What they’re saying: Everton - Brighton

Carlo Ancelotti, on Dominic Calvert-Lewin: “He is doing a fantastic job in the moment, he is really on fire and scoring a lot of goals. He’s in a very good moment. Whether he’s the best (English striker), I don’t know, but I don’t care. For me, for us, he is.”

Graham Potter, on transfer plans: “We have done some good business in the last couple of windows, to add different players to the group and sometimes you have to let them settle and let them perform, grow and take their game to the next level. Unfortunately, that is not interesting, especially when you have transfer window shows on. People don’t want to hear about this boring stuff where you help people improve.”


Odds and ends (full odds provided by our partner, PointsBet)

You might expect Everton (-135), given their strong start to the season, to be heavier favorites against Brighton (+375), but the Seagulls have been thoroughly impressive as well, even in defeat. +270 for the draw could be mighty tempting for anyone who’s watched Brighton closely.

Prediction

Everton are in for a real fight on Saturday — just ask Manchester United much they enjoyed facing Brighton last weekend — and could very well see their perfect start fall by the wayside. It’ll be a far cagier affair with chances at a premium. In the end, Everton 1-1 Brighton.
