Everton 2-0 Brighton and Hove Albion Blues pick up much-needed three points against Seagulls

Tosun spoke to after the game to describe the feeling among the camp following the win and how well he feels he is now settling into his new club after a slow start to his Premier League career.

"There was our opportunity to improve and come out better second half, and unfortunately we didn't". They just did not manage to do it very well. A striker should really only be judged on the goals they score. Once the first goal goes in it lifts the crowd here and it becomes very hard.

Glenn Murray will pose the Toffees backline a massive threat.

- Everton have lost only one of their 10 previous league meetings with Brighton and Hove Albion (W5 D4).

Sam Allardyce has allayed injury fears over Theo Walcott after the Everton forward limped out of the Toffee's Premier League victory over Brighton on Saturday. When Rooney set Sigurdsson up for a shot from the edge of the area right at the end of the first half, Shane Duffy threw himself in the way before the ball reached Ryan.

Albion's visit has been billed as "massive" for Allardyce's future on Merseyside by ex-Everton captain Kevin Ratcliffe.

'We're thankful to a lot of people but, of course, it's the players, the players have enjoyed being in this division so far and are desperate to make sure that we stay there'.

Still adjusting to going behind, the visitors first made the mistake of allowing Baines to carry the ball into the area, then they completely failed to spot Tosun unmarked in front of goal.

"I have no problems with the red card, it is a red card".

Rooney played in a deep-lying role and enjoyed plenty of time on the ball, with Cenk Tosun doubling the Toffees' lead before the former England worldwide saw his spot-kick saved by Mat Ryan.
