Burnley v Brighton Premier League Preview, 8th December 3.00pm
This should be an interesting clash at Turf Moor. Things just haven’t been happening for the Clarets so far this term and haven’t been able to build up a head of steam on home soil. The Seagulls have had a really good season, picking up some great points to not be sitting with any relegation concerns at the moment. Read our Burnley v Brighton betting tips for more.

Burnley News and Form
The Clarets suffered another defeat as they blew a lead at home against Liverpool on Wednesday to suffer a 3-1 reverse. That was Burnley’s third league defeat on the bounce now. In total, they have produced only the two points in their last seven league games and the Clarets have failed to hit the back of the net in four of their last seven. Their home form is just W1 D1 L5 at Turf Moor this season. They have lost their last three league games at Turf Moor and have gone without a win in four there. Burnley have conceded at least two goals in each of their last three home games
In total they have produced 8 goals at home this term, conceding 15 and their defence has been their big downfall this season. 71% of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals so far this term and actually, 57% of games at Tuf Moor have seen at least four goals. A lot of that has been down to how poor Burnley’s defence has been. They only have the one home clean sheet this season and they have the worst home record in this season’s top flight. Only Fulham have conceded more league goals than Burnley have this season overall.

Brighton News and Form
Brighton picked up three points in midweek as they took down Crystal Palace 3-1 at the Amex. That is back to back league wins for Brighton now and they well away from the drop zone. They also managed to take a win in their last away game, a 2-1 victory out at Huddersfield in a very good result for them. Away from home, this season in the top flight Brighton have posted a W2 D1 L5 record so far. They have come up with seven away goals, conceding 13 in total. One huge positive for Brighton is that they have scored in each of their last eight league games home and away combined.
The Seagulls haven’t managed to take a clean sheet in any of their last five games though and 50% of their away games have ended under 2.5 goals. Their last three games on the road have each produced at least three goals. In total, Brighton have come up with just the one away clean sheet and they have actually conceded in both halves of 62% of their away games. Four times this season on their travels in the top flight, Brighton have been losing at half time. A good three points in this one would see them strengthen their position in the top half of the table.
