Everton – Brighton : Preview & Prediction
Everton, 12th in the Premier League last year, did not have the season they hoped for. But at the start of the season, the Ancelotti effect is starting to take effect, and the new recruits are already shining, like James Rodriguez. Everton have a very complete and interesting squad, could annoy more than one team in the Premier League this season, and will probably be the team to watch! So far, Everton have won their 6 games played this season: 3-0 against Salford City and 2-5 at Fleetwood Town in the League Cup, 0-1 at Tottenham, 5-2 against West Brom, 1-2 at Crystal Palace in PL and finally, 4-1 against West Ham in the 8th of the Cup!
Brighton, 15th last year, wants to do better this season and, after losing on the first day against Chelsea (1-3), had a very big game to win at Newcastle (3-0). Brighton also spent the first two rounds of the League Cup (4-0 against Portsmouth and 0-2 at Preston North End), before losing to Manchester United in PL 2-3 in an unimaginable scenario, then another defeat on Wednesday evening against the same opponent 0-3 in 8th in the League Cup.
Everton finished 10th (out of 20) at home in the Premier League last year with 8 wins, 7 draws and 4 losses.
