Everton face Southampton in a showdown between two clubs facing turbulence ahead of the fresh Premier League season.
The Toffees faithful haven’t taken well to former Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez taking charge of their club this summer following the departure of Carlo Ancelotti.
A slew of underwhelming signings have also dented ambitions ahead of the new campaign, though spirits may arguably be lower among their opponents’ fans.
Southampton sold top scorer and main man Danny Ings in a shock summer deal to Aston Villa, leaving their plans in tatters ahead of the opening week of the campaign.
The Saints have also lost man mountain Jannik Vestergaard to Leicester with little in the way of major acquisitions coming in to replace them.

Our prediction: Everton v Southampton
Both teams are unsettled, both sets of fans are underwhelmed, both clubs are unsettled, underwhelming and undercooked ahead of 2021/22.
The home side are likely to be tough to beat under Benitez but won’t offer too much in the way of attacking prowess, while the visitors would probably take a point to settle into the season.
It’s probably a good job this one isn’t on the TV.
