Week two of the Premier League features plenty of intriguing matches, none more so than at Goodison Park where Everton will look to register their first win of the Marco Silva era. The visitors are Southampton, who don’t tend to enjoy their trips to Merseyside.
The Toffees look as though they could be one of the most entertaining teams in the top flight this season following their 2-2 draw at Wolves last Saturday. Silva has stocked up on attacking options, while slightly neglecting the other end of the field.
They should have no problems outscoring a Saints team who drew a blank when Burnley visited the south coast last week.
Southampton have a miserable record at Goodison, winning just one of the last 19 visits, while coach Mark Hughes has also struggled to best his old team, triumphing in just one of his last five meetings with the Toffees.
These two haven’t played out a goalless draw in the past 10 games, and while Southampton can register a first goal of the season, a maiden win looks doubtful.
Speaking of teams who aren’t involved in goalless draws, the Hammers will be looking to bounce back from their Anfield battering when they face Bournemouth at the London Stadium.
Since becoming a Premier League fixture, this match-up has always featured goals with four of the last six meetings seeing over 3.5 goals land.
West Ham conceded the joint-highest number of goals last season and made a good start to finishing top of the goals against chart with their 4-0 loss to Liverpool. At least they shouldn’t draw a blank this time out.
At the other end, Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson has already opened his account for the season and likes playing against the Hammers, netting four times in the Premier League. He’s 8/5 to score anytime.
The Reds laid down an early season-marker with their emphatic win over West Ham and should make it two-from-two on Monday night.
It took Crystal Palace eight games to register their first win last season but they hit the ground running at Fulham in their season-opener, thanks in part to Wilfried Zaha, who committed his future to the club this week.
Zaha has shown he has the quality to trouble any defence and Liverpool could find him a tricky customer. The Merseysiders have won on their last four visits to south London but always struggle to keep a clean sheet, both teams to score landing in the last seven meetings between the sides at Selhurst Park.
