Everton v Southampton: Sticky start for the Toffees
Rafa Benitez takes charge of Everton for the first time on Saturday, and Paul Robinson expects their game against Southampton to be a low-scoring affair.
Big pressure on Benitez from the off
Saints on a downward spiral
Things are that bad at St Mary's that the on them to be relegated isn't the worst bet in the world - especially as they face both Manchester clubs and Chelsea in their opening seven games. Even if they don't ultimately go down, the might prove to be a good cash-out possibility.
A back to lay option in the Match Odds
It would come as no surprise to see this one go in 0-0 at the break, especially as Dominic Calvert-Lewin is an injury doubt for the hosts.
No cutting edge at Goodison
Romain Perraud is Southampton's new left back, having been signed from Brest. This could be a baptism of fire for the French U21 international, and he will be up against the pace of Andros Townsend. A yellow card - of which he received four last season - could be on the agenda.
