Tip Reasoning

  • Brighton have conceded in each of their last six away games.
  • Both teams to score has landed in Everton’s last four games at Goodison Park.
  • Brighton have 10 draws in their last 14 games in all competitions.
  • Albion’s last three away games have finished 1-1.

Everton return to action against Albion

Everton will play their first game since claiming a 1-1 draw at Chelsea on December 16 when Brighton visit Goodison Park on Sunday.

The Seagulls also held Chelsea to a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge in their last outing earlier this week, but both sides have been struggling for wins despite those encouraging results respectively against title-chasing Chelsea.

Everton have won just one of their last 11 games in the Premier League and Brighton have just one victory in their last 14 in all competitions. With Everton returning to action after an enforced layoff, going for a result looks a tough ask here but there are signs we may see goals at both ends and both teams to score looks a good starting point.

Clean sheets an issue for both sides

Brighton were solid at the back earlier in the season but errors have started to creep in and they have just two clean sheets in their last 10 league fixtures, and Albion have conceded in each of their last six away games.

Everton have only managed two clean sheets in their last 13 league games and as such I’m expecting both teams to score in this match-up.

Everton have at least been scoring and both teams to score has landed in each of their last four games, while three of Brighton’s last five have seen goals at both ends and they have just one shut-out in that period.

Spoils shared at Goodison

The hosts did win the reverse fixture 2-0 earlier in the season, but their form has nosedived since and a repeat result looks unlikely in this latest meeting. Brighton may not be winning games but they’re not losing many either and six of their nine trips in the league so far this season have ended all square, while they have drawn 10 of their last 14 games in all competitions.

Taking that into account, there is a good chance both teams could end up with a point on Sunday. A 1-1 result is the pick in the correct score market as Everton have scored exactly one goal in three of their last four games, and Brighton’s last three away matches have all ended 1-1.

Everton predicted lineup: Pickford, Coleman, Branthwaite, Keane, Godfrey, Allan, Doucoure, Gomes, Gray, Calvert-Lewin, Gordon

Brighton predicted lineup: Sanchez; Lamptey, Veltman, Burn, Cucurella, Bissouma, Moder, Mac Allister, Lallana, March, Maupay
