PREVIEW: EVERTON V ALBION

1 November 2018

Linton Rogers
Albion travel to Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon.

Brighton & Hove Albion head to Goodison Park in excellent confidence after recording three consecutive victories and clean sheets in the Premier League, but Everton will be looking to seal their third home win on the bounce, kick-off 3pm.

The Toffees sit just one point and two places above Chris Hughton’s team ahead of this weekend’s game, but the Merseyside club tasted defeat on their most recent Premier League outing, losing 2-1 to Manchester United.

Albion were the only side to keep an unbeaten record throughout October, winning all three of their matches 1-0 to match the hat-trick of top-flight victories they last secured back in 1981.

The three clean sheets recorded over recent weeks have provided Hughton’s side with a solid platform to secure maximum points and the Seagulls will go in search of their first-ever victory at Goodison Park.

TEAM NEWS:

Hughton confirmed Pascal Gross remains sidelined and will miss Saturday's match, but is hopeful of having the German back after the international break and hasn't fully ruled him out of returning before then.

Davy Propper will also miss Saturday's game and Hughton is also hopeful of seeing the Dutchman return in time for Leicester City's visit towards the end of the month.

James McCarthy is the only injury doubt for the Toffees - the midfielder stepped up his return to fitness with game time for the club's under-23 side.




FORM:

The Seagulls took nine points from nine throughout October, starting with a 1-0 victory over West Ham United at the Amex Stadium, where Glenn Murray’s clinical finish took him to 99 goals for the club.

Murray went after his record-breaking 100th goal at Newcastle United, but the striker suffered concussion after an aerial collision and Hughton’s side played out the remainder of the game without the frontman.

But it didn’t prevent the Seagulls from ending their wait for a Premier League away victory, as Jose Izquierdo’s half-volley struck Beram Kayal before finding the back of the net to win 1-0.

Murray returned for the visit of Wolves last Saturday, and he produced the game-winning moment to become the club’s post-war record goalscorer and seal a hat-trick of league wins for his team.

The Toffees won two of their three Premier League matches in October, one of which came at Leicester City as Marco Silva’s side won 2-1 thanks to goals from Gylfi Sigurdsson and Richarlison.

Their home game against Crystal Palace looked to be heading towards a goalless draw, but late strikes from Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Cenk Tosun sealed a 2-0 win after Jordan Pickford saved a penalty.

October ended in defeat for Everton when they made the relatively short trip to Old Trafford — Sigurdsson scored from the penalty spot after goals from Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial, but Silva’s side couldn’t find a second goal to level.

LAST TIME WE MET:

Albion’s seven-game unbeaten run came to an end at Goodison Park when Hughton’s side visited for the first time in the Premier League back in March.

The Seagulls had just beaten Arsenal 2-1 at the Amex Stadium, but Tosun’s first-half effort and an own goal from Gaetan Bong gave the Toffees a reasonably comfortable 2-0 win.

It could have been worse for Albion, after Anthony Knockaert received a red card and Everton were awarded a penalty, but Maty Ryan produced a fine save to deny Wayne Rooney from 12 yards.

LAST TIME OUT: ALBION

ALBION 1
Murray 48

WOLVES 0

Albion line-up: Ryan; Bruno, Duffy, Dunk, Bong; Jahanbakhsh, Stephens, Kayal, Izquierdo (Knockaert 81); March (Bissouma 71); Murray.
 
Subs not used: Steele (GK), Balogun, Bernardo, Locadia, Andone.




LAST TIME OUT: EVERTON

MANCHESTER UNITED 2
Pogba 27
Martial 49

EVERTON 1
Sigurdsson 77 (pen)

Everton line-up: Pickford; Coleman, Keane, Zouma, Digne; Gomes, Gueye (Calvert-Lewin 78); Walcott (Tosun 78), Sigurdsson, Bernard (Lookman 62); Richarlison.

Subs not used: Stekelenburg (GK), Baines, Mina, Davies.




