Brighton vs Everton Prediction
The Seagulls failed to secure even a point on the road last week after Aston Villa did just enough to post a 2-1 victory. Despite registering five attempts on target, the hosts were just not clinical enough in their efforts and subsequently returned empty-handed.
However, Brighton have been showing a lot more promise on home soil this season and have been at the losing end just once in their last four games here. It is also worth mentioning that their last matchup at home saw them humiliate Tottenham with a whopping 3-0 scorecard.
Everton have hardly hit the ground running in their respective campaign. The Toffees pulled off what was only their third win of the season in their last clash at home against West Ham. To top it off, the visitors are sporting the second-worst away record in the cluster at the moment.
Marco Silva’s men have not been faring well in their previous visits to this venue either and are yet to register a win against the home team. Be that as it may, the hosts have been forced to share the spoils in half of their last four games here.
Given that Everton have also salvaged a point in one of their previous two visits to Amex Stadium, a double chance is by far the safest punt in this one.
Furthermore, with just one goal on the road, it is quite evident that racking up goals is just not Everton’s cup of tea. Brighton have hardly shown any conviction in finding the back of the net, and have just five goals to boast of at home.
Their last two head to head encounters have also witnessed under 2.5 goals on the final scorecards. As such, a low scoring clash is looming large this weekend.
