Your daily dose of Everton news and rumours
Tomorrow, Everton face Brighton & Hove Albion at Goodison Park. The Blues and Seagulls don’t encounter each other too often, as 11 of their total 16 meetings occurred between 1913 and 1982, so we’ll try our best to break this one down. In their last five meetings dating back to 2017, Everton have two wins, one draw, and two losses. Their most recent meeting in October resulted in a 3-2 loss. Can the Blues get back on track after a disappointing defeat to Liverpool? COYB!

“Ronald Koeman was coach, Romelu Lukaku left for Manchester United that summer and I got the feeling from Everton that there was a good chance I could really become something there. They even offered me a contract whilst I was on trial,” says Bayern Munich youngster Joshua Zirkzee. [Echo]
“Having a manager like Carlo is brilliant for me,” he added. “It is important to learn how he thinks and what he wants. He’s done it as a player and manager. We all want to do those things and win trophies. If he can bring his winning mentality, it’s going to be significant for all of us,” says Tom Davies. [EFC]
