FULL TIME. Burnley 1-2 Brighton and Hove Albion

FULL TIME. That is all from me. 

It's a tough one to take for the hosts, but the visitors will leave ecstatic with their win. 

Job done for the Seagulls, but it isn't that simple. 

They missed a target man for much of the game, until Maupay got a touch on Moder's cross. 

They were lucky to still be in it, but they took advantage of that and that's all they had to do. 

Burnley need more players, that is a fact. 

They looked tired towards the end pushing for the equaliser, and didn't have the talent to get back into it. 

Thank you for joining me today, a good game to start the season with and how fantastic to see the fans back in the ground.

I hope you all enjoyed my comments - if and when you see them - I will see you again soon!

Stay safe, and have a good night!

FULL TIME. Burnley 1-2 Brighton and Hove Albion

FULL TIME. What a comeback from Brighton, and what a set of substitutions from Graham Potter. 

It was all looking comfortable for the hosts, and they were made to pay for not taking their chances when they were ahead. 

A draw was probably a fair result, but Brighton took advantage of the momentum they had and ripped the points away from the Clarets. 

A happy trip up to Lancashire for the Seagulls, not such a happy return to Turf Moor for Burnley's fans. 

16:57a month ago

FULL TIME. Burnley 1-2 Brighton and Hove Albion

FULL TIME. Alexis Mac Allister is the hero for The Seagulls this afternoon, coming off the bench to fire home the winner. 

James Tarkowski scored the opener inside three minutes for Burnley and the hosts were cruising.

Substitutions changed the game for Brighton, Moder coming on to swing a ball in for Maupay to flick home.

Then Gross found himself in space on the left and he put the ball on a plate for the unmarked Mac Allister to slam home. 

1-2 is how it finished!

16:53a month ago

FULL TIME. Burnley 1-2 Brighton and Hove Albion

FULL TIME. ALL OVER AT TURF MOOR!
16:51a month ago

Burnley 1-2 Brighton and Hove Albion

90+3. It was nearly a third for Brighton!

Gross chips over Pope but Tarkowski is there to clear off the line. 

16:50a month ago

Burnley 1-2 Brighton and Hove Albion

90+1. Four added minutes at Turf Moor, can the Clarets get themselves back into it?
16:48a month ago

Burnley 1-2 Brighton and Hove Albion

87. Vydra whips the ball into the box looking for Barnes, Sanchez claims well after contact from the striker. 

Something has happened to Sanchez in the last 15 minutes!

He looks like a really safe pair of hands now. 

16:46a month ago

Burnley 1-2 Brighton and Hove Albion

86. Before the sub, Maupay absolutely lashed the ball into the stand to stop the game from restarting.

Sounds like timewasting, which is a yellow card.

Referee Coote gives nothing. 

Lifeline for the man who scored the equaliser. 

16:45a month ago

Burnley 1-2 Brighton and Hove Albion

85. Brownhill will probably move into the middle now, and Vydra will sit alongside Wood and Barnes up front. 

Five to go. 

16:44a month ago

Burnley 1-2 Brighton and Hove Albion

85. Burnley make their final change, probably a change in formation too.

Matej Vydra is on, Jack Cork is off.

16:42a month ago

Burnley 1-2 Brighton and Hove Albion

83. Burnley will be kicking themselves really.

They were in control for an hour of this game and, just as I said the game was slowing down, Brighton picked up. 

Graham Potter deserves huge credit here for his substitutions, they have changed the game. 

16:41a month ago

Burnley 1-2 Brighton and Hove Albion

80. Substitution for Burnley.

Dwight McNeil is replaced by Josh Brownhill.

16:40a month ago

Burnley 1-2 Brighton and Hove Albion

79. Similar to the equaliser, it is Gross this time who gets space down the left to cross. 

Alexis Mac Allister marches onto it inside the box and slams home.

Nobody followed him in and it has sent the travelling Seagulls fans wild!

16:37a month ago

GOAL!! MAC ALLISTER!

ALEXIS MAC ALLISTER COMPLETES THE TURNAROUND!
16:37a month ago

Burnley 1-1 Brighton and Hove Albion

77. Visitors in the ascendency now, Burnley should have taken some of those chances in the first half. 

Frustrating to concede for Burnley, great for The Seagulls!

16:35a month ago

Burnley 1-1 Brighton and Hove Albion

76. Final substitution for Brighton.

Alexis Mac Allister is on for Leandro Trossard. 

16:34a month ago

Burnley 1-1 Brighton and Hove Albion

73. Moder gets his cross in with his first touch.

Maupay is brave to get in front of Tarkowski and Mee and he flicks it home!

16:32a month ago

GOAL!! MAUPAY!

BRIGHTON HAVE THE EQUALISER!
16:32a month ago

Burnley 1-0 Brighton and Hove Albion

70. Wood sees one of his shots spin wide after a deflection for a corner. 

Sanchez does well to claim this one. 

Brighton substitution. 

