Great interception

Everton 1-1 Southampton

Southampton are still looking the likeliest to nab a late winner. And they thought they had it a few moments ago, only to be denied by a sensational interception by Ramiro Funes Mori.

Shane Long is through on the Everton goal and, instead of shooting pulls the ball back, but Funes Mori slides in to intercept before Jay Rodriguez can tap in. Everton are under all sorts of pressure.

Kevin Kilbane

"Funes Mori attacks the ball well, he is a threat in the opposition penalty area."

Talk about a goal against the run of play. An Everton corner finds its way to Ramiro Funes Mori and his initial header is blocked by Shane Long, whose attempted clearance sees him inadvertently play the ball back to the Everton defender. Funes Mori makes not mistake with his second chance as his left foot shot is deflected in off Ryan Bertrand.

Who's Callum Connolly?

Everton 0-0 Southampton

Rather helpfully, Everton put a tweet out earlier about debutant Callum Connolly, who has come on for Seamus Coleman.

HALF-TIME

Southampton end the half with a succession of corners and the last sees Virgil van Dijk with a shot at goal from 15 yards but he stabs his effort over. Everton's goal was leading a charmed life before the referee blew for half-time.

There's been no goals so far but you get the feeling one is just round the corner. It'll probably stay goalless now - commentator's curse and all that.

Kevin Mirallas is furious. He dispossesses Victor Wanyama and is about to burst through on the Southampton goal but gets a tug from Jose Fonte as he goes to ground. Fonte's misdemeanour was on referee Craig Pawson's blind side so play goes on. 

Everton 0-0 Southampton

Kevin Kilbane

"It has been very, very, poor. With the calibre of players Everton have got, it is unacceptable. They should be close to the top four."

Big week for Martinez

Everton v Southampton

The chorus of disapproval against Roberto Martinez has been getting louder recently - as the banner from last week's draw at Watford shows - and he faces big week in his Everton managerial career as he tries to get his doubters back on side.

Lawro's predictions

Everton v Southampton (15:00 BST)

Mark Lawrenson

BBC football expert

"Southampton easily dispatched Newcastle last week but you cannot really use that as a yardstick because this will be a lot tougher for them.

"Everton have won only once at home in the Premier League since 2 November and have lost their past three league matches at Goodison Park."
