Southampton 1-0 Everton: Three things we learnt

After a poor start, the Toffees were on the back foot throughout much of the game and managed just one effort on target as Southampton ran rings around Koeman’s team for much of the match, with the Dutchman resorting to long balls forward late on to little effect.
