Our tipster is anticipating a low-scoring contest when the Seagulls face the Clarets in a crucial clash on the south coast on Saturday evening

Brighton play host to Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday evening. 

The Seagulls have won just one of their last 10 matches in this competition but did reach the FA Cup fifth round in midweek, squeezing past West Brom in extra time.

Burnley come into the weekend just two points clear of the relegation zone. The Clarets, though, are unbeaten in their last six league matches and so will be confident of claiming a positive result when they visit Amex Stadium.

Latest odds

SportPesa make Brighton an 11/10 (2.10) shot to pick up all three points on the south coast whilst Burnley can be backed at 57/20 (3.85) to bag a vital victory.

The same firm go 9/4 (3.25) that these two teams are forced to settle for a share of the spoils.

Team news

Despite a return to training, Jose Izquierdo is unlikely to feature for the Seagulls. Dale Stephens will be assessed following a hip knock.

For Burnley, Matt Lowton is back in training, but Steven Defour and Aaron Lennon are out. Peter Crouch is pushing for a starting berth after impressing as a second half substitute against Southampton at St Mary's.

Goals at a premium?

Brighton have failed to find the net in their last three fixtures at Amex Stadium and there have been goals at both ends in just one of the Seagulls' last five home matches.

SportPesa offer just 4/7 (1.57) that there are fewer than three goals in this game whilst it is 5/7 (1.71) that either side fails to find the net on Saturday evening.

Prediction

Better value, though, could lie in backing SportPesa's 17/10 (2.70) quote for fewer than two goals to be scored in this game.

The selection would have landed in the previous three Premier League matches between these teams and in each of the last four fixtures contested at Amex Stadium.
