Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Burnley will be aiming to make amends for a 2-0 loss to Man City when they take on Brighton in the Premier League round 23. The Clarets have been having a tough fixture list, but they are surely capable of matching the Seagulls at home ground. Both Brady and Wood are likely to miss the game with injuries, while Barnes and Brownhill are both rated doubtful for the game.
Brighton, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Tottenham and Liverpool, with the team eyeing their fifth consecutive clean sheet in the English top flight. Since Burnley have been struggling in front of goal of late, we believe that punters can find value in betting on under 2.5 goals. The likes of Lamptey, Jahanbakhsh, and Welbeck are all out of contention with injuries. In the first half of the season the two teams played out a goalless draw at Amex Stadium.
Highlighted Player (Robbie Brady):
Robbie Brady is an Irish footballer who plays for Norwich City as a winger, but he is capable of playing at left back as well. Brady began his youth career at St. Kevin’s Boys, where he was spotted by Manchester United scouts. In 2008 he joined the Old Trafford outfit at age 16.
He played for Manchester United U-18 team, but he did not make his debut for the senior team. The Irish footballer played for Hull City on loan in the 2011/2012 and the 2012/2013 Championship campaigns and in January, 2013 he signed a permanent deal with the Tigers for an undisclosed fee. Robbie Brady made his Republic of Ireland debut on 8 September, 2012, in a 4-1 win over Oman and it has to be noted that he scored one goal and provided two assists for his teammates in the victory over the Asian team.
He represented the Boys in Green at the 2016 European Championship finals and he scored the winner against Italy that helped the team make it to the knockout stages of the showpiece tournament.
Highlighted Team (Brighton):
Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club were formed in 1901. The Seagulls welcome their opponents at Falmer Stadium and the capacity of Brighton’s home ground is 30,750. The stadium was built in 2008 and it was opened in 2011. The venue is known for commercial purposes as American Express Community Stadium.
Brighton & Hove Albion compete in the Premier League and they play in blue and white stripes. The colour of Brighton’s away kit is green. The club made it to the FA Cup final in 1983, but English giants Manchester United proved to be a big catch for the Red Devils.
Brighton’s main rivals are Crystal Palace and the Seagulls have recorded 35 wins over the Eagles. Frank Stapleton, Martin Chivers, Joe Corrigan, Bobby Zamora, Mark Lawrenson, Bobby Smith, John Crumplin and Frank Worthington are notable footballers who played for Brighton in the past. The Albion is Preston’s yet another nickname.
