Brighton: Ryan; Lamptey, Webster, Dunk, Burn; Bissouma, Stephens, Propper; Mooy, Trossard; Maupay.



Recent Form


Brighton have had a solid season.

Burnley are unbeaten in seven games and have looked more than comfortable defensively, with Nick Pope looking to be the first English 'keeper to win the Golden Glove since Joe Hart in 2014/15.


Brighton have had a poor run of form recently with three losses in their last six games, albeit they came against Liverpool, Man City and Man United. They have struggled for goals though, only scoring twice in one game since lockdown - the 2-1 win over Arsenal. Despite this, Graham Potter will be very happy with Brighton's season as they have secured their Premier League status for another year, and have surpassed last year's points total in doing so.


Here's how both teams have fared in their last five matches:


Burnley


Norwich 0-2 Burnley (18/07)
Burnley 1-1 Wolves (15/07)
Liverpool 1-1 Burnley (11/07)
West Ham 0-1 Burnley (08/07)
Burnley 1-1 Sheffield United (05/07)


Brighton


Brighton 0-0 Newcastle (20/07)
Southampton 1-1 Brighton (16/07)
Brighton 0-5 Man City (11/07)
Brighton 1-3 Liverpool (08/07)
Norwich 0-1 Brighton (04/07)



Prediction


Pope has been inspired since the restart

This game screams 0-0.


Both teams are more than comfortable defensively, and neither team is particularly prolific going forward.


Prediction: Burnley 0-0 Brighton
