Brighton vs Everton betting tips: Premier League preview & predictions

Brighton vs Everton 101 Great Goals prediction: Brighton 1-1 Everton

Brighton will be looking to bounce back from their defeat to Aston Villa when they host struggling Everton this weekend.

The Seagulls have looked impressive under new boss Graham Potter but have been unable to capitalise on their dominance in the majority of their games.

That has left them down in 16th in the Premier League table.

Just one place above them, Everton will be looking to build on their win over West Ham last weekend.

The Toffees had lost four consecutive games before that 2-0 win, losing to Bournemouth, Sheffield United, Manchester City and Burnley.

After that dominant victory over West Ham, Everton will be looking to build on that and start to move up the table.

Brighton vs Everton: Who will win?

Going into this game off the back of a defeat to Aston Villa in their last game, Brighton are actually the outsiders in their own back yard.

The Seagulls are priced at 19/12 to win the game at the Amex.

Meanwhile, having comprehensively beaten West Ham in their last fixture, Everton are priced as the favourites.

The Toffees can be found at 6/4.

Considering Everton’s recent away form, you may want to give that selection a miss.

Everton have not won an away fixture in the Premier League so far this season.

A draw, which we predict, can be found priced at 23/10.

Going one further, a 1-1 draw is priced at 11/2 and could be decent value for money.

At the top of the goalscorer market, it is actually Brighton man Glenn Murray who is the favourite to score first.

The striker is priced at 5/1 to net the first goal, followed by Neal Maupay, priced at 11/2.

Everton’s star forward Richarlison is priced at 13/2 to score first.

Meanwhile, following his solo goal against West Ham last weekend, Bernard is priced at an attractive 14/1 to score first.

For our pick, we’d probably go with Murray or Maupay.

Everton could be without Yerry Mina this weekend, meaning either could pray on young Mason Holgate who is the only replacement available.

Brighton vs Everton match preview

It’s been a very up and down start to life for Graham Potter and Brighton so far this season.

The Seagulls have played some tremendous football at times, which was showcased in their 3-0 demolition of Tottenham.

However, despite their dominance in a fair few games this season, Brighton aren’t exactly where they want to be.

Potter’s side have only won two games so far this season, with the victory over Spurs one of them.

The other came against Watford on the opening weekend of the season, in a 3-0 win.

Brighton’s 0-0 draw with Newcastle is probably the best example of their struggles to turn dominance into results.

The Seagulls had a whopping 72% possession, making 718 passes to Newcastle’s 280.

Despite their incredible dominance in the game, Newcastle actually managed more shots on target and came away with a point.

If Brighton are to move up the table, they need to capitalise on their dominance during their games.

Can Silva get the Toffees moving in the right direction?

What a win that was for Everton at the weekend.

In possibly Marco Silva’s most important game of the season, the Toffees comfortably dominated and secured a 2-0 win over West Ham.

The Toffees went into the game off the back of four consecutive defeats and there was talk among the Everton fans that Silva should go.

However, their win over West Ham was so dominant that at least some optimism has returned to Goodison Park.

Everton had 19 shots in total, with 10 of those on target.

Safe to say, it could have been a lot more than 2-0 if the Toffees had their shooting boots on.

Now, that performance has put down a marker.

The Everton players must now reach that marker each and every game, and if they do, Marco Silva could actually start to move them in the right direction.

Brighton team news vs Everton

Brighton fans will be hoping Leandro Trossard will be fit to play this weekend.

The Belgian was an unused sub in their clash with Aston Villa.

Aaron Mooy picked up a red card in that game and will serve a suspension this weekend.

Meanwhile, Bernardo is sidelined for the hosts.

Everton team news vs Brighton

The big news for Everton this week will be in relation to Yerry Mina.

The Colombian central defender has impressed this season and put in a brilliant performance against West Ham last week.

However, he picked up an injury in training this week and could be a doubt for the game. On Thursday, Marco Silva confirmed Mina as a doubt and admitted he had not trained in the lead-up to the match.

Jean-Philippe Gbamin will remain sidelined for Everton after a setback in his recovery recently, while Morgan Schneiderlin could return to the squad after a small injury kept him out against West Ham.
