PREVIEW: Brighton v Burnley

Build-up ahead of the big game at the Amex Stadium as Clarets return to action

13 September 2019

The Clarets resume Premier League action with a trip to the south coast and the chance to seek a first away win of the season.

Sean Dyche’s men picked up a point at Wolves last time out on the road ahead of the international break and will be looking to turn that into three at a ground they have enjoyed visiting in recent seasons.

Burnley haven’t lost at the Amex Stadium in their last four trips, picking up a famous point with Michael Keane’s last-gasp equaliser in the 2016 Championship promotion race before earning a Premier League draw in 2017 and a vital 3-1 win last season.

Brighton old boys Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood shared the goals on a rainy evening in February as the Clarets continued the eight-match unbeaten run that propelled them to safety.

The win at Brighton was game number seven and set a new club record at Premier League level as Wood struck twice and Barnes scored from the penalty spot to seal the victory.

The duo had previously scored goals together for Brighton – helping Gus Poyet’s side win the First Division title in 2011.

Both clubs have come a long way since, with Brighton starting a third successive top-flight campaign under new boss Graham Potter.

Barnes and Wood are both established Premier League strikers and leading scorer Barnes – who has bagged four goals in four games – is relishing the prospect of another return to a club where he made his name before scaling new heights with the Clarets following his arrival in 2013.

“I love playing at the stadium. I’ve got many fond memories of my time there and I still speak to many of the staff and a few of the players, so it will be brilliant to come back,” Barnes told Brighton’s club website.

“I knew that I had to make a good start to the new season because everyone comes back feeling stronger and fitter. I did a lot of hard work in the off season, which helped me get ready for pre-season.

“I feel like I’m getting better every time I’m selected and that I’m improving in each season. To get 12 goals last year was great, but I want to do even better now. I feel like I’m coming to the best period of my career and I’ve still got a lot to give.”

Team news

The Clarets will check on winger Johan Berg Gudmundsson, who is recovering from a calf injury which forced him to miss the defeat to Liverpool ahead of the international break.

However, Dwight McNeil is fit after missing England Under-21 duty, while fellow wideman Robbie Brady could figure for the first time this season after recovering from a rib injury.

Danny Drinkwater is facing a few weeks on the sidelines with an ankle problem.

Brighton will be without summer signing Leandro Trossard after the frontman – Brighton’s only scorer in their last three league games – was injured on international duty with Belgium.

Italian defender Ezequiel Schelotto could figure for the first time this season but defender Yves Bissouma and forward Jose Izquierdo are both still out.

Form guide

Both sides go into the game with four points accrued from their opening four Premier League fixtures.

The Clarets lost their opening away fixture at Arsenal before claiming a point at Wolves in their last away outing.

Brighton made a flying start with a 3-0 win at Watford on the opening day before a home draw with West Ham next time out.

The Seagulls have since lost back-to-back Premier League games – although won at Bristol Rovers to advance in the League Cup.

Opposition camp

Brighton manager Graham Potter: “I’m expecting a tough game against a side who I really like, they’re very good at what they do and have a good balance between defence and attack.

“They create chances and defend well, they can mix their game up and use their strengths in a good way to create chances.

“We need to be really focused and do our work as well as we can, it’s a game we’re looking forward to after this break and it’s good to be back in league action.”

Match stats

The Clarets are unbeaten in their last seven games against Brighton and haven’t lost to the Seagulls in the Premier League in four meetings.

Five of the last seven games between the two have been draws.

The Seagulls have won just two of their last 16 games in all competitions.

Brighton have gone seven games without a home league win. One more would equal their record for a longest home run in the top flight set in 1982/83.

Brighton 1 Burnley 1

Stunning late goal from Hendrick earns Clarets valuable point

14 September 2019

Jeff Hendrick marked his 100th Premier League appearance in stunning style to rescue a point for the Clarets with a dramatic late equaliser.

Burnley’s impressive recent record against Brighton was only moments away from coming to an end thanks to Neil Maupay’s opener early in the second half.

But substitute Hendrick made sure the Clarets would make it eight unbeaten against the Seagulls when he crashed in an injury-time equaliser with a magnificent 25-yard strike.

It was the Clarets’ only effort on target in a game where they struggled to make any sort of sustained impact.

But once again their ability to stay in the hunt proved priceless as Hendrick came up trumps with his eighth league goal for the Clarets to complete a memorable couple of weeks for the midfielder, who won his 50th cap for Ireland at the start of the month and is now a member of the ‘100 Club’ at Turf Moor.

The Clarets were unchanged from the side that had lost to Liverpool ahead of the international break, with Dwight McNeil recovered from the tightness in his hamstring which had prevented him from linking up with England’s Under-21s for the first time.

And it was McNeil who looked the most likely source of a break-through for the Clarets in a slow burner of a first half which developed into a real scrap in the sun.

Twice in the Clarets’ best spell of the opening 45 minutes McNeil delivered dangerous balls from the left wing which almost produced an own-goal from Adam Webster and then a shooting chance for Jack Cork, who controlled a downward header from James Tarkowski before steering an effort just beyond Chris Wood at the far post.

Burnley looked to be gaining the initiative at that stage but Brighton – a physically imposing side with four centre-backs scattered across their line-up – negated that to finish strongly before the break.

With the massive figure of Dan Burn on one flank, the home side often looked to Solly March on the opposite side to provide their thrust and he forced Nick Pope into a smart save low down at his near post to keep the scores level.

And with Glenn Murray twice going close, with a header that skidded wide and a shot which Pope also saved, the Clarets were glad of the chance to re-group.

Anything said didn’t immediately alter the flow, however, and six minutes into the second half Brighton went in front.

Maupay had been denied once by Pope as he raced clear but seized his second opportunity when March clipped over a cross which the former Brentford striker met on the volley with an assured finish into the bottom corner to give him his second Premier League goal.

Wood chance PA.jpg

The Clarets made a change with Hendrick replacing Aaron Lennon and there was a chance to level when Ashley Westwood connected with a volley which would have been diverted goalwards by a slightly stronger touch from the outstretched leg of Wood as the former Brighton man reacted as quickly as he could.

That was Wood’s final contribution as Jay Rodriguez was introduced to try and add some threat, followed by Matej Vydra as the Clarets desperately tried to get something going in the final stages with a switch to a 4-3-3 formation.

And Vydra played a big part as the Clarets suddenly pinched an equaliser from nowhere at the end of their best move of the game.

The striker - one of half a dozen Clarets to be involved - cleverly laid the ball into the path of Hendrick and the Dubliner kept his head down to drive a superb shot skidding into the bottom corner from 25 yards to get his 100 up in style and deny Brighton a first win since the opening day.

It is also brought the Clarets their second point on the road and brought some compensation for the late equaliser they suffered at Wolves in a welcome case of role reversal to claim 14th place in the table.
