STATS, FACTS AND MILESTONES

Theo Walcott will be aiming to net his sixth goal against former side Southampton, having struck five times in his past three appearances against the Saints.

Jordan Pickford is set to make his 61st consecutive Premier League outing for the Toffees. The Club record is held by Tim Howard, who made 210 straight Premier League appearances between September 2007 and February 2013.

If Seamus Coleman features at Southampton, it will mark his 277th appearance for the Blues in all competitions – the same total amassed by the legendary Howard Kendall. The game would also represent Coleman’s 236th league game for Everton, drawing the Irishman level with the great Bob Latchford.

ONE TO WATCH

Ings630

Danny Ings’ potential return from injury could represent a significant boost for Southampton boss Hasenhuttl. The striker was enjoying an impressive run of form prior to his spell on the sidelines, scoring three goals in four appearances. He also netted in our Premier League meeting at Goodison Park earlier this season. His strike wasn’t enough to prevent Marco Silva’s side emerging with maximum points, however, with the Blues securing a 2-1 victory back in August.
