Betting tips and match preview | Premier League
Burnley welcome Southampton to Turf Moor in another round of league fixtures, with both sides drawing their FA Cup matches.
Sean Dyche’s side come into this match on the back of another dismal away performance, albeit against Sunderland in the FA Cup.
It was a match that saw Joey Barton make his second debut for the club, with the Rangers move failing miserably.
He could not inspire Burnley to a first away win of the season though, with the Clarets unable to trouble the scorers again.
The draw is Burnley’s first for a long time, their last draw coming against Manchester United in October.
Clarets In Mixed Form
Burnley come into this match in mixed recent form, with two wins, three defeats and a draw in their last six.
They will be looking to avenge the 3-1 defeat against Claude Puel’s side earlier in the season, Burnley have been excellent at home.
Dyche’s men will be looking to make it a third win in seven matches, Barton could make his Premier League debut for the Clarets.
The Clarets excellent home record continues, they will look to win their 8th game at home this season.
Their record is one of the best in the league, with only Chelsea and United faring better at home.
Sean Dyche’s men will be looking to better their overall form against Southampton, with Burnley winning 7, drawing 9 and losing 10 of 26 meetings.
Saints In Great Form
The Saints come into this match on the back of a 1-0 win against Liverpool, with a crucial advantage taken in the EFL Cup.
Nathan Redmond (20), got his side off to the perfect start, with the winger making the most of a Ragnar Klavan error.
Redmond wasted a hatful of chances on the night, those missed opportunities may come back to haunt Southampton.
Liverpool dominated possession at St.Mary’s but in truth Southampton were far more clinical, they could have gone to Anfield with a much greater advantage.
Southampton Need Consistency
The Saints have had a reasonably mixed bag throughout the season, that win is their first in five matches though.
They had won just one of their last six matches, with two draws and three straight defeats in that sequence.
Claude Puel will be wanting his side to improve their Premier League form, with the Saints dropping below South Coast rivals Bournemouth.
