Why James Rodriguez and Tom Davies missed Everton’s meeting with Southampton

Everton vs Southampton

Monday’s only Premier League clash is set to play out very shortly.

Said clash sees Everton play host to Southampton at Goodison Park.

After all of West Ham, Chelsea and Leicester dropped points over the weekend, the Toffees knew Monday’s game was a great chance for them to gain some ground in the race for a Champions League place.

Ahead of kick-off against the Saints, Everton were sat 7th in the English top-flight, five points adrift of 4th place West Ham.

However, the Merseysiders have two games in hand on the Hammers, meaning they would of course go above them if they won both ties, including the Southampton match.

As for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men, they have been in pretty dire form of late and have failed to win any of their last five league games, losing four and drawing one.
