Everton vs Brighton Prediction & Betting tips
Fellow leader Everton takes on Brighton & Hove Albion in the fourth round of the Premier League. Everton has not lost a game yet and will gladly close the first block with twelve out of four. Brighton, on the other hand, has been unbeaten for nine away games and plays well.
It is still a pleasure to see Everton in action. Last season, Everton was a gray mouse in the Premier League. With the arrival of Abdoulaye Doucouré, Allan and James Rodríguez this transfer period, Everton has suddenly flourished. It’s fun to watch Everton again and there is still a lot of potential in Carlo Ancelotti’s team. Moreover, all other players also suddenly start to perform since Doucouré, Allan and Rodríguez are in the team. Dominic Calvert-Lewin, for example, takes one goal after another.
The 23-year-old Sheffield-born Calvert-Lewin has already scored eight times this season. On Wednesday evening in the Carabao Cup game with West Ham United (4-1 win for Everton), Calvert-Lewin managed to make a hat-trick for the second time this season. He already did that in the game against West Bromwich Albion (5-2 win). Everton played six times this season and managed to win all these games, including the three games it played in the Premier League. This may well be the season in which Everton finally lives up to the sky-high expectations that have been around the club for years. For Everton, the international match period is not going to be wrong in the next two weeks: The Toffees are dealing with the necessary injuries. Allan and Richarlison, for example, were injured against West Ham United and Allan has to miss the duel with Brighton. There is another question mark behind Richarlison’s name.
Brighton & Hove Albion:
At Brighton there is also enough stretch in the team. The resort club only managed to take three points in the first rounds of the Premier League, but playing football it all looks good for Graham Potter’s team. That Chelsea (1-3) and Manchester United (2-3) have won their league game at the American Express Community Stadium in recent weeks was luckier than wisdom. Manchester United was again a guest at Brighton on Wednesday evening. This time it was a game in the eighth finals of the Carabao Cup.
Just like a few days earlier against The Red Devils, Brighton also had to take three hits in the cup match. Both Brighton and Manchester United did not play with the strongest eleven in this cup match. The Manchester United substitutes turned out to be a lot stronger than a mix of basic and substitutes with which Brighton played: 0-3 loss. The defeat in the cup tournament is no reason for Potter to worry, as Brighton has reached a good level in all three league games so far. Yves Bissouma returns from a suspension at The Seagulls against Everton, likely at the expense of Adam Lallana in Brighton midfield. Potter’s basic team is rock solid, which means that, for example, a Davy Pröpper (injured this weekend) should mainly focus on raids. Last season, the 29-year-old Arnhemmer was still an undisputed basic player in South East England.
