The final whistle goes and Everton have run out deserved 3-1 winners after inflicting the damage on Southampton during a 15-minute blitz in the first half. The Toffees remain very much among the leading pack in the Premier League, while Southampton appear to be facing a tough season after going down to a fifth defeat in six league games.
Leon Osman acknowledges the applause from the crowd as David Moyes shores things up further by bringing on Sylvain Distin.
Nigel Adkins gives it one last throw of the dice as Adam Lallana goes off to be replaced by Richard Chaplow for the closing stages.
Nigel Adkins responds with a double change of his own, bringing on Emmanuel Mayuka and Ben Reeves for Nathaniel Clyne and Jay Rodriguez.
Kevin Mirallas has made a tremendous impact since his summer arrival and gets a deserved round of applause as he makes way for another new boy, Bryan Oviedo.
Nikica Jelavic will not be getting his hands on the match ball this afternoon as he is replaced by Victor Anichebe for the final quarter of an hour.
The Everton fans stand to applaud as the half-time whistle goes, with David Moyes' men finding their form in wonderful style after a slow 15 minutes to take full control. It is 3-1 at the interval and if the Toffees keep going like that they could score a hatful, while Nigel Adkins will be mightily relieved to get the chance to regroup.
GOAL! Everton turn the game in their favour as Nikica Jelavic provides the cutting edge to a flowing move by racing through the centre to latch on to Kevin Mirallas' excellent pass and slot his finish coolly past Paulo Gazzaniga.
GOAL! Southampton fail to clear a Kevin Mirallas cross and the ball breaks kindly for Leon Osman to smash a shot into the roof of the net from 10 yards and draw Everton level.
GOAL! That is far too easy for Southampton and a first Premier League goal for Gaston Ramirez, with the club-record signing heading home unmarked from close range following abysmal defending at a corner. Goalkeeper Tim Howard was in no man's land as Adam Lallana delivered the set-piece.
Joe Murphy says: 'Can only see one result today here in Sth Iran. That's a big win for Everton.'
'Oliver and Joel, the Everton supporters from London, think that following their loss to Leeds United in the Capital One Cup, Everton and Moyes will be looking to get a win against Southampton. 4-0 to the Blues. Goals from Mirallas (2), Fellaini and Anichebe.' Always good to get a feedback that's a joint effort.
Gabriel has been in touch, saying: 'Southampton will be buoyed by their much needed win over Villa last week so I'd expect them to make it difficult for Everton and with a player of Rickie Lambert's doggedness leading the line and flair players around him they look like a team capable of scoring goals. Everton have always been a hardworking team though and I can't see that changing in this game. Think they will have the edge in what could be a good match. 3-2 to the Toffees.'
'This is Stewart MacLaren from a warm & windy Torrevieja in Spain saying that Everton will beat Southampton 3-1 at Goodison Park this afternoon with good goals from Leighton Baines, Fellaini & Nikica Jelavic.'
