PremierLeague: Everton vs Southampton

After a few years of investing effort with the ambition of reaching out to the Premier League giants, now Everton seems to be gradually exhausted and they are no longer too keen to race on the market last summer. With the preparation not really thoughtful for the new season, the upcoming welcome to Southampton will be very difficult for teachers and coaches Rafa Benitez.

Before the start of the new season, Everton had a disastrous friendly match when they lost to Man Utd with a score of 0-4. Before that, the Toffees struggled to draw with Millonarios and beat Pumas with a minimum score. Looking over to see that Everton have a relatively bad preparation for the new season. In recent years, the Goodison Park team has continuously recruited stars with the ambition to join the giants of the Premier League. However, their performance on the pitch did not meet the goals of the BHL and the wishes of the fans. After the departure of coach Ancelotti moved to Real Madrid, now Rafa Benitez will be the replacement name to continue the Toffees' ambition.

In fact, the appointment of coach Rafa Benitez is not fully supported by Everton fans, because in the past this strategist used to lead Liverpool, a team that did not share the same sky with the Toffees. Of course, BHL Everton has a reason to make this decision, when Rafa Benitez's experience in the Premier League is superfluous. In the last transfer window, Everton brought in 3 rookies, Andros Townsend, Asmir Begovic and Demarai Gray. However, in the opposite direction, Theo Walcott, Bernard and Joshua King also packed up and left. The worry for Everton before this match is quite big, because the two main stars in attack, James Rodrigues and Dominic Calvert Lewin, have not scored more than 1 goal in their last 11 matches.

Before the start of the new season, Southampton also received an unwarranted defeat against Athletic Bilbao. However, in 4 friendlies this summer, Southampton only lost 1 and won 3, in general this team has been relatively well prepared. The biggest worry for Southampton is that they have lost top star Danny Ings. A rather confusing decision of the BLD this team when selling Danny Ings to Aston Villa for £ 25 million.

Last season Southampton did not play well when only finishing in 15th place after bringing back 43 points. They played well in the early stages but became the team that won the least points in the tournament in the last 25 rounds. The fact that the defense played so badly with 68 times to concede a goal, a record only better than the relegated West Brom team was the main reason for the above poor results. The Saints head to this match with only 2 clean sheets in the last 14 matches in all competitions. They also have a poor away record last season with losing the last 10/11 matches in the English Premier League.
