Tip Reasoning

  • Brighton have scored exactly two goals in all three competitive games this season, winning all of them.
  • Everton have conceded in all three of their competitive matches this term.
  • Brighton have won their last three Premier League matches.

Seagulls faith pays off

After three straight wins to start the season it seems like Brighton are finally reaping what Graham Potter spent last season sowing. The Seagulls were desperately unlucky last term as they finished 16th in the table, some 20 points adrift of what the expected goals (xG) metric said they should be.

It’s a testament to the Brighton hierarchy that they stuck with Potter and that belief in the talented manager looks like it could pay off this term. They have scored two goals in all three of their competitive games, winning both Premier League games to put them fourth in the table and give them a big head start on their competitors.

Calvert-Lewin to test Brighton’s defence

This newfound attacking threat will have Rafa Benitez a bit worries as he heads to the south coast with his Everton side. They opened their campaign with a win over Southampton before picking up a solid draw at Leeds last weekend, but they have looked far from defensively sound so far. The Toffees have conceded in all three of their competitive matches and shipped two at Elland Road.

Fortunately for Benitez, he has the likes of Dominic Calvert-Lewin to call upon going forward. The Spaniard’s approach to attacking play is clearly centred around launching balls into the box for the 24-year-old. The Toffees have attempted 40 crosses in their two league games so far, with Calvert-Lewin scoring from one in gameweek one and converting a penalty at Leeds. I’m backing him to get on the scoresheet for a third game in a row.

Toffees’ defensive problems could cost them

I do fancy Brighton to edge this one, though. Everton have conceded four goals in their three games so far and with Brighton scoring two goals in each of their games this season I’m backing Brighton over 1.5 team goals on Saturday.

I’m also opting for a 2-1 correct score prediction. Brighton looked solid at the back last weekend but Everton pose a much greater attacking threat than Watford and they have scored seven goals already this season.

Brighton predicted lineup: Sanchez; Webster, Duffy, Dunk, March; Gross, Lallana, Bissouma, MacAllister; Trossard; Connolly

Everton predicted lineup: Pickford; Coleman, Holgate, Keane, Digne; Allan, Doucoure; Townsend, Gray, Richarlison; Calvert-Lewin

  • Brighton have gone six home games unbeaten in the Premier League
  • Four of Brighton’s last five home games in the Premier League have ended with under 2.5 goals
