Southampton In Excellent Form
Southampton have had an excellent start this season, despite struggling for wins during the first few games.
Much like Leicester the Saints have used their European adventures to kick-start their Premier League campaign.
Despite the added pressure of the games and the toll it will take on the players, they have risen to the challenge and thrived on it.
Their opening win in the Europa League against Sparta Praha has seen them go unbeaten, with no defeats in their last six.
Southampton currently find themselves in 10th place, on 9 points after seven matches. A decent enough start for Claude Puel, having never managed in the Premier League.
They will be looking to register their third win of the season, with three draws and two defeats as well.
Their recent record against Burnley is excellent, they have won three of their last four meetings.
Burnley travel to the South Coast on the back of a narrow 1-0 defeat against Arsenal.
It’s a result that Sean Dyche will have been devastated, Burnley more than held their own but succumbed to late pressure.
It took the Gunners until the 93rd minute to finally break the Claret defence, with Laurent Koscielny the unlikely match winner.
That consigned Burnley to three defeats in five Premier League matches but they have had an excellent start.
Burnley will target these types of matches for wins, although a win away at Southampton would be one of their best wins of the season.
The unpredictable nature of the Premier League has bitten Burnley more than a few times, with the defeat against Arsenal evidence of that.
They have beaten the likes of Liverpool and Watford this season, with both victories coming at Turf Moor.
