Betting prediction: Brighton 1-1 Everton

After particular results at the weekend, Brighton and boss Graham Potter will like their chances of successfully fighting off relegation come the end of the season. A brief winning-run was halted last weekend against Manchester United, but their recent form still trumps an Everton outfit under Carlo Ancelotti that is foundering in the channel.

Zero wins in three for the Toffees sees them on a poor run and, despite their matches in hand over their closes rivals in the table, are on the outside looking in as the battle for European football next season rages on. Two even outfits on the balance of play could easily share the spoils on the south coast on Monday night.

Brighton vs Everton: Recommended bets

Correct Score: 1-1 Draw

Both Brighton and Everton can hardly claim prominent attacking results with any regularity. Brighton did manage to put a combined five goals past Newcastle United and Southampton, but given that both the Magpies and Saints have two of the bottom-five defensive records in the Premier League, hitting them for multiple goals is hardly an achievement especially when Brighton’s attacking data suggests they are a better than their season dictates. As for Everton, they have not managed more than a goal in any of their last five outings, so a low-scoring draw here could certainly be a good possibility.

To Score Anytime: James Rodríguez

James Rodríguez marked his 6-week absence from first-team commitments with Everton’s only goal in their recent 1-1 draw against Crystal Palace. The Colombian international was an unexpected addition over the summer and hit the ground running at his new club, but in a season hampered by injury the full effect of his ability has not been felt throughout. Back fit and playing again, his attacking instincts could help alleviate the considerable pressure on Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s shoulders regarding goals. Rodríguez is joint-second in the team for goals (6) with Richarlison, and his ability on set-pieces gives him another avenue where he can directly affect the scoreline on Monday.

Brighton vs Everton: Match preview

There is an old adage that says the table does not lie. Where a club rests at any point during a season – particularly at its conclusion – is thought to be an accurate reflection of what the capabilities are of both the playing staff and its manager. But that idea is changing rapidly, and we have data to thank for it.  Graham Potters men are a case study in how the eye test can certainly be deceitful in modern football. Data may not tell the whole story, but it certainly does paint a large piece of the canvas.

Ninth in expected goals, third in expected goals allowed, and fifth in expected points. I have mentioned this about Brighton before and it remains just as surprising as the last time. Graham Potter should genuinely be guiding his side in with a chance at European football next season, and one could maybe argue that if he was at a club that was even slightly larger – and with greater resources – he could be having a season akin to David Moyes at West Ham United.

The expected data does not match reality and at the end of the day, and reality is all that matters at the Amex, but what the data does point to is Brighton’s hopeful ability to dodge a bullet and not become fully embroiled in a relegation scrap. Though goals remain their biggest struggle without a true headline centre-forward despite the best efforts of Neal Maupay, the Seagulls -5 goal difference shows that they are not too far off mid-table at the very least. No club in the bottom half apart from Aston Villa has a better goal difference, and when that is factored in on top of the supportive data, Graham Potter’s suggestion that Brighton has progressed is hardly wide of the mark.

Against an Everton outfit struggling in recent weeks, there is no better time to put that theory to the test as the Seagulls look to jump to 15th and open a 9-point gap between them and 18th-placed Fulham.

Consistency in front of goal vital in closing weeks for Everton

Top Everton centre-forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin has come under fire recently from boss Carlo Ancelotti in the wake of continued shortcomings in front of goal. The Sheffield United youth product has hardly been at the races by comparison to the opening weeks of the campaign, a period that saw him smash nine goals in six appearances across all competitions. Now, with just one goal in his last seven Premier League outings, his rough day at the office in the Toffees’ 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace at Goodison Park played a large part in missing out on an additional two points that would have them level with Tottenham in seventh.

It was always going to be difficult for Everton to mount a sustainable challenge for the European places over the course of an entire season. Though they have done well to remain within striking distance of a top-six place – and their two matches with hand could serve them well in the end – too much has come down to three men to help push the Toffees for the duration of the season. Like Aston Villa, who are half the side without Jack Grealish, Everton truly struggles without Calvert-Lewin firing, but also the influences of both Richarlison and James Rodríguez. The front-three has bagged 26 of the club’s 41 Premier League goals this term, while other attacking options have truly failed to deliver.

In that light, it is vital that Calvert-Lewin rediscover the red-hot form he began the season with if Everton has any considerable chance at a top-six finish come the end of term. Two years and ~£200million investment into the Ancelotti reign and failure to qualify for Europe in both seasons under the Italian football icon would signal a considerable setback for a club that has ambitions to crack into the Premier League elite. During a season where Ancelotti has suffered his second-worst winning percentage in his illustrious managerial career, results against sides like Brighton need to be viewed as fixtures on the calendar that are near-guaranteed results, else the club may struggle to kick on down the line.

Brighton team news vs Everton

Graham Potter remains bereft of the services of Tariq Lamptey and Solly March for Monday evenings clash with Everton.

Aaron Connolly and Florin Andone are on the road to recovery but are not close to making their full returns for the Seagulls, while Adam Webster could be back as soon as Monday, but probably will be held out until Brighton’s date with Chelsea.

Everton team news vs Brighton

Carlo Ancelotti is running out of options in the centre of the park for Everton, with Abdoulaye Doucouré, André Gomes, and Fabian Delph all unavailable for selection. Allan is also a doubt as well, though the Italian headmaster will be hopeful of his return pending further assessment.

Bernard and Jordan Pickford is also guaranteed to be unfit for duty, though Tom Davies, Ben Godfrey, and Jean-Philippe Gbamin are all available; Gbamin albeit from the bench, while Godfrey should be called upon in the matchday XI.
