Southampton vs Burnley: Saints team news | Who is available to be selected by Hasenhuttl?

Southampton vs Burnley: Clarets team news | Vydra, Mee and Taylor to be assessed


Southampton vs Burnley team news

Southampton picked up their first victory of the 2021-22 Premier League season last week against Leeds United.

Burnley are still hunting for a win, but Saints manager Ralph Hasenhuttl will be hoping to build some momentum during an important run of games.

In terms of team news, Southampton are missing only two players from their regular starting line up.

Captain James Ward-Prowse is still suspended following his red card against Chelsea. Jack Stephens remains sidelined with the knee injury he picked up against Manchester City in September.

Che Adams, who missed last week’s win against Leeds, is back after recovering from a knock.

Sean Dyche’s Burnley have some fitness concerns for their St Mary’s trip.

Clarets captain Ben Mee could play after returning from isolation following his positive test for COVID-19.

Charlie Taylor and Matej Vydra have also returned to training after recovering from their knocks. However, all three players are to be assessed before the Saints game.

Dale Stephens, who has an ankle injury, is the only Burnley player who is confirmed to be unavailable.


Southampton vs Burnley pre-match stats

  • Southampton won home and away against Burnley in the Premier League last season, as many victories as they’d managed in their first 10 meetings with them in the competition before then (D3 L5).
  • Burnley have won two of their last four away league games against Southampton (D1 L1), as many as they’d managed in their first 25 away league meetings with them prior to this (W2 D10 L13).
  • Southampton have kept two clean sheets in their last three home league games, after a run of 11 without one at St Mary’s. However, Saints have netted just twice in their last five Premier League games at home.
  • No team in the top four tiers of English league football is on a longer current winless run than Burnley (11 - D3 L8), with the Clarets failing to score on seven occasions in that run.
  • Southampton have conceded just one goal in the first half of Premier League games so far this season, with only Manchester City shipping fewer in the opening 45 minutes (0). However, Saints have only scored twice before half-time themselves so far this term.
  • All five of Burnley’s Premier League goals this season have put them ahead in the match (including twice against Leicester). However, the Clarets are still without a win, dropping a joint-high 10 points from winning positions in the Premier League this term (along with Newcastle).
  • Burnley have the oldest average starting XI age in the Premier League so far this season (29 years), while only Arsenal and Brentford have a younger average age among starters than Southampton (25y 301d).

  • Adam Armstrong has had 21 shots in the Premier League this season, at least six more than any other Southampton player. He scored with his second shot of the campaign on MD1 against Everton, but hasn’t found the net with any of his subsequent 19 attempts.
  • Only Bryan Mbeumo (102) has made more targeted runs (a run off the ball in which a teammate specifically looks to find them with a pass) than Burnley’s Chris Wood in the Premier League so far this season (101). However, Wood has been flagged offside more than any other player so far this term (11).
