Burnley comes unmotivated for this match after losing 0-2, against Manchester City, registering the second setback in this Premier League. In this game against Brighton, the coach Sean Dyche must maintain his standard tactical system, the 4-4-2, privileging the maintenance of the ball possession and the attacks organized by the flanks, however, in some moments of the match he must act in a more directly. Striker Chris Wood is the highlight of this team, being this athlete the best scorer with 4 goals scored. In doubt for this game are Ashley Barnes, Josh Brownhill, Charlie Taylor and Robbie Brady, all with physical problems.

In this round against Burnley, coach Graham Potter should choose a more cautious strategy, looking for spaces to counterattack. Midfielder Yves Bissouma is one of the most important players in this team’s tactical scheme, and this athlete is responsible for the offensive process. For this match the visiting coach cannot count on Tariq Lamptey, Alireza Jahanbakhsh and Florin Andone, all injured, and still have doubts on Danny Welbeck, Jason Steele, Solly March, Jose Izquierdo, Davy Propper, Joel Veltman and Alexis Mac Allister.
