PREVIEW: BURNLEY V ALBION

26 April 2018

Kieran Cleeves
Albion will play Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday afternoon.

Brighton & Hove Albion come up against Burnley at Turf Moor this weekend, kick-off 3pm, as Chris Hughton’s team head into their final four Premier League matches of the season.

The Seagulls can move another step closer to Premier League survival with a positive result against the Clarets, before playing Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool in their remaining fixtures.

Hughton’s team drew 1-1 against Tottenham Hotspur last time out at the Amex Stadium, and will head to Turf Moor with confidence after taking five points from their last three visits to the Lancashire club.

The Clarets are without victory in their previous two matches, as they lost 2-1 to Chelsea before drawing 1-1 against Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium.


TEAM NEWS:

Chris Hughton confirmed there are no fresh injury concerns ahead of this weekend's game, with Davy Propper missing his final match of his three-game suspension.

For Burnley, Robbie Brady, Steven Defour and Scott Arfield are all expected to miss the game through injury.



REVERSE FIXTURE:

The spoils were shared when Burnley visited the Amex back in December, but Albion had the best chance to take all three points, after being awarded a penalty in the 35th minute.

But Glenn Murray fired over the crossbar from 12 yards, and despite Anthony Knockaert also hitting the post for the Seagulls, Hughton’s men were unable to find the goal they arguably deserved.

Albion enjoyed more of the possession on the south coast, but were unsuccessful in front of goal, as only two of their 11 shots were fired on target, as the Seagulls had to settle for a frustrating point.


FORM:

The Seagulls claimed a hard-earned point against Tottenham Hotspur at the Amex, as Hughton’s team produced a positive reaction to their 3-2 defeat at Crystal Palace.

April started with a frustrating 1-1 draw against Huddersfield Town on the south coast, which followed a 2-0 defeat to Leicester City, despite Albion enjoying plenty of the ball and missing a penalty.

Their last victory came against Arsenal at the beginning of March, as goals from Lewis Dunk and Glenn Murray fired the Seagulls to a 2-1 victory in front of over 30,000 supporters at the Amex.

The Clarets strung together five successive league victories throughout March and April, but Sean Dyche’s team are without a win in their previous two games against Chelsea and Stoke.

The Lancashire club recorded wins against Everton, West Ham United, West Bromwich Albion, Watford and Leicester City, as they climbed up the league table into seventh position.

ONE TO WATCH: Ashley Barnes

The former Albion striker has been in great form for the Clarets over recent months, scoring six goals in his previous eight Premier League matches - nine in total for the season.

Barnes has been a regular for Sean Dyche’s men this season, featuring in 34 of Burnley’s 35 Premier League matches - and the forward has formed a strong partnership with Chris Wood.

Albion supporters know all about Barnes, after his 53 goals in 170 appearances for the Seagulls between 2010 and 2014, and the striker will no doubt be a threat for Saturday's hosts.

  • Albion and Burnley share a goalless draw
  • Ashley Barnes and Kevin Long have the best chances of the game in the first half
  • The Seagulls move down one place into 14th
  • Gap between Albion and the bottom three is cut to five points

Brighton & Hove Albion claimed another point in their bid to secure Premier League survival, after a hard-fought goalless draw with Burnley at Turf Moor.

In a tense and nervy display with little in the way of clear-cut opportunities, the Seagulls moved up to 37 points for the season, but the gap between themselves and Southampton in 18th was cut to five points after their win over Bournemouth.

Chris Hughton made one change to the side that drew 1-1 with Tottenham Hotspur 11 days ago, as Leonardo Ulloa made his first Premier League start for the Seagulls and replaced Glenn Murray.

Albion worked their first opening when Lewis Dunk played a fine ball into the path of Anthony Knockaert, but the Frenchman’s cross was collected by Nick Pope with Ulloa waiting to pounce.

Burnley ventured forward for the first time through Ashley Westwood, who took advantage of some space on the edge of the area, and played an enticing through ball to Ashley Barnes, but the former Seagull failed to connect.

Down the other end, Johann Berg Gudmundsson intercepted Lewis Dunk’s cross-field pass, but saw his subsequent strike drift harmlessly wide of the far post.

Chances began to flow for both sides, as Bruno was picked out unmarked inside the box from a Pascal Gross corner, but the skipper fired wide with a close-range strike.

Albion managed to survive an intense goalmouth scramble, as Mathew Ryan and Gaetan Bong denied Barnes, before Kevin Long saw his effort hit the post before deflecting off Shane Duffy for a corner.

Despite the major scare, Hughton’s men continued to play some lovely free-flowing attacking football with further chances falling to Gross and Beram Kayal, but neither tested Nick Pope.

Brighton caught the Burnley defence napping in the first minute after the re-start when Gross was allowed to pick out Knockaert unmarked inside the box, but the winger’s cross flashed across the face of goal before going wide.

Gross had a chance himself moments later following some good link-up play with Jose Izquierdo, but his low strike was kept out by Pope at the near post.

There was a nervy moment for the Albion defence when Gudmundsson’s free kick drifted deep into the box before Ryan gathered the loose ball.

Bruno and Dunk then combined well to deny Ashley Westwood a shot at goal, before Westwood also saw his attempt blocked.

Hughton freshened up Albion’s attack by introducing Murray in place of Ulloa, and the former was involved in the thick of the action straight away when his shot was blocked for a corner.

The final 20 minutes saw both sides have some good possession of the ball without creating anything clear-cut, as the two teams shared the spoils.

ALBION: Ryan; Bruno (Schelotto 89), Dunk, Duffy, Bong; Knockaert, Stephens, Kayal, Izquierdo (March 85); Gross; Ulloa (Murray 67).

SUBS NOT USED: Krul (GK), Goldson, Suttner, Locadia.
