Everton, who recorded a series of poor results in the last few weeks, must immediately improve, not only fix their performance, but also fix their position in the Premier League standings. Moreover, ahead of the turn of the year, Marco Silva’s direction squad will be faced with a very busy schedule. Before 2018 ended, precisely in the 20th matchdays this weekend, the Toffees will face Brighton and Hove Albion, where their match will take place on the upcoming Saturday night, December 29, 2018 at The American Express Community Stadium, Brighton.
As the host, Brighton will be playing their 19th matchdays early in the morning against Arsenal at their home. Of course, in the match, Chris Hughton’s landing team would be eyeing a victory considering they had swallowed the previous 3 consecutive defeats, which made the club worse in 15th place in the standings. After the match, Brighton will still play another non-match home match against Everton. Of course, faced with Everton it’s just as difficult as against Arsenal, but the advantage is that they will play at home.
Moreover, the Toffees were in a negative period because they had never packed a win in their last five matches in all competitions and had lost three of them. On paper, Everton is better, but in the statistics of their last five parties, Brighton is superior to the Marseyside team.
