Albion must overcome one  of their toughest Amex adversaries as they look to turn up the pressure in the race for Europe.

The Seagulls face an Everton side managed by the man who handed them their biggest home defeats in each of the last two seasons.

Sean Dyche’s teams are unbeaten in his last seven visits to the Amex, including Everton’s shock 5-1 triumph last season and Burnley’s 3-0 win in the previous campaign.

The home hammering by the Toffees towards the end of last season was a traumatic afternoon for Albion but head coach Roberto De Zerbi has often admitted he is driven by the memory of bad results.

The Seagulls boss will speak to the media this afternoon.

Dyche’s teams have had just 27% of possession in their last wins at the Amex and he told reporters yesterday: “Tactically you have to be right.

“Equally, you have to be right in transition.

“Most teams who have done well against them have worked well in transition, including ourselves of course last season.

“But we can’t just rely on that.

“We have got to work well on the ball in possession when we get it as well.”

Dyche’s overall record at the Amex with Watford, Burnley and Everton shows three wins, five draws and just two defeats, both of which were more than ten years ago.

Two of the draws were last-gasp affairs which would have felt like defeats for Albion and his sides have managed 11 points from their last five visits.

Albion are currently unbeaten in ten home Premier League games.
