Burnley Form & Team News
Burnley have had a fairly quiet summer this year. The Lancashire club have brought in players who will help fill out their squad, though, none of them are likely to really affect the make-up of the team.
Sean Dyche’s is likely to stick with Chris Wood upfront in favour of new signing, Jay Rodriguez, while deadline day signing, Danny Drinkwater could be injected into the starting 11. The former Leicester star has had a rough ride during his time at Chelsea and a season away from Stamford Bridge may help him reinvent himself.
Burnley are currently being priced at 2.75 by bet365 to win the match. These odds are quite long given that the team are at home.
Southampton Form & Team News
Ralph Hassenhuttl has done a brilliant job at Southampton since arriving back in January. With a full pre-season under his belt and the squad slowly beginning to develop a new identity under the Austrian coach.
Hassenhuttl has signed well over the summer, with Birmingham striker, Che Adams potentially holding the key to The Saints’ success this coming campaign. The striker bagged 22 goals in the Championship last season and looks ready to take the step up a division.
The Saints have had an impressive pre-season campaign, winning 4 of their 5 fixtures. Their most notable win was an impressive victory 3-1 away against Eredivise side, Feyenoord.
Southampton are currently being valued at 2.80, just behind their opponents on Saturday afternoon.
Burnley vs Southampton Analysis- Tight game tipped at Turf Moor
Burnley vs Southampton is not a game that has been famous for setting the world on fire in recent seasons. Both of the sides’ encounters last season ended in a draw, 0-0 at St Marys and 1-1 at Turf Moor.
In fact, just two of the matches between the teams have featured more than two goals in the eight times that they have met as Premier League sides, which doesn’t bode well for those expecting an exciting game on Saturday.
Burnley vs Southampton- All signs point to a draw
Given their previous records against one another, bet365 pricing under 2.5 goals at 1.72 is excellent value. A repeat of last season’s 1-1 draw scoreline from the same fixture is also absolutely brilliant value at 6.50.
If you are looking in the goalscorer market, Southampton new boy, Che Adams presents great odds at 3.10 with bet365.
