Burnley vs Southampton: Match Preview, Prediction & Predicted Lineup
Burnley will take on Southampton at the Turf Moor, the home ground of Burnley Football club. Europa League qualification last season did more harm than good for Burnley FC as they failed to recover in time, ahead of the season. As a result, they saw a dip in form and finished 15th in the league. The club played a total of 38 matches, won 11, lost 20, while 7 resulted in a draw.
Southampton had an efflux of players which saw them fall short of quality in each of the departments. It had a strong bearing on their league position as they finished at 16th position on the table, winning just 9 of their matches, while losing almost double of it, 17. 12 of their matches resulted in a draw and they were fighting to save themselves from relegation for a large part of the last season.
