Burnley News and Form
The Clarets had some major struggles last season. The big reason for that is that they couldn’t turn Turf Moor into the fortress that it needed to be. Burnley produced a W7 D2 L10 record on home soil in last season’s top flight. They crashed to four losses in their last six home fixtures as well (W2).
They were just in poor shape through to Christmas, but Sean Dyche worked his magic to get the Clarets safe. They have added Jay Rodriguez to their attacking lineup and they have keeper Nick Pope back fit. Those a both big boons for them. Have Burnley though done enough though over the summer to take a step forward?
Or is another tough season on the cards for them? Burnley averaged 1.25 goals per home game last season but they conceded at a terrible average of 1.7 per home fixture. It is that home form improvement which has to be their focus. The Clarets conceded 62% of their home goals in the second period of games last campaign. Burnley lost just one game home and away combined, against a side who finished in the bottom seven (W8 D3).

Southampton News and Form
It hadn’t been for the arrival of Ralph Hassenhuttl, where would Southampton be? The boss was their big saviour as they clawed their way to safety. They dug out their survival thanks to their home form. It was just a poor season all through from the saints in the top flight.
They ended with a record of W4 D4 L11 from their efforts away from home. They had their goal scoring problems, averaging under a goal per away game. They were a defensive mess as well conceding at an average of 1.8 per game. But survival was all that mattered at the end of the day, now can Hassenhuttl take them forward?
The Austrian’s style is high-energy and that paid dividends for the Saints. They were certainly playing much better football under him than under they did under Mark Hughes. They look a bit more of a threat up front with Che Adams arriving from Birmingham to link up with Danny Ings. They need a positive start to settle nerves.
