Burnley vs Southampton – Premier League: The surprise Burnley hosts Southampton at home, on the Premier League’s 28th round
After a demolishing and surprising start to the Premier League, it was natural to see an adjustment on Burnley’s campaign. A club with a more modest team and budget would obviously struggle against teams with more power.
I find it weird the size of this adjustment. Burnley hasn’t won in the Premier League for 10 matches, beside getting some results on the cup matches as well.
Still, on this streak, we have to highlight the draw against Manchester United away from home and the draw against Manchester City at
Despite that negative streak, Burnley still occupies the 7th place, being the “first place” if we exclude the usual Premier League’s giants.

Despite the victories, Southampton is still on the relegation zone of the Premier League, sitting in 18th place with 26 points.
As visitors, like they will play here, Southampton has only won twice, besides getting 5 other draws and 5 losses, with a record of 12 goals scored and 19 conceded.
Burnley vs Southampton – Betting Tip and Prediction:
But once again, I see Southampton being overvalued here. A lot has been said about Southampton’s recovery of this disaster of a season.
But of the 3 victories that point towards that supposed recovery, two of them were against West Bromwich, who is in last place of the Premier League, besides another win over Watford.
Even on this streak, I believe that Burnley maintains some of those positive characteristics that we saw on their spectacular start to the season.
