Team news & rosters

PositionEverton roster
Goalkeepers Pickford, Begovic, Lonergan, Tyrer
Defenders Kenny, Holgate, Keane, Digne, Mina, Mykolenko, Godfrey, Coleman, Branthwaite, Welch
Midfielders Allan, Delph, Townsend, Doucoure, Gomes, Gbamin, Davies, Whitaker, Onyango

Forwards

Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin, Gray, Iwobi, Tosun, Gordon, Rondon, Simms, Dobbin

It's been far from an easy transition across Merseyside for former Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez this term, but he will hope that, with the new year, Everton can turn the page and pull themselves free of a relegation brawl.

Though it will likely come too early for new signing Vitaliy Mykolenko - the Ukraine international is one of the Toffees' first recruits of 2022 - they will be able to call on a host of talent, though Richarlison is expected to miss out with a calf issue.

Predicted Everton starting XI: Pickford; Coleman, Branthwaite, Keane, Godfrey; Allan, Doucoure, Gomes; Gray, Calvert-Lewin, Gordon.

PositionBrighton roster
Goalkeepers Sanchez, Scherpen, Steele, McGill
Defenders Lamptey, Cucurella, Webster, Dunk, Duffy, Roberts, Burn, Veltman, Turns
Midfielders Bissouma, Mac Allister, Mwepu, Gross, Lallana, Moder, Alzate, March, Richards, Leonard
Forwards Connolly, Maupay, Trossard, Welbeck, Locadia, Sarmiento

Having seen out 2021 with a dramatic point against Chelsea to seriously dent the Blues' hopes of a title challenge, Graham Potter now turns the Seagulls' attention towards the opposite end of the table.

While players such as Lewis Dunk, Jeremy Sarmiento and Jurgen Locadia are anticipated to be out of action, there are plenty of talents available - though Danny Welbeck may have to make do with the bench, despite his contribution last time out.

Predicted Brighton starting XI: Sanchez; Lamptey, Veltman, Burn, Cucurella; Bissouma, Mwepu; Mac Allister, Lallana, March; Maupay.
