Everton will be aiming to build on their historic derby win on Monday night as they host Southampton at Goodison Park.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side finally broke their 22-year Anfield hoodoo last time out and the Italian coach is set to stick with a largely unchanged team.

Gylfi Sigurdsson and Dominic Calvert-Lewin both made a key impact off the bench against the Reds, and they could start in this one, with Andre Gomes and Mason Holgate dropping out.

As for the Saints, they did end a worrying losing streak against Chelsea last weekend, but they slipped back to defeat against Leeds in midweek.

Boss Ralph Hasenhuttl needs to find a solution to their worries, and quickly, if he wants to avoid falling into the relegation zone.

His situation is no helped by a growing injury list at the club but the returns of Danny Ings and Takumi Minamino should provide his attacking options with a real boost.

And it’s a late one to wrap up this weekend fixtures with 8pm kick off on Monday night at Goodison Park.
