THE PREDICTION

Both of these teams are coming off heavy losses where Burnley went down 4-2 against Leicester and Southampton were beaten 5-2 by Spurs so they will be looking to shore things up at the back. Burnley at least have the excuse of having a whole host of injuries to contend with and it remains to be seen as to what team Sean Dyche will be able to field. Southampton have lost their three competitive matches so far this season and alarm bells will be ringing already for Ralph Hasenhuttl. Neither defence is overly convincing right now but one would expect Burnley to get back to basics especially if Tarkowski returns. If he does not however, they could be in trouble with Southampton favoured due to simply being able to call upon something close to their strongest line-up barring Redmond. There could well be value on both teams scoring here too.
