In the fourth round of the Premier League, Everton will play Brighton on October 3, trying to achieve their fourth victory in the championship – we evaluated the teams’ performances and prepared a forecast for this match.
“Everton” has issued a stunning start to the new season. Toffees won all six matches in which they took part, and became one of the contenders for getting into the top four. Before the start of the new championship, it was even difficult to imagine such a start for Carlo Ancelotti’s team . However, the club’s ambition definitely extends beyond the middle of the standings.
In the first three rounds of the Premier League, Everton beat Tottenham (1: 0), defeated West Bromwich (5: 2) and defeated Crystal Palace (2: 1). With nine points, the “toffee” are in third place.
In the League Cup, Ancelotti’s players won exceptionally big. Salford were defeated 3-0, Fleetwood 5-2 and West Ham 4-1.
In the infirmary at the club are Jenk Tosun, Jarrad Bruntwey, Jean-Philippe Gbamen and Mason Holgate. Questionable is the participation of Richarlison, who was replaced after the first half of the match with West Ham in the League Cup.
Brighton also appeared to be a more attractive team than last season. The only exception is the meeting of the Seagulls with Manchester United in the League Cup this week. Graham Potter’s wards lost to the Red Devils with a crushing score (0: 3). All other matches “Brighton” played much more successfully. First, the Seagulls lost to Chelsea (1: 3), then they defeated Newcastle (3: 0), and in the third round, only through a penalty in the last minute of the match, they lost to Manchester United (2: 3).
Even in the League Cup, which Brighton has little interest in, Potter’s wards this time defeated Portsmouth (4: 0) and beat Preston (2: 0).
On the road to the Premier League, Brighton, as a rule, played poorly. However, since February 2020, the seagulls suddenly stopped losing away at all. Potter’s players are approaching this fight with an eight-game unbeaten run in the Premier League.
Unavailable to Potter for the upcoming match Jose Izquierdo, Florin Andone, Christian Walton and the disqualified Yves Bissuma.
Everton’s winning streak has reached six official games.
Everton won four of those six matches with a crushing score.
Brighton’s away unbeaten run in the Premier League reached eight meetings.
