Burnley travel to Southampton seeking to leapfrog Saints in the Premier League.

Southampton v Burnley
Published: Sunday, 4th April 2021 at 10:30 am

Burnley’s remarkable steer away from the Premier League relegation zone this spring could continue on Sunday when they face fellow bottom-half side Southampton at St Mary’s.


The Clarets have lost just one of their last seven Premier League fixtures to edge well clear of the drop zone.

A 2-1 win at Everton before the international break has Sean Dyche’s men in a much more relaxed state but they will hope to exploit the current turmoil at Southampton and claim three points here. 

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men have claimed just one win from their last 12 league outings and only a surge to the FA Cup semi-finals has kept spirits high in the camp.

Saints aren’t in any real danger of relegation but a loss on Sunday would see them slip below Burnley and potentially as low as 16th by the end of the weekend. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Southampton v Burnley on TV and online.

Our prediction: Southampton v Burnley

Teams out of form rarely enjoy coming up against Burnley, who excel in testing the opposition mettle to the max.

On Sunday the Clarets will arrive at St Mary’s with the intention of setting the early tempo and frustrating their hosts. Don’t be surprised if Chris Wood scores for a third successive game.

Saints will try to come at Burnley but may struggle, especially if Ings and Walcott don’t make the XI. This game may not feature many scoring opportunities but those that do come will likely fall to the visitors.

Our prediction: Southampton 0-1 Burnley (10/1 at bet365)
