What the managers are saying?
Chris Hughton (Brighton): “I came into a great club here nearly four years ago – there’s a lot of good people in place.
“In this day and age four years in a manager’s role is quite uncommon – especially in this league.
“It’s difficult but all those good things here have contributed.”
Marco Silva (Everton): “We had a tough Sunday [6-2 defeat to Tottenham]. It was a tough result for us, our fans and the club.
“Football gives you the opportunity to do something in the next game. It’s good the Burnley game came so quick and we did the important thing, we won the game.
“We reacted well. It was tough but it was what we needed to do. We knew it would be difficult and we played with quality, commitment and focus as well.”
Brighton are without goalkeeper Mathew Ryan, who is on international duty at the Asian Cup, while defender Lewis Dunk returns from suspension.
Everton only have one injury issue, as Ademola Lookman has missed the last two matches with an ankle injury and remains a doubt.
