Turf Moor is once again the destination for a Burnley match with the Clarets taking on Brighton this weekend. Burnley are stuck in the bottom three with only goal difference preventing them from dropping to the bottom. Brighton have moved to the 10th place in the table and it is a dream position for Chris Hughton’s men given that the team are just two points behind Manchester United.

Brighton may have picked up back-to-back league victories coming into this encounter but they are at a disadvantage on a number of aspects; the injury to Glen Murray, the suspension of Shane Duffy, and a mediocre away form are reasons to back away from Brighton. After an impressive performance against Liverpool, Burnley will be keen to kick on and pick up their first league victory since the end of September. Even though a majority of the recent matches between these two clubs have produced a draw, our preview would back a win for Burnley.

Brighton win odds: 2.62
Correct Score odds
Burnley have been able to manage less than a goal per game, but they have shown plenty of intent from set-piece situations. In fact, Brighton are also quite dangerous from set-piece situations and this may be the away team’s primary route towards goal – especially in the potential absence of Glen Murray. Burnley did have good opportunities against Liverpool and a repeat of the performance could see a 2-1 win for the home team, according to our correct score prediction.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
This match could see goals at both ends with Brighton able to score at least a goal in the last eight matches without exception. In fact, Manchester City and Liverpool are the only teams to have prevented Brighton from scoring in the last 14 league games. Burnley have the second-worst record at the back with 32 goals conceded already. Our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Sam Vokes is likely to start the game as the likes of Chris Wood have been quite disappointing this season. His physical presence can be a real problem for Brighton, who will be without Shane Duffy. Vokes is the last Burnley striker to have scored at Turf Moor and our first goalscorer prediction would back Vokes.
