BHA vs EVE ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE FOOTBALL MATCH PREDICTION- TEAM NEWS
Everton vs Brighton & Hove Albion
It’s fair to say that Sam Allardyce was never a fan-favorite ever since Farhad Moshiri appointed him as the manager of Everton considering how he approaches the game. But Jose Mourinho is boring too, and his tactics have fetched him remarkable success wherever the he has managed.
But Allardyce can’t boast about winning big titles in his resume, and his managerial achievement so far has been saving teams from being relegated. We are not trying to belittle his success but for a club which is aiming to compete against English giants and is planning to build a new state of the art stadium which will take their capacity above Liverpool’s Anfield, his negative and long-ball tactics won’t do justice to their ambitions.
While at Brighton & Hove Albion, Chris Hughton has waved his magic wand to bring his club to a position nobody could have predicted at the start of the campaign. They are 10th in the table, and above Everton heading into this match. The Seagulls must be flying high after beating Arsenal for the first time in the Premier League last week, and considering they are still in the FA Cup, the season has been wonderful and unbelievable so far, to say the least.

Some key stats:
- Everton have lost just twice in their last 12 games against Brighton. However, the defeat came way back in 1982.
- Brighton are on their longest unbeaten streak in the top flight this season, seven heading into this match.
- Everton have tasted defeat just once in their last nine home games, 2-5 against Arsenal.
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Everton desperately need a win and Goodison may be their escape route considering the Toffees hardly lose there. But Brighton are coming into this match on the back of some outstanding results, so we are expecting a tough outing for Sam Allardyce and his players.
But we are backing Everton to pick all three points in this match because they are the home team. A 2-1 or 1-0 win looks a good bet.
