Everton and Brighton and Hove Albion’s 2022 missions start with an evening Premier League experience on Sunday at Goodison Park.
The Toffees have not played since holding Chelsea to a 1-1 draw on December 16, and amusingly, the Seagulls played out a similar outcome with Thomas Tuchel’s side last break.

Everton Vs Brighton & Hove Albion Tips & Prediction
To say that 2021 was a mishmash for Everton would be a genuine misrepresentation of reality, however the Toffees eventually finished the year on an overall high note with a point at Stamford Bridge.
With conflicts against Burnley and Newcastle United both being canceled as outfits all over the nation work around exhausted crews, Everton head into 2022 with much work to be done to save Rafael Benitez’s bacon.
Presently fifteenth in the table with 19 points to their name from a potential 51, Benitez’s brilliant beginning to life at Goodison Park has not had the ideal impact over the colder time of year, as Everton sit only eight points above Burnley having played a game more.
The Toffees figured out how to win only one of their last five home Premier League games in 2021, and history isn’t their ally either, as they have endured rout in every one of their last four opening EPL matches of the schedule year.
A count of 10 goals conceded in their latest four experiences at Goodison Park doesn’t look good for the hosts either, and the strain is weighing intensely on Benitez’s shoulders to turn his side’s fortunes around in the New Year.
Arsenal fanatics of 2016 are as of now very much aware of Danny Welbeck’s fondness for last-minute objectives, and Chelsea ended up being the Englishman’s next casualties as Brighton played a draw.
Romelu Lukaku’s shooting race to the close to post and resulting header put the Blues 1-0 to the great before the break, however 10 minutes subsequent to being presented, Danny Welbeck met Marc Cucurella’s cross to reestablish equality for the Seagulls.
The successes section is as yet looking especially exposed for Brighton, yet four points from a potential six was an optimal method for finishing an upside down 2021, and they sit tenth in the table heading into the New Year thus.
An impasse at Stamford Bridge addressed a third successive 1-1 draw out and about for Graham Potter’s men whose latest success out and about returned September and unintentionally, each of the four of their initial Premier League conflicts in a schedule year have finished with the crown jewels shared.
Demarai Gray and Dominic Calvert-Lewin pushed Everton to a 2-0 win over Brighton at the Amex back in August, and each of the four of the Seagulls’ Premier League outings to Goodison Park have seen them left away with nothing.
Goodison Park has not been benevolent to Brighton in late memory, despite the fact that Everton’s fourteen day long break might neutralize them assuming corrosion becomes an integral factor.
The normal return of Calvert-Lewin will help Everton’s possibilities of separating an obstinate Seagulls backline, however, and we believe in the Toffees’ capacity to scratch the odd goals and start 2022 as they intend to continue.
