You get the sense that Frank Lampard is teetering on the brink of dismissal if he fails to arrest Everton’s recent tailspin of form, with the Toffees currently winless in five matches and hovering precariously above the drop zone. A recent 1-1 smash-and-grab against Manchester City will have just lifted the spirits of Everton — and given Lampard time — but they remain in deep trouble if they fail to build on that result over the weekend.

Indeed, Everton have won just one of their last nine games, and only three this season, suffering three successive defeats against Leicester, Bournemouth and Wolves before recently claiming a point against Pep Guardiola’s men. It’s certainly form that will leave you scrambling near the foot of the table, and if the Merseysiders can’t transform their fortunes, they are looking at another relegation battle.

Brighton meanwhile have been riding the crest of a wave this season. Graham Potter’s form in the dugout prompted Chelsea to pay a king’s ransom for his services, but successor Roberto De Zerbi has taken over with merit so far. With a reputation as a ‘Guardiola lite’, the Seagulls appear to have selected an apt Potter replacement, with the South Coast side continuing to play some scintillating football and picking up results.

A recent 4-2 reversal at the hands of table-toppers Arsenal will want to be put to bed quickly, and the ninth-placed side will be eyeing this match up as the perfect opportunity to respond.

Everton vs Brighton match stats

In these troubling times for Everton, they will need difference-makers to stand up and take responsibility. In precocious academy star Anthony Gordon they have a forward who can decided the outcome of a game on his own, but he will perhaps need to temper his hot-headedness if he is to really accelerate his progress. As things currently stand, only Ruben Neves (seven) has been shown more yellow cards than Gordon (six) in the Premier League this season.

Another of Everton’s more impressive attackers comes in the guise of the reinvented Alex Iwobi. Under Lampard’s tutelage, the former Arsenal man has transformed from misfiring winger to industrious No. 8 in the heart of Everton’s midfield. His form has been such that only Kevin De Bruyne (nine) and Bukayo Saka (six) have registered more assists than him in the Premier League this season (five).

It was an entertaining five-goal thriller the last time these sides went to war at Goodison Park. Rafael Benitez’s men went 2-0 down last January, with Alexis Mac Allister and Dan Burn doing the damage for the visitors. Anthony Gordon bagged a brace, but Mac Allister also netted twice to secure an away win for Brighton.
