Two teams struggling to find recent victories will face-off at Turf Moor on Saturday as Brighton travel to Burnley in the Premier League.

Burnley are currently six points adrift of safety in the relegation zone and seem doomed for the drop, but Vincent Kompany will ensure they battle until the very end, starting with Brighton.

Roberto De Zerbi's men are comfortably sat in 10th, but still hold aspirations of qualifying for Europe again, should they put together a good run between now and the end of the season.

Here's how the Burnley and Brighton squads shape up ahead of the game.

Burnley Team News and predicted XI

Aaron Ramsey, Nathan Redmond, Luca Koleosho, Jordan Beyer, Ameen Al-Dakhil and Han-Noah Massengo are all definitely missing for Burnley due to injury, while Dara O'Shea is suspended following his red card in the loss against Everton.

Hannes Delcroix is his likely replacement in the backline.

With a long list of injury problems, Kompany doesn't have the luxury of making a raft of changes, so expect a similar XI to that which started the Everton game with the exception of O'Shea.

James Trafford has been out with illness so could return, though it depends on how much he's recovered ahead of Saturday.

Burnley (4-3-3): Muric; Assignon, Delcroix, Esteve, Taylor; Foster, Cullen, Berge, Larsen; Odobert, Fofana.

Brighton Team News and predicted XI

De Zerbi is without Solly March, Jack Hinshelwood, Kaoru Mitoma, Billy Gilmour and James Milner for this one, while Adam Webster and Evan Ferguson are struggling for fitness.

Jakub Moder and Julio Enciso didn't have the best games in the 3-0 loss versus Arsenal, so Joao Pedro and Facundo Buonanotte might be preferred after they were brought on as substitutes in that game.

Brighton (4-2-3-1): Verbruggen; Lamptey, Van Hecke, Dunk, Estupinan; Gross, Baleba; Adingra, Joao Pedro, Buonanotte; Welbeck.
