Everton will look to move farther from the relegation zone but face a tricky opponent in Brighton in this weekend’s fixtures. This Premier League game will be played on Saturday at the Goodison Park with the hosts 15th with ten points and the visitors 7th with 17 points. Everton are five points above the bottom-three ahead of this round and are unlikely to be dragged down even without a loss here. That said, the recent form is impressive and should give them confidence. Everton have won five of their last seven matches in all competitions and will look to gain momentum. The worry for Everton is their home record, as they lost four of their five home league matches this season.
Brighton start this round five points behind top-five, which was looking an easy target few weeks ago. The Seagulls have failed to win any of their last four Premier League matches, drawing and losing two each. Despite such lean patch, they have been consistently among goals as nine of their ten league games have produced over 2.5 goals. That’s true with each of their four away games, which promises action even on this trip. Regardless of their scoring form it is results that matter and Brighton have lost their last two away league matches.
