Brighton & Hove Albion vs BurnleyEnglish Premier League, KO: 15:00 Feb 19, 2022, The Amex Stadium
After losing at Old Trafford, Brighton & Hove Albion host troubled Burnley on Saturday in the English Premier League. The visitors have been poor on the road making the Seagulls favourites to come out on top at the Amex Stadium.
Brighton & Hove Albion head into Saturday’s clash off the back of a 2-0 defeat at Manchester United in their previous Premier League fixture. They were second best for much of the contest with the red card to defender Lewis Dunk proving to be a turning point.
The Seagulls have been the draw experts in recent weeks and will feel they could be challenging further up the table by turning some of those results into wins. They have been held in their last two home matches in the Premier League.
All of this means Brighton have suffered just one defeat in their last eight Premier League matches. They have claimed some impressive victories in that run, beating Brentford and Everton and will be looking to build on the 2-0 victory over Watford prior to the defeat at Old Trafford.
Burnley are now rooted to the bottom of the table but are not doomed for relegation just yet. They have played two games less than most of the teams around them fighting to stay in the league.
The problem for Burnley is that they are showing little survival instincts and travel to Brighton winless in their last 11 Premier League matches. They suffered a 1-0 home defeat to Liverpool in their previous fixture.
Things are even worse for Brighton on their travels as they have failed to win a single match away from home this season. Sean Dyche’s men have suffered three defeats in their last four Premier League matches on the road.
