Everton striker Cenk Tosun delighted with second goal for Brighton win

Everton striker Cenk Tosun delighted with second goal for Brighton win

Baines collected Tosun's pass, worked his way nicely into the box and slid a return ball to the striker who finished impressively from around 15 yards out.

A week earlier, the Turkey global had opened his account as the Blues slumped to a 2-1 reversal against Burnley.

"That is where we have been good, we've won the last two home games and only conceded two goals which were penalties". We missed clear chances but in the second half we were better and scored two goals.

"As a manager and a coach, you try to raise your players for every game but it's very hard against good opposition". On that basis we are a top-six side in points gained, and on an away basis we have to improve because we are right down at the bottom.

By that time Brighton were down to 10 men, Anthony Knockaert having been sent off for a wild tackle on Leighton Baines.

Allardyce said: "I think what's been missing is what we saw (against Brighton) - the constant level of performance we showed".

Seamus Coleman had the best of them in the first period as early as the third minute but he dragged his shot across goal while Yannick Bolasie nearly diverted a 22nd-minute corner inside the back post with an out-stretched leg.

Speaking to the press after the game, Hughton said: "Yes, I was surprised, particularly with the form we've been in and you can't come to Everton - who've been very good at home - and play at a level that doesn't allow you to get anything from the game".

He told Sky Sports: "It was [a bad day at the office], if we play at a level like that, we will find it hard to win any Premier League games".

The result leaves Brighton in 11th spot on the league table, seven points above the drop zone.

Earlier, Ryan had some hairy first-half moments, firstly where he flapped at a corner where Yannick Bolasie hit the side netting.

"But I think with what Everton have, and the defensive options they have, the first goal was going to be important, and it has turned out to be".
