Albion have been told they can take on the big guns with confidence, despite their Carrow Road blank.

Manchester City visit the Amex on Saturday and Albion then go to Liverpool.

The Seagulls won both corresponding fixtures last season.

Dan Burn was heavily involved in the only goal at Anfield and hit the winner when City were defeated 3-2 at the Amex.

That win over Pep Guardiola’s side will be in the memory of both teams on Saturday.

Burn said: “We will prepare and we are high on confidence.

“That win against them last season was huge for us.


“I think we have been quite consistent in our performances against them over the last couple of seasons but haven’t picked up the results.

“To put in the performance we did and pick up the win is a massive confidence-booster and it will take us into the game.”

Yves Bissouma and Enock Mwepu returned to the Albion matchday squad at Carrow Road after injury-enforced absences but remained unused on the substitutes’ bench.