Jakub Moder is on for Steven Alzate

16:30a month ago

Burnley 1-0 Brighton and Hove Albion

69. There has been a substitution for Burnley.

A change up front sees Jay Rodriguez replaced by Ashley Barnes. 

16:29a month ago

Burnley 1-0 Brighton and Hove Albion

65. 25 minutes to go and it is starting to slow down at Turf Moor. 

Burnley controlling the game now, but a Brighton goal would change that for sure. 

16:26a month ago

Burnley 1-0 Brighton and Hove Albion

63. The poor goalkeeping has spread to the other end ever so slightly. 

Pope kind of misreads the cross from March, he claims it out the sky and has a heart in mouth moment as it could have dropped over the line.

It didn't and the Clarets breathe a sigh of relief. 

16:23a month ago

Burnley 1-0 Brighton and Hove Albion

62. Burnley come forward now, it's Lowton down the right.

He fizzes a beautiful ball across the area but it evades everyone. 

16:18a month ago

Burnley 1-0 Brighton and Hove Albion

56. Brighton come forward through Trossard, but he floats his cross past the post. 

Wasteful again. 

16:14a month ago

Burnley 1-0 Brighton and Hove Albion

53. The plan has to be get the ball in the air around Sanchez. 

He flaps again at another cross but Tarkowski is under it and can't get a touch. 

Poor goalkeeping performance today.

16:11a month ago

Burnley 1-0 Brighton and Hove Albion

51. The free kick sails over the bar.

Waste of an opportunity to double the lead from Gudmundsson. 

16:10a month ago

Burnley 1-0 Brighton and Hove Albion

50. Free kick for Burnley, Taylor is tugged back on the edge of the box.

VAR checks for a penalty, it is very close.

To the left side of the box. 

16:07a month ago

Burnley 1-0 Brighton and Hove Albion

48. McNeil clears off the line again!

Adam Webster rises highest this time but the England Under 21 international is well placed to clear it away.

Promising start for the visitors. 

16:05a month ago

Burnley 1-0 Brighton and Hove Albion

46. We are back underway!

Can Burnley keep their noses in front, or will Brighton get themselves back into the game?

It was an attacking change by Graham Potter, so maybe...

16:04a month ago

Burnley 1-0 Brighton and Hove Albion

46. One change for the Brighton and Hove Albion at half time. 

Enock Mwepu's debut has come to an end, he is replaced by Adam Lallana. 

16:01a month ago

Chelsea 2-0 Crystal Palace (Alonso, Pulisic)

Everton 0-1 Southampton (Armstrong)

Leicester 1-0 Wolves (Vardy)

Manchester United 5-1 Leeds United FT (Fernandes x3, Greenwood, Fred; Ayling)

Watford 2-0 Aston Villa (Bonaventure, Sarr)

 

15:52a month ago

HALF TIME. Burnley 1-0 Brighton and Hove Albion

HALF TIME. Burnley have been much the better team here, they should be two goals ahead at the very least. 

Tarkowski's powerful header gave The Clarets the dream start after three minutes - despite a questionable push at the back post. 

Gudmundsson hit the post after 20 minutes, then Mee should have doubled the lead after Sanchez flapped at a corner but the captain hit the bar. 

Brighton have come close themselves, Maupay flashing a header past the post. 

See you for the second half.

15:48a month ago

HALF TIME. Burnley 1-0 Brighton and Hove Albion

HALF TIME. Burnley lead at the break through James Tarkowski's third minute header. 
15:47a month ago

Burnley 1-0 Brighton and Hove Albion

45+2. Burnley have been much the better team so far, the first half is petering out now.
15:46a month ago

Burnley 1-0 Brighton and Hove Albion

45+1. Three added minutes. 
15:45a month ago

Burnley 1-0 Brighton and Hove Albion

44. Mee fouls Maupay this time and isn't booked.

In comparison to the 'foul' from Tarkowski in the early minutes, that was a clear bookable offence that just wasn't given.

Confusing.

15:43a month ago

Burnley 1-0 Brighton and Hove Albion

40. Good chance here for Brighton this time. 

McNeil has to clear a header from the back post after a corner, didn't quite see who had the effort. 

Maupay heads wide just seconds later.

Best chance of the game for the visitors so far. 

15:39a month ago

Burnley 1-0 Brighton and Hove Albion

36. On second viewing, Tarkowski has to keep his volley down there, instead he's put it into the away fans. 

A striker would almost certainly do better there...

15:37a month ago

Burnley 1-0 Brighton and Hove Albion

36. Burnley have another corner themselves, and HAVE HIT THE BAR!

Ben Mee's header cannons off the bar from Westwood's delivery, and Tarkowski volleys wide

15:35a month ago

Burnley 1-0 Brighton and Hove Albion

34. No real chances to shout home about for Brighton so far.

They are getting forward though, they have a corner now. 

15:33a month ago

Burnley 1-0 Brighton and Hove Albion

30. Half an hour played, and Burnley go close again.

Wood is found by Westwood over the top, Rodriguez is set up by his strike partner and powers a shot towards goal.

