Two sides looking to pick up their first victory of the New Year this weekend, Burnley will welcome a struggling Southampton to Turf Moor on Saturday night.

Eventually opening up the 2020/2021 campaign with a 4-2 defeat against Champions League hopefuls Leicester on their top-flight return last week, the Clarets did manage to land a 2-0 win away at Millwall on EFL Cup duties in midweek and they will be desperate to drag that momentum into Saturday.

On the flip side, crashing out of the Cup last week at the hands of Championship outfit Brentford on the South Coast, it really has been a worrying start to the new campaign for a downbeat Southampton.

Throwing away the lead and blown away at the hands of Tottenham at St. Mary’s last weekend, the Saints were on the wrong end of a 5-2 hammering and have now been hit with back-to-back Premier League defeats.

in for what could be a tough test to Lancashire on Saturday night, it should also be noted that including a 2-1 win when the two sides faced off back in February, Burnley have landed back-to-back victories against Southampton.

You might be interested to know that a similar home victory on Saturday can be found priced at 11/5 with Coral.

Chris Wood – Burnley’s MVP?

Bouncing back from their 4-2 defeat away at Leicester last weekend and booking their spot in the fourth round of this year’s EFL Cup thanks to a 2-0 win away at Millwall, Burnley will be glad to make a return to Turf Moor on Saturday night.

With Sean Dyche confirming that Brighton midfielder Dale Stephens is on the verge of securing a move to Lancashire, his arrival couldn’t have come at a better time for the Clarets.

With their injury list only growing after watching former Southampton man Jay Rodriguez limp off in South London earlier in the week, it is no surprise that Dyche will be calling on attacking talisman Chris Wood to lead their charge this weekend

Continuing on his stellar record against the Foxes last week and opening his account at the King Power, the New Zealand international also signed off last year’s campaign with a real flurry.

Finding the net in each of his final three Premier League matchups on the bounce over the summer, you might be interested to know that Wood can be found priced at 15/8 with Ladbrokes to bag back-to-back top-flight strikes this weekend.

Ings shines in defeat

While there might have been plenty of promise around St. Mary’s after their eye-catching return from the enforced break back in June, Southampton have really come crashing back down to earth after a worrying start.

Along with opening the 2020/2021 campaign with a shock 1-0 loss away at Crystal Palace, the Saints were also completely blown away at the hands of an inconsistent Tottenham on the South Coast.

Hit with a 5-2 defeat and losing each of their three competitive matchups this season, Ralph Hasenhüttl would have at least been glad to see Danny Ings open his account in an empathic fashion.

Cementing his spot as Southampton’s attacking talisman and linked with a string of the Premier League elite before the transfer window slams shut next month, the England international bagged a brace against Spurs and will lead their charge at Turf Moor.

Enjoying what was a record-breaking campaign last season, you might be interested to know that the one-time Burnley starlet can be found priced at 1/1 with Paddy Power to extend on his tally this weekend.
