The Toffees are on a three-game winning streak to kick off their Premier League fixtures in style this autumn.

A controlled win over Crystal Palace last time out has Everton in the top three in the table, and another victory here will lift spirits even higher.

Not that Brighton will be pushovers on Saturday. The south coast outfit shocked Newcastle 3-0 in their last away league outing and were seconds away from a draw with Manchester United last time out.

Both sides head into this clash having competed in the EFL Cup fourth round in midweek.

Everton v Brighton team news

Everton: Ancelotti has four men ruled out for the game, with Jarrad Branthwaite, Mason Holgate, Cenk Tosun and Jean-Philippe Gbamin missing.

Goalkeeper Jonas Lossl is included in the Denmark squad for the upcoming international break but may again struggle to even make the bench here. Expect the usual forward three to start.

Brighton: Yves Bissouma is suspended for this clash, while Christian Walton is a doubt after picking up an injury at the end of August.

Manager Graham Potter will likely start with Aaron Connolly up front again, with Neal Maupay and Leandro Trossard either side of the striker. Adam Lallana should provide the central creativity from a four-man midfield.

Our prediction: Everton v Brighton

Brighton have deserved more than the three points so far picked up in the Premier League, but may have to wait until after the international break to add to their tally.

Everton have put in three controlled and exciting displays in the top flight and their attacking arsenal of James Rodriguez, Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin is proving a real handful for opposition defenders.

It’s hard to see how Brighton can keep the Toffees at bay over 90 minutes and the hosts should edge this match.

Our prediction: Everton 2-1 Brighton
