The Clarets thoroughly deserved the points on the night which takes them off the foot of the Premier League table and leaves The Seagulls hovering in mid table.
Wout Weghorst is the man
Many people thought when Chris Wood departed to Newcastle, Burnley may have been in trouble. How they have been proved wrong.
Wout Weghorst's arrival from Wolfsburg has certainly been seen as an upgrade by the Burnley faithful and his performance at The Amex epitomises that.
The 6ft 6 inch giant has been a revelation since his arrival from Germany but a goal and two assists has proved excellent value for money.
The Dutch international has settled into Burnley's system almost immediately and got his deserved first goal for the club with a stunning strike showing his Champions League experience and his superb ability with his feet.
Aaron Lennon revitalising his career
He made his 400th Premier League appearance last time out against Liverpool and his emergence back in the side is having the impact of a new signing.
Lennon was superb down the Burnley righthand side today and marked appearance number 401 with a super strike after great build up from Jay Rodriguez.
After he made his return to the side against Manchester United in the New Year, he has been without question one of the surprises of Burnley's season and making himself a first team regular.
Burnley heading in the right direction
After the second half of the draw against Manchester United, we have seen somewhat of a new team or should way say more of the old Burnley.
High pressing, creativity and defensive solidity are all things of the Burnley of old and the last two and half games we have seen that Burnley return.
Saying Burnley didn't deserve all three points would be a lie as The Clarets were superb on a happy hunting ground for them and should they are fighting to the very end.
Saturday's victory showed that there is still a big mountain to climb but performances like that will give Sean Dyche lots of confidence and give Burnley supporters reason to be optimistic that they are in a fight but they are well up for it.
Seagulls all at Sea
Brighton have been one of the sides this season who have surprised many and rightly so but today's performance was one of their worsts.
They didn't really threaten Nick Pope's goal with Adam Lallana's first half header being their best chance and defensively inept against Burnley's front four at times.
The only real shining light for Brighton was the performance of Tariq Lamptey who caused Burnley problems down the right with his overlapping runs and wicked delivery.
Brighton were in disarray defensively and were clearly missing the impact of captain Lewis Dunk as the homegrown hero was sent off last time out at Old Trafford.
Graham Potter will be disappointed with his side's performance on the day as the Brighton we have come to know of were all at sea today and rarely threatened the relegation strugglers.
Brighton will be looking for a response next time out against Aston Villa at The Amex whereas Burnley will look to carry their momentum at home to Tottenham in midweek and away to Crystal Palace at the weekend.
