Last week’s drab 1-1 draw away at Brighton was hardly a source of inspiration for the Southampton fans unhappy at the club’s profligacy in front of goal and leaky defence.
This week, Mauricio Pellegrino’s Southampton welcome Burnley, whose manager—Sean Dyche—is being heavily linked to a move to Everton following the sacking of former Saints boss Ronald Koeman.
Saints’ dynamic midfielder Mario Lemina remains sidelined with an ankle injury which kept him from appearing against Brighton last week.
Meanwhile, Burnley—who have made a great start to this 2017/18 Premier League campaign—are missing Jon Walters, Dean Marney and Tom Heaton. Belgian playmaker Steven Defour is expected to return to the first team today.
Stats Zone (via BBC Sport):
Southampton are unbeaten in all eight top-flight home matches against Burnley, winning five and drawing three. Saints have never gone unbeaten in their first nine top-flight home fixtures against another side.
Both of Burnley's league away wins against Southampton were by a 1-0 scoreline in the second tier, in April 1947 and April 2008.
The Saints have won just four of their last 18 Premier League matches.
They have failed to score in nine of their last 16 top-flight games.
Charlie Austin scored 41 goals in 82 league appearances for Burnley. He has been involved in five goals in five league games against the Clarets since leaving (four goals, one assist) and scored a brace in this fixture last season.
The Clarets have already won more games and earned more points away from home this season than they did in the whole of 2016-17.
Burnley's fixtures have produced 18 goals, the fewest in the Premier League this season and one behind Southampton.
They have used just 17 players this season - fewer than any other top-flight club.
Jeff Hendrick has scored two goals in his last four league games, as many as he managed in his previous 35 games.
Jack Cork has covered 121.1km in the league so far this season, more than any other Premier League player.
