What Trueform says for Everton vs Brighton
Everton just came up short at Manchester United last weekend but can return to winning ways when hosting Brighton, judged on our Trueform ratings.
The Toffees had previously impressed when rattling off a trio of Premier League victories, including convincing home wins over Fulham and Crystal Palace.
Albion have been boosted by a hat-trick of triumphs themselves, but generally struggle up front on the road, so 33/20 for a home win to nil is our initial Everton vs Brighton prediction.
A Look At Everton’s Betting Odds
Everton’s 2-1 loss at Old Trafford was probably a fair result overall, although Marco Silva’s side did finish strongly against United.
Gylfi Sigurdsson’s 77th-minute penalty gave them hope of a comeback, while Bernard hit the side netting after going round David de Gea, who saved well from Richarlison.
“We didn’t deserve the result, for me it’s clear,” said Silva. “When you play here and create the chances we created.
“We came here to try to do everything to try to win the match, not come here just to block them.”
The Toffees do look full of confidence at the moment and Sigurdsson is certainly on song, with five goals in his last six club games.
Last Everton line-up: Pickford, Coleman, Keane, Zouma, Digne, Andre Gomes, Gueye, Walcott, Sigurdsson, Bernard, Richarlison.
Everton defenders Phil Jagielka and Jonjoe Kenny will both miss out due to minor injuries.
A Look At Brighton and Hove Albion’s Betting Odds
Brighton did us a favour when edging out Wolves at Amex Stadium, as we landed a trio of winning bets on that match, including a 15/2 correct score pay-out.
Glenn Murray’s 100th goal for the club proved enough to earn Albion a third straight 1-0 success, having previously seen off Newcastle and West Ham.
Manager Chris Hughton is not getting carried away by the current run of results, though.
He said: “I think when you are Brighton playing in this division, you are always looking down as opposed to up and it’s really about picking up points and securing as big a gap as we can from that bottom three.”
That realistic approach could be prudent, as the Seagulls were dominated for large periods by Wolves and struck with their only shot on target.
To be fair, Albion are a resilient bunch and don’t take many serious beatings, so we’ll settle for a 2-0 home win at 7/1 to complete our Everton vs Brighton betting tips.
Last Brighton line-up: Ryan, Bruno, Duffy, Dunk, Bong, Jahanbakhsh, Stephens, Kayal, Izquierdo, March, Murray.
Brighton remain without Davy Propper and Pascal Gross as both are short of fitness following ankle injuries.
