    Everton vs Brighton & Hove Albion *** Official Match Thread ***


    7 Not allowed!



    Everton v Brighton


    PREMIER LEAGUE

    Venue: Goodison Park
    Date: Saturday 3rd November 2018
    Kick-off: 15:00 GMT
    Referee: David Coote
    Assistants: Peter Kirkup, Michael McDonough
    Fourth official: Martin Atkinson



    TEAM NEWS

    Everton boss Marco Silva will be without defenders Phil Jagielka and Jonjoe Kenny because of minor injuries.

    Midfielder James McCarthy is stepping up his return from a broken leg and played for the club's under-23 side this week.

    Brighton remain without the key duo of Pascal Gross and Davy Propper because of ankle injuries.

    Gross has not played for two months while Propper has been absent since the win over West Ham on 5 October.


    MOTD COMMENTATOR'S NOTES

    Guy Mowbray: A clash of clubs who've picked themselves up nicely in recent weeks and who should kick off in confident mood.

    Everton will expect to win at home to shrug off their setback at Manchester United last time out, when better finishing might have brought a different result.

    It also might have seen Marco Silva pip Chris Hughton for October's Manager of the Month award, but that will surely be given to the Brighton boss after a perfect month of three 1-0 wins.

    Before their current winning run I had the Seagulls down as facing a battle to stay up, but they look a far too solid and settled side for that now.


    WHAT THE MANAGERS SAY

    Everton manager Marco Silva on defender Yerry Mina's involvement: "It's something you already know, some months ago, that Zouma won't be able to play next week [v parent club Chelsea].

    "But our way to think is preparing the other players to play. Mina is ready to play if I make the decision. It is the Brighton match, nothing more.

    We do not think about Chelsea. Our ambition and focus is on tomorrow's match.

    Chris Hughton: "To get three wins on the spin is unusual. We appreciate it and the 1-0 [scorelines] show that we have a resilience in the team.

    "We've particularly been under pressure in our last couple of games, but we've shown great spirit to make sure we don't concede."
