Commentary

What an end to the game! Southampton still climb out of the relegation zone on goal difference, West Brom survive another day, and the game between Swansea and Southampton now takes on incredible importance! Substitute Redmond looked to have grabbed a winner for the struggling Saints, but a cruel, stoppage-time, deflected goal from Davies denied them all three points after Yoshida had been sent off for a second yellow card. What a dramatic end to the game! It finishes 1-1 here at Goodison Park! 
S. Long
Yellow Card
90' + 7' Long is booked in the aftermath of that goal. 
T. Davies
Yellow Card
90' + 6' Goalscorer Davies picks up a yellow too. 
I. Gueye
Assist
90' + 6' Gueye picked up the pieces and squared it for Davies, but Hoedt's deflection was the meangingful touch. 
T. Davies
Goal
90' + 6' GOAL! A HAMMER BLOW FOR SOUTHAMPTON! In the SIXTH minute of added time, Bertrand passes up the chance to smash it clear and out of play and keeps the ball alive, before Davies' strike takes a massive deflection off Hoedt and goes in to break Saints hearts! 
90' + 5' Hojbjerg ignores Redmond and heads for the corner intelligently. Not long left now at all! 
90' + 4' SAVE! WHAT A SAVE! That strike was bound for the top corner, and McCarthy somehow got a hand to it and turned it behind! What a crucial save by the Saints stopper! 
W. Hoedt
Yellow Card
90' + 3' A rash, reckless challenge by Hoedt on the edge of the box earns him a yellow card and gives Everton a last chance to snatch an equaliser. 
90' + 2' Cedric limps off the field, momentarily reducing his side to nine men, but he returns without incident passing. 
90' + 1' FOUR minutes of added time for Southampton to hold on here.
90' CHANCE! Klaasen brings the ball down in the box and thumps a powerful effort straight at goal, but McCarthy keeps it out and the referee blows his whistle for handball anyway. 
89' Coleman's cross is claimed by McCarthy, much to the relief of the Southampton faithful. 
89' Southampton weather a spell of Everton pressure and then break well through Redmond, who drags his side up the pitch. Not long to go now for the Saints.
86' SAVE! Redmond slaloms his way down the left and fires one at goal that Pickford keeps out, and Klaasen picks up the pieces and gets his side forward! 
M. Yoshida
Yellow 2nd/RC
85' Yoshida is off! Southampton down to 10 men! Niasse just got a nick on the ball ahead of him, and Yoshida bundled him over for his second yellow card of the day! 
84' SAVE! Ward-Prowse tries to whip it in at the near post, but Pickford plucks it out of the air! 
84' Southampton win a free-kick as Long is fouled in the Everton half. A good opportunity to take their time over a set-piece.
82' MISS! Long pops the ball off his chest for Redmond, who surges through the middle before lashing a shot just over the bar! 
82' Baines' whipped corner is headed clear, and Bertrand hacks away for Hojbjerg to chase.
D. Klaassen
P. Jagielka
80' Klaasen comes on for Jagielka as Everton push for a goal in the last few minutes, going to a midfield diamond in a 4-4-2. 
79' Ward-Prowse's first corner is flicked behind by Funes Mori, and his second is interrupted by a foul in the box that goes Everton's way. 
79' Redmond checks in from the left and strikes one towards the near post, and a nick off a defender earns him a corner. 
M. Schneiderlin
Yellow Card
77' Schneiderlin picks up a yellow card for a hefty lunge, and it's been a booking that's been coming. 
S. Long
C. Austin
76' With the Saints in the lead, Austin is replaced by workhorse striker Long in an obvious bid to see out the remainder of this game. 
75' Redmond nicks the ball away from one challenge and races down the pitch, but can't do it all on his own as he checks inside and runs into Gueye, before Hoedt makes an excellent challenge from a ball down the line. 
73' Everton pile the pressure on as they work it wide and into the box, but the Saints just about survive for the time being. 
M. Yoshida
Yellow Card
71' Yoshida receives a yellow card for a high boot on Funes Mori.
