Southampton welcome Everton to St Mary's Stadium in 18th place but hoping to go level on points with their visitors in 17th with a win. 

The Toffees have lost only one of their last three matches but are aiming to improve on the road having gone eight away trips without a victory.

Team news

Ralph Hasenhuttl has no new injury concerns for Southampton, who have Moussa Djenepo and Cedric Soares available.

Ryan Bertrand serves the final match of his suspension and remains sidelined for Saints.

Everton's Fabian Delph is "a big doubt" to face Southampton, says manager Marco Silva, who has also confirmed that Morgan Schneiderlin is available this weekend.

Andre Gomes is a long-term absentee after suffering a fractured ankle against Tottenham Hotspur last weekend.
