Team news

Southampton will have midfielder Stuart Armstrong available again following a positive Covid-19 test, but on-loan Theo Walcott is not eligible to face parent club Everton.

Moussa Djenepo continues his recovery from a hamstring problem which saw him miss last weekend's 3-3 draw at Chelsea.

Ralph Hasenhuttl explains why he is not a fan of proposals for a European Premier League

Summer signing Mohammed Salisu has been in team training this week as he steps up his fitness work ahead of a belated debut, while midfielder Will Smallbone (quad) is also out.

Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti is hopeful James Rodriguez will be fit for Sunday's match at Southampton - just 24 hours after admitting he expected the playmaker to miss the game.

The Colombia international sustained bruising in a challenge with Virgil Van Dijk in Saturday's Merseyside derby but resumed partial training on Friday and if he trains again on Saturday there is a chance he could play at St Mary's.

Ancelotti also confirmed new signing Ben Godfrey will make his full debut with right-backs Seamus Coleman (hamstring) and Jonjoe Kenny (ankle) unavailable.

"I think Ben played a good game (against Liverpool after coming on as a substitute for Coleman)," he added. "He played against one of the best wingers in the world in (Sadio) Mane, so it wasn't an easy game."

    FREE TO WATCH: Highlights from Everton's draw with Liverpool

    This should be a fine way to start your Sunday of live sport.

    Both teams are playing with bags of confidence in forward areas and seemingly have plenty of faith in what their respective managers are trying to achieve.

    Since beating Watford at the end of November, only Liverpool, Man City and Man Utd have won more points than the Saints while Everton have won 43 points from Carlo Ancelotti's 25 Premier League games in charge - again only Liverpool, City and United have taken more.

    So, this could be defined as a 'top-six' clash based on current form.

    Richarlison, James Rodriguez and Seamus Coleman have all been ruled out for Everton though which does slightly tip the scales in favour of Saints but once again then it's the price of the draw that makes most appeal at 12/5.

    One area Everton will find joy will be from set-pieces. No team has scored more goals than them from corners and free-kicks this season (6) and no team has created more chances from such situations (12).

    Michael Keane and Yerry Mina are big threats, especially Mina, who is one of the best in world football at attacking a high ball. The 18/1 for him to score with a header is an insult to his prowess and is firmly on my betting radar this weekend.

    JONES KNOWS PREDICTS: 1-1 (5/1 with Sky Bet)

    ALSO LOOK OUT FOR: Yerry Mina to score a header at 18/1
