Matchday 6 of the Premier League continued on Sunday. She saw the formation of Southampton welcome on their lawn the leader of the championship, Everton. A duel between two formations at the start of the season not very similar. Unbeaten since the start of the season, the Toffees traveled to St Mary’s Stadium with the goal of remaining so. But like Chelsea last week, the Saints were not giving up this Sunday. Carlo Ancelotti’s men got the first dangerous opportunity in the first act through Sigurdsson who saw his sublime strike being pushed back by McCarthy’s crossbar (19th).
Eight minutes passed, and Southampton surprised their world by opening the scoring thanks to their midfielder James Ward-Prowse. The same time was needed for Danny Ings’ partners to widen the gap. Shortly after half an hour of play, Che Adams saw his deflected strike surprise Pickford and thus allow his team to lead 2-0 at the break. Toffees never really entered this match were even reduced to ten to twenty minutes from the end of the meeting. Symbol of frustration, Lucas Digne warned of a red card for a violent tackle left his partners with their first defeat of the season. With this victory (2-0), Southampton continues its good streak of three consecutive matches without defeat. For its part, Everton saw its series of matches without losing come to an end but still retained the lead in the standings.
