Brighton vs Everton: Confirmed teams as both sides make changes and live talkSPORT commentary stream

Brighton and Everton meet on Saturday at the Amex, live on talkSPORT 2, both looking to build on positive Boxing Day performances.

Chris Hughton’s side came from behind to draw 1-1 with Arsenal thanks to a goal from Jurgen Locadia, cancelling out Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s opener.

Everton beat Brighton 3-1 at Goodison in November

Meanwhile, Marco Silva’s men thrashed Burnley 5-1 at Turf Moor by virtue of strikes from Yerry Mina, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Richarlison and a Lucas Digne brace.

The Toffees are currently eighth in the table, joint on 27 points with two sides below them.

The Seagulls sit 13th and could end up just two points behind their opposition on Saturday, should they beat them.

For Everton, Ademola Lookman misses a third successive matche with an ankle injury.
