Brighton vs Burnley Premier League predictions: Tips, odds and team news

Burnley will be hoping to step up their relegation battle when they travel to face Brighton on Saturday at 3pm (UK time).

Brighton vs Burnley odds

Brighton have moved themselves to within five points of the Premier League’s top four thanks to their recent run of two wins from their past three games. The Seagulls had been suffering in the Premier League, going six games without victory, though four of those were draws. They ended that run with victory after the November international break, beating Nottingham Forest in a dramatic match. Brighton then lost to Chelsea but bounced back with a 2-1 win over Brentford in midweek.

Burnley, meanwhile, are still in the relegation zone with just two wins from their opening 15 league games. One of those victories came against Sheffield United last weekend, a 5-0 thrashing of their relegation rivals, moving the Clarets within just two points of safety. However, they were unable to build on that victory, losing to Wolves in midweek.
