Brighton have won their last two home fixtures with six of their seven Premier League points coming from the AMEX.
Pascal Gross and Tomer Hemed are Brighton’s top scorers in the Premier League with two goals each. The only other player to score for the club this season is Solly March.
Ronald Koeman’s Everton find themselves in a worse goalscoring plight with just four goals to their name in this season’s Premier League.
Wayne Rooney and Oumar Niasse are the only players to have scored for Everton this season with two goals each to their name.
Former England international Rooney is going through something of a barren spell as he has not scored in any of Everton’s last five Premier League outings. He is however the only player to have scored away from home in the Premier League for Everton this season.
Everton have lost four of their last five matches and all of those defeats saw Everton fail to register a single goal.
Icelandic international Gylfi Sigurdsson has gone 479 minutes without either a Premier League goal or an assist.
The Toffees have conceded 12 goals this season - an average of 1.71 goals against per game, while Brighton have conceded nine - an average of 1.29 goals against per game.
So far. Jordan Pickford and Leighton Baines have played every minute of Everton’s Premier League campaign.
The last time Brighton beat Everton was way back in February 1982, when the Seagulls earned a 3-1 win in front of their own fans at the Goldstone Ground
