Burnley and Southhampton will be back in action this Thursday at Turf Moor when they face each other in 34th game week of the English Premier League. Kickoffs at 21:45 EAT.
Burnley is place 18th 18th with 25 points in the standings, three points adrift from safety. This will be the first time since October 2012 Burnley will take to the Turf Moor pitch without Sean Dyche in charge. Burnley's first game for nine-and-a-half-years without Sean Dyche in the dugout saw them claim a point away at West Ham United last weekend, though they missed the chance to secure all three.
The Clarets gets into this encounter off the back of a 1-1 Premier League draw with West Ham United in their last fixture. In that match, Burnley had 39% possession, nine shots with just one of them on target and a goal scored by Wout Weghorst (33'). West Ham United got 22 shots with nine of them on target and a goal by Tomáš Souček (74').
Meanwhile, The Saints travel to Turf Moor on Thursday looking to claim back-to-back away victories against Burnley for just the second time, having previously beaten the Clarets on the road in 2006 and 2007 when both sides were in the Championship. Southampton, however, have lost two of their last three Premier League matches against teams in the bottom three, including the 2-1 home defeat against Watford last month, so they will be wary of the threat Burnley could pose on Thursday.
Southampton goes into this clash following a 1-0 Premier League victory over Arsenal in their last game. In that match, Southampton had 24% possession, nine shots with three of on target and a goal scored by Jan Bednarek (44'). Arsenal got 23 shiots with six of them on target.
