Brighton vs. Everton: Marco Silva to ease pressure with first back-to-back league wins this season?



The Toffees travel to the Amex on Saturday afternoon as they look to build on last weekend’s victory over West Ham, but their form on the road this season suggests a positive result may be hard to achieve.

Marco Silva has come under intense pressure after losing three of his four league away games, drawing the other at Crystal Palace on the opening day of the season.

They make the trip to Brighton on the back of a confidence-boosting 2-0 victory over the Hammers, but once again the three points were won in front of their home fans.

In fact, their last six Premier League wins have all come at Goodison Park. Despite losing last time out at Aston Villa, Brighton will fancy their chances against a nervous Everton side on Saturday.

The Seagulls can count themselves unfortunate not to have clinched a point at Villa Park last weekend. Their ten men put up a tremendous fight against the newly-promoted side, but eventually fell to a 94th-minute Matt Targett winner.

However, their attentions will have turned immediately to the visit of Everton. It’s currently 9/5 for a home win and 8/5 an away win, with a draw priced at 23/10.

Both sides are among the lowest goal scoring teams in the league this season. A goalless draw between the pair is currently available at 8/1.

However, the home side will undoubtedly still be feeling the effects of their last home victory against Spurs. They will also have taken positives from last weekend. 

Defender Adam Webster grabbed their goal at Villa Park, and he can be backed at 18/1 to find the back of the net once again.

Pascal Gross meanwhile has assisted 12 goals for the club in the Premier League, and has 22 goal involvements in the competition. He’s available at 12/1 to net the first goal of the game against Silva’s side.

Last season’s meeting between the two Brighton grab a single goal to clinch all three points. It’s 8/1 for the exact same outcome this time around.

Everton moved out of the bottom three thanks to their crucial win against Manuel Pellegrini’s team at Goodison.

Just like last weekend, Richarlison may get the nod up front for Everton. He’s 13/2 to score the game’s opening goal.

Bernard and Gylfi Sigurdsson, however, scored the goals against the Hammers. The Brazilian winger is 5/1 to score anytime, with the Iceland international available at 11/4 to find the net at any stage throughout the game.

Both teams are hovering dangerously above the relegation zone after nine games. Everton have just ten points to their name this season, one above their hosts on Saturday. A massive three points is therefore up for grabs on the south coast.
