Team News: Burnley
Burnley manager Sean Dyche has zero fitness concerns at all ahead of this match thanks to a completely injury-free squad available for selection.
It looks as if The Clarets will possibly make use of the 4-4-2 system for this one with Nick Pope, Erik Pieters, James Tarkowski, Kevin Long, Phillip Bardsley, Dwight McNeil, Josh Brownhill, Ashley R. Westwood, Johann Berg Gudmundsson, Chris Wood and Jay Rodriguez.
Team News: Brighton
Owing to a fully healthy squad available to select from, Brighton boss Graham Potter does not have any fitness worries to speak of coming into this match.
There’s a good chance that The Seagulls will likely make use of a 4-3-2-1 lineup, choosing Matthew Ryan, Tariq Lamptey, Adam Webster, Lewis Dunk, Dan Burn, Yves Bissouma, Dale Stephens, Davy Pröpper, Aaron Mooy, Leandro Trossard and Neal Maupay.
We believe that Brighton have the capability to put a goal past this Burnley lineup, however that isn’t expected to be as many as the goals that they could concede.
We are anticipating a very close game with a 2-1 victory for Burnley at full-time. Looking forward to this.
