Burnley head to Southampton on Saturday lunchtime looking to extend their Premier League unbeaten run to four games.

From likely line-ups to key men and the referee, all you need to know ahead of the game can be found below.

Key battle

Former Clarets ace Danny Ings is one of the form strikers in the country. Ex-teammate Ben Mee will have his hands full in trying to stop the Saints’ hitman from adding to the 17 goals he has scored this season.

Last meeting

The teams met on the opening day of the season where Burnley ran out 3-0 winners after scoring three times in 12 second-half minutes. Ashley Barnes scored twice in seven minutes before Johann Berg Gudmundsson grabbed a third.


Simon Hooper: Has shown 69 yellow cards and two red cards in 19 games this season. Took charge of the Clarets’ 3-0 defeat at Sheffield United in November.

Likely line-ups

Southampton: Alex McCarthy, Jack Stephens, Ryan Bertrand, Jan Bednarek, Moussa Djenepo, Oriol Romeu, James Ward-Prowse, Nathan Redmond, Pierre Hojbjerg, Shane Long, Danny Ings.

Clarets: Nick Pope, Matt Lowton, Charlie Taylor, James Tarkowski, Ben Mee, Jack Cork, Dwight McNeil, Jeff Hendrick, Ashley Westwood, Chris Wood, Jay Rodriguez


Southampton are 4/5 to win and avenge defeat on the opening day of the season while the Clarets are 4/1 to come away from the South Coast with three points. As expected, Ings is 3/1 favourite for first scorer – Chris Wood at 6/1 to put the Clarets ahead.
