Burnley continue to thrive even with a growing injury list while Brighton are struggling badly right now. 6 of Burnley's last 8 matches have ended with a 1-0 scoreline and with Brighton hardly prolific, the team that scores first will likely win this one. Do not expect both teams to score in this.

The last time these two sides met was back in April 2016 in what was a top-of-the-table clash in the Championship. It was honours even in the end as the game finished 2-2 but it was a draw that would suit Sean Dyche’s side more as they would eventually go on to secure automatic promotion. As for Brighton, they missed out on goal difference on the final day of the season and would also fail to win the play-offs that same season.
