Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Everton and Brighton face each other at Goodison Park in their first game of 2023. The Toffees quickly bounced back from a heart-breaking loss to Wolverhampton, with the team holding star-studded Man City to a 1-1 draw, and they are now on a quest to return to winning ways in the Premier League. All Townsend, Garner, and Onana are sidelined with injuries, while Michael Keane is unlikely to recover in time to face the Seagulls.
Brighton, on the other hand, aim to make amends for a 4-2 loss to Arsenal, with the team eyeing their third consecutive triumph on the road. Anyhow, Brighton are more of a team than Everton, and we predict that the visitors are going to pick up all three points from the match. The likes of Adam Webster, Jakub Moder, and Danny Welbeck should miss out with injuries for 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.
