There’s a south coast smackdown on Monday Night Football this week, with Everton facing Brighton at the Amex Stadium.
Both sides have plenty to play for, albeit at opposite ends of the table.
So we reckon it could be an entertaining end to the weekend’s matchups!

Our Top Odds Pick – Both Teams To Score – 10/11 at Betfair
In one of the most open top-four races in years, eighth-placed Everton are still only five points behind fourth-placed West Ham, with a game in hand.
However, Carlo Ancelotti’s men are definitely drinking in the last-chance saloon, as anything but victory on the south coast would surely end any hopes of a Champions League berth.
Thankfully for long-suffering Toffees fans who have seen their side lose at home to Newcastle, Fulham and Burnley in 2021, this match is away from Goodison Park!
Everton have won seven of their last 10 away games, losing just one of them.
Brighton are in decent form themselves, winning two of their last three matches.
And Graham Potter’s men have an excellent home record against Everton, winning two and drawing one since their return to the Premier League in 2017.
This is one of those games where no result would be a surprise, and as we’re expecting an open game, just shy of even money for both teams to score seems like a good deal to us!
Our Long Shot – Leandro Trossard To Score – 7/2 at Betfred
Leandro Trossard is currently enjoying a purple patch for club and country, netting two in his last three Brighton matches and two in one game for the Belgian national side at the end of March.
He has quickly become a key player for the Seagulls, and his direct running should cause Everton plenty of problems, just as Michy Batshuayi, Dwight McNeil and Kai Havertz have in recent matches.
And we reckon 7/2 is a cracking price for him to find the net against a Toffees side that hasn’t kept a clean sheet in their last three Premier League games.
