Burnley – Brighton: Two sides with wins away to defending Premier League champions Liverpool — not to mention, waning relegation fears — are set for battle at Turf Moor on Saturday (Watch live at 10 am am ET, on Peacock Premium).
Brighton head into the weekend fresh off their Anfield triumph, courtesy of Steven Alzate’s second-half winner, with 10 points between themselves and 18th-place Fulham. Graham Potter and Co., are finally reaping the rewards of a half-season of impressive performances where the results simply didn’t match. With three wins from their current four-game unbeaten run, Brighton haven’t conceded a goal since losing 1-0 to Manchester City three weeks ago.
Burnley, on the other hand, beat Liverpool and Aston Villa in back-to-back games two weeks ago, but were more recently beaten by Man City and Chelsea. With 17 games left to play, the Clarets sit 17th in the table with an eight-point cushion above the relegation zone.
