90+4’: Fulltime! Everton win 3-1 and are back on the winning track!
89’: Yerry Mina comes on for his Everton debut! Sigurdsson goes off to a big round of applause, and the fans stay on their feet to welcome the Colombian defender.
85’: Second sub, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin now on for Walcott, who gets a nice round of applause from the Goodison faithful.
77’: 3-1!! Richarlison nips in to steal a poor back pass from Dunk, dink past Duffy, goes round the goalie and scores easily!

76’: Sigurdsson fouled on the right, Digne’s freekick straight at Matty Ryan and he grabs it.
67’: Everton’s first sub is Ademola Lookman coming on for Bernard.
61’: Corner flashes across the face of the goal, no Everton heads close unfortunately. Blues are dominating this second half. Once again Silva’s second half speech has fired the players up.
55’: Seamus was certainly fired up after scoring that one, his first since January 2017.

50’: Coleman!! The Irishman hammers home a grasscutter to put the Blues back up, Andre Gomes will get the assist after Bernard nicked the ball.
48’: OH MY GOD! Idrissa Gueye smacks the posts from distance, Bernard puts the rebound back into the box and Walcott blazes wide from like a yard out. Oof.
45+2’: 1-1 at the half, Toffees will be unhappy with the scoreline.
37’: For all the Blues’ control and chances, they really shouldn’t be drawing this game now.
33’: Setpiece goal for the equalizer. Short corner throws off the zonal marking routine, and Dunk gets away from Zouma to tie it up.
31’: Another Everton corner won by Coleman but it’s scrambled away by the Seagulls. Toffees’ pressure is causing the visitors all sorts of issues.
28’: Jahanbaksh hauls down Digne who had nipped in ahead of him in the box, and the ref waves his hands emphatically, no penalty! What?
26’: A counter attack from a corner leading to a goal? Guess what, it wasn’t against Everton this time! Sweet passing moves between Bernard, Sigurdsson and Richarlison sweeps it home for 1-0!
22’: Coleman working better with Walcott today, Blues looking threatening on both wings so far.
17’: Terrific passing sequence and run from Theo Walcott gets the Blues a corner.. Digne’s corner is met by Kurt Zouma and he glances it wide. Richarlison is back on, walking gingerly.
14’: This doesn’t look good for Richarlison, who looks to have rolled his ankle on the turf a minute or two ago. He’s off the pitch getting looked at, and it doesn’t look promising.
12’: Gylfi again! Lovely center from Lucas Digne and the Icelander prods it just wide while getting rapped in the ankles too.
10’: Lewis Dunk first in the book for tugging down Richarlison who was looking to break down the right.
6’: Oh Gylfi Sigurdsson! Miskicks an excellent cutback from Seamus Coleman on the six yard line. Golden chance fluffed.
1’: After a minute’s silence to remember those who gave their lives in the first World War, as well as the helicopter accident last weekend at Leicester City, we get underway.
Lineups: Marco Silva is a big fan of stability, and has named an unchanged lineup for the third straight game now. Let’s see how this setup works against the physical Brighton side. Meanwhile the Blues’ defence will have their hands full managing the towering Glenn Murray.
Everton’s three-game winning run came to a halt last weekend away at Manchester United despite putting in a much better performance than recent years. Marco Silva will have some interesting squad decisions to make for today with a full complement of players available to him, minus Phil Jagielka and Jonjoe Kenny.
Brighton & Hove Albion meanwhile are on a good run of their own, having won three straight games with identical 1-0 scorelines. They will look to bring that defensive solidity to Goodison Park, and this afternoon promises to be a pitched battle as Everton’s forwards look to break down their wall-like defence.