PLAYER TO WATCH: Gylfi Sigurdsson

The midfielder has been a mainstay in Everton’s team since signing from Swansea City for a then club-record fee - in excess of £40 million.

Sigurdsson pulls the strings in the centre of midfield for the Toffees, and the Icelandic has found the back of the net six times already, making him the club’s top goalscorer this season.

The 29-year-old has fired five goals in his previous six Premier League matches, including a brace against Fulham in Everton’s 3-0 victory at Goodison Park.

His 2017/18 total of six goals from 33 matches has already been matched after just 11 games this season, which certainly makes him one of the Premier League’s most in-form midfielders.

Alireza Jahanbakhsh challenges Richarlison at Goodison Park
  • Albion are beaten 3-1 at Everton
  • Lewis Dunk levels after Richarlison’s opener
  • Seamus Coleman and Richarlison put Everton back in front
  • The Seagulls travel to Cardiff City next Saturday

Brighton & Hove Albion were unable to continue their Premier League winning streak at Goodison Park this afternoon, as Everton performed well to frustrate the Seagulls and record a 3-1 victory.

Lewis Dunk headed home to cancel out Richarlison’s opener for the hosts, but the Brazilian’s second of the game and a clinical finish from Seamus Coleman put the Toffees back in front to secure maximum points.

Chris Hughton named an unchanged team for their visit to Merseyside, with Solly March providing support for Glenn Murray in the attacking third, while Albion’s defence looked for their fourth clean sheet in a row.

The hosts started the game on the front foot and created two clear-cut opportunities for Gylfi Sigurdsson inside the opening 15 minutes, but the midfielder sliced his first chance wide before prodding into the side-netting soon after.

Theo Walcott then used his well-known pace to race down the side of Dunk and make it to the byline, but the Albion defender surged back to block the winger’s low-driven cross.

Albion won their first corner of the game after 26 minutes, but from Alireza Jahanbakhsh’s cleared delivery to the back post, the Toffees broke at rapid speed and Richardson fired past Maty Ryan to finish the move and break the deadlock.

Seven minutes later and Hughton’s side were given another chance to cause trouble from a Jahanbakhsh corner, and Albion did exactly that as the Iranian’s short corner to March was then whipped towards the back post.

With numerous bodies tussling to meet the ball inside the goalmouth, there was Dunk to rise highest and connect with a powerful downward header to beat Jordan Pickford from close range and level the game.

Beram Kayal slipped a pass through for Jose Izquierdo to chase shortly before the break, but after the Colombian turned his marker inside out, his left-footed attempt was blocked and the half-time whistle was blown.

The teams returned for the second half and Albion were put under constant pressure as Everton came agonisingly close to retaking the lead through Idrissa Gana Gueye and Walcott.

Gueye’s low-driven effort cannoned back off the upright to find Bernard out wide, and when the Brazilian picked out Walcott at the far post, his team-mate fired over the crossbar from close range.

Albion’s struggle to retain possession continued throughout the second period, as they had trouble establishing any rhythm on the ball, while the hosts applied pressure and looked to further their advantage.

Hughton introduced Anthony Knockaert and Yves Bissouma, as the Seagulls went in search of a reaction, but the difficulty of their task was increased in the 77th minute when Richarlison bagged his brace.

Dunk’s square pass was intercepted by the Brazilian, who then rounded both Duffy and Ryan to simply finish into an unguarded goal to make it 3-1 and put the game further out of reach for Hughton’s men.

Pickford tipped over from Jahanbakhsh in the closing stages, but the Toffees comfortably held on to their healthy lead and Albion's search for a victory at Goodison Park continued.

ALBION: Ryan; Bruno, Duffy, Dunk, Bong; Jahanbakhsh, Stephens, Kayal (Andone 78), Izquierdo (Knockaert 63); March (Bissouma 70); Murray.

Subs not used: Steele (GK), Bernardo, Balogun, Locadia.
