  1. Goodbye

    Brighton 1-0 Everton

    Right that's me done. Thanks for joining me this afternoon. You can keep abreast of all the reaction from today's Premier League matches here.

  2. FULL-TIME

    Brighton 1-0 Everton

    And that is that. Brighton win at home again. That's 33 points at the Amex in 2018.

  3. Post update

    Brighton 1-0 Everton

    Steve Foster

    Now I'm not quite old enough to remember this...but it's fair to say Brighton's record against Everton isn't great.

    The Seagulls have won just two of their 14 matches against Everton (D5 L7). Their last was a 3-1 victory in the top-flight in February 1982. Tony Grealish, Gerry Ryan and Steve Foster (pictured) scored that day.

    If you want to delve back further to the other......that was a 5-2 Brighton win but it stretches back to an FA Cup tie in February 1924.

    I definitely wasn't around then. Can they hang on here....?

  4. Post update

    Brighton 1-0 Everton

    Chance for Everton. The ball ball bobbles around the Brighton penalty area but keeper David Button is right behind Oumar Niasse's effort.

  5. Post update

    Brighton 1-0 Everton

    Everton still pushing here.

    Lucas Digne pings a shot in from outside the box but it is well blocked.

  6. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Brighton 1-0 Everton

    Everton's Kurt Zouma hits the bar with a header from Gylfi Sigurdsson's free-kick. So close to an equaliser.

  7. Post update

    Brighton 1-0 Everton

    Nothing doing for Everton here. They need to create something and quickly. But the hosts are standing firm at the moment.

  8. SUBSTITUTION

    Brighton 1-0 Everton

    Oumar Niasse replaces Bernard for Everton.

  9. Post update

    Brighton 1-0 Everton

    Big chance for Brighton to kill the game. The ball is well worked to Glenn Murray inside the visitors penalty area but Michael Keane does well to block with his chest.

  10. SUBSTITUTION

    Brighton 1-0 Everton

    Glenn Murray replaces Florin Andone for the hosts.

  11. Post update

    Brighton 1-0 Everton

    Look like Everton have gone to a 4-4-2 as they attempt to rescue this game.

  12. SUBSTITUTION

    Brighton 1-0 Everton

    Another change for Everton. Dominic Calvert-Lewin for Andre Gomes.

  13. Post update

    Brighton 1-0 Everton

    Brilliant from Bernard. He beats two Brighton defenders down the left and cuts inside but then lets himself down in front of goal.

    He's gone for a curler into the far top right corner but he gets it all wrong striking across the ball and slashing it well wide.

  14. SUBSTITUTION

    Brighton 1-0 Everton

    Attacking change for Everton. Gylfi Sigurdsson replaces Yerry Mina.

  15. 'Great decision'

    Brighton 1-0 Everton

    Paul Ince

    Former England midfielder on Final Score

    It comes off an Everton player. It’s poor defending really. Andre Gomes is just standing there and doesn’t react to the ball.

    It’s a great decision by the linesman.

  16. GREAT SAVE!

    Brighton 1-0 Everton

    Quite a lot actually and the visitors are almost on level terms.

    Richarlison works a yard of space in the penalty area from Yerry Mina's touch but his drive smashes against the left post thanks to a crucial intervention from home keeper David Button.

  17. Post update

    Brighton 1-0 Everton

    Now what have Everton got in response?

  18. GOAL - Brighton 1-0 Everton

    Jurgen Locadia

    Brighton have not had long to wait for their goal. Pascal Gross' corner goes to the back post and the ball ricochets in to Jurgen Locadia's path. Six yards from goal the forward lashes the ball home.

    The forward initially looked a mile offside and the assistant referee flagged. But referee Andy Madley goes over for a chat and gives the goal. Correct decision - the touch into Locadia was off Everton's Andre Gomes.

    Locadia and Brighton celebrate
  19. GREAT SAVE!

    Brighton 0-0 Everton

    Brilliant from Jordan Pickford. Solly March swings in the perfect near post delivery straight on to the head of Florin Andone.

    The Romania international is six yards out but Pickford tips over.

    Pickford saves Andone header
  20. YELLOW CARD

    Brighton 0-0 Everton

    Everton's Yerry Mina steams over into a tackle with Bernardo who is galloping down the left. But that's mistimed and a caution all day long.

    Promising position here for the hosts.
