Venue: Goodison Park (Liverpool)
Everton vs Brighton: Everton has been a safe group at Goodison Park and has recorded five of its seven victories so far in front of the local crowd. With Brighton far from convincing on the road this quarter, the hosts are likely to point to three points for the take on Saturday.
Everton admitted his first PL defeat to Carlo Ancelotti last week after Manchester City took them out of Etihad with a narrow 2-1 score. The hosts failed to make a big impact on this final clash and finished the ninety minutes with no more than two bad shots on the target, unlike their enemies who made seven.
However, the Toffees have now stumbled once in their last six elite games, scoring eleven of eighteen possible points.
Brighton, on the other hand, failed to maintain his momentum in his previous PL confrontation with Chelsea, after the two teams scored only one goal each. Miserably, the guests only have one victory to show off their last six games.
It is also worth mentioning that winning road wins has not been Brighton’s teacup this season. So far, the visiting contingent has been successful only twice in their outings and is also one of the worst teams in the group.
To make matters worse, Brighton has lost on each of his last two visits here. Since Everton is also undefeated in his last three games at PL’s home, loyal travelers have no reason to hope.
In addition, despite his poor results along the way, it must be said that Brighton did not descend without fighting. Guests have entered their names on the game sheet for each of their last six jogging races.
In addition, they even scored three goals in the inverse game of this game. As such, do not expect any of the parties to keep a blank sheet.
