Graham Potter’s team, surprisingly to everyone, is in the top three in the Football Championship of England. Even though only two rounds have been played, such a result inspires respect for the team. Twice Brighton left the field as the winner. In the first round, Graham Potter’s charges beat Burnley 2-1 away. In the second round, Watford was defeated with a score of 2-0. As a result, Brighton has 6 points and the 3rd position in the rating.
The Merseysiders in blue are playing well so far. After two matches played, Everton has 4 points and is sixth in the standings. Rafael Benitez’s side scored three points in the first round, winning 3-1 against Southampton. In the second round, Everton earned a point in an away match against Leeds following a 2-2 draw.
