Tosun strikes as Everton earn vital victory over Seagulls

Brighton and Hove Albion boss Chris Hughton beats Klopp and Pochettino to Premier League prize

Having collected the ball from Leighton Baines just inside the box in the 76th minute, Tosun cracked a shot in off the bar to double the Toffees' lead.

After a tight and tense opening half to the game, Everton took control in the second period when an own goal from Gaetan Bong opened the scoring before Cenk Tosun netted once again.

A week earlier, the Turkey global had opened his account as the Blues slumped to a 2-1 reversal against Burnley.

"And the second goal is why we bought the lad from Turkey, why we brought Cenk into the club".

"It will be a hugely hard game for us (and) massively important".

But any hope Chris Hughton had of his side springing a surprise comeback was largely ended when Anthony Knockaert was shown a straight red card for an ugly, two-footed lunge on Baines.

"We've been on a very good run and came in to the game with a lot of confidence".

Everton - beaten in each of their last five away matches in the league, but looking against Brighton for a third successive home win - had the chance to make it 3-0 in the 88th minute, only for Wayne Rooney to see his penalty saved by Mathew Ryan.

Brighton, unbeaten in five league games prior to this, are now 11th in the table, still seven points clear of the relegation zone.

"But I think with what Everton have, and the defensive options they have, the first goal was going to be important, and it has turned out to be".

Brighton had barely been in the game from an attacking point of view but they forced the first save from either goalkeeper when Glenn Murray belted one from 25 yards that Jordan Pickford had to parry away with two strong fists. Generally, when we haven't been able to get to them levels we've stayed in the game, which is exactly what we'd done in the first-half.
