MatchDay 8 - Sunday

Sky Sports have managed to pick arguably the two most goal-shy sides in the Premier League to host this week's Super Sunday.
Brighton's disappointing start to the season is trumped by few clubs, but Everton have to be one of them given the level of expectation surrounding the Toffees following their summer spending.
Meanwhile, Newcastle travel to Southampton after a difficult fortnight on the training ground.

Brighton vs Everton

This should be another opportunity for Ronald Koeman to get back on track. It's one thing to lament Everton's fixtures, but they need to at least be picking up points from the teams around them to get out of the relegation zone. 
Both of Brighton's wins this season have come at home and they'll be looking to exploit the Toffees' lack of confidence on the ball. With the players at their disposal, the visitors should get the better of them - although there are no guarantees on current form - and they're at 13/10 to pick up the three points. Since Romelu Lukaku's departure, the question is always where the goals are going to come from. Wayne Rooney and comeback man Oumar Niasse are both at 2/1. 

Southampton vs Newcastle

Jonjo Shelvey turned peacemaker during a recent bust-up in training between Mo Diame and Jamaal Lascelles. Together with Rafa Benitez's recent absence through illness, it's quite incredible that Newcastle haven't really struggled yet.
The Saints are at 17/20 compared to the Magpies' 10/3, which could be a little misguided given that the hosts just can't score at home. Newcastle are boosted by the fact that Shelvey will be able to play despite a fractured finger, which he'll wear in a cast. For obvious reasons given Southampton's problems up front, we're backing under 2.5 goals. Charlie Austin has only netted once this season, but he's probably the best bet for the hosts at 6/4.
