Everton will look to make it two games without defeat when they take on Brighton at Goodison Park on Tuesday.

The Toffees earned a valuable one point last time when they drew Premier League side Manchester City at the Etihad. After going behind courtesy of a goal by Erling Haaland, a superb strike by Demarai Gray rescued a point for Frank Lampard’s men and ended a run of three consecutive defeats in the league.

However, Everton remain bereft of a win since 22 October, even though the psychological boost of a point in the game against Manchester City could prove invaluable for the team’s psyche in what is shaping up to be another grim battle against relegation. 

With 2023 set to be the last full year Everton occupy Goodison Park, they will be eager to start off on the right foot to keep their 69-year unbroken elite status alive. A 2-1 loss at home to Wolves in Everton’s last home outing was a particularly gut-wrenching experience, though, marking a second defeat across the Toffees’ previous three home games to see them score first. 

Possible Everton starting line-up

Jordan Pickford; Ben Godfrey, Conor Coady, James Tarkowski; Vitali Mykolenko, Nathan Patterson; Idrissa Gueye, Anthony Gordon, Alex Iwobi, Demarai Gray; Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

Injured: Michael Keane, James Garner, Andros Townsend 

Doubtful: Yerry Mina

Suspended: Amadou Onana


Brighton’s inconsistency continued last time as a rampant Arsenal side soundly beat them.

In an entertaining game at the Amex Stadium, the Gunners went three goals up courtesy of goals from Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard and Eddie Nketiah before Kaoru Mitoma reduced the deficit just after the hour mark.

However, Gabriel Martinelli scored to restore Arsenal’s three-goal lead before a late consolation by Evan Ferguson ensured the goal difference remained slightly respectable.

The loss to Arsenal was Brighton’s sixth loss of the season. However, they still entered 2023 in the top half of the league table, ten points ahead of the relegation zone.

For a club that was fighting for their lives by this time two seasons ago, their league placement represents a decent return. However, they will feel they can do much more given the heights they have reached recently and will fancy their chances here against an Everton side they beat 3-2 in January last year.

Possible Brighton starting line-up

Robert Sanchez; Solly March, Lewis Dunk, Joel Veltman, Pervis Estupiñán; Billy Gilmour, Moisés Caicedo; Pascal Groß, Adam Lallana, Kaoru Mitoma, Leandro Trossard.

Injured: Adam Webster, Danny Welbeck

Doubtful: None

Suspended: None
