Burnley's direct approach could play into Brighton's hands

Seagulls need points to secure their top-flight survival

Brighton could have plenty to celebrate
1 of 1

3pm Saturday

Brighton might need to add to their 36-point tally to stave off the drop and their best chance of points is when they take on seventh-placed Burnley at Turf Moor.

Europa League qualification looks highly likely for Burnley, who have opened up an eight-point gap to eighth-placed Everton.

But they have won just two of their last eight home fixtures and their direct style may play into the hands of Brighton, whose defence is anchored by powerful centre-backs Shane Duffy and Lewis Dunk.

Recommendation
Brighton draw no bet
1pt 6-4 general
