Football Results: Everton 2-3 Brighton

Alexis Mac Allister scored a brace to give Brighton their first win at Goodison Park in one of the high-scoring football results of the weekend in the Premier League. Everton’s troubles at the back continued as the defense was responsible for Mac Allister’s first goal before Dan Burn doubled their lead with a corner straight from the training ground. Dominic Calvert-Lewin blazed his penalty over the crossbar and was made to pay when Mac Allister scored his second of the game. Anthony Gordon kept the score respectable with goals on either side of the visitor’s third goal.

Managers Reaction

Everton boss Rafael Benitez: “I like to remember the things we do well and remember the things we don’t do right. We have shown character in a lot of games, but we’re not capable to avoid mistakes that are costing us games. We had a slow start, and after another mistake conceding a corner. It’s a big mountain to climb and it’s not easy with these mistakes. You miss a penalty and it’s even more difficult.”

Brighton boss Graham Potter: “When you follow us, you can see we’re not one team and one team. It’s quite normal and it’s something we do anyway. The games depend on the opponent, and the consistency comes from the way we want to play. Who is playing and the formation is what changes.”
