Everton v Brighton: Toffees have the attack to break defensive resistance

Ireland and Everton captain Seamus Coleman was in action today at Goodison Park as his side overcame Brighton 3-1.

He slid towards the Gwladys Street cupping his ears and - as he says - went "a little bit mad" but he has every right to celebrate scoring his first goal back, and he has every right to remind those who claimed he was "finished" that there is life in the old dog yet. When I came back here in January and played against Leicester the reception I got from Everton fans is something which will stay with me for a long time.

"I was out injured for a year", said Coleman, who broke his leg on global duty with Republic of Ireland in March 2017.

"It was a frustrating time to be out and this season I've had a few niggles".

"It was a tough game for us. I thought we controlled most of the game".

How crucial late errors are costing Tottenham Hotspur dear
Wolves piled on the pressure but were unable to find a way past Lloris as Spurs held on to climb back into the top four. At 3-0, you don't have to press. "We play football to the end, sometimes we get rewarded and sometimes we don't".

Richarlison looks a good fit as a central forward, with fellow Brazilian Bernard performing well on the left and Sigurdsson in a more advanced position, Everton are posing a consistent attacking threat. "We did well, we deserved the three points", Silva said. Glenn Murray scored the lone goal for the Seagulls against Wolves.

Hughton told The Argus: "Probably what will hit home to me is in our last four games we've got three wins and one loss". Our players performed really well from the first minute. We have had three really good results and then a bad result. "The only way you can keep going is keep battling, keep doing the right things, keep working hard in training, keep listening to the manager, and your luck will turn around and that happened to me". When we planned and worked on those moments through the week, we knew they are strong in those situations.

Brighton are the visitors to Goodison Park.

"It gave them a bit more impetuous and it became a quite hard second half but we battled on, we went for it with the two up front so it wasn't one that we were prepared to accept but it was a hard afternoon for us".

"We were away from home and up against a team that I think will push for the top six", he said.
