Key battle

GLENN Murray has been among the goals for Brighton this season, with eight in 15 Premier League matches. Keeping the target man quiet, should he be passed fit to play, will be key for the Clarets and captain Ben Mee.

Last meeting

THE two sides shared the spoils in a 0-0 draw at Turf Moor in April, just as they had done in the Amex Stadium clash earlier in the season. Indeed the last five games between the sides have ended all square.

Man in the middle

Martin Atkinson - Has shown 42 yellow cards and one red in his 13 matches so far this season. His last Burnley match was the 2-1 win at Cardiff in September, and the Clarets are unbeaten in their last five matches Atkinson has taken charge of.

Predicted teams

BURNLEY: Joe Hart; Phil Bardsley, James Tarkowski, Ben Mee, Charlie Taylor; Robbie Brady, Ashley Westwood, Jack Cork, Johann Berg Gudmundsson; Chris Wood, Ashley Barnes

BRIGHTON: Matt Ryan, Bruno, Shane Duffy, Lewis Dunk, Bernardo, Pascal Groß, Davy Pröpper, Yves Bissouma, Solly March, Glenn Murray, Jose Izquierdo

What are the odds?

THE bookies make the visitors favourites at 6/4 while the Clarets are 2/1 to take a much-needed three points. The draw is also 2/1.
