THE TEAM NEWS

BRIGHTON

  • Brighton's solid start to life under Graham Potter was dented before the international break as they lost heavily 4-0 against Man City.
  • Big-money summer signing Webster came into the defence for that match and he will likely get a run in the side ahead of Duffy now.
  • Gross is expected to replace the injured Trossard while Murray may come back into the side up front at the expense of Bernardo.

Predicted line-up (3-4-1-2): Ryan; Webster, Dunk, Burn; Montoya, Propper, Stephens, March; Gross; Maupay, Murray

Unavailable: Schelotto (Injured), Izquierdo (Injured), Trossard (Injured), Bissouma (Injured)

Doubtful: Balogun (Injured)

BURNLEY

  • After winning their opening game, Burnley have only picked up a point from their last three games although they have had a tough schedule.
  • After losing 0-3 at home to Liverpool last time out, boss Sean Dyche is unlikely to ring the changes although he has a couple of doubts.
  • He will hope to be able to count on Gudmundsson once again while McNeil faces a late fitness test and the talented winger may miss out.

Predicted line-up (4-4-2): Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Pieters; Lennon, Westwood, Cork, McNeil; Barnes, Wood

Unavailable: Drinkwater (Personal reasons)

Doubtful: Brady (Injured), Gudmundsson (Injured), McNeil (Injured), Barnes (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

After 3-0 opening day victories for both of these teams, they have struggled in recent matches and both need a result to pick themselves back up. They come off heavy losses so that may lead to them taking a safety-first approach here which could lead to a potential stalemate and very few goals.
