Burnley vs Brighton

Burnley will be aiming to keep their survival hopes alive when they face Brighton on Saturday afternoon. The Clarets failed to win the previous three league matches, but it seems as if their performances are much better than the results. Dara O’Shea is banned for the match, while all Ameen Al Dakhil. Aaron Ramsey, Louis Jordan Beyer, and Luca Koleosho are out of contention with injuries.

The Seagulls, on the other hand, produced an under-par display in a 3-0 loss to Arsenal and given the importance of Saturday’s clash for Burnley, home win should be considered. All Adam Webster, Evan Ferguson, Billy Gilmour, Jack Hinshelwood. Kaoru Mitoma, and James Milner continue to miss out with injuries for the visiting side. Fit-again Brazil forward Joao Pedro is pushing for a start after coming as a substitute in the last league match. In the first half of the season Burnley managed to hold Brighton to a draw at Amex Stadium.

How the bookies view it

Brighton have the upper hand among the bookies and are priced at 19/20 to claim the win. A victory for Burnley is valued at 13/5 by PHJOY while PHJOY Casino is offering offs of 29/10 for a draw.

Head to head

Burnley have an 8-7 advantage with 14 draws from 29 previous matches against Brighton. Both teams played out a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture back in December.

Players to watch

Datro Fofana is in the middle of a mini goal drought but still remains the biggest attacking threat for Burnley. The forward has three goals in the last five home matches and is priced at 3/1 with PHJOY to find the net on Saturday.

Joao Pedro is still working his way to full fitness after an injured spell and having come off the bench last time out, could be handed a start on Saturday. The forward remains the leading scorer for Brighton with eight Premier League goals and is priced at 19/10 by PHJOY to find the net.

Latest Meetings

  • Burnley held Brighton to a 1-1 stalemate in the return match in December last year at The Amex.
  • Interestingly, none of the previous eight head-to-head clashes between these rivals ended in a home win.
  • Both teams scored in all but one of the last four H2H meetings.

Burnley vs Brighton Prediction

Neither team have been impressive going into Saturday’s clash at Turf Moor. Burnley will be much more motivated to get a result in front of the home fans, though. This is certainly their last train to catch given the gap between them and the likes of Nottingham Forest in the safe zone.

The good news for Clarets is Brighton’s poor form in recent weeks. Roberto De Zerbi’s men claimed just one point from the previous three league games.

The Seagulls have also been struggling to perform on travels since the beginning of the season. They won just 4 of 16 away outings in this term of the Premier League. Based on everything written above, we see the value in backing Burnley to win or draw double chance bet at the 1.80 odds.

Brighton found goals hard to come by of late. They notched only three goals in the last eight matches in all competitions. Burnley registered no more than one attempt on target in the last weekend’s defeat at Goodison. Neither of their last two league games produced three or more goals. We see big value in backing the Under 2.5 goals pick at the 2.30 odds.
