Everton v Brighton: Toffees have the attack to break defensive resistance

Everton put in an impressive display yesterday to claim a 3-1 win against Brighton at Goodison Park.

Last weekend's narrow defeat against Manchester United certainly stands as a blip for the Merseyside club.

"There will be teams who have had bigger injury lists than what we have".

"I'm really satisfied. I'm sure it was our best performance at home this season".

Hughton admitted that it was not an easy game for his side but they tried to battle on during a tough second half where Everton added two more goals to their tally. Glenn Murray scored the lone goal for the Seagulls against Wolves.

José Heriberto Izquierdo, who plays with Mina for Colombia, cancelled out Richarlison's opener but Coleman restored Everton's lead before Richarlison added his second late on.

The Senegal star even came close to goal with a rasping drive in the first-half. Davy Propper is still sidelined with the ankle injury he sustained against West Ham.

Everton manager Marco Silva has suggested that the club could make a decision on the futures of loanee duo Andre Gomes and Kurt Zouma in January. "When he plays as a striker it is not just about scoring". In the first matches he scored three times as a winger yes, but after, he had games as a winger and didn't score.

Brighton ended their long winless run on the road with their 1-0 victory at Newcastle a fortnight ago but now they have to prove they can follow it up against a better-quality side.

Coleman struck after Lewis Dunk's header had cancelled out Richarlison's fifth of the season midway through the first half, although the Brazil worldwide had the final say when he capitalised on Dunk's 77th-minute error to end Brighton's mini-resurgence.

The Brazilian forward now has six league goals for Everton after joining from Watford; and his brace at Goodison Park left his side ninth in the table after their fourth win in five matches.

Everton v Brighton will be the commentary game on Premier League Live with Sky Sports which gets underway at 2.00 on Today FM.

"We conceded poor goals, there's no doubt, particularly two of them and that is something we'll go through".
