Everton have lost only one of their last 19 Premier League matches against newly-promoted teams (W10 D8 L1).
Ronald Koeman has won only 18.2% of his PL away matches as Everton manager (P22 W4 D7 L11).
Chris Hughton has lost only one of his five previous matches against Everton as a manager (W2 D2 L1).
Pascall Gross has covered the third-most distance in the PL this season (82.1km) and has scored or assisted four of Brighton's five goals.
Chris Hughton: “They’ll be desperate to get a result away from home and that will, if anything, make them more dangerous."
Ronald Koeman: "Brighton is a tough test for us. We have analysed them and they have had two wins from their last two home games so we know they will be confident."
