Brighton make Premier League history

Vitaliy Mykolenko put Everton in front after seven minutes on Saturday afternoon before an 84th-minute own goal from Ashley Young secured a point for Brighton.

After the weekend’s draw, Brighton are the first team to both score and concede in each of their first 11 games in an English top-flight campaign since Tottenham in 1988/89.

Despite drawing with a struggling Everton, Brighton are still in a very healthy position in the table after 11 games. However, Roberto De Zerbi was not happy when speaking post-Everton:

“We are in seventh place in the table, competing in the Europa League. I could be happy, pleased with the performances at the beginning of the season. No, it’s not like this. I’m not happy,” he said.

“We can compete stronger, everyone can do something more. It’s not a problem if we lose a player in the transfer market if we are competing in three games.

“We are Brighton and we have to play better. We have to push more or we can change the target, but I can fix the target. “Our target is high and we have to push and get more points. We have potential to win more games.”
