Looking to continue on what has been nothing short of a stunning start to the new campaign, a high-flying Everton will welcome Brighton to Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon.

Booking their spot in the quarter-finals of this year’s EFL Cup thanks to a 4-1 romp against West Ham in midweek, Everton are one of just three sides who can boast a 100% Premier League record as we move into October.

On the flip side, while Everton might have managed to extend on their EFL Cup adventure earlier in the week, Brighton saw Manchester United come past them at the Amex for the second time in the space of just four days on Wednesday night.

Hit with a 1-0 defeat when they last made the trip to Goodison back in January, it should be noted that the Seagulls do hold what is a concerning record in the blue half of Merseyside.

Losing all three of their previous matchups against Everton on their travels, you might be interested to know that a similar home victory on Saturday afternoon can be found priced at 8/11 with Betfair.

Can anyone stop Calvert-Lewin?

Eventually breezing past West Ham on route to securing their spot in the quarter-finals of this year’s EFL Cup on Wednesday night, the mood around Goodison Park only remains at a red-hot high.

Now winning all three of their opening Premier League appearances so far and one of just three sides who can brag a 100% record, Carlo Ancelotti’s men managed to extend on their recent purple patch thanks to a 2-1 win away at Crystal Palace last weekend.

Unsurprisingly, once again leaving with the match ball after bagging a trio of strikes in the Blues’ 4-1 win in midweek, it is well worth keeping an eye out for a free-scoring Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

Rewarded with a first senior call-up to Gareth Southgate’s England squad on Thursday, the former Sheffield United starlet has already bagged a stunning eight strikes across all competitions this season and also bagged another hat-trick against West Brom last month.

You might be interested to know, the 23-year-old can be found priced at 11/10 with William Hill to extend on his stellar early-season purple patch on Saturday afternoon.

A tale of two halves for Brighton

Although Brighton might have been rightfully heartbroken to have left the Amex on the wrong end of that controversial 3-2 defeat against Manchester United last weekend, the Seagulls were really blown away by the former champions on EFL Cup duties in midweek.

Watching the Champions League outfit once again put a trio of strikes past them as their heavily-altered squad landed a 3-0 romp on Wednesday night, Head Coach Graham Potter will have a headache over his side’s issues at the back.

While they might have managed to impress many with their eye-catching 3-0 win away at St. James’ Park a fortnight ago, the former Swansea boss has seen his side ship over 2.5 goals three of his side’s first four matchups against top-flight opposition.

Also opening the 2020/2021 campaign with a 3-1 defeat against Chelsea on home soil, Brighton could be in for a tricky test when they head up North this weekend.

You might be interested to know, last year’s relegation scrappers can be found priced at 5/2 with Paddy Power to once again ship at least a trio of strikes at Goodison on Saturday afternoon.
