunes at Goodison Park, then it would favour Everton, who are unbeaten in the Premier League here since last November. Meanwhile, you have to go back to November 1997 for Southampton’s last victory on this ground.
As for Southampton, it is no surprise that Ralph Hassenhuttl names an unchanged side from Sunday’s win over Manchester City. That means after scoring the winner with his first goal for the club, Che Adams keeps his place up front alongside leading marksman Danny Ings. On the bench, there is a welcome return for Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, who has recovered from an ankle injury that ruled him out of the Saints’ last two games.
Carlo Ancelotti makes two changes to the side that started Everton’s defeat at Spurs. Yerry Mina replaces the injured Mason Holgate in the heart of defence, while Anthony Gordon comes in on the left wing with Gylfi Sigurdsson dropping to the bench. Alex Iwobi has shaken off a knock from Monday to start on the right.
SUBS: Angus Gunn, Kevin Danso, Jake Vokins, Alex Jankewitz, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Will Smallbone, Will Ferry, Michael Obafemi, Shane Long.
SOUTHAMPTON (4-4-2): Alex McCarthy; Kyle Walker-Peters, Jack Stephens, Jan Bednarek, Ryan Bertrand; Stuart Armstrong, Oriol Romeu, James Ward-Prowse (captain), Nathan Redmond; Che Adams, Danny Ings.
SUBS: Maarten Stekelenburg, Jarrad Branthwaite, Leighton Baines, Djibril Sidibe, Beni Baningime, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Theo Walcott, Bernard, Moise Kean.
EVERTON (4-4-2): Jordan Pickford; Seamus Coleman (captain), Yerry Mina, Michael Keane, Lucas Digne; Alex Iwobi, Andre Gomes, Tom Davies, Anthony Gordon; Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison.
It is 11th against 12th in the Premier League, with both sides aiming to close the gap on 10th-place Tottenham Hotspur, who beat Everton on Monday. The Toffees are looking to bounce back, while Southampton are eyeing a third consecutive victory.
