Southampton welcome Everton to St. Mary’s on Saturday (Watch live on NBCSN, 7:45 a.m. ET and online via Live Extra) as the Saints and Toffees will put on a silky show.
Everton are fighting for the top four and will aim to keep the heat up on Arsenal be winning down on the South Coast. Southampton are pushing for their best-ever PL finish as the Saints currently sit in eighth spot with three games to go.
