Everton continued their fine home form as they earned a 2-0 victory over Brighton and Hove Albion in the Premier League with former Beşiktaş star Cenk Tosun and Gaetan Bong scoring in Saturday's match.

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

"We've seen teams that have been in trouble and have got out of that, we've seen teams that have gone the other way and that's only a effect of losing two games or so".

"And the second goal is why we bought the lad from Turkey, why we brought Cenk into the club".

"We know what the levels are, and we have reached those levels in the run we've been on, and we were well below that today".

Baines' return to action for the first time since November headlined Everton's four changes and Allardyce's men - beaten 2-1 at Burnley last time out - showed some positive early intent. "We all felt it, I think you do".

The three points move Everton up to ninth in the Premier League table, and having gone into the contest with fears about being sucked into the relegation mix, amazingly Toffees fans can look up and maybe see their side finish strong and qualify for European competition next season.

Brighton, who saw their five-match unbeaten run in the league ended, are on course for survival in their maiden Premier League campaign.

The Seagulls now have a healthy seven-point cushion on the drop zone ahead of Saturday's trip to Everton but boss Hughton is wary that their circumstances could quickly change.

Boss Chris Hughton, whose side beat Arsenal in their previous game, said: "It's our first season in this division, we're playing week in, week out against very good sides, and it's hard to keep those levels consistently in every game". We knew how we had to improve in the second half.
