Brighton and Everton play out scoreless draw

Brighton and Everton played out a scoreless draw this evening.

Neither side were able to find a winner and a goalless draw edged Brighton seven points clear of the relegation zone, while Everton’s winless run extended to five matches in all competitions.

Neal Maupay and Yves Bissouma – with a spectacular overhead kick – go close for Brighton but no breakthrough at half-time.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin was a surprise absentee in Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton side at Brighton.

The England striker was not included in the matchday squad, while midfielder Andre Gomes was sidelined with a thigh injury. Ben Godfrey and Gylfi Sigurdsson came into the side from the 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace.

Brighton manager Graham Potter named an unchanged side from his club’s defeat against Manchester United last week, with defensive duo Dan Burn and Adam Webster returning to the bench.
