Turf Moor, Burnley, England
Key Stat: Brighton are unbeaten in their last five matches in all competitions, conceding just one goal.
Expert Verdict: Burnley kicked on after winning at Anfield but have lost two tough matches – at Chelsea and at home to Manchester City – in their two most recent games. Brighton's own win against Liverpool came after some excellent form, meanwhile – they are unbeaten in five and are barely conceding which means they can snatch a result in this game too.
Resurgent Brighton travel to Turf Moor to take on a Burnley team who, like them, have won at Anfield in recent weeks. The match, between two teams looking to pull clear of the relegation places, takes place on February 6 and the match kicks off at 15:00 local time.
