Boss Chris Hughton has refuted the idea that Albion are meeting Everton at a good time and has warned they will be dangerous.

Sunday's visitors to the Amex are surprisingly languishing in 16th, behind the Seagulls on goal difference and two places lower, after some tough early fixtures.

Hughton said: "We've all been there, you have to look at the team and the players you are playing against. They've played four big teams in seven games and probably not started as they would have liked to.

"But with all good players and good teams they will turn it around, so if anything I look at it the other way round, they are playing a team just promoted and will be dangerous."
