Draw would suit Burnley and Southampton

Sean Dyche's side have not won in 11 games

3pm Saturday

Burnley are inching towards the oft-quoted 40-point survival mark and they can gain another useful point by holding improving Southampton to a draw at Turf Moor.

Sean Dyche's side have not won in 11 games but they haven't lost at home to anyone other than the big six since West Brom defeated them 1-0 in August.

It looks like a game neither side will want to lose and a draw would be a decent result for Southampton, who haven't lost on their last five road trips.

Recommendation
Draw
1pt 21-10 general
