(Photo by Robin Jones/Getty Images) Southampton will be hoping to get their season going when they make the trip to Turf Moor to face Burnley this evening. Three losses in League and Cup so far in 2020/21 have seen Saints struggle to reach the levels of performance that they were putting in at the end of the last campaign. Now a trip to face Sean Dyche's Clarets provides an, albeit tricky, opportunity to put things right. Saints' record at Turf Moor is not a good one – they have not won there since 2007 and have a very inconsistent past against an opponent they often find hard to get the better of.
However, team news ahead of today's meeting suggests that Saints have the ideal chance to claim three points this time around. Burnley could be without up to seven first-team regulars as their early-season injury list continues to grow. Ben Mee, Jack Cork, Johann Berg Gudmundsson, Ashley Barnes and Jay Rodriguez are all set to remain on the sidelines for this game, with Sean Dyche potentially pinning his hopes on two players passing late fitness tests. James Tarkowski and Robbie Brady have a good chance of being available for the hosts and provide a boost should they be able to start this evening. In contrast, Saints have just one injured player that they will not be able to call upon.
Nathan Redmond picked up an ankle injury in the League Cup loss to Brentford and has remained on the treatment table since then. He could return to action in mid-October. Fitness work will have been on the agenda for Ralph Hasenhuttl and his team this week after their sluggish start to the campaign and they will be hoping to see the benefits at Turf Moor later on. Predicted Burnley team (4-4-2) Nick Pope, Phil Bardsley, Kevin Long, James Tarkowski, Charlie Taylor, Ashley Westwood, Josh Brownhill, Robbie Brady, Dwight McNeil, Matej Vydra, Chris Wood Predicted Saints team (4-2-2-2) Alex McCarthy, Kyle Walker-Peters, Jan Bednarek, Jack Stephens, Ryan Bertrand, James Ward-Prowse, Oriol Romeu, Stuart Armstrong, Moussa Djenepo, Che Adams, Danny Ings Burnley vs Southampton live streaming free Prediction for the English Premier League match (September 26, 2020) We offer a forecast for the England league match, in which Burnley will host Southampton on 26 September. Will the guests be able to win the long-awaited victory? – the answer is in our material. Burnley Burnley had one of the best seasons in history last year. For 38 matches of the tournament, the Lancashire team won 15 victories and ended nine matches in a draw, which brought 54 points and 10th place in the standings. Remarkably, the defeat in the last round to Brighton (1: 2) deprived the Burgundy of the opportunity to get ahead of Arsenal and move up to eighth position. Sean Dych's side got off to a good start in England's new big football season with two League Cup victories over Sheffield United (2-1 p.) And Millwall (2-0). The hosts lost the start in the Premier League, losing to Leicester (2: 4). Cork, Mee, Barnes, Rodriguez and Brady will not be able to enter the field in today's match. Southampton According to the results of the last season, the Premier League" Southampton" is located right behind today's opponent, losing some two points. During the tournament, the" saints" won 15 victories and seven times at odds with their rivals in the world. The start of the new Premier League championship was unsuccessful for the guests – defeats to Crystal Palace (0: 1) and Tottenham (2: 5), in addition to this, an unsuccessful start in the League Cup, where Ralph Hasenhüttl's men could not cope with "Brentford" (0: 2). In the summer, two defenders joined the team – Tottenham's Kyle Walker (13.3 million) and Mohammed Salisu (12 million). Redmond and Salisa will not be able to take part in today's match. Statistics Southampton Can't Win in Last Seven Head-to-Head Games Southampton have lost their last three games in a row Burnley have conceded 7 of 10 last home games The last personal meeting ended with the victory of "Burnley" (2: 1) Personal meetings 08/10/19 Burnley Southampton thirty 10/16/16 Southampton Burnley 3: 1 Forecast The guests have not yet been able to get tournament points, and the hosts started with a slip. In our opinion, the opponents will play as carefully as possible in defense, because the attack is not their strong point. We suppose that today we are waiting for the maximum intensity of passions in the center of the field, and the outcome of the duel will be decided by one, maximum two goals, on which we propose to play a bet. Our prediction is that the total is less than 2.5 goals and we bet on this using the Winline betting line with the odds of 1.81
