Whew, that felt good! Everton won a match in which they were clearly the better side. Sure, it was against Brighton & Hove Albion, but the points all count the same. So, despite all of the struggles that the Blues have recently have, they are right back to where they were a couple of weeks ago, six points back of seventh place. It’s not great, but it wouldn’t be an awful outcome for this nightmare of a season.
