David Seaman has now predicted who will win as Everton travel to Brighton & Hove Albion on Monday evening.
Sean Dyche’s Everton travel to the Amex Stadium in desperate need of points and face a Brighton side in an excellent run of form.
Indeed, it will be a tough game for the Blues, a sentiment echoed by David Seaman who predicts on his Seaman Says podcast that Roberto de Zerbi’s Brighton will win 2-0.
The former England goalkeeper says: “The teams below Leeds, I’m giving nothing, so I’m going to go for Brighton 2-0 Everton.”
Everton are slumped in 19th place in the Premier League table with just four games to go and face title-challenging Manchester City following Monday’s trip to Brighton.
The Seagulls meanwhile have European ambitions, and demolished strugglers Wolves 6-0 last week, before snatching a late 1-0 victory over Manchester United on Thursday night.

Everton will have to keep the energy from Leicester ongoing to prove Seaman wrong
Everton’s 2-2 draw at Leicester City’s King Power Stadium earlier this week provided the Toffees with hope that there is a way out of the current predicament, as Sean Dyche’s side created the better opportunities to win the game.
The fit-again Dominic Calvert-Lewin converted his first half penalty well and was unfortunate not to double his tally for the afternoon, though the Blues will need to be clinical going into the last few weeks of the season.
A lack of goals has been an issue throughout this campaign, with Everton the lowest scorers in the division with 27 strikes in 34 games.
The £60m loss of Richarlison last summer to Spurs has been sorely felt at Goodison Park, as have Calvert-Lewin’s absences through injury.
Indeed, Everton will need to be in top form for Monday night’s trip to Brighton and would ideally need to return to Merseyside with something from the game.
It will be an enormous few weeks for the Toffees.
