Burnley vs

Burnley and Brighton go head to head on on the first day of the new season, with two points separating the sides last season.


Finishing one place above relegation last season, is how Burnley will have wanted the season to go. At one point they looked like they could go down, but confirmed safety with three games to go.

Burnley being in the Premier League is a huge achievement. This is their sixth consecutive season and Dyche will just want his side to stay up this season, but maybe not leave it so late!

Dyche’s side are a very physical side who know how to play ugly. They will look to make it tough against Brighton and utilise the height they have via set-pieces.


Brighton‘s overall finish of 16th place didn’t reflect the football they placed last season. Manager Graham Potter got his side playing very well but just lacked a goal scorer.

The Seagulls should be doing better than 16th and if they can bring in a good striker they could push for more of a mid-table finish.

It’ll be hard to break down a well-organised Burnely side but Brighton will go to Turf Moor and have a go.
