Burnley vs Brighton vs Leeds Predictions


Burnley are in good form at home with their only defeats coming against top six opponents. Brighton are in great form themselves so I can see this ending in a low scoring draw.

  • Burnley are unbeaten in 6 of their last 8 home matches (all competitions).
  • Burnley have seen under 2.5 goals in 6 of their last 8 home matches (all competitions).
  • Brighton are unbeaten in 5 of their last 6 away matches (all competitions).
  • Brighton have seen under 2.5 goals in their last 6 matches (Premier League).

Head to Head


Burnley hold a narrow 7-6 advantage over Brighton in their 25 matches. There have been 12 draws.

When they met earlier this season the match ended 0-0 at The Amex.

Burnley Form


Burnley are just a place above the relegation zone but are still eight points clear of those below them. They go into this fixture off the back of two defeats, but they did win their three matches prior to that.

The Clarets began their three-match winning run with an incredible 1-0 victory at Anfield. They were the first team to win a Premier League match at Anfield in 68 matches.

That was followed by a 3-0 FA Cup win at Fulham before returning to the league action with a 3-2 home win against Aston Vila.

Sean Dyche’s charges lost their subsequent two matches, 2-0 at Chelsea and 2-0 at home to Manchester City. Considering the opposition, it was never matches Burnley were expecting to win.

Burnley Injuries & Team News


There are doubts over forwards, Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes, left-back Charlie Taylor and Josh Brownhill ahead of this clash.

Taylor and Barnes were almost fit for the Manchester City match so they are both likely to play some part in this match. Robbie Brady should recover from his knock to start. 

Brighton Form


Brighton have played some superb football this season without getting the results they perhaps deserved. That left them flirting with relegation but two wins in their last two fixtures has pushed them up to 15th on the table.

Graham Potter has suddenly started getting results for Brighton with only one defeat in their last eight matches. That defeat came against Manchester City where they went down 1-0 away.

Since then Brighton have beaten Leeds 1-0 away, Blackpool 2-1 at home in the FA Cup and drawn 0-0 at home against Fulham.

Their last two matches have however been the most impressive. A 1-0 victory at home to Tottenham at the weekend was followed by a 1-0 win at the champions, Liverpool in mid-week. Steven Alzate scored the winner in a very impressive Brighton performance.

Brighton Injuries & Team News


Central midfielder, Alexis MacAllister is expected to be fit after missing the victory over Liverpool.

There are concerns for Graham Potter at right-back. Tariq Lamptey and Joel Veltman are both injured. Solly March went off injured against Liverpool and faces time on the sidelines.

Forward Danny Welbeck remains injured and unavailable for this encounter.
