Brighton welcome Burnley to Amex Stadium in the encounter in round 26 of the Premier League. Despite the decline, it is clear that “Seagull” is still much more appreciated than the away team. Plus the fulcrum of the yard, victory is hard to escape from the hands of teacher and coach Graham Potter.
Brighton has just suffered a 0-2 defeat as a guest of Man Utd, the result is not difficult to predict when their opponent is far superior in strength and in an extremely thirsty situation. After having won 2-0 at Watford before, Brighton had to return to the ground. In general, this is a period when Brighton is not in a really stable form. Throughout the last 6 outings in all competitions, Brighton only had 1 win (draw 3, lose 2). Especially at home, “Seagull” only won 1/8 of the recent pick-up times.
After 24 matches played in the Premier League this season, Brighton only won 7, drew 12 and lost 5. Holding 33 points, Brighton ranked 9th in the rankings. In theory, Brighton still has a chance to compete for a ticket to the continental arena when it is 6 points behind the top 6. However, it is a very difficult goal, because above the teachers and coaches, there are a series of big names. In the last 5 encounters with Burnley, Brighton are unbeaten (draw 3, won 2) and that is the basis for the Amex team to aim for 3 points.
Burnley marched to Brighton’s field after a 0-1 defeat at home to Liverpool. This result also extended Burnley’s winless streak to 12 in all competitions. In the English Premier League this season, Burnley only had 1 victory when facing Brentford in October last year. With a record of 11 draws and 9 losses, Burnley is currently at the bottom of the rankings. They brought back 14 points through 21 matches and are now 7 points behind the safety group.
Despite still playing less than 2 games, it is difficult for Burnley to continue to stay in the Premier League after this season ends. Burnley is a team that owns a very bad attack and has only shot 17 goals since the beginning of the season. Statistics show that Burnley is unbeaten in the last 5 away matches against Brighton with 4 of them ending in a draw. Besides, 8 out of 12 matches between the two teams ended with a split scenario. However, with the poor performance throughout the season, the door to Burnley in this match is very small.
