Southampton come into this game having finally managed to get their first win of the season last week away to Leeds. It wasn't a vintage performance by any means, but claiming the 3 points was the only thing that under-pressure manager Ralph Hasenhuttl likely cared about. 

The Saints have seriously struggled to score this season. Managing to find the back of the net a mere three times puts them in the bottom three for goals scored. New forward signing Adam Armstrong has struggled to find his place in the team and was even dropped to the bench for the game against Leeds. The summer departure of Danny Ings is definitely being felt. Still, winger Theo Walcott is back here, and he replaces Moussa Djenepo in the forward line.

At least Southampton are fairly solid at the back, having conceded just 10 goals, which is fewer than any other side in the bottom half of the table. The center-back pairing of Jan Bednarek and Mohammed Salisu looks a formidable one. 

Meanwhile, Burnley are one of only three teams in the league that hasn't managed a single victory this season. While the side is infamous for playing unattractive but effective football, this season it's just been the former. Manager Sean Dyche has been labeled a miracle worker for masterminding previous survival campaigns, but he may be unable to prevent the side from tumbling down to the Championship this season. He makes one change here, replacing Erik Pieters with Charlie Taylor.

Burnley badly need a win and fast. Unfortunately, a resilient Southampton team that will be full of confidence after finally getting their own first victory of the season will be a tricky opposition to beat. 

Here's how they line up:

Southampton: McCarthy, Bednarek, Salisu, Perraud, Livramento, Romeu, Elyounoussi, Diallo, Walcott, Redmond, Broja

Burnley: Pope, Lowton, Tarkowski, Collins, Taylor, Cork, Brownhill, Westwood, Cornet, McNeil, Wood
