Brighton vs Everton team news

Brighton will be without Adam Lallana and Joel Veltman, with both men expected to mark their returns later this month. Evan Ferguson and Pascal Gross could feature and will face late fitness tests. There are also doubts about Jakub Moder, Jeremy Sarmiento, Enock Mwepu and Tariq Lamptey. Everton, on the other hand, are without Seamus Coleman, who is expected to miss the remainder of the season. Andros Townsend will also be on the sidelines. Ruben Vinagre and Ben Godfrey are both doubts.


Brighton are closing down on European qualification and they can take another huge step towards continental football with a victory over Everton. The Seagulls avenged their FA Cup semi-final heartbreak against Manchester United by beating the Red Devils 1-0 in the Premier League on Thursday night. While United may boast a stronger side on paper, it was Brighton who dominated proceedings with 60% possession, 22 goal attempts and a 2.15xG. Roberto De Zerbi's men are expected to put on another dominant display when relegation-threatened Everton arrive at the Amex. The Toffees are winless in seven Premier League games and have picked up just four points during this time. To make matters worse, Everton have lost their last two meetings against Brighton - including a 4-1 hammering at Goodison Park earlier this year. With the Seagulls in tremendous form and Everton in dire straits, the home side are the ones to back. While the outright market may not provide appetising odds, there's certainly value to be found in the win-to-nil market. Brighton to take all three points and keep a clean sheet is our tip ahead of a huge Monday clash.
