High-flying Everton's trip to Southampton will be broadcast live on BT Sport this Saturday (April 26th).

Roberto Martinez's side have enjoyed a great Barclays Premier League campaign, with the Spaniard picking up the baton from David Moyes at Goodison Park and encouraging an exciting brand of attacking football.

The Toffeemen are still chasing the final UEFA Champions League spot for 2014-15, with the fifth-place side just one point behind Arsenal with three games to go.

A 2-0 win against Manchester United at the weekend - which proved to be the final straw at Old Trafford for ex-boss Moyes - has put Everton firmly back in the hunt for a top-four spot.

Three points were vital after a surprise 3-2 home defeat to Crystal Palace the previous week. It means Everton have now won seven out of their last eight Barclays Premier League matches.

Southampton - in contrast - have struggled in recent weeks, picking up just one point in their last three games. A 0-0 draw at Aston Villa at the weekend came after successive defeats against Cardiff City and Manchester City.

However, Mauricio Pochettino's side are still comfortably in the top half of the table, and will head into the summer break having enjoyed a positive campaign.

The Saints currently sit in eighth place, one behind last season's champions Manchester United.

They are too far behind the Red Devils to improve their league standing, but will be eager to keep the chasing pack - which includes Newcastle United, Stoke City and Crystal Palace - at bay.

Southampton v Everton is live on BT Sport 1 at 12:45pm on Saturday April 26th.