J. Ward-Prowse
D. Tadić
70' Tadic is replaced by Ward-Prowse for the final 20 minutes or so. 
69' CHANCE! Tadic runs down the inside-left channel before releasing Bertrand down the left, whose cross is headed over the bar by Jagielka, who hadn't seen that Pickford was coming for it. 
67' Everton much more positive now, as they play the ball well in midfield, but Schneiderlin's through-ball to Keane on the right is overhit. 
65' CHANCE! Niasse causes all sorts of problems for the visitors, racing down the right and cutting back, but his left-footed cross to the back post has too much height and pace on it!
62' MISS! Baines' corner is very deep, and is headed clear, before it's lofted back in for Keane to head wide. 
61' Everton bustle forward down the right through Coleman and Niasse, and win a corner. They need to respond here. 
O. Niasse
N. Vlašić
58' The anonymous Vlasic is replaced by Niasse as Allardyce looks to get his side back into the game. 
Cédric Soares
Assist
56' Cedric's cross was pinpoint, and lofted in such a way that none of the Everton defenders could really head it clear. Great drive and desire from the right-back. 
N. Redmond
Goal
56' GOAL! The substitute scores a vital goal for Southampton!! Tadic plays the ball through for a charging Cedric, who lofts a fantastic cross to the back post, where Redmond arrives to head down and into the back of the net! It's 1-0 to Southampton! 
55' Bertrand then wins a corner, which Tadic delivers flat with plenty of pace, but it's headed away well. 
55' Everton have been much better at the start of this half, but an attack breaks down in the final third as a pass is picked off.
Oriol Romeu
Yellow Card
53' Tosun is bundled over by Romeu in a promising position, and picks up a yellow card that he knew was coming. 
51' Redmond just can't latch onto a cross-field pass aimed his way as he looks to stretch the game.
49' Funes Mori has a hairy moment as he dallies in possession at the back, before Jagielka cleans up with a hefty clearance. Not a good start for the substitute! 
46' And we're back underway!
N. Redmond
M. Lemina
46' Lemina also makes way at half-time, having picked up a knock, while Redmond comes on to provide extra attacking influence.
Ramiro Funes Mori
Y. Bolasie
46' Funes Mori replaces Bolasie at half-time as Allardyce switches to a back three. 
A cagey first half remains goalless at the break, with Pickford's fantastic save from Austin's fierce half-volley the highlight of the game so far. Hughes may spot a crucial three points on the horizon here against a flat home side and an unhappy home crowd, who have not been impressed with their side so far. Southampton may come out swinging in the second half, and could well haul themselves out of the relegation zone. 
45' + 1' Boos ring around Goodison Park as the half-time whistle goes. It's 0-0 at the break!
C. Austin
Yellow Card
45' Austin plays the ball to Bertrand rather than to his other options down the right, and the left-bakc's touch is heavy, allowing Coleman the chance to break. Austin tugs him back, and duly receives his yellow card. 
44' Lemina goes down injured and hobbles off for some treatment, but has returned to the field to see out the first half. 
42' McCarthy comes for another cross and punches well-clear this time. He's displayed a commanding presence today, carrying on from his excellent showing against Bournemouth. 
41' Southampton really piling on the pressure now as they work it around in the final third quickly, but Gueye gets back well to deny Lemina and then Tadic shooting opportunities. 
40' CHANCE! A very clever ball releases Hojbjerg in some space, who then slips Austin in behind, but he's just crowded out as he tries to hit it first-time.
39' Tadic lines up a free-kick from a good distance out, but drives it low into the two-man wall and wastes the opportunity. 
38' SAVE! Baines curls in an excellent cross from a free-kick on the right, but McCarthy makes a very confident catch to quell the danger. 
36' OFFSIDE! Tadic is clearly offisde as he hangs just behind the two Everton centre-halves, and the flag goes up as the ball is played in behind for him. 
35' Bolasie gets beyond his man and crosses into the mix, but McCarthy is out well to catch and relieve the pressure. 
