Conor Coady and Dwight McNeil scored in quick succession in the second half as Everton came from behind to overcome Southampton 2-1 on Saturday and hand the hosts their third straight Premier League defeat.

Everton’s second win of the season lifted them into 11th place with 10 points while Southampton are three points behind in 15th.

Everton seized control of the game after a sloppy start but Frank Lampard’s side lacked quality in front of goal as winger Demarai Gray failed to make the most of several promising openings.

Southampton made the visitors pay after the break when Joe Aribo produced a neat finish after he was afforded too much space at the edge of the box before Everton turned the game on its head in the space of a few minutes.
