Burnley vs Brighton
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 8 December 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Turf Moor (Burnley).
Burnley were looking to end a dreadful streak of five defeats and a draw in six Premier League matches when Jack Cork pushed them in front against Liverpool on Wednesday evening at Turf Moor. The Clarets looked to be well on pace to take the most of Klopp’s rather odd starting line-up without Mane, Salah and Firmino in it.
However, once the German manager made the necessary changes, the Reds instantly responded and eventually won it 1-3 to keep ground on Man City at the top of the ladder. Sean Dyche’s men now share the rock-bottom of the standings with the likes of Southampton and Fulham.
These three teams sit lock at 9 points after 15 rounds of the competition. Can Clarets rebound from a horrendous thread on Saturday afternoon when they play host to Brighton & Hove Albion in a highly-important affair for both teams?
Burnley vs Brighton: Head-to-head
The draw was by far the most frequent of outcomes in the history of head to head games between these two sides.
As many as 10 of 20 H2H games ended without a winner. Teams snatched five wins apiece in remaining ten outings.
Each of last five head to head contests ended in draws.
Burnley vs Brighton: Prediction
Brighton will come into this in much higher spirits after producing one of the best performances of the season to dispatch Crystal Palace 3-1 at home in spite of playing with ten men for more than an hour.
The Seagulls thus broke into the top half of the standings with a thread of two wins and a draw in last three league games.
We thus have to see the value in backing the visitors not to lose at 1.45, while braver tipsters can try with the away win at 2.62.
Burnley vs Brighton: Bet Tips
Brighton Double Chance to win or Draw @ 1.45 (9/20) is the safe option
While brave punters can bank on the outright win for Brighton @ 2.62 (13/8).
