Burnley’s winning run has come to a halt as they have picked up only one point from their last two games. Can the Clarets bounce back when they face Brighton and Hove Albion at Turf Moor on Saturday?
Burnley lost ground on Arsenal last week as they could only draw 1-1 at Stoke City. Burnley currently occupy the seventh position in the table, and it appears that they would finish the season in the same spot. However, after Southampton’s exit from FA Cup, Sean Dyche’s men are set to play in Europe next season.
They will be eager to return to the winning ways against the Seagulls, who are without a win in their last six games.
Brighton occupy the 13th spot with 36 points, which gives them a seven-point cushion from the relegation zone. Brighton’s current total should prove enough in the end, but they are not totally safe yet.
Brighton’s upcoming fixtures are against Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United, so the game against the Clarets might be the best opportunity for them to add some more points to their total.
The Seagulls come into this game on the back of an encouraging 1-1 home draw with Tottenham. However, their away form has been terrible, and we don’t see much hope for them against Burnley.
Earlier this season, both sides played a goalless draw at Amex Stadium.
