Brighton v Everton Betting Preview
Venue: American Express Community Stadium
Ronald Koeman brings his faltering Everton side to the AMEX on Sunday to face Brighton & Hove Albion in a crucial Premier League match between two sides currently hovering above the relegation places.
The pressure is mounting on Koeman who this week became the favourite at 2/5 to be the next Premier League manager to be sacked.
Both teams have an identical record so far this season, winning two games, drawing one game and losing four.
Chris Hughton’s Brighton side have looked impressive at home, beating both West Brom and Newcastle.
In contrast, Everton’s away form is abysmal, with the Toffee’s last away win coming nine months ago in January in a 1-0 win against Crystal Palace.
A win for either side could lift them up into the top half of the table.
Brighton’s Dutch midfielder Davy Propper will be fit despite missing Holland’s midweek win against Sweden.
Tomer Hemed is still suspended following his charge for violent conduct, while Sam Baldock and Beram Kayal are out with long-term injuries.
Everton captain Phil Jagielka could replace the out-of-form Ashley Williams, after recovering from a hamstring problem.
Tom Davies and Nikola Vlašić impressed during the international fixtures and could be included in the starting line up.
James McCarthy, Yannick Bolasie, Seamus Coleman, Ramiro Funes Mori, Ross Barkley and Aaron Lennon remain injured.
Potential Brighton Starting XI: Ryan, Bruno, Duffy, Dunk, Bong, March, Stephens, Propper, Knockaert, Groß, Murray.
Potential Everton Starting XI: Pickford, Holgate, Keane, Jagielka, Baines, Gueye, Schneiderlin, Vlasic, Rooney, Sigurdsson, Calvert-Lewin.
