That brings an end to our coverage of the Premier League clash between Brighton and Hove Albion and Everton at Amex Stadium. Thank you very much for joining us. Goodbye!  
Brighton will hope to build on this result in their next Premier League outing. They travel to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea. Everton, on the other hand, host Tottenham as they seek to keep their top-four chances alive. 
The points are shared as neither Brighton nor Everton could find the breakthrough in an evenly-matched contest. After a first half of few chances, the match burst into life after the restart. Brighton had the best opportunities to take the lead, but Maupay fired a close-range shot from the middle of box wide after 76 minutes. Two minutes later, Sanchez made a fine stop to keep out Dunk’s header and ensure that the Toffees left Amex Stadium with a point.  
90' + 3' Gross goes for goal from the free-kick, but he sends it straight into the wall. 
M. Holgate
Yellow Card
90' + 2' Gross is pulled to the floor by Holgate and the Seagulls have a free-kick down the left-hand side midway inside the Everton half. The Everton defender goes into the book. 
90' + 1' WAS THAT THE CHANCE?! Coleman wins the ball in an advanced position down the right flank and lays it off to his left for Iwobi. The attacker drifts inside and onto his left foot and, with the Brighton defenders backing off, lashes his strike wide of the far post. Sanchez looked beaten. 
90' There will be two minutes of added time at the end of this match.
89' OPPORTUNITY! Gross finds Lallana a few yards outside the visitors’ box, and the Englishman lifts his right-footed shot over the top from range. 
N. Broadhead
T. Davies
88' Ancelotti also turns to his bench for the closing stages, bringing on Broadhead for Davies. It is still 0-0. 
D. Burn
J. Moder
87' It is a double substitution for the Seagulls. Burn enters the fray in place of Moder. 
A. Jahanbakhsh
N. Maupay
87' With only a few minutes left to play, Potter makes his first change. Jahanbakhsh replaces Maupay. 
86' Welbeck has been involved in more Premier League goals against Everton than he has versus any other side (4 goals, 4 assists). Can he break the deadlock in the closing stages? 
84' Trossard takes the free-kick, and his effort deflects off the wall and out for a corner. The resulting set-piece bounces around inside the box before the ball is hooked to safety. 
M. Keane
Yellow Card
82' Keane cheaply loses the ball on the edge of his own box. In seeking to make amends, his slides in on Welbeck and catches the attacker. He is shown a yellow card and the Seagulls have a free-kick in a dangerous central area. 
80' The loose ball bounces kindly for Davies and, from a few yards outside the Brighton box, the midfielder strikes over the bar. 
78' TIPPED OVER! The visitors fail to clear the danger from a corner, and the ball gets recycled back into the box. Lallana’s lofted pass is flicked on by Dunk, and Olsen has to backtrack to tip the effort behind for another corner. 
76' MASSIVE CHANCE! Bissouma advances down the left and plays a simple pass inside for Maupay. From the centre of the box and with only the goalkeeper to beat, the forward lashes his shot high and wide of Olsen’s goal. 
76' WHAT A BLOCK! Welbeck receives the ball down the left-hand side of the Toffees’ area and opens up his body to shoot. The Englishman unleashes a fierce left-footed shot towards the near post, and Godfrey throws himself to the ground to make a crucial block. 
75' Trossard pulls back Holgate’s arm and Everton win a free-kick down the left flank inside their own defensive third. 
73' Rodriguez attempts to open up the space by playing a quick one-two with Richarlison, but the Brazilian’s return pass is too heavy and Dunk collects the ball. 
71' DECENT SAVE! The Toffees advance down the right-hand side of the field and Coleman steers a pass in field for Rodriguez. The Colombian skips beyond his man before seeing his effort from an acute angle tipped behind for a corner by Sanchez. 
70' OPENING! The home side work the ball into the penalty area from the right flank, and Lallana’s close-range shot from Trossard’s cutback cannons off Coleman and behind for a corner. 
69' Lallana drives to the edge of the box and looks to thread a throughball beyond the Everton defence for Trossard, but his intended pass is cut out. 
