Southampton have certainly been one thing this season—inconsistent.

A dominant 3-1 win away at Bournemouth was followed by a disappointing 4-1 home loss to former Saints boss Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday evening, before another home loss to West Brom on New Year's Eve. Those aforementioned defeats were two of four league losses at home in 2016.

Claude Puel and his Saints side will be hoping to get over their mini Christmas slump by winning another game over former boss Ronald Koeman's Everton on Monday.

This hasn't been made any easier for Southampton by the in-demand Virgil van Dijk, who will be serving a suspension following his sending off against West Brom. Saints captain Jose Fonte is likely to replace van Dijk at the back alongside Maya Yoshida.

Southampton are also likely to welcome back Nathan Redmond and Ryan Bertrand to the side after serving a suspension and being rested, respectively.

Meanwhile, Koeman has no fresh injury or suspension worries following Everton's back-and-forth away draw at Hull City. However, they will be missing former Southampton loan signing Maarten Stekelenberg, with the goalkeeper still suffering from a dead leg.


Stats Zone:

Southampton's only win in 17 Premier League visits to Goodison Park came in November 1997 (D4, L12).

Saints could do the top-flight double against Everton for only the third time, after 1973-74 and 1997-98.

Everton suffered their first home defeat in 12 league matches in their most recent Goodison Park fixture, against Liverpool. They could suffer back-to-back home defeats for the first time since March.

No Premier League side this season has scored more headed goals than Everton's nine.

Southampton could lose three successive Premier League matches for the first time since a four-match losing streak in December 2014.

However, they are vying to win consecutive away matches for the first time this season.

Saints have exactly the same record at the halfway point of the Premier League season as they did last season under Ronald Koeman (W6, D6, L7).
