Everton return to action for the first time since December 16th after having numerous games postponed. Their last game saw them battle out a 1-1 draw with Chelsea thanks to a Jarrad Branthwaite goal. The Merseysiders are struggling at the moment with just five points from their last ten. At Goodison Park, the Toffees have won just one of their last five although that did came in their last fixture here.
A 90th minute Danny Welbeck goal meant Brighton picked up a useful point at Stamford Bridge last time out. It means another share of the points for a side who have drawn six of their last nine. Each of the last eight games they have played have gone under 2.5 goals. Away from the Amex, the Seagulls have drawn six of their last seven with the other one ending in defeat.
Everton vs Brighton: Match Stats
Brighton have scored a remarkable 41% of their goals in the last 15 minutes of matches including that one against Chelsea in midweek. This looks a good angle of attack and with Everton having been out of action since December 16th and carrying a number of injuries they could be tired so back the visitors to score last.
With no real outstanding goalscorer on offer a small play on Tariq Lamptey looks the play here. As mentioned previously the Brighton full-back is given lots of opportunity to get forward and even registered three shots against Chelsea. He goes off a huge price to scor at any time here.
