Both Southampton and Everton have scored three goals from the penalty spot in the Premier League this season.

Southampton are the second least efficient team in front of goal in the Premier League this season, as they require an average of 18 shots before they manage to score.

Southampton have scored only nine goals in the Premier League this term - their fewest after 12 games of a top-flight campaign since 1998-99 (also nine), when they finished 17th and avoided relegation by just five points.

Southampton have only scored four goals from open play this season in the Premier League - the joint lowest amount alongside Crystal Palace.

Southampton have the highest average possession of all the teams outside the top six of the Premier League – 55.8%.

Everton have failed to win their last 14 away Premier League matches and have conceded at least two goals in their last four Premier League matches.

Everton have conceded 24 goals this season in the Premier League - an average of two goals against per game.

Everton have conceded inside the first minute in 10 Premier League games, more than any other side in the division’s history.

Everton have not kept a clean sheet since the opening weekend win over Stoke at Goodison Park.

After scoring against Crystal Palace last weekend, Leighton Baines scored in successive Premier League matches for the first time in his career.

Caretaker boss David Unsworth is the only defender to score more Premier League penalties (22) than Leighton Baines (20).

Oumar Niasse continues as Everton’s top goalscorer in the Premier League with five goals to his name this season - he finds the net an average of once every 76 minutes.

November 2016 would not prove to be a welcome return to St Mary’s for the now former Southampton and Everton boss Ronald Koeman. He took the Merseyside outfit to the South Coast and had to witness Charlie Austin’s first minute goal, one that gave the Saints all three points.
