Everton face off against Brighton and Hove Albion on Monday as they travel to the Amex Stadium, hoping to secure a win on the road. The Toffees come into the match on the back of a 2-2 stalemate against Leicester City, so they must perform better in order to come out on top this time around.
Sean Dyche will set his side up in a 4-5-1 formation and could be inclined to tweak his first XI for this game. Nathan Patterson could get a chance to play from the start while Seamus Coleman makes way for him after suffering from an injury.
4-5-1 Everton Predicted XI Vs Brighton
Jordan Pickford will feature in between the sticks for the Toffees after shipping in two goals in his last league outing. Michael Keane will continue to play alongside James Tarkowski at the centre of the Everton backline as they try to keep things solid at the back during the 90 minutes.
As mentioned earlier, Nathan Patterson could be back for this game and is expected to play as the right-back, while Vitaliy Mykolenko fills in on the other flank as the left-back.
Conor Coady will provide cover for the defensive positions on the bench.
Abdoulaye Doucoure, Amadou Onana and James Garner will function as the holding midfielders for Everton as they focus on making life challenging for the Brighton players at the centre of the park.
Dwight McNeil will continue as the left-sided wide player, while Alex Iwobi looks to give a good account of himself on the right flank. Both would be eager to make a difference for the Toffees in the final third.
Tom Davies and Demarai Gray will be named on the bench as they wait to prove themselves in the second half if needed.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin will lead the charge for the Merseyside club up top. The English forward needs to find a way to threaten the Seagulls’ goal if Everton are to secure a good result at the Amex Stadium this Monday night.
Neal Maupay has to be content with a spot on the bench and might come on in the latter stages if Dyche decides to opt for his services.
