On the other hand, Burnley have been in a good form in the PL of late, and sharing the spoils with Arsenal. Accordingly, the visitors are positive ahead of the trip to Southampton. So clash will be spectacular as fans are expecting numerous goals in this match.

Burnley, on the other hand, are having a three-game unbeaten PL run after a goalless draw against Arsenal (two wins, and one draw). Burnley and Southampton are having the same amount of points (31) and record. Sean Dyche’s team have been much better in defence however.
