Burnley vs Southampton Match Preview
Goals are not expected to flow freely in this opening Premier League fixture for two clubs who will be happy to keep well away from the relegation fight this season.
Burnley and Southampton finished 15th and 16th respectively in the table last term, comfortably staying up in the end but nevertheless having to look over their shoulders for much of the campaign.
The bookmakers prefer the chances of Southampton to push upwards this time around, surely because this will be a first full season in charge for manager Ralph Hasenhuttl who did improve the team after his appointment as successor to Mark Hughes in early December.
Southampton have been among the quieter top-flight clubs in the transfer market this summer, probably because they have a large squad and Hasenhuttl may well have wanted a proper look at all the resources available to him during pre-season.
As for the Clarets, their most notable signing at the time of writing was an old boy of both themselves and Saints, Jay Rodriguez, who has returned from West Brom.
These clubs have been producing generally low-scoring contests when they have both been in the Premier League over the last few years and there looks to be no reason why this game should be any different, with a share of the spoils looking a likely outcome.
