Burnley vs Southampton: Preview
The Saints have been on hiatus lately. They lost their first two PL matches and were also defeated in their Carabao Cup match. In fact, Carabao’s defeat in the match came against a team from the lower division: Brentford.
They were also struggling towards the end of last season, and they haven’t been that hot on the road in recent weeks either.
Meanwhile, their counterparts have been pretty consistent in 2020 so far, and especially at home, they have been a force to be reckoned with.
On top of that, the Clarets have also been the best team in H2H crashes for the past decade, and in this stadium they had been on fire during that time.
As such, expect a good performance from Burnley this weekend.

Burnley vs Southampton: Prediction
The Clarets lost 4-2 on the road on the final day of the game to Leicester. Although the team lost their first league game, the fact that they have lost only four times in their last 20 attempts is a testament to their consistency.
And it should be noted that two of those losses were to recent EPL champions: Leicester and Manchester City.
Furthermore, he was also undefeated in ten of his twelve previous appearances at this stadium.
On the other hand, his counterpart is on a three-game losing streak. In fact, they had lost their last game 2-5 at home to Tottenham.
On the road, they have won only three times in the last eight months and, interestingly, all of those victories have come against teams relegated to the Championship at the end of the 2019-20 season.
Dyche’s men are on a two-game winning streak against this rival, and they haven’t lost to them in the last four years. And in this field, hosts have not lost a single such device since 2007.
As such, expect Burnley to be the best one-mile team this Saturday at Turf Moor.
