Brighton are set to be without just six first-team players for their Premier League clash against Everton on Saturday 4 November, according to injury expert Ben Dinnery.

Only two of the players on the list are expected to be fit for Saturday’s match at Goodison Park, according to the injury specialist who posted the information on his website.

The Everton match is predicted to be missed by Julio Enciso, Jakub Moder, Danny Welbeck, and Solly March; however, full-backs Pervis Estupinan and Tariq Lamptey are reportedly “ruled out” by Dinnery but may play.

May repeat?

The last time Everton faced off against Brighton, Sean Dyche’s men pulled off an absolute tactical masterstroke on their way to Premier League safety in May.

Dwight McNeil and Abdoulaye Doucoure both hit doubles and a Jason Steele own-goal secured a rampant 5-1 win at the American Express Stadium, one of the surprise results of the campaign following the Seagulls’ stark progression under Roberto de Zerbi.

Can Dyche’s men use that game as inspiration again for Saturday? The way Brighton are defending right now, conceding 19 goals in their ten Premier League games so far, despite their decent position in the table could provide Everton plenty of encouragement.

Sunday’s win over West Ham United at the London Stadium certainly showed the abilities the Toffees have when stifling talented attacks and Brighton certainly possesses one of the most exciting in the division.

But that won’t stop Dyche conjuring up another surprise win and Everton will have the fans fully behind them, but they’ve only tasted one home win so far this campaign and that must be improved on Saturday.
