Everton vs Brighton: Premier League preview

Everton host Brighton & Hove Albion at Goodison Park on Saturday.

Brighton begin the match one place above their opponents courtesy of their excellent recent form. Goal difference is all that separates the two sides.

Chris Hughton’s side have drawn two and won five of their last seven in all competitions.

The Seagulls put on a near-perfect display at home to Arsenal last weekend, beating the Gunners 2-1.

Lewis Dunk and Glenn Murray both got themselves on the scoresheet. The veteran striker has now scored 11 Premier League goals this season.

Everton suffered a 2-1 defeat at Burnley last weekend. The Toffees took the lead through Cenk Tosun before conceding two in the second half and finishing the match with 10 players.

Everton have lost their last five out of five on the road, but their home form is drastically better. Sam Allardyce’s side have won six and drawn two of their last 10 matches at Goodison.

The two sides drew 1-1 at the Amex in October’s reverse fixture. Anthony Knockaert looked to have bagged three points for Brighton before Wayne Rooney converted a penalty in second-half stoppage time.
