Match: Burnley vs Brighton & Hove Albion
Competition: Premier League
Date: February 6, 2021
Kick-off time: 3:00 pm, February 6, 2021 (UK time)
Stadium: Turf Moor
Betting prediction: Burnley 0-0 Brighton
Brighton’s credible run of form – which sees them unbeaten (3-1-0) in their last four Premier League outings – has been just what the doctor ordered for Graham Potter. But unfortunately, goals are still a premium for the Seagulls.
Coming up against a Burnley side who are still capable at sitting deep and frustrating their opponent, it’s hard to see many goals in this one. If any at all.
Burnley vs Brighton: Recommended bets
Full-Time Result: Draw
Sometimes the obvious bet is not so obvious, but both Brighton and Burnley really do struggle to threaten in the final third with any regularity. Brighton could be happy to end up with a point to continue their unbeaten run, while any point haul for Burnley is a positive.
Under 2.5 Goals
This bet speaks for itself. Even if goals were found at Turf Moor, only one match of Burnley’s last six has featured more than two goals. The same can be said for Brighton.

Burnley vs Brighton: Match preview
Burnley come into their weekend fixture against Brighton as a side who are looking for points. Any points. After a mini-spell that saw them win two on the bounce against Aston Villa (3-2), and a shock result at Anfield against Liverpool (1-0), Sean Dyche has pushed his Clarets clear of the relegation fight by eight points.
But things have fallen back down to earth rapidly in the wake of their purple patch, with expected losses against Chelsea and Manchester City (by the same 2-0 scoreline) coming over a 72-hour period. To their credit, it has been a nightmarish last six on the fixture list for Burnley. City, Chelsea, Villa, and Liverpool have added two showdowns with West Ham and Manchester United. All told, a record of 2-0-4 at its conclusion is probably far better than anyone predicted, an opinion shared by the club’s new chairman Alan Pace.
Dyche resides on the touchline of a side who – while being anemic in the final third – are still capable of frustrating even the very best on their day. This is reflected by the Liverpool result perfectly. Targeting point-collection against a Brighton outfit that struggle for goals in their own right is hardly a far-fetched possibility. All that is needed for Burnley is a platform able to withstand the rest of the season and fend-off any sort of tailspin down into the relegation zone. It may not be pretty, but it could be enough come the end of term.
In-form Brighton looking to grow in confidence and climb up the table
Three wins during a six-match run where Brighton have tasted defeat just once (1-0 against Manchester City) is just the tonic for Graham Potter. The crown jewel of the Seagulls’ up-tick in form – which sees them into the top six in the form table, with one of the best defensive records in the Premier League during that period – was their shock-win at Anfield against Liverpool.
With Brighton, you know what you get most of the time. Capable on their day to frustrate every single opponent they square-off against, it’s perhaps frustrating in equal measure at their inability to find just a bit more to help themselves claw their way up the league ladder. Of the fourteen-times Brighton have taken at least a point off their opposition, they only managed to bag more than a single goal on four occasions. It is interesting to note just how more difficult an opponent the Seagulls could be if they added goals (and creativity) to their game, but it stands to reason that the job Graham Potter has done on the south coast of England.
Their clash with Burnley presents a tricky fixture however, and will require Brighton to be more expansive rather than the side happy to surrender position like when they play tougher opposition. But regardless of the nature of the tie, they have the best form of any side sitting in the bottom-half of the Premier League table; a fact that Potter will do well to hammer-home as motivation to take it one result at a time. That starts at Turf Moor, and upcoming fixtures against Crystal Palace and West Bromwich Albion could offer further points on the table.
Burnley team news vs Brighton
Sean Dyche has no guaranteed selection headaches going into a tricky date with Brighton.
Question marks surround the availability of Ashley Barnes, Robbie Brady, Chris Wood, Charlie Taylor, and Josh Brownhill, though there is a good chance Taylor and Barnes could return.
Brighton team news vs Burnley
Graham Potter remains weighed-down by selection problems. José Izquierdo, Alireza Jahanbakhsh, Florin Andone, Tariq Lamptey, Danny Welbeck, and now Solly March are all guaranteed to be unavailable for the weekend.
Joël Veltman has a slight outside chance of returning, while Alexis Mac Allister could make it back in time.
