Brighton couldn’t find a way through Burnley | Catherine Ivill/Getty ImagesBrighton showed real attacking desire but were forced to settle for a point against a Burnley side who never really looked like scoring on Friday evening.The opening four minutes saw Tariq Lamptey sky a good chance and Matt Lowton hit the bar with a cross, but we then had to wait almost half an hour for some more excitement. Danny Welbeck found himself in on goal twice but couldn’t find a way through Nick Pope, who single-handedly kept Burnley level at the break. It was all Brighton.12 – Brighton had 12 shots in the first half against Burnley; it’s the most the Seagulls have ever had in the opening 45 minutes of a Premier League game. Knocking. #BHABUR pic.twitter.com/saeok9Nbzk— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) November 6, 2020Burnley threatened to get more involved after the break but it was Brighton who enjoyed the better chances. Pascal Gross and Neal Maupay had a handful of good efforts early in the second half but neither could find a way through the Burnley wall.Brighton pressed and pressed and pressed but ultimately lacked the quality needed to claim all three points.1.
