Armstrong fires over the crossbar

OVER THE CROSSBAR 🤯
Another corner and another opportunity just inches away for Hasenhüttl's men. Everton initially do enough to clear the corner but only as far as Romeu who curls the ball back into the packed penalty area. Bednarek, who has already scored three times this season, gets a head to it but it flies just over the crossbar.
Saints continue to apply pressure
Another positive move from Saints coming from the counter as Ward-Prowse releases Armstrong, cornered by the Everton defence he fails to get a shot away and opts to pass to Elyounoussi in front of goal but it's another comfortable save for Pickford.

Delightful from Walker-Peters
Just as Saints looked to lose posession, a fantastic passage of play from Walker-Peters as he battled to stay on his feet saw them with yet another challenge on Pickford's goal. He can't find the back of the net and Saints' appeal for handball are ignored.
Elyounoussi denied by Pickford

Saints looking for chances on the counter
Lampard's men are clearly full of confidence after their 3-0 victory over Leeds United, with Hasenhüttl's side forced to monopolise on opportunities on the counter to find an opening in the game. Stuart Armstrong is the next to lead the charge from the back with a strong passage of passing play ensuing before Elyounoussi fails to control the ball and it goes out for an Everton throw-in.
