Burnley and Southampton go head-to-head at Turf Moor for their opening 2019-20 Premier League clash.
Both sides endured disappointing 2018-19 PL campaign, as they both barely dodged relegation, and they are now eager to start the new season off on the right foot.
The hosts have racked up a five-game unbeaten run in the build-up to this fixture (W4, D1), with all five of those matches seeing them score two or more goals. Burnley’s sudden rise has seen them bounce back after five consecutive defeats, all of which have seen them score one goal or less. The Clarets now look to stretch their unbeaten home run against Southampton to seven games across all competitions (W3, D3), with five of their last H2HS at this venue featuring under 2.5 goals. Also, none of Burnley’s previous seven league home games has ended in a stalemate (W3, L4), with all of their triumphs in that period seeing them score precisely two goals per match.
On the other hand, the visitors have been impressive during the off-season, securing four wins in five pre-season games (W4, D1). All of those triumphs have seen Southampton score 2+ match goals and restrict their opponents to a maximum of one goal per match. It is important for Ralph Hasenhüttl to see his team enter the new season on a four-game winning run after the Saints closed the last campaign with a five-game winless streak (D3, L2). One of Southampton’s main issues last season was their away form, as they’ve secured just 16 of a total 39 league points on the road (41.02%). Eleven of their total 17 PL defeats last campaign have come away from home.
