Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Everton and Brighton take on each other at Goodison Park in what is expected to be a close Premier League game. The Toffees were not in action in midweek as their clash with Newcastle was cancelled, meaning that tired legs should not prove to be a big problem for the home side. Fit-again attacker Dominic Calvert-Lewin is pushing for a start, but fellow striker Richarlison misses out with injury. Yerry Mina and Andros Townsend are sidelined with injuries as well.
The Seagulls, on the other hand, showed character in a 1-1 draw with Chelsea, with the team impressing in the second half. Danny Welbeck should be recalled to the starting XI after scoring a late equalizer at Stamford Bridge, while centre-back Duffy is a major doubt. Anyhow, Brighton have been in a much better form of late than Everton, and we are tempted to put our money on the visiting side.
Highlighted Player (Seamus Coleman):
Quite possibly the most talented footballer to have donned the Republic of Ireland jersey in the second decade of the 21st century, Seamus Coleman is an attacking full-back, who has been one of Everton’s best performers for quite some time.
Plucked from lowly Sligo Rovers in 2009, the highly rated footballer took to Premier League like duck to water and went on to become one of the best right-sided defenders in the league. Coleman has developed a knack for scoring amazing goals, and he already has more than a dozen strikes in the Premier League.
The talented footballer is still waiting for his first goal in the Republic of Ireland national team, but it is only a matter of time before he ends his international drought, even though that is not exactly his main job. The general consensus is that Coleman should have left Everton for a top club earlier in order to realise his full potential, but there is still time for the Irish footballer to grace the biggest stage.
Highlighted Team (Brighton):
Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club were formed in 1901. The Seagulls welcome their opponents at Falmer Stadium and the capacity of Brighton’s home ground is 30,750. The stadium was built in 2008 and it was opened in 2011. The venue is known for commercial purposes as American Express Community Stadium.
Brighton & Hove Albion compete in the Premier League and they play in blue and white stripes. The colour of Brighton’s away kit is green. The club made it to the FA Cup final in 1983, but English giants Manchester United proved to be a big catch for the Red Devils.
Brighton’s main rivals are Crystal Palace and the Seagulls have recorded 35 wins over the Eagles. Frank Stapleton, Martin Chivers, Joe Corrigan, Bobby Zamora, Mark Lawrenson, Bobby Smith, John Crumplin and Frank Worthington are notable footballers who played for Brighton in the past. The Albion is Preston’s yet another nickname.