67' GOOD EFFORT! Gross' resulting corner is pulled back to the edge of the box, and Moder fires a first-time shot over the top of Olsen’s goal. 
66' DANGEROUS! Moder cuts onto his right foot and delivers an inviting cross into the back post. Holgate goes up with Welbeck lurking and nods the ball out for a corner. The English striker looked to be in. 
64' Richarlison has had fewer touches than any Everton player so far. He's touched the ball just 22 times.
62' Sigurdsson’s in-swinging delivery from the left is powerfully nodded away by Dunk with Keane arriving. 
60' VITAL TACKLE! Lallana feeds the ball to Welbeck down the left side of the visitors’ box, but he takes too long to take his shot and Coleman comes across to make a much-needed tackle and knock it behind for corner.
A. Iwobi
Y. Mina
58' Following that earlier injury, Mina makes way for Iwobi. It remains 0-0. 
57' There is a brief stoppage in play as Mina is down and in need of treatment. Iwobi is being readied. 
55' Maupay plays a reverse ball down the left-hand side of the Toffees’ box for Welbeck to chase, although he impedes Godfrey and the visitors win another free-kick. 
54' Bissouma catches Rodriguez’s heels and Everton win a free-kick on the halfway line. 
L. Dunk
Yellow Card
52' Dunk is the first player in this match to pick up a yellow card. The defender steps across Richarlison midway inside the Everton half, and he can have no complaints with the decision. 
50' NOT FAR AWAY! Maupay uses Welbeck’s overlapping run to open the space and cut back onto his left foot. With the outside of his boot, the striker sees his shot deflect out for a corner off Keane from the edge of the box.
48' Brighton have now failed to score a first half goal in 16 of their 31 Premier League games this season.
46' Bissouma’s long-range drive sails over the top of Olsen’s goal. 
46' We are back underway! England, the referee, blows his whistle and Brighton get the second half kicked off. 
Potter will be the happier of the two managers, but he will want to see more of a cutting edge in the second half. The Seagulls have got into promising areas through Bissouma, Trossard and Maupay, but they remain unable to find a way through Everton’s resolute defence. Ancelotti, on the other hand, will expect to see a much better showing in the second half. Richarlison has struggled to get into the game, and has often been forced to drop deep to pick up the ball.  
Following a tightly-contested first half, there is nothing to separate Brighton and Everton at half-time. Olsen and Sanchez have thus far been untested, with Davies heading Everton’s best chance wide of the far post from the centre of the box on the half-hour mark. Minutes later, Maupay had the Seagulls’ most promising chance, but his near-post effort deflected inches wide of the far post off Mina, and the game remains without a goal. 
45' There will be one minute of added time at the end of the first half. 
43' Brighton sloppily loss the ball in a dangerous area and Everton advance down the right. Sigurdsson receives the ball on the edge of the box, and Bissouma makes a perfectly-timed tackle to steal possession away from the Icelandic playmaker. 
42' Maupay finds a yard of space and shapes to shoot from range. Sigurdsson is alert to the threat and gets back to cut out the danger. 
40' Brighton continue to control possession and Everton are happy to stand off them and let the Seagulls have the ball in deeper areas. 
38' OPENING! Maupay knocks the ball into Lallana’s path and, from the right side of the box, the midfielder drags his effort towards the near post. Olsen easily gathers it. 
37' The ball drops to Trossard and he opts to try his luck from range, but Mina stands tall to block his shot on the edge of the penalty area.
35' AUDACIOUS! Brighton play a number of one-touch passes on the edge of Everton’s box, and the ball is scooped into the air and not cleared by the visitors. Bissouma lays it up with his first touch before acrobatically lifting his shot onto the roof of the net from an acute angle.
33' The home team has won six of the seven Premier League meetings between Brighton and Everton since a 1-1 draw in October 2017.
31' CLOSE! Trossard finds himself in space down the right-hand side of the Toffees’ penalty area, and he pulls a pass back for Maupay in the centre of the box. The attacker sets himself before striking his close-range shot against Mina. 
