Cenk Tosun and Bong scores as Everton beats Brighton

Hughton

Baines collected Tosun's pass, worked his way nicely into the box and slid a return ball to the striker who finished impressively from around 15 yards out.

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.

"There was our opportunity to improve and come out better second-half and unfortunately, we didn't".

"That's two in two now and we saw the type of finish he delivered, at the right time for us, because going into the final stages of the game just 1-0 up can be very nervous".

The Toffees have secured 26 of their 34 points at home and while their record on the road - one Premier League win all season - has caused them problems, their manager is looking for a reaction from his players on a return to familiar surroundings.

"I was anxious it was going to hit the crossbar and bounce back out!"

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.

Brighton remain seven points clear of the relegation zone, but they must still face all of the current top four before the end of the season.

Allardyce also confirmed that Morgan Schneiderlin and Idrissa Gueye missed the win through illness, adding: 'We knew Morgan was ill and I think Gana has caught the same bug so first thing this morning we got the call that he couldn't make it so we had a little think about it.

"I think with what Everton have, the first goal was going to be important and it turned out to be", Hughton continued.

"It is hard to keep them levels consistently in every game".

The home side might have been expected to carry the greater threat but the extent of their dominance, particularly in the first half, was surprising.
