Kevin Davies – Everton vs. SOUTHAMPTON (November 1997)

Kevin Davies went on to have a very successful career with Bolton Wanderers and even managed to win one England cap from Fabio Capello in October 2010. Davies though first made his name at Southampton. In his debut season with the Saints, he scored this wonderful solo effort away at Goodison Park against Everton in November 1997.

Picking the ball up on the left-hand side of the pitch, Davies cut inside, evaded John Oster’s feeble attempt to foul him before beating another two Everton defenders, then produced a fitting finish to a wonderful solo run past Everton veteran goalkeeper Neville Southall. Southampton ended up 2-0 winners.

Less than a year later, Blackburn Rovers paid £7.5 million for Davies’ services. He would have a miserable time at Ewood Park but it was goals like this that tempted Rovers to pay such a fee for him.