Sanchez saves well, but Albion are struggling here. 

15:26a month ago

Burnley 1-0 Brighton and Hove Albion

26. Maupay gets his name taken by the referee, for a late tackle on Tarkowski.

Feisty start to this one!

15:24a month ago

Burnley 1-0 Brighton and Hove Albion

Elsewhere in the Premier League:

Chelsea 0-0 Crystal Palace

Everton 0-1 Southampton (Armstrong, 22)

Leicester 0-0 Wolves 

Watford 1-0 Aston Villa (Bonaventure, 10)

15:21a month ago

Burnley 1-0 Brighton and Hove Albion

20. Pair of chances for the hosts who should double their lead. 

Jack Cork skies an effort after Westwood was brought down and, just now, Gudmundsson hits the inside of the post.

Close to a second, Brighton are at sixes and sevens here. 

15:16a month ago

Burnley 1-0 Brighton and Hove Albion

15. Solly March takes the free kick but it bobbles all the way through to Nick Pope, who gathers graciously 
15:14a month ago

Burnley 1-0 Brighton and Hove Albion

13. This booking is a bit softer.

Goalscorer Tarkowski is booked after Neal Maupay runs into him!

Didn't go down well inside Turf Moor that one 

15:11a month ago

Burnley 1-0 Brighton and Hove Albion

10. Was quite a nasty follow through by Gudmundsson there

I would be a bit annoyed with that too, as Bissouma us

15:09a month ago

Burnley 1-0 Brighton and Hove Albion

9. Johann Berg Gudmundsson is booked for the hosts after a foul on Yves Bissouma. 

Was definitely a yellow card.

15:07a month ago

Burnley 1-0 Brighton and Hove Albion

7. There was some complaints from the visitors that Maupay had been fouled before the goal.

Nothing doing from the referee David Coote

15:03a month ago

Burnley 1-0 Brighton and Hove Albion

3. Burnley win an early corner and it is delightfully put into the box by Ashley Westwood for James Tarkowski to head home.

Great start to the season for the Clarets, they lead 1-0

15:02a month ago

GOAL!! TARKOWSKI

INSIDE TWO MINUTES AND JAMES TARKOWSKI HAS OPENED THE SCORING FOR BURNLEY!

15 minutes to go

The excitement is building at Turf Moor as we head towards kick-off, with a full Turf Moor ready to enjoy a great game of football

 

14:33a month ago

The visitors arriving earlier

14:32a month ago

Half an hour to kick-off

Clarets, Seagulls fans... only 30 minutes or so until you open your Premier League accounts for the season.

My prediction for today is a 1-1 draw.

Both teams are evenly matched. A lack of transfer activity at Turf Moor, a lack of quality striker at The AMEX, neither team are any better than last year which saw two draws. 

1-1 is the prediction.

14:24a month ago

Earlier in the day...

The first Premier League game of the day was a thoroughly entertaining one, and that's an understatement. 

Manchester United have blown Leeds United away at Old Trafford, it has finished 5-1 to The Reds.

Bruno Fernandes scored a hat-trick with Mason Greenwood and Fred also finding the net.

Luke Ayling's thunderbolt is only a consolation in the end. 

14:07a month ago

Mwepu makes debut for Albion

Enock Mwepu makes his first Premier League start for Brighton.

Steven Alzate gets a start in the opening game, as does Shane Duffy in defence.

The first Burnley team of the season sees Jay Rodriguez chosen to lead the line with Chris Wood.

Burnley vs Brighton: The Head to Head

Since 2017, when Brighton were promoted to the top-flight, they have faced each other eight times in the League with a whole host of draws.

Five in fact - three of which were 0-0.

Burnley hold two wins in the Premier League over their opponents, with Brighton claiming one win.

Both games last season finished a stalemate, including the 1-1 draw at Turf Moor in February – Lewis Dunk and Johann Berg Gudmundsson getting the goals.

Team News - Brighton and Hove Albion

Danny Welbeck and Tariq Lamptey head a five-strong list of players missing from the Seagulls trip up north this weekend.

Dan Burn, Moises Caicedo and Kjell Scherpen are also not available, but new signing Enock Mwepu could make his debut for Albion.

15:14a month ago

Team News - Burnley

A poor transfer window is becoming an all too familiar tale for Burnley fans to have to take, which has left the Lancashire side very thin on the ground ahead of the first game of the season.

Dale Stephens and Kevin Long are missing, but Nick Pope seems to have recovered from the knee injury that kept him out of the European Championships.

New signings Nathan Collins and Wayne Hennessey should take their place on the bench.

15:09a month ago

Optimism is key!

Both Burnley and Brighton will be looking for a great start to the season, as many predict a rough ride is ahead for The Clarets and Seagulls.

Even before a ball is kicked, this game is massive for their respective campaigns.

It is vital to get off to a good start but this is also a game both teams will feel like they should win.

However, it is obviously too early to call it a relegation six pointer…
