Everton vs Brighton
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 3rd November 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Goodison Park (Liverpool).
Everton will be hosting Brighton at their Goodison Park on Match Day 11 of this season.
It is evidently true that Everton has been having ups and downs and all sorts of performance woes this season. Even so, they have managed to settle within the top ten bracket at the 9th place with 15 points. They are just 1 point ahead of Brighton and a win here should see them widen the gap.
Their winning streak was halted last weekend by the Red Devils after a 3 match unbeaten run. Their forward duo of Iceland international Sigurdsson and Richarlison are in great form and will be the men to watch. This does not rule out the fact that Theo Walcott also poses an equal threat to the defense line of any opponent. Everton has a clean bill of health ahead of Saturday’s outing to Brighton.
The Seagulls have not removed the leg on the gas pedal in the last three EPL matches. They have successfully beaten West Ham, Newcastle United and Wolverhampton. Apparently, all these 3 wins have been courtesy of a single goal.
As they hit the road to Goodison Park, Brighton will be eyeing their fourth consecutive clean sheet in the English top flight. Perhaps, they may also strive to scoop another 3 points and add another win to their winning streak. However, keeping a clean sheet may be difficult as getting another straight win in this game. They will not be able to stop Everton attackers from scoring on Saturday. Davy Propper and Pascal are the only injury concerns ahead of Saturday’s outing.
Everton vs Brighton: Head-to-Head
- These two sides have only met twice. Everton won the last encounter played in March this year with 2 goals to nil.
- The other match ended in a 1-1 draw.
- This implies that the last 2 meetings have ended with under 2.5 goals.
Everton vs Brighton: Prediction
Everton striking power is unstoppable and this may continue in this matchup. They have only failed to score in only 1 match in their last 5 games. On the other hand, Brighton has also failed to score only once in their last 5 EPL games. This is a clear indication that both teams are enjoying a good scoring ability and will not stop in this matchup. We are backing both teams to score prediction while Everton remains the favorite for the 3-way selection.
