What Sean Dyche and Graham Potter had to say ahead of Burnley v Brighton
Both sides find themselves at the wrong end of the table just over half-way in, but recent results have seen the pair open up a little bit of a gap on the bottom three.
The Seagulls, who have won three of their last four, followed the Clarets' lead when downing champions Liverpool at Anfield recently.
Burnley are 17th with 22 points after 21 games played while the visitors are two places and two points above having played a game extra.
On Brighton's success at Anfield: "I think they'll be delighted. There's a little bit of noise about Liverpool, they're not quite on song, but you've still got to play well, which they did.
"I saw most of the game, they defended well, defended in numbers, but still attacked well. They found that balance and they'll be looking to do that again. You've got to be effective."
On today's opponents: “I think they're a good outfit, I think the manager has done a lot of good work, he's stuck to what he believes in and he's willing to be flexible.
"They had a tough spell but they're coming through it so it's another good save and it makes for another good Premier League game.
"It's another challenge for us, we're used to these challenges and we'll be ready to take it on."
On Graham Potter: "In my brief meetings with him I like him as a bloke.
"He's very honest, it seems, about what he wants to achieve and I think they're still a side that builds on defensive organisation.
"You have to defend well in the Premier League, there's no doubt about that.”
On the Clarets: “Burnley are very good at what they do and they make it very difficult and they’ve got a real clarity of what they are trying to achieve.
"You can see the work. So it’s going to be a tough match. It’s the same in that you have to have the balance in defence and attack.
"You have to be aware and respectful of the opposition. Every opposition brings something different, it’s an incredible test and we should never lose sight of that in the Premier League."
On Sean Dyche: "I have huge respect for Sean Dyche and the job he has done there. Fantastic. I like what they do a lot."
On that win in Merseyside: "It doesn’t happen very often that you go to the champions and win, so we’ll enjoy that, but pretty quickly we’ll be back down to earth.”
