After losing to Man City in their last game in the Premier League, Burnley will be looking to bounce back with a win when they host the struggling Southampton side at the Turf Moor in the 21st round of the English Premier League.
The hosts have been in a very strong situation since the start of the season. The team have hovered around the mid-table area and have been showing glimpses of solid performances here and there since the start of the campaign. Burnley have collected 6 points of a possible 12 in their last 4 league games. Their last game finished in 2-1 defeat at the hands of Manchester City away from home.
Burnley are sitting in the 12th place in the Premier League table with 23 points from 7 wins, 2 draws and 11 losses. They have scored 22 goals and conceded 31 since the start of the season.
Jon Flanagan, George Boyd and Patrick Bamford all missed the weekend’s 0-0 draw with Sunderland in the FA Cup through injury and illness and the trio remain doubts her, although they have returned to training. Ashley Barnes is also back in training after suffering a knock and is an option here.
The visitors have failed to win in their last three league games. Southampton have started the season with a couple of wins before they started dropping points in recent weeks. The team have won only one game in their last five Premier League fixtures. They have collected 4 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games. Their last game was against Everton away from home where they got smashed with three goals to nil.
Southampton are currently sitting in the 10th place in the English Premier League table with 24 points from 6 wins, 6 draws and 8 losses. They have scored 19 goals and conceded 25 since the start of the season.
Sofiane Boufal has withdrawn from Morocco’s squad for the Africa Cup of Nations but won’t be available for selection for Southampton for the next three weeks due to a knee injury.