33' Southampton have a nice spell of possession, but can't work that final pass in behind. There's no space behind the Everton back-line at the moment, and Pickford has dealt ably with what's been thrown his way so far. 
31' Southampton nick it on the right and play a clever one-two to release Cedric. The right-back nearly runs it out of play, but salvages it and crosses deep for Lemina, but it's over his head. Delivery from the wide areas needs to be better. 
28' CHANCE! Huge opportunity for Southampton as Romeu thumps a deflected effort at goal that Pickford keeps out, before Austin smashes one into a blue shirt, and Southampton just can't quite work another chance. Pickford standing firm so far. 
27' CHANCE! It's a clever ball by Tadic from a free-kick as he slides it down the line for Bertrand, but it's just a touch heavy and the left-back's cross is flashed out of play as he struggled to reach it. 
25' Baines curls in a lovely, early cross, but Yoshida does well to put Davies off, and the midfielder's header bounces well wide. 
22' Bolasie works his way down the right, manages to get a yard and then whips his cross far too long towards the back post. 
20' SAVE! Austin hits a venomous strike on the half-volley that looks to be creeping right into the top corner, but Pickford stretches to make a crucial save! 
16' OFFSIDE! Hojbjerg races down the left into some rare space, but the linesman's flag goes up for offside. That was a very harsh call there - and there was a very promising attack on the cards. 
15' Schneiderlin tries to play the ball over the top of the Southampton defence for Davies, but it's ushered behind. Neither side really commiting themselves forward here, leaving few gaps behind them. 
13' MISS! A cross from the right is met well by Tosun, but his header lands on the roof of the net. 
12' Very cagey so far, Southampton not wanting to give anything away here. 
10' Bolasie attacks the ball at the back post, but Bertrand does well to put him off and McCarthy can gather gratefully. 
9' Tadic pings one over the top for Austin, who had made a good run, but he doesn't quite have the pace to make it and Pickford collects. 
6' An Everton attack breaks down in the final third and Tadic leads the charge for a counter-attack, but is hauled down by former Saints midfielder Schneiderlin before he can pick Austin out. 
4' Bertrand gets into space on the left, and crosses firmly to the back post where Cedric is arriving, but it's overhit and goes out for a throw-in. 
3' MISS! Both sides just feeling their way into this game, and Davies just curls a low effort wide of the bottom corner with his weaker left foot. Decent effort from a difficult angle there. 
1' And we're off in this crucial fixture for Southampton, who will be looking to take another huge step towards a great escape. Swansea's loss to Bournemouth means that a draw takes them out of the bottom three on goal difference, but a win would do them a world of good. 
However, Southampton have to reverse that today if they are to have a good chance of staving off the drop, and are looking to secure back-to-back Premier League victories for the first time since April 2017, when they beat Crystal Palace and West Brom, while also adding what would be just their third away win in the Premier League so far this season (D7 L8).
There has been just one away win in the last 17 league meetings between these sides (W11 D5), with Everton picking up a 3-0 victory at St Mary's in August 2015. 
Everton have lost just one of their 18 previous Premier League home games against Southampton (W13 D4), losing 0-2 in November 1997, but the Toffees have little left to play for in the remainder of the season. 
Southampton's win in their last match was just their second in 22 league games as they fight desperately for survival, while hosts Everton have suffered just one defeat in seven games, a run which has included four victories.
Mark Hughes makes just one change following his side's morale-boosting 2-1 win over Bournemouth, dropping Redmond to the bench for Hojbjerg. Boufal is not included following his recent dispute with the Southampton manager. 
Dominic Calvert-Lewin is out, having suffered a small stress fracture in his back, while defender Mason Holgate has returned to training after an ankle injury, but this game comes too soon. James McCarthy (broken leg), Gylfi Sigurdsson and Eliaquim Mangala (both knee) remain long-term absentees.
Sam Allardyce makes two changes to the Everton side that beat Huddersfield last time out, with experienced Englishmen Wayne Rooney and Theo Walcott missing out altogether. They are replaced by Davies and Bolasie, respectively.
