EVERTON 4-2 BRIGHTON

FT: Man of the match James Rodriguez scored two second-half goals to help Everton go top of the Premier League after a 4-2 thrashing of Brighton at Goodison Park.

The in-form Dominic Calvert-Lewin had headed the home side into a 16th-minute lead, only for Jordan Pickford’s error to bring the visitors level four minutes before half-time.

However, Yerry Mina headed in James’s free kick in first-half injury time, with the Colombia playmaker netting twice in the second period to seal Everton’s win, before Yves Bissouma’s late consolation.

As a result, Carlo Ancelotti’s side have gone top of the table having won their opening four games of the season for the first time since 1969-70 – when they went on to win the league – while Brighton stay 12th.

GOAL! EVERTON 4-2 BRIGHTON (Bissouma, 90+2)

WHAT A GOAL! Well, the visitors have deserved that goal and it is the best of the match as the ball is cleared out to Bissouma on the edge of the box. And the midfielder then crashes a volley back into the bottom lefthand corner of the goal for just his third-ever strike for the club.
