Managerless Burnley know that they need to start picking up wins sooner rather than later if they want to extend their five year stay in the Premier League. Five defeats in their last seven games has left them adrift in the bottom three with relegation now a real possibility for the Clarets.

Caretaker manager Michael Jackson (no not that one) had Nick Pope to thank for the draw against West Ham on Sunday, with the England goalkeeper putting in a fine display and making five saves to help his side take a much needed away point. Wout Weghorst scored just his second goal for the club after his January move from Wolfsburg, which will be a relief for the 6ft 6in striker.

Southampton have had mixed fortunes to say the least in their last two Premier League games, battling hard to a 1-0 win over Arsenal on Saturday just a week on after being hammered by Chelsea 6-0 at St.Mary’s, a score which actually flattered the Saints.

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side have lost two of their last three games against sides in the relegation zone, which is as many in their previous 14 combined and they won’t be looking to complete the hat-trick at Turf Moor.

Burnley vs Southampton: Match Stats

Maxwell Cornet is Burnley’s top goalscorer in the Premier League this season, notching seven times in 21 games for the club he signed for in the summer. The Ivorian has struggled since returning from AFCON though, netting just once in his 11 games since the tournament.

He did both score and assist in his last outing at Turf Moor against Everton though and will be hoping to find his form again after Sean Dyche’s departure. This was just the second time a Burnley player had both scored and assisted in a Premier League game after Wout Weghorst did so against Brighton in his first away game for the club.

James Ward-Prowse has been directly involved in nine goals in 15 away games for Southampton this season, scoring six and assisting a further three. The English midfielder has scored three penalties and three direct-free kicks away from home and has been absolutely lethal from set-pieces.

The Clarets won’t want to be giving any fouls away in or around the box.
