Brighton & Hove Albion began the fourth month of the season in 11th place in the Premier League following the three consecutive victories the side enjoyed in October.

November began with a trip to face Everton at Goodison Park, and it was Marco Silva’s men who took an early lead on Merseyside courtesy of Richarlison – the Brazilian finished off a swift counter-attack by firing past Maty Ryan to put the Toffees ahead.

Lewis Dunk would soon head the Seagulls back on level terms though, as the central defender rose highest inside the area to head home Solly March’s cross, which meant the side went in level at the break.

But Everton restored their advantage five minutes into the second period, as Seamus Coleman drove into the bottom corner from distance, before Richarlison grabbed his second of the afternoon 13 minutes from time to seal the win for the home side.

Albion were on the road again seven days later, this time making the trip to south Wales to face Cardiff City in their second contest of the month.

The game began fantastically for the away side, as Dunk headed in his second goal in as many matches after just six minutes of the televised lunchtime contest to put the Seagulls ahead and mark his second England call-up in style. 

Callum Paterson soon had the Bluebirds on level terms though, heading in at the back post down the other end, before Dale Stephens was shown a straight red card for a challenge on Greg Cunningham just before half-time.

After the restart the Seagulls were relatively untroubled despite being a man down, but Sol Bamba fired a late goal in cruel fashion to condemn the side to a defeat which was difficult to swallow.

The Seagulls hosted the Foxes on the south coast a fortnight later, and nearly took an early lead as Beram Kayal saw a close-range effort parried away by Kasper Schmeichel.

But the hosts would take the lead soon after, as Glenn Murray arrived to head home Anthony Knockaert’s cross from the right-hand side to put Albion ahead – James Maddison was also shown two yellow cards in quick succession before the interval, which meant the visitors would have to play the remainder of the contest with ten men.

But just as it looked like the home side had sealed all three points, Jamie Vardy came off the bench to convert a penalty 11 minutes from time after Kayal was penalised for a foul inside the area and the Seagulls finished November in 12th position.
