Turf Moor is the destination for the weekend’s meeting between Burnley and Southampton. Burnley have been able to pick up a remarkable 11 points from the last six matches but the team still remains on the edge of the safety. Southampton are slightly above Burnley in the league table owing to a better goal difference and the team’s fortunes has also improved after the arrival of Ralph Hasenhuttl.

Burnley shocked Old Trafford with a 2-0 lead in the 81st minute before ending up drawing the game. The Clarets are winless in the last three matches.

Southampton have been quite good since the arrival of Hasenhuttl, who has seen his team remain out in the bottom three with a decent set of results. Burnley are also outside the bottom three but it has taken up a remarkable response from the Clarets in order to move into a positive spot. Both teams have a strong set of form coming into the game and it may be difficult to pick a winner. Burnley have been involved in just one draw at home this season, but the visitors have the ability to force a stalemate.

Burnley win odds: 2.50
Southampton win odds: 2.80
Correct Score odds
Burnley and Southampton meetings in the last two campaigns have produced less than 2.5 goals and it will not be a surprise to witness the same. Southampton may have improved a lot after the managerial change, but this is not necessarily the case with regards to the defence. The clean sheet against Chelsea is the only blank for Southampton in the last 10 matches. Our correct score prediction would go with a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The two teams are expected to score at least a goal and this match but there is unlikely to be enough skill and flair to come up with a large number of goals. It will not be a surprise considering that all of the last four meetings between these two clubs have been with less than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
The form of Chris Wood continues to be fantastic with the striker now up to 4 league goals for the campaign. The 27-year-old scored against Manchester United in the midweek action and it was his first goal in four matches. However, Wood continues to be a key player for Burnley and our first goalscorer prediction would back Chris wood.
