Southampton v Burnley Preview
Burnley travel to the south coast to take on Burnley in the Premier League and the two sides will aim to pip one another, to further consolidate their position in the league standings. Ralph Hasenhuttl's side have been one of the most in-form teams in the country since their 9-0 demolition against Leicester City last year and are spearheaded by their talisman Danny Ings, who has scored 14 goals in the top flight this season.
The Saints, however, have struggled at home this season, as they have the worst record in front of their own fans and have their work cut out for them to get a result against Sean Dyche's side.

Southampton v Burnley Prediction
Southampton's dismal home record and their winless run in their last 3 games does not work in their favour, as Burnley are expected to give them a run for their money. Both sides are level on points and could jump to the top half of the Premier League table with a victory.
It'll be hard to separate the two sides but an entertaining game could be on the cards, with a draw being the most likely outcome.
