Southampton v Everton Odds: Toffees can make it a losing start for Pochettino

There is live Premier League football from the St Mary's Stadium on Monday night as Southampton welcome Everton to their South Coast home. The Saints have been enjoying some rejuvenated form of late as they came from two goals down to draw at Chelsea in mid-week but the sacking of Nigel Adkins, with Maurico Pochettino coming in to replace him, has really thrown the cat among the pigeons.

Southampton go into the match as a 5/2 chance for the win but it is Everton who hold favouritism at 11/10 with Ladbrokes. The draw is available at 23/10 and that could have been worth a look before the sacking of Adkins, but it is hard to look past Everton now as the Saints’ players have been thrown into turmoil during the last few days .

There certainly hasn't been a shortage of goals in matches involving these two teams as both sides have scored in each of Everton's last 10 away games and Southampton have an in-form Rickie Lambert amongst their ranks. Lambert has scored four goals in his last five matches to take his tally to 10 league goals for the season - the most by any Englishman in the top flight - and he is 13/2 to score first or 2/1 to score anytime in the latest betting with Ladbrokes.

Lambert made an immediate impression in his last match as he came off the bench to score and begin a great comeback at Chelsea. The Saints had looked down and out at 2-0 down at Stamford Bridge but they came back to snatch a dramatic draw and boost their Premier League survival chances. That result makes the sacking of Adkins all the more bizarre and it remains to be seen what effect his departure and the arrival of Pochettino has on the side.

They had lost only one of their last six, drawing four, and they are unbeaten in their last five league games. They remain defensively suspect though as they have kept just one clean sheet in seven, with that coming against a goal-shy Aston Villa. That defensive frailty should add to a potentially entertaining Southampton v Everton match on Monday night and both teams to score is 8/13 odds on.

Eighteen of Everton's last 19 matches in all competitions have seen both teams score following their 0-0 draw at home to Swansea last weekend. David Moyes' side were unlucky not to win that match but they remain in the mix for a top-four place after losing just one of their last 11, drawing five.

They have scored at least one goal in 91% of away league matches this term and Leighton Baines has emerged as an unlikely goalscoring hero. The left back has scored two in his last three and he remains a real threat from set-pieces, with Ladbrokes offering a tempting 14/1 he scores first at St Mary's.

Baines can contribute to an important Everton win as they look to reaffirm their credentials as a top-four club. They can take full advantage of the pantomime that has engulfed St Mary’s during the last few days and how Southampton’s players react to the sacking of the popular Adkins could have an adverse effect on this game and indeed the rest of their season.
