Burnley vs Brighton & Hove Albion

Turf Moor is the venue as hot relegation candidates Burnley take on mid-table Brighton & Hove Albion.

It’s now a near-certainty that Burnley will immediately return to the Championship after a three-game winless league run (D2, L1), bookended by last weekend’s 1-0 defeat to Everton in a relegation-six points, left them six points adrift of safety. With only six rounds left, there’s no margin for error, yet Burnley’s disastrous Premier League record at Turf Moor paints a bleak picture (W2, D3, L11). Vincent Kompany’s inability to handle Burnley’s defensive woes has seen the Clarets concede a league second-high 36 goals on home turf. That’s particularly concerning, considering they’ve failed to keep a clean sheet in their last three home league meetings with Brighton (D1, L2).

On the other hand, Brighton’s mini-revival in mid-March (W2) is long gone, with the visitors heading into proceedings having failed to win any of their last three league matches (D1, L2). Back-to-back scoring blanks in the build-up to this trip have further derailed their faint European hopes. Confidence stems from Brighton’s imperious form against low-profile opponents, with their last three top-flight victories coming against teams starting the round in the bottom seven. That’s perhaps the only consolation manager Roberto De Zerbi can take ahead of this journey after overseeing just one triumph in the last ten Premier League away games (D3, L6).
