Burnley have not won any of their last ten Premier League matches but still find themselves lying seventh in the Premier League going into this weekend’s clash with Southampton. The fact that they are so high up the table even after such a bad run of form either says a lot about their impressive start to the season or the quality of the teams below them.

One of those teams that sit below Burnley are their upcoming opponents Southampton, a side that lie in the bottom three after having only won once in their last six outings. The pressure is certainly on Mauricio Pellegrino to deliver results as the Saints find themselves amid a relegation battle. Both teams need a win for far differing reasons and Saturday could well be the day that the Clarets finally end this barren run of results that they are currently in.

Burnley’s first ever Premier League meeting with Southampton turned out to be a happy one. With Turf Moor as the setting back in December 2014 it was Ashley Barnes who was the hero with his goal 17 minutes from time proving to be the winner as the Clarets earned an historic three points.
