It has been a brilliant start to the season for Everton heading into the international break. Next up for them, however, is the derby against champions Liverpool, and Ancelotti will be hoping Richarlison and Coleman recover from their injuries in time for that, while Pickford’s form has to be a concern. Brighton, meanwhile, face Crystal Palace on October 18.
Everton claim the points, and another win in the Premier League, which the Merseysiders now top after four games. It’s a seventh straight win in all competitions for the Toffees, with goals from Calvert-Lewin, Mina and James – who scored twice and set up another – enough to see off Brighton, who scored through Maupay and Bissouma.
