Burnley vs Brighton: Predictions
Brighton have doubled down on the defensive side of their game in recent weeks and to great effect. The Seagulls have taken seven points from three games against Leeds, Fulham and Liverpool without conceding a single goal, rounding that run off in great style at Anfield in mid-week.
Graham Potter’s side remain in the North West this weekend to face a Burnley team enduring a two-game losing streak, falling 2-0 to both Chelsea and Manchester City recently. Sean Dyche’s men did, however, beat Aston Villa 3-2 prior to that, following up from a 1-0 win of their own at Anfield.
These two haven’t been known for their attacking flair this season but expect a fierce and competitive game nonetheless as they seek to increase the gap between themselves and the relegation zone.
