Everton faced off against Brighton and Hove Albion at the American Express Community Stadium earlier tonight as they looked to pick all three points on the road and keep themselves firmly in the Premier League’s top-four hunt. Both sides fought tooth and nail in the first 45 minutes but struggled to be clinical in the final third as they went into the half-time interval with a goalless scoreline.

It was more of the same story in the second half as the two teams canceled each other out despite the Seagulls’ dominance on the ball. The contest ended with the Merseyside outfit only managing to earn a hard-fought 0-0 draw on the road.

Let’s take a look at how each Everton player fared during the match against the Seagulls.

GK: Robin Olsen – 7.5/10

The Toffees keeper made some important saves during the game and did enough, in the end, to secure a clean sheet away from home.

RB: Seamus Coleman – 7.5/10

Coleman was defensively solid as he made quite a few crucial interceptions for his side. He also blocked a couple of shots and even managed to create some decent chances in the opposition half.

CB: Ben Godfrey – 7/10

The English centre-back defended valiantly and performed well enough to secure a shutout tonight.

CB: Yerry Mina – 7/10

Mina read the danger quickly to earn possession back for his team. He also cleared his lines when required but had to come off in the 57th minute.

CB: Michael Keane – 7/10

Keane was not shy of putting his body on the line to keep the Seagulls frustrated throughout the 90 minutes. It was a solid display from him on the defensive end of the field.

LB: Lucas Digne – 7/10

The French full-back didn’t put a foot wrong in the game at the back but struggled to make an impact in the final third.

CM: Tom Davies – 6.5/10

He was full of energy at the centre of the park but failed to give a good account of himself in the Brighton half.

CM: Mason Holgate – 6.5/10

The English talent anchored the midfield well and managed to provide enough protection for his teammates at the back.

CM: Gylfi Sigurdsson – 7/10

The Icelandic international got stuck in with a few tackles and pulled off a couple of promising dribbles from midfield.

ST: James Rodriguez – 7/10

The Colombian attacker won the ball back a couple of times and was Carlo Ancelotti’s best hope for a goal tonight.

ST: Richarlison – 5/10

Richarlison hardly got a sniff at goal and even struggled to create any meaningful openings for others around him. Ancelotti will be disappointed with his performance tonight.

Substitutes:

RM: Alex Iwobi – 6/10

He offered very little after coming off the bench.

ST: Nathan Broadhead – N/A
