After keeping a clean sheet in six of their opening nine home league games this season, the Clarets have conceded in each of their last eight at Turf Moor. Only Bournemouth (12) are on a longer run without a home clean sheet in the Premier League.

Sean Dyche won his first managerial meeting with Brighton in November 2011 when he was Watford manager but has failed to win any of his subsequent seven against them (D5 L2).
Dyche has only faced Spurs more as Burnley manager without winning (eight games) than he has against Brighton (6).
Chris Wood has netted five goals in 11 league games against Brighton – only against Huddersfield (6) has he scored more in English league football.
Ashley Barnes has scored in six of his last eight Premier League games, with his leveller at Stoke last time out seeing him become the first Burnley player to score 20 Premier League goals.
Glenn Murray is the highest scoring Premier League player who’s yet to assist a goal this season (12 goals). It’s the most in a single top-flight campaign since Demba Ba in 2012-13 (15).
