Brighton vs Burnley: Top free betting tips

Brighton will welcome Burnley to the Amex Stadium on Saturday afternoon in a match that could see the Seagulls move back inside the top six should results go their way. Our Brighton vs Burnley prediction is for an end-to-end and open match and for Brighton's quality to prove to be too much for the visitors.

Match handicap prediction: Brighton -1

After a dip in form last month, Brighton are looking close to their best again and were very impressive in their comeback victory against Brentford on Wednesday night. The Seagulls have lost just one of their last nine matches in all competitions while Burnley have lost eight of their last nine. This looks like a mismatch on paper and we expect Brighton to get the job done by a couple of goals.

Both teams to score prediction: Yes

Although Burnley's form has been dire all season, you can't accuse Vincent Kompany's side of not having a go in every game they've played. They scored five last weekend against Sheffield United which will surely have given their forwards some confidence and they were unlucky not to get a result against Wolves in midweek. Brighton, meanwhile, have only failed to score once in every match they've played this season.

Correct score prediction: Brighton 3-1 Burnley

Brighton's tails are up after winning four of their last six and at the Amex, they are a match for anyone never mind a side languishing in 19th place in the Premier League table. Burnley will give it a go, and we believe they'll get on the scoresheet but anything other than a comfortable home win would be a shock on Saturday.

Brighton predicted lineup vs Burnley

Brighton boss, Roberto de Zerbi, has had to deal with his fair share of injuries so far this season but he might be able to welcome back Adam Webster to the fold this weekend. In another boost to his selection woes, Lewis Dunk and Mahmoud Dahoud are also available for selection again with the pair returning from suspension. March, Enciso, Fai, Lamptey, Estupinna and Welbeck all remain out.

Steele – Veltman, Dunk, Igor, Gross – Baleba, Gilmour – Adingra, Pedro, Mitoma – Ferguson

Burnley predicted lineup vs Brighton

Vincent Kompany has Jordan Beyer to call on again for the match against Brighton after the defender completed his suspension against Wolves on Tuesday. One big blow to Kompany, however, is the loss of Luca Koleosho who went off injured in the first half this week. Gudmundsson is expected to play in place of the Italian.

Trafford – Vitinho, O'Shea, Beyer, Taylor – Gudmundsson, Berge, Larsen, Brownhill – Amdouni, Rodriguez
