(EFE) – Everton led by Spanish Rafael Benítez won at the Amex Stadium against Brighton and Howe Albion (0-2) and chased West Ham, with whom they share the leadership of the Premier.
Benítez’s team accumulates two victories and a draw. The second triumph of the ‘toffees’ so far this year led to the first defeat of their rival, who counted their matches by victories.
But Graham Potter’s team could not cope with Liverpool’s machinery, which became strong as soon as it took advantage in the 41st minute with a good goal from Damaral Gry, who, after receiving the ball from Brazilian Allan, culminated a good play individual with a cross shot that beat the Spanish Robert Sánchez.
Everton sealed the victory at game time. A foul inside the box by Joel Veltman was sanctioned with a penalty that was transformed by Dominic Calvert Lewin.
