PL: Brighton whitewash Everton to pile pressure on Frank Lampard


Brighton cranked up the heat on under-fire Everton boss Frank Lampard as they started 2023 with a clinical 4-1 win at Goodison Park.

The Toffees have now recorded just one win in their last 10 matches and sit 16th in the Premier League table, a point above the relegation zone, but with the four teams below them having each played one game fewer.

Kaoru Mitoma set Brighton on their way to victory with his fourth goal in six games before the break and, given the positive manner the hosts had started in, the result remained in the balance.But Everton simply capitulated in a six-minute period after the restart.

Teenage striker Evan Ferguson marked his full Premier League debut with a goal, before Solly March added a third and Idrissa Gueye’s glaring error allowed Pascal Gross to add a fourth.

Demarai Gray scored a late consolation penalty, but Brighton climb back up to eighth as a result of the crushing victory.
