Preview: Last season’s corresponding fixture won’t have lived long in the memory, with the pair playing out the first ever goalless encounter between them. Saturday’s latest renewal is set up to be an altogether much more entertaining tussle at Amex Stadium, where Brighton are aiming to go seven Premier League home games unbeaten.

Brighton – Seagulls turning Amex into fortress?

Under the highly-rated managerial guidance of Graham Potter, Brighton have already created a small piece of history by winning their first two league games of a season for the first time ever. Having left it late to win their opening encounter 2-1 away to Burnley, when coming from behind to claim all three points at Turf Moor, last week’s 2-0 victory over Watford felt a lot more straightforward.

The Seagulls are now among a small clutch of teams – five to be exact – capable of boasting a perfect record thus far and could spend Saturday afternoon, possibly even the rest of that day, top of the table should results fall favourably. That would also require them picking up maximum points, though, in a fixture which has seen them collect only one of the last nine since a 3-2 home win in October 2019.

Brighton do, however, maintain an excellent record at their South Coast residence. That Watford win extended Brighton’s unbeaten record at The Amex to six Premier League matches, a run comprising four wins and as many clean sheets for a defence with more shutouts in 2021 than all bar Chelsea and Man City. Moreover, they are yet to lose at home to Everton in the competition (W2 D2).

Everton – Encouraging early signs to Benitez reign?

In the pick of last Saturday’s afternoon kick-offs, Everton continued their strong start to Rafael Benitez’s tenure as manager with an entertaining 2-2 draw at Elland Road with Leeds United. It was a result tinged with a small dose of disappointment, though, seeing three points become only one after squandering the lead twice as well as emerging from the contest boasting the lion’s share of the xG produced.

Demarai Gray opened his account for the club with a lovely turn and finish and already looks a shrewd piece of summer business. However, it is once again Dominic Calvert-Lewin who has wasted no time getting stuck into the new season. Last season the slender frame of the 11-time capped England international netted in each of the first five matches, and is already up to two this time around.

The fact Calvert-Lewin should have added to his tally of two goals is testament to how well this Everton attack has gelled in a short space of time under Benitez. The backline remains a work in progress, however, with that now one clean sheet in five stretching into last season. They have also now conceded seven in their last two Premier League games, as many as they did in their previous twelve such fixtures.

Brighton Vs Everton Betting Advice

I covered this fixture last season and it was a drab affair that ended goalless. I would be surprised if we had to endure anything remotely similar to that considering the positive starts both sets of players have made to the campaign. Brighton boast successive victories, scoring twice in each, while Everton have four points from six and have scored five while giving up three. So this should be an infinitely better contest.


Brighton vs Everton – Key Facts:

  • The home team on the day has never won this fixture in eight Premier League meetings between Brighton and Everton. Although the latter are unbeaten in the last three (W2 D1).
  • Forwards Neal Maupay (Brighton) and Dominic calvert-Lewin (Everton) have made strong starts to the new league campaign, scoring in both matches so far.
  • Brighton are unbeaten in six Premier League home games (W4 D2). Meanwhile Everton are now winless away from home in their last three attempts (D2 L1).


The onus to take the game to their opponents rests on Brighton, though. Not only because they are hosts, which is a pretty significant factor in this fixture (the visiting team on the day has never won in any of the eight prior Premier League meetings between the clubs), but because they will be keen to make it three wins from three at a ground where they have not lost in their last six straight top-flight outings.
