Burnley

Last updated: Sat 10 August 2019 08:29
In Brief

Narrowly avoided relegation last season and know how important strong start to the campaign is. Defour and Brady remain out. Tarkowski, Long and Cork passed fit.

Looking Back

Burnley ended preparations for new season with 2 impressive wins – 6:1 vs. Nice and 2:0 vs. Parma.

Known as team heavily relying on home games for wins – over 72% of points generated in last 2 season collected at home.

Looking Ahead

Coach Dyche has choice to make in attack with Wood nailed on starter after scoring 9 goals in pre-season, but newcomer Rodriguez threatening Barnes for other spot. Former scored 6 goals in pre-season, while Barnes failed to get on the scoresheet at all.

Tarkowski, Long and Cork overcame minor issues on time. Brady failed to recover from rib injury though, while Defour still not over injury that ruined his last season and he remains in rehabilitation.

Points of Interest

On five-game unbeaten run in this fixture, but all of last 3 clashes ended in draws.

Southampton

Last updated: Sat 10 August 2019 08:30
In Brief

Hope revival under Hasenhuttl from last spring to be transported into new campaign. Manager changed the main formation this summer. McQueen sidelined, but everyone important fit.

Looking Back

Saints enjoyed very good spring under Hasenhuttl. Coach was patient with team and style of play he really wants until end of last season, but adopted new main formation this summer.

Had impressive pre-season – 4 wins, 1 draw and 0 defeats! Scored 2 goals or more in 4 of these 5 games, while at same time didn’t concede more than 1 goal in a match.

Looking Ahead

Coach Hasenhuttl set to use 3-4-3 shape with Redmond and Adams flanking Ings in attack.

Hojbjerg was made team captain in summer and his role in midfield is seen as very important.

No serious injury issues.

Points of Interest

No Southampton player has scored more than 7 league goals in a season in last 3 campaigns! The last Saint in double figures was Sadio Mane (now Liverpool) back in 2015/16.
