Team News

Neal Maupay is back in contention for the weekend after being left out of the 2-1 defeat toatTottenham last week due to a poor attitude and rumours of a training ground bust-up. Mathew Ryan was on the bench for the Spurs game and will hope to return to the starting lineup in place of Robert Sanchez.

Solly March faces a late fitness test after landing awkwardly in the Spurs game and Alireza Jahanbakhsh is also in a race to be ready after returning to first-team training this week.

Burnley captain Ben Mee is hoping to make his return to first-team action on the south coast after being absent since June with a thigh injury. Phil Bardsley could return after a positive COVID test and Johann Berg Gudmunsson could shake off a calf injury in time to feature.

Predicted Lineups

Brighton: Ryan; Webster, Veltman, Burn; Lamptey, White, Bissouma, March; Lallana, Maupay, Trossard.

Burnley: Pope; Lowton, Long, Tarkowski, Taylor; Brownhill, Westwood, Stephens, McNeil, Wood, Barnes.

Recent Form

Burnley have had a torrid start to the season, picking up only one point in six games. Two of the three goals they have scored so far came in their 4-2 loss to Leicester on the opening day, and since then losses to Southampton, Newcastle have followed before a 1-1 draw with newly-promoted West Brom.

A 1-0 loss to Spurs followed before Chelsea's convincing 3-0 win at Turf Moor.

Brighton's Premier League campaign has seen them play one more game than Friday's opponents Burnley. The Seagulls only win of the season was a 3-0 victory over Newcastle at St James' Park back in September.

Losses to Manchester United and Everton followed before draws with Crystal Palace and West Brom. Spurs ran out 2-1 winners over Brighton last week with Gareth Bale scoring the winner.

Burnley 0-1 Tottenham (26/10)
West Brom 0-0 Burnley (19/10)
Newcastle 3-1 Burnley (3/10)
Burnley 0-1 Southampton (26/9)


Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 Brighton (1/11)

Everton 4-2 Brighton (3/10)
Brighton 2-3 Manchester United (26/9)

Burnley have struggled to score goals this season. Whereas Brighton have notched 11 goals already, their downfall has been their defensive record.

The return of Ryan in goal and Maupay up front should see Brighton beat Burnley in what will no doubt be a tough game.

Prediction: Brighton 2-0 Burnley
