Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Brighton will be looking to bounce back from a loss to Tottenham when they host Burnley at their Amex Stadium on day 8 of the new Premier League campaign. The Seagulls aim to put an end to their four-game winless run in the elite competition, and it seems as if they will not have a better chance than this to do so. Since Brighton are only four points clear of the relegation zone, we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Burnley on Matchday 8.
The Clarets, on the other hand, made a slow start to the season, with the team collecting only one point from possible 18. Burnley experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-0 loss to Chelsea; therefore, we believe that the time has come for the Seagulls to get back on course in the EPL.
Highlighted Player (Davy Pröpper):
Born in Arnhem, Netherlands on September 2, 1991, Davy Propper is a Dutch footballer who plays for Brighton in the Premier League as a midfielder. Propper is a product of Vitesse football school and you should know that he scored 18 goals in 142 appearances for his hometown club in the Eredivisie.
After ending his spell with Vitesse, Davy Propper joined fellow Dutch side PSV where he scored 16 goals in 67 appearances in the national championship. In 2017 the Dutch footballer decided to take a step forward in his career as he signed a deal with the Seagulls.
Davy Propper has established himself as a first-team regular at Brighton and, to make things even better for him, he represented Netherlands in the UEFA Nations League. His main position is central midfield, but he is capable of playing as both attacking and defensive midfielder as well. Davy Propper made his senior debut for the Dutch national football team on June 5, 2015 against USA, replacing captain Robin van Persie in the 57th minute.
Highlighted Team (Burnley):
Burnley were one of the founding members of the Football League back in 1888. The Clarets did remarkably well to win the FA Cup trophy back in 1914 and the club owners have been trying to bring glory days back to Turf Moor ever since.
Burnley defeated Liverpool in the 1913/1914 FA Cup final and, no doubt, this is regarded as the greatest achievement in the club’s history. The Clarets finished the 2015/2016 Championship campaign in top position in the standings and, as a result, they will participate in the English Premier League in the 2016/2017 season.
Burnley play their home games at Turf Moor and the capacity of the stadium is 21,401. The Clarets have won two Community Shield trophies so far, in 1960 and 1973, but they have yet to clinch the Premier League title. Claret is the dominant colour of the team’s home shirts.
