Hosts Southampton have won just once in their last seven fixtures and come into the match on the back of two successive defeats, including a 3-0 hammering by Liverpool last week.
Everton's woes are much more pronounced than the Saints' with the Toffees picking up just one victory in their last 11 games in all competitions, with the wounds from Thursday's humiliating 5-1 home defeat to Atalanta still stinging as they prepare to travel to St Mary's.

BETTING & MATCH ODDS
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Southampton are heavy favourites according to dabblebet, who price the Saints at 5/6 to win. Everton are considered a 15/4 bet to win, while a draw is available at 5/2.
A season that began with so much promise has transformed into an utter nightmare for Everton, who have been on a damaging downward spiral since late August.
The Toffees have struggled in all competitions and their dismal league form has been exacerbated by their elimination from the League Cup as well as the sheer humiliation they have endured in the Europa League.
Ronald Koeman paid the price with his job in October and, unfortunately for Blues fans, caretaker boss David Unsworth has been unable to steady the ship since then.
While there were signs of improvement in the last two games, a disastrous capitulation to Atalanta at Goodison Park has done little to assuage fears that the club could get sucked into a relegation battle.
Everton are just three points away from the drop zone, while Southampton are just four removed, so the clash at St Mary's on Sunday could potentially have serious implications for either side.
