Southampton host Everton in the Premier League on Sunday.

Saints have been hit-and-miss this season so far but seem to be on an upward path of late after three in a row without defeat.

Danny Ings has continued his brilliant form of 2020 into this season - but that is matched by Dominic Calvert-Lewin for the opposition.

He has helped fire Everton to the top of the fledgling table and the Toffees remain unbeaten in the league.
