Host commentator

68 mins: Everton are defending well, with Yerry Mina making some important interventions. 

65 mins: Good play from Ferguson, whose effort is tipped over by Pickford. Mac Allister then hits the crossbar with a header. 

58 mins: Pickford makes a good save to keep out Ferguson’s header but the flag was up anyway.

50 mins: McNeil is having to work hard defensively, with Brighton pinning Everton back.

46 mins: Brighton have started the second half brightly and Pickford makes a save to thwart March. 

Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbi is making a quadruple substitution as he looks for a response from his side.

March, Enciso, Ferguson and Colwill replace Buonanotte, Welbeck, Undaz and Webster. 

If Everton win it could be hugely significant for Sean Dyche’s side as not only would they move out of the relegation zone but they would have increased belief that they can stay up. 

Brighton may have seen more of the ball, but it has been an impressive, measured performance from Everton so far and they fully deserve their lead. 

45 mins: Calvert-Lewin is booked for a foul. Garner then has an effort blocked. 

43 mins: Brighton are claiming for a penalty but play is waved on. 

41 mins: Brighton are continuing to dominate possession but Everton pose a significant threat on the counter-attack. 

It’s now 3-0 to Everton. Iwobi’s ball is overhit but the ball eventually comes to McNeill and it goes in off Brighton goalkeeper Steele. 

32 mins: Tarkowski does well to clear the danger under pressure from Welbeck. 

Everton double their lead and it’s Doucoure who scores again with a fantastic finish. The midfielder volleys the ball into the back of the net following a cross from McNeil, which stemmed from a break downfield. 

24 mins: Webster makes a good block to thwart McNeil. 

22 mins: Another yellow card, with Gueye penalised for a rash challenge on Mitoma. 

21 mins: McNeil has an effort deflected wide as Everton look for a second goal. 

20 mins: Brighton’s Lewis Dunk is booked for a foul on Calvert-Lewin, who has started very brightly. 

17 mins: Yerry Mina is booked 

16 mins: Calvert-Lewin tries his luck but his effort is off target. 

13 mins: Mykolenko sends the ball in towards Doucoure but Brighton goalkeeper Steele is alert. 

13 mins: It’s really good play from Mitoma but the Everton defence are standing firm. 

9 mins: Brighton have seen a lot of the ball since going behind, but will they be able to break Everton down? 

3 mins: Mitoma sends in a cross from the left but Welbeck can’t quite connect properly for Brighton. 

An incredible start from Everton, who take the lead in the first minute. Alex Iwobi finds Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who turns well an then crosses for Abdoulaye Doucoure, who slots the ball into the back of the net with just 34 seconds gone. 

The game gets underway. 

The national anthem is played, with Everton fans heard chanting over it. 

The teams are in the tunnel, with kick off rapidly approaching. 

With Coleman absent, Nathan Patterson is given an opportunity. He hasn’t played 90 minutes in the Premier League since Boxing Day. 

Youngster Facundo Buonanotte gets another start for Brighton. The 18-year-old has looked lively and will be determined to make an impact again. 

Everton will undoubtedly be pleased to see that their relegation rivals Leicester have suffered a 5-3 defeat against Fulham. 

When these two sides met in January Brighton ran out 4-1 winners against an Everton side managed by Frank Lampard. 

Brighton are chasing European football and can move above Tottenham into sixth place with a win today.

Everton, meanwhile, can move out of the relegation zone if they are able to take all three points. 

There are two changes for Brighton as Deniz Undav and Pascal Gross start in place of Julio Enciso and Billy Gilmour.

Meanwhile, for Everton Nathan Patterson is in for the injured Seamus Coleman, while Yerry Mina replaces Michael Keane.
