After three losses on the trot Southampton will be looking to bounce back when they travel to Turfmoor to take on Burnley. On Monday night Southampton were very unlucky to lose to Manchester United, the Saints were the better team but couldnt convert their chances and football is all about taking your chances when they arise. With Long and Pelle up front Southampton will create enough chances to win games it is just a matter of taking them, Tadic was a terrific summer signing and plays the creative role very well. Ronald Koeman knows his side did not deserve to lose the last three games but this is a results driven industry and Koeman will be aware that Southampton must win again to keep their season going and to build some momentum after a tough couple of weeks.
Burnley themselves have had a good month with two wins , two draws but they lost last time out to fellow relegation strugglers QPR. Burnley are back in the relegation zone but they must get ppoints from home games if they are to survive. This is a really tough fixture for Burnley facing a Southampton team who are desperate for points. Danny Ings will be the main threat for the newly promoted side , can he find room against a Southampton defence that is still the best in the league despite losing their last three?
I am on Southampton here, the Saints are due a bounce back and played really well without getting the win on Monday. I think that the price here on the moneyline is generous and I will be on Southampton big here. I am also going to take Southampton -1 on the handicap as I see some value there with a big price.
