Richarlison goal plays Saints off the park
Southampton – Forster, Bednarek, Vestergaard, Salisu, Bertrand, Djenepo, Ward-Prowse, Armstrong, Redmond, Adams, Ings
Everton – Pickford, Holgate, Keane, Godfrey, Digne, Doucoure, Allan, Gomes, Sigurdsson, Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison
A goal for Everton straight off the bat. Calvert-Lewin jumps up to win the ball and when he does, slides it into Sigurdsson and he plays the through ball in for Richarlison who slips it around the keeper and slots it home.
Another goal for Everton! Digne plays in a free kick which reaches Holgate at the back post and he heads it into Keane and he puts it away!
But it gets ruled out for offside by referee John Moss. 1-0.
Everton dominating in this game.
Free kick for Everton again. A good ball played in to Keane again at the back post who heads it to Calvert Lewin and it gets cleared. But only as far as Ben Godfrey who takes on the shot and Vestergaard gets in the way and makes a great clearance.
Chance for Southampton this time. Ward-Prowse plays in the set piece which is a corner and it reaches Salisu at the front post who heads it at goal but it sails over the bar. So close for Saints there.
Great opportunity for Saints to equalise again. Armstrong runs with ball for a bit and plays it into Djenepo out on the right and the shot from him goes narrowly wide.
Once again a chance for Southampton. It comes from a corner and after lots of shots and blocks it finds Vestergaard after all of that and he just has to finish but can’t.
