What Trueform says for Brighton vs Everton
Everton ended their five-match winless run in spectacular fashion at Burnley on Boxing Day but Brighton are expected to provide stiffer opposition.
The Seagulls have only lost to Chelsea and Tottenham on home turf this term and are coming off a solid draw with Arsenal at Amex Stadium.
We feel this will be another even contest and 23/10 for the scores to finish level is our opening Brighton vs Everton prediction.
A Look At Brighton and Hove Albion’s Betting Odds
Brighton showed plenty of spirit when recovering from an early Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang strike to share the spoils with the Gunners on Wednesday.
A mistake by Arsenal right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner allowed Jurgen Locadia to equalise in the 35th minute, with his first goal since February.
Chris Hughton insisted Locadia will not be leaving the club next month, despite reports linking the striker with a move back to Holland.
The manager said: “It’s been difficult for him, but he is somebody who trains well every day and when the chance came along, he was ready. He will certainly be feeling better now than he was a month ago.
“At this moment, I am pleased for him, because he has given us options. You need all your players and that type of competition.”
Looking at the Brighton vs Everton odds, it was also 1-1 when these teams met at Amex Stadium last season and 23/4 for a repeat of that scoreline will do nicely.
Last Brighton line-up: Ryan, Duffy, Balogun, Montoya, Bernardo, Stephens, Gross, March, Propper, Locadia, Murray.
A Look At Everton’s Betting Odds
Everton moved up to eighth in the table, five places and the same number of points ahead of Brighton, after trouncing Burnley 5-1 at Turf Moor.
The Toffees responded superbly to Sunday’s 6-2 loss to Tottenham, with Yerry Mina heading in the opener, Lucas Digne hitting a fine double, Gylfi Sigurdsson scoring from the spot and Richarlison wrapping things up.
Marco Silva said: “It was a fantastic answer from our players. We prepared well, we started well, because it is not easy to play here.
“When you have a bad result, the best thing is to play quickly and the players have proved that. We have got a good result, an important win.
“The last result was tough but we have no doubts about our personality or quality. We had a bad afternoon but have proved not just our quality but our commitment and attitude as well.”
Former Barcelona wing-back Digne is definitely a threat from set-piece situations and 5/1 for him to score at anytime again here is added to our Brighton vs Everton betting tips.
Last Everton line-up: Pickford, Keane, Zouma, Digne, Mina, Coleman, Gomes, Sigurdsson, Bernard, Walcott, Calvert-Lewin.
BRIGHTON 1-1 Arsenal – Jurgen Locadia
Burnley 1-5 EVERTON – Yerry Mina, Lucas Digne (2), Gylfi Sigurdsson (pen), Richarlison
Head-to-head: Everton 3-1 Brighton, Everton 2-0 Brighton, Brighton 1-1 Everton
