Brighton host Burnley on Saturday in the Premier League looking to jump up to eighth.

The Seagulls had been in fine league form before their 2-0 defeat to Manchester United, where Lewis Dunk's contentious red card swung the game in United's favour.

They host a Burnley side with just one win all season and rooted to the bottom of the table.


Brighton predicted lineup vs Burnley

1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Robert Sanchez (GK) - With seven league clean sheets so far this season, Sanchez is Brighton's undisputed number one.

Joel Veltman (CB) - Capable of playing at right back or shuffling into a back three, Veltman's versatility has been a major plus point since signing for the club in 2020.

Shane Duffy (CB) - With Dunk out through suspension, Graham Potter may include Irishman Duffy in his starting XI. Brings a big threat from set-pieces.

Adam Webster (CB) - Recently impressed with an awesome display against Chelsea, scoring the equaliser and displaying his passing range.


2. Wing backs & midfielders

Tariq Lamptey (RWB) - Started the loss at Old Trafford on the bench and should come back into the side. Is an electric presence on the right.

Yves Bissouma (CM) - Arguably Brighton's most important midfielder, Bissouma brings composure and class to the middle of the park.

Adam Lallana (CM) - The former Liverpool man's quick feet and sharp passing make him an important cog in Potter's Brighton machine.

Marc Cucurella (LWB) - An unmistakable figure on the left, Cucurella has been a solid acquisition for the Seagulls.


3. Forwards

Alexis Mac Allister (RF) - Mac Allister is becoming more of a goal threat. He only managed one league goal last season but has four already this term.

Neal Maupay (ST) - The Frenchman didn't get much of a sniff at United in midweek, managing only 23 touches and one shot, but he remains Brighton's leading league goalscorer this season with eight strikes.

Leandro Trossard (LF) - One of Brighton's most creative outlets, Trossard likes to drift infield and take shots on from range. Has four league goals this season.
