Southampton face a trip to Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon, and have come away with little in previous meetings, having been beaten a depressing 28 out of 41 times.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in October 2003, when they played out a goalless draw in a Premiership match.

Recent respective form guides
Everton's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While Blues have scored 5, a worringly large 9 have been leaked at the other end.
Southampton's away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. Only 5 goals have been registered in this time, with 7 leaked at the wrong end.
Everton sit in a healthy 3rd in the league, and have picked up 16 points from their 8 games. Southampton are stuck down in the relegation zone of Barclays Premiership with a return of just 5 points from their 8 games thus far.