30' CHANCE! Everton break with real pace down the right-hand side of the field through Coleman. The full-back drives into the final third and picks out Davies with a floated cross, but the midfielder’s tame header bounces wide of the far post. He should have done better there. 
29' Bissouma catches Rodriguez’s ankle and Everton win a free-kick midway inside their own half. 
27' Rodriguez picks the ball up midway inside the hosts’ half and attempts to switch the play to Digne. Gross spots the threat and gets across to make the interception. 
25' The away side break down the left, with Rodriguez’s throughball finding Sigurdsson. The midfielder lays it off to Digne, and his cross deflects out for a corner off Gross.  The set-piece comes to nothing.
23' Potter’s side are constantly pressing their visitors at present. Everton are struggling to find their rhythm and break out of their own half. 
21' The Seagulls are working the ball around inside their own half as they look to create an opening. Gross floats a cross from deep into the penalty area, but it is simple for Holgate to head clear. 
19' Bissouma is dispossessed high up the park and Rodriguez gets played in down the right side of Brighton’s box. The attacker cuts inside onto his left foot before being crowded out.
17' NOT FAR AWAY! Brighton once again attack down the right and a lofted cross is nodded down to the edge of the box. Moder arrives quickly and whips a first-time strike inches wide of the post. 
16' CHANCE! Lallana finds space on the edge of the box and delivers a curling cross in towards the far post. Welbeck arrives completely unmarked, but his first-time effort is tame and parried to safety by Olsen. 
15' WIDE! The Colombian midfielder is unable to wrap his foot around the set-piece, and he sends his strike wide of the far post. 
13' Moder brings down Coleman and the Toffees have a free-kick a few yards outside the hosts’ penalty area. Rodriquez is standing over it. 
11' Everton are enjoying their best spell of possession at present. Richarlison comes deep to collect the ball, and he wins a free-kick from Trossard on the halfway line.
9' The home side have started on the front foot. Moder picks the ball up midway inside the Everton half, drives towards the edge of the box and pulls a right-footed shot wide of the near post. 
7' Ancelotti is the seventh Everton manager to reach 50 games in charge in the Premier League. Each of the previous six managers avoided defeat in their 50th top-flight match with the Toffees. 
5' There was a momentary stoppage in play as Olsen was down after colliding with Mina following that earlier corner. He is now back to his feet and able to continue.
3' Lallana’s strike from range is deflected behind for a corner off Keane. The resulting set-piece is nodded behind for another corner by Keane, and Mina is able to clear the in-swinging delivery. 
1' Kick-off! The referee, Darren England, blows his whistle and Everton get the game underway. 
The teams are out, and kick-off will soon be upon us here at Amex Stadium. 
Brighton are unbeaten in all three home Premier League matches against Everton (W2 D1). They last lost at home to the Toffees in the top-flight in 1982-83.
The Seagulls come into this match on 32 points, six points ahead of 18th-place Fulham. Should Graham Potter’s side beat the Toffees, they will climb above Burnley and into 15th. In their last six matches at Amex Stadium, Brighton have won two matches, scoring six goals in that times. Everton, on the other hand, will move into seventh place with a victory over the Seagulls. Ancelotti’s side have only lost one of their last six games on the road, which came against Chelsea.
The home side are unchanged from their one-goal defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford. Carlo Ancelotti makes two alterations to his starting side for this clash. Andre Gomes misses out with a hamstring injury and is replaced by Sigurdsson, while Godfrey comes in to start in place of Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who is not named on the bench.
EVERTON SUBS: Joao Virginia, Harry Tyrer, Reece Welch, Kyle John, Niels Nkounkou, Isaac Price, Alex Iwobi, Nathan Broadhead.  
BRIGHTON SUBS: Jason Steele, Adam Webster, Dan Burn, Andi Zeqiri, Davy Propper, Steven Alzate, Jose Izquierdo, Alireza Jahanbakhsh, Alexis Mac Allister.
