    There's a delay while former Everton defender Shane Duffy receives treatment for what looks like a neck injury.

    Meanwhile, Everton make their third and final change and it's a first competitive appearance in a Toffees shirt for former Barcelona defender Yerry Mina.

    Heading the other way to a deserved standing ovation is Gylfi Sigurdsson.

    Jordan Pickford has not had too much to do but the Everton keeper is forced to back-peddle and beat a curling effort by Alireza Jahanbakhsh over his bar.

    There are 38,000 inside Goodison. Most are heading home happy. This has been a dominant Toffees display.

    Theo Walcott's shift is done. Warm applause as he makes way for Dominic Calvert-Lewin in the last few minutes.

    Brighton made their third and final change moments after conceding the third - Florin Andone on for Beram Kayal.

    This just hasn't been Brighton's day. There's more than 10 minutes left and you wouldn't be surprised if Everton scored at least one more.

  9. GOAL - Everton 3-1 Brighton


    Another super finish!

    Surely that's the points in the bag after a poor pass by Lewis Dunk is pounced on by Richarlison.

    The Everton forward runs from the halfway line into the Brighton penalty area before rounding Mathew Ryan and producing a cool finish.

    Can he finish with a hat-trick?

    Richarlison scores his second

    Gylfi Sigurdsson gets a pat on the head from a fan as he chases a lost cause and ends up in the advertising hoarding. He deserves that. The former Tottenham player has been a danger from the very start.

    Hardly a sniff for Glenn Murray as Brighton have spent chunks of this game camped inside their own half.

    Still only one goal in it though. Still time for Murray to make an impact.

    First change for Everton. Standing ovation for Bernard as he makes his way off and is replaced by Ademola Lookman.

    Brighton's second change sees Solly March off for Yves Bissouma.

    So much energy from Lucas Digne. He's been a real pain as far as Brighton's defence is concerned. Great performance by the Frenchman.

    Chris Hughton sends on Anthony Knockaert to try and get his team an equaliser. Jose Izquierdo makes way.

    A free-kick by Sigurdsson rebounds into the path of Richarlison who can't make a proper connection and Mathew Ryan gathers comfortably.

    Wave after wave of attacks from the men in blue.

    No sign of Brighton getting a second equaliser but there's still another half an hour for Chris Hughton's side to sort themselves out.

    Change coming up for the visitors.

    Everton 2-1 Brighton

    Everton are three points off a top-five spot in the 'as it stands' table.

    Will Marco Silva's side break into the top-six this season?

    The Toffees are within sight of a fourth win in five Premier League games.

    Everton 2-1 Brighton

    Brighton have made a slow start to the second half. Everton are on the rampage and this could get ugly unless the visitors sort themselves out. Too many sloppy passes by Chris Hughton's side.

  19. GOAL - Everton 2-1 Brighton

    Seamus Coleman

    They're ahead now!

    Seamus Coleman doesn't score many but the Everton captain has just produced a sumptuous low finish from outside the area which has restored his side's lead.

    Will his first goal since January 2017 prove the winner?

    How are Everton not ahead?

    Idrissa Gueye smacks the Brighton post from outside the area and the ball rebounds to Bernard who squares to Theo Walcott who incredibly misses from inside the six-yard area.

    If Everton don't win, Walcott is in for a sleepless night!
