Everton, denied a fifth-minute penalty following a VAR review, came close again through Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison. But they were indebted to Jordan Pickford for a terrific late stop from Glenn Murray to preserve their lead. Everton claimed the advantage their superiority merited seven minutes before half-time. Richarlison continued his run into the penalty area after passing to Bernard and, via Lucas Digne’s low delivery, reclaimed possession 12 yards from goal. The Brazilian spun with one deft left-foot touch and scored with his right boot, planting a precise finish past Mat Ryan.
Everton have conceded only once in that period, too. A productive run has lifted Everton to 28 points and only four adrift of sixth spot. The Winner Everton confirmed their first-half superiority when Richarlison angled home his 10th goal of the season in all competitions – and eighth in the Premier League. The Brazilian’s finish was of the highest order and we’ll come to it shortly. But the football which preceded Everton’s goal is worthy of revisiting. Bernard had not long advanced through the centre of the park and set up Richarlison for a shot saved by Mat Ryan when Everton took a similar route to goal.

The ball alighted with Bernard about 20 yards out after Gylfi Sigurdsson’s free-kick was half cleared. As defenders rushed to block, Bernard feinted and walloped a shot which thudded into towering centre-back Webster. Bernard again after 37 minutes, haring through the middle and sliding a pass right for Richarlison, whose low drive was fended off by Ryan. Duffy’s touch following a wicked right-wing Sigurdsson free-kick 60 seconds after Everton’s opening goal was just sufficient to distract Michael Keane, the defender not able to untangle his feet to shoot.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side had a number of chances to add to their lead – they had 14 shots to Brighton’s nine – but had to survive a flurry of nervy episodes late in the game.

Mercifully, it dropped the other side of the woodwork and spared the home team. Seven-Up Three points here makes it 14 from 21 – or two per game – from Everton’s past seven Premier League matches. Carlo Ancelotti has won three of four league games in charge, to boot, collecting the baton from Duncan Ferguson and running with it. Goodison Park is re-establishing its reputation as an Everton stronghold, too. This victory makes it four unbeaten at home in the top-flight.
Meantime, however, Everton had kept pushing for a second. Calvert-Lewin used his hand to force the ball in after Keane hit the bar with a header – that from a corner earned when another Richarlison blast was diverted over. Hearts momentarily sunk all around Goodison, save for the pocket for away fans, with two-and-a-half minutes to play. Maupay forced through a pass for Murray, whose hook at goal on the stretch appeared for all the world destined to nestle inside Pickford’s left post.
