Everton will go into this Premier League clash high on confidence having beaten rivals Liverpool last weekend.
The Toffees can move level on points with the Reds with a win tonight and still have a game in hand.
Southampton, meanwhile, are still without a win since January 4 in the league and lost at Leeds last time out.
The Saints did beat Everton 2-0 in the reverse of this fixture in October with James Ward-Prowse and Che Adams scoring.

Everton v Southampton: Team news
Everton duo Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Allan are fit to start against Southampton.
The pair were substitutes for the Merseyside derby win at Anfield and although Calvert-Lewin came on, Allan has yet to make an appearance since returning from two months out with a hamstring problem.
Yerry Mina faces another two weeks out with an ankle injury while long-term absentee Jean-Philippe Gbamin, who has not played since August 2019, is still working his way back to full fitness in training.
Southampton midfielder Oriol Romeu is set to miss the rest of the season because of a fractured ankle, which will need surgery.
On-loan Liverpool forward Takumi Minamino also suffered a hamstring injury in Tuesday night’s defeat at Leeds, so will miss the trip back to Merseyside.
Theo Walcott, Kyle Walker-Peters and Ibrahima Diallo all continue their recovery from respective thigh problems, while Michael Obafemi and William Smallbone are long-term absentees.
Everton v Southampton: What has been said?
Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti: “If I have to say what happened until now I have to say I have to be worried because we are going to play against the teams at the bottom where we had more problems.
“We have to be able to solve these kind of problems. I am convinced it is a really competitive league, a really difficult league.
“If we look at the results in Europe then the English teams did fantastic: the three teams in the Champions League won – three away games: Liverpool won, Chelsea won, Man City won.
“(Manchester) United did really well (away) against Real Sociedad, Tottenham won easy, Arsenal won (all in the Europa League) – that means this league is a really high level.
“You have to consider also that the teams at the bottom are doing well also. To play against Fulham, to play against Burnley, is not easy at all and to play against Southampton is not easy.”
