Tough evening for the right-back, who wasn't as effective going forward from right-back as normal.
Tough time against Woods and Barnes. Deflected low McNeil cross onto the bar in a big let-off for Brighton. Header cleared off the line late in the first half. Headed home Knockaert's free kick to make it 3-1.
Charged down low Hendrick strike in the first half. Slip allowed Wood to go through and give Burnley the lead. Tough evening against Burnley's front two.
Looked to get forward from left-back. Lovely cross set up March for early chance. Brave challenge to stop Bardsley from shooting shortly afterwards.
Back in the starting line-up after missing two games with a hip injury. Looked to keep things simple in front of the back four. Unable to stop McNeil setting up Wood for Burnley's second.
Made a bright start but faded the longer the game went on. Had a sweetly-struck volley superbly saved by Heaton. Subbed.
Always an option for team-mates to pass to but had a quieter game than in recent weeks.
Lively down the right. Header pushed over by Heaton in early exchanges and also saw a fierce strike save by the Burnley keeper. Picked up a knock and subbed early in the second half.
Burnley's centre-backs marshalled Albion's top-scorer well. Headed Gross cross wide at the near post late in the first half.
Apart from setting up opening for March, struggled to really get into the game. Subbed.
Sent on early in the second half. Energetic and free kick set up Duffy to make it 3-1.
Sent on after 65 minutes.
Came on after 65 minutes.
Outstanding in goal. Made two excellent early saves to deny March and Gross. Also pushed away another March effort and Gross cross with Murray lurking behind.
Steady at the back. Low strike saved by Ryan at 1-0. Blocked goalbound Gross shot.
Strong performance at the back up aginst Murray.
Solid, strong in the air and good range of passing.
Steady at the back. Crucial touch to take ball away from Locadia early on when Brighton threatened from a set-piece.
Low drive blocked by Dunk. Set up Bardsley for an opportunity in the first half. Cleared Duffy's header off the line. Perhaps fortunate not to give away a penalty for handball at 2-0.
Hard-working display in central midfield.
Lively. Sent in dangerous low cross which Duffy turned onto the bar. Set up Burnley's second when he burst forward and played in Wood.
Headed against the top of the bar with the goal gaping on 17 minutes. Long ball forward set up Wood to put Burnley ahead. Got the third from the penalty spot after he was fouled by Ryan.
Full of running. Tidy work in the middle of the park.
Held the ball up well and scored twice. Gave Burnley the lead when he capitalised on Dunk's slip to fire home and coolly side-footed home his second.
