Burnley vs Southampton match preview

Burnley have been excellent this season but their recent form has been nowhere near as good.

The Clarets are without a win in 2018, in fact their last win came back on the 12th December, twelve matches ago.

Sean Dyche’s team have lost 5 games at Turf Moor in the Premier League this season. 2 of those 5 defeats have come in their 3 home fixture thus far in 2018.

Southampton are slowly improving

Southampton have been picking up form in recent weeks as they hope to avoid relegation. The Saints have lost just twice during this calendar year; two home fixtures against Crystal Palace and Liverpool.

Burnley won the reverse fixture between the two sides earlier in the season. Sam Vokes’ late strike gave his side all three points away at St Mary’s.

Southampton would jump out of the relegation zone if they win at Turf Moor provided that at least one of the five teams above them drop points.

Burnley team news

Burnley have a long injury list including the likes of Phil Bardsley, James Tarkowski, Tom Heaton, Steven Defour, Dean Marney, Jonathan Walters and Chris Wood.

The latter three are all ruled out with a similar knee problem.

Ashley Barnes is likely to start up front with Sam Vokes in a team very similar to the starting XI that lost to Swansea two weeks ago.

Southampton team news

Southampton have suffered a mini defensive crisis ahead of the Burnley match.

Maya Yoshida is ruled out whilst Florin Gardos has been loaned to Clubul Sportive Universitatea Craiova.

This leaves Southampton rather short at the back, considering the Saints also let go of Virgil Van Dijk in January.

To sum up, Southampton can’t afford to sustain any injuries or suspensions.

They too are likely to field a similar side to their last match.
