Southampton vs Everton Premier League 2015 Predictions Who Will Win 15th Aug 2015

Southampton vs Everton Premier League 2015 Predictions Who Will Win 15th Aug 2015

Both Southampton and Everton are coming on the back of draws which they would have liked to win. Southampton, against Newcastle United and Everton against the newcomers, Watford, ended the match in 2-2 draws and lost two points.

Ronald Koeman, who was absent in the last game due to his surgery will, most probably, be present at St. Mary’s. Koeman was not happy with his team’s performance and would like them to improve, but most of all, avoid making any mistakes that they made in the last game.  HE was quoted saying as:

“I wasn’t impressed because I was unhappy about the first half. I think already in the Vitesse match we had too many mistakes, the same in the first half [at Newcastle]. All the dangers of Newcastle came from faults. The second half the reaction of the players and the physical state in the last 15 minutes was very good because we had the best chances to win the game.

Starting the season with a draw away against Newcastle isn’t a bad result but normally, if we play on our level, we have to win the game. We know the qualities of Everton,” he said. “We know how they like to play. I think it will be an attractive, open game because they like to play offensive football.

Maybe they did not have the best result last weekend [a 2-2 draw against Watford] at home to start the season, but they are strong with good individual qualities in the team and it’s a difficult one.
Everton on the other side have not been very lucky travelling to St. Mary’s in last two decades. The Evertonian manager, Roberto Martinez expressed his concern at the history but also stayed positive ahead of the crucial game. He said:

“I think the last two visits to Southampton, they’ve been really tough games for different reasons and I don’t think they’ve been just football aspects. You feel that things that could go wrong, go wrong.

Two years ago we had two own goals very early and then you look into our history and I think in 22 years we’ve only had two wins.Historically, it’s a very tough place for us and I think it becomes an extra challenge. We want to embrace that.We need to be conscious of the difficulty of the trip and make sure we change the stats that are so much against us.”
