Everton v Albion


Goodison Park
Date: Saturday 4th November 2023
Kick-off: 15:00 GMT
Referee: Tim Robinson
Assistants: Adrian Holmes, Scott Ledger

Everton have no fresh injury concerns and Ashley Young, who scored in the midweek Carabao Cup win over Burnley, is available after serving a one-match league ban.

Seamus Coleman is set to step up his comeback from a knee injury by playing for the under-21 side on Saturday.

Tariq Lamptey is fit to return for Brighton but Pervis Estupinan is still sidelined with a thigh problem.

Long-term absentees include Jakub Moder, Solly March and Danny Welbeck.



  • The four most recent Premier League meetings were all won by the away team, including 4-1 for Brighton at Goodison Park in January and 5-1 for Everton at Amex Stadium in May.
  • Brighton can earn a third successive victory at Goodison Park; the only team they've beaten in three successive top-flight away games is Wolves.
  • Everton have won three of their past five league fixtures, as many as they had in their previous 20 attempts.
  • Sean Dyche's side have earned back-to-back 3-0 victories at Goodison Park and won five of their past seven outings in all competitions.
  • They are vying to earn consecutive Premier League wins for the first time in 13 months.
  • Everton have kept a clean sheet in each of their past seven home league victories since beating Crystal Palace 3-2 in May 2022.
  • The Toffees have equalled their club record of 10 Premier League home defeats in a calendar year.
  • Brighton are winless in four league games (D2, L2). It's their longest run without a victory since Roberto De Zerbi's first five matches in charge in October last year.
  • Their only victory in seven competitive fixtures came at home to Ajax in the Europa League on 26 October.
  • Albion are on a club record run of scoring in 18 successive away league matches.
  • The Seagulls have both scored and conceded in 14 Premier League games in a row. The competition record is Everton's run of 16, ending in January 2013.
  • Evan Ferguson is the first teenager to score at least 10 Premier League goals in a calendar year since Wayne Rooney in 2005.

Away day Saturday. How lovely to hear the alarm clattering at 04:30, then the sound of the wind and rain at the window. Ugh. But here we go…

First train already cancelled. (Broken down)

Currently on Gatwick Express to Victoria.

The plan is to arrive in Liverpool at 10:04. We’ll see how that goes.

On a plane during the match, can't decide if paying for the wifi to try and keep tracks in a stupid idea or not

Sean Dyche really doesn’t rate Brighton does he? He has some sort of hex over us so I guess that is fair enough. He always talks about us like we have upset him somehow.

Let’s hope that we overcome the Dyche curse when we could not overcome the Fulham one. It feels unlikely to me. It seems that whenever we play Everton we face a fit and firing DCL. He is the one striker I think owns dunk.

Leaving Stirling in a hour, off to the Dam on Wednesday, should be a good week...
