Southampton vs Burnley Betting Tip and Predictions. In the Round 8 in Premier League, Southampton host Burnley at St Mary’s Stadium. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Southampton vs Burnley.
Southampton haven’t made the good start of the season in Premier League and they failed to win in the opening four rounds, but after that they have improved their performance and currently stand at the middle of the table. Home side is unbeaten in the last 6 matches in all competitions (4-2-0), but the interesting fact is that they they didn’t concede a single goals on all those 6 games. The match against new promoted team Burnley could be the good chance for Southampton to continue with the good performance and win for the 3rd time this season in league. Their defence is doing great job so far, but they need to make something in the attack. Two important strikers Bertrand and Long are both injured, so their replacement Austin has to do something upfront opponent goal. Good thing for Southampton manager Claude Puel is the recent form of play maker Dusan Tadic. The Serb has exploded in Serbian football national team and in three matches he scored 3 goals and assisted 5 times. Without any doubt he could be the most dangerous player for visitors defence.
Home team miss Cedric Soares and Ryan Bertrand due to injury, while Shane Long is doubtful and he will probably start the match on the bench. Gardos, Pied and Boufal are also out. Visitors miss their striker Andre Gray due to suspension and injured Barnes, while their first goalkeeper and captain Tom Heaton is doubtful, but he should probably start at the goal line.

Southamption is without any doubt better side and they are favorites to win this game. Visitors will probably play defensively and try to secure their net.
