Everton vs Brighton H2H: Potential MVP

Everton go in search of a third consecutive victory in all competitions and the form of Dominic Calvert-Lewin will be key towards such a victory. The forward has picked up three goals in the league this season and he has been getting more game time off late following his string of recent performances. The striker has managed a goal and an assist in his last two matches.

The forward has not scored against Brighton since August 2021 in a run spanning three matches. However, he is in a great position to be able to bounce back from a goal drought if the numbers provided by the Everton vs Brighton football stats are taken into account.

Everton: Players in focus

Dominic Calvert-Lewin in outstanding form

One of the big reasons behind the resurgence of Everton is down to the goals from Dominic Calvert-Lewin. The striker has come up with four goals in his last seven matches. He is looking for his fourth goal against the Seagulls.

French striker Abdoulaye Doucouré was able to impress with a brace in the 5-1 win. He has scored three times in his nine league matches against Brighton.

James Tarkowski providing the defensive solidarity

Everton have been able to achieve success in recent weeks largely due to solidarity provided at the back by players like James Tarkowski. The 30-year-old has been one of the top defenders for Everton this season. Apart from scoring a goal in the big win over Burnley, the defender also had a stellar game.

Brighton: Players in focus

Evan Ferguson keen on more goals against Everton

Evan Ferguson has made a strong impression in the Brighton squad after hitting five goals from just 10 matches so far this season. Only six of those games have been from the start. The 19-year-old did score in the 1-1 draw with Fulham in the last match.

One of the crucial players for Brighton this season has been Pascal Gross. The versatile midfielder has been able to hit two goals and an assist in his eight Premier League appearances. He has not had too many bad matches this season.

Kaoru Mitoma offering strength down the left

Kaoru Mitoma heads into the match with three goals and three assists from his 10 matches. He has been a consistent player for Brighton even if he has not scored in his last seven games for the team.

Final Prediction

The Everton vs Brighton stats have witnessed a string of high-scoring games between these two teams in recent years. There is plenty of potential to come across a big game thanks to Brighton being defensively mediocre in the last few games. Everton are starting to find their feet and the club are aiming for three consecutive wins. Even though eight places separate the two teams in the league table, the overall outcome is likely to be very close.
