7:53pm:FULL-TIME: Everton dominated the game with Brighton finishing stronger. Everton played some fantastic football and Bernard is my man of the match. He was lethal to Brighton and he seemed to cut Brighton’s defence open. Brighton seemed to wake up in the second half and only started to force saves out of Pickford in the last 30 minutes after Alzate came on. Great goal from Richarlison and a goal disallowed because Calvert-Lewin handled the ball on the line to push it in. Good performance from Everton overall, however it was slightly shaky towards the end.
