Everton have made a giant leap under Frank Lampard from his first few games in charge but have also been pegged back tremendously. In fact, the former Chelsea man has now won two and lost two following an excellent 3-0 performance against Leeds United where the likes of Donny van de Beek were in great form, but with a 3-1 loss to Newcastle United in there too, they were brought back down to earth greatly.
Lampard has got his side scoring as it's now eight goals in three games for the club, but on the other hand, they have also conceded four within this time too. The Saints, however, have been in astonishing form in 2022 with only their loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers being the only negative.
Southampton have smashed Brentford 4-1, drew with Manchester City and Manchester United, and edged past Tottenham Hotspur in the league too, while also winning both FA Cup ties.
We think Everton are hitting some form for the first time this season, however, and we predict them to win but also concede a goal or two.
