Everton will be looking to extend their winning form in the Premier League this weekend as they play host to Brighton. The match schedules for Saturday at the Goodison Park with kickoff at 5 pm.
The Toffees hold an impressive six-win record across all competitions since the start of the new season. The side has three wins in the Premier League. Brighton will be looking to overcome two home defeats against Manchester United this weekend.
Only three clubs hold a 100% winning record in the Premier League if you include Aston Villa with two wins from two starts. Everton joins Leicester City and Liverpool as the most in-form sides in the league.
Only a goal difference leaves them behind the two. However, Leicester City was knocked out of the EFL Cup with Liverpool also facing the same fate. Everton is the only club without any blemish in their winning record across all competitions.
It is way too early to get carried away, but Carlo Ancelotti can have a smile on his face following impressive displays from his side. The last weekend 4-1 win against West was their best run in form since their 1938-39 season.
Last weekend loss to Manchester United did not sit well for the Seagulls. After a spirited fight ending in a draw, the most unexpected thing happened. A penalty converted by Fernandez was scored after the final whistle.
