Everton vs Southampton team news

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s Southampton look to reverse their recent fortunes after a poor run of form.

Tonight they take on in-form Everton who, under the guidance of Carlo Ancelotti, are hunting after a spot in the Champions League.

In terms of team news, Saints continue to be hampered by a series of injuries.

Last week, it was confirmed that Oriol Romeu is injured for the rest of the season with a fractured ankle sustained against Leeds United.

Theo Walcott would be unavailable to play against his parent club if he was fit, but he’s still injured - as is fellow loan signing from Merseyside Takumi Minamino, Kyle Walker-Peters, Ibrahima Diallo, Will Smallbone and Michael Obafemi.

Everton have some positive news when it comes to injury.

Two key players in Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Allan are both in contention to start after starting last weekend’s derby game against Liverpool as substitutues.

Yerry Mina and Jean-Philippe Gbamin are the only Everton players expected to miss out.
