In two meetings last season, there were two draws between these teams. Both clubs will be looking for an opening day win to get on the board with three points.
Southampton had a rough year last season, finishing 16th out of 20th. They were in danger of the relegation zone, but ended up with 39 points. This was 5 points clear of relegation. Last season they also only won 9 times so they will be looking to improve on that as well.
The attack for Southampton was not the worst in the EPL, but they were nowhere near the top. They only managed to score 45 goals in 38 games. Both James Ward-Prowse and Danny Ings led the team with 7 goals apiece. This is the most concerning part because they just do not have guys who can take over a game. They also do not have a go to guy, which is usually necessary for success in the EPL. Look for Southampton to establish a goal scorer in this game and hopefully managed to put one on the scoreboard.
The defending was easily the worst part of this club last year. They allowed 65 goals in total. This gave them a goal differential of -20. Playing on the road will make it that much harder, but given their opponent, they do have the talent to keep Burnley at bay.
Burnley finished one place higher than Southampton at 15th. They earned 40 points, so also just 1 point above Southampton. They did finish with double-digits wins, which is something, but still far from where they want to be. This is their chance to start the season strong against a team they have played to a draw two games in a row.
The Burnley attack is about on par with Southampton. They too scored 45 times last season. The difference with Burnley is they had two goal scorers with 10 or more goals. However, the problem with that is after their top two guys, it drops off and their third highest scorer had three goals.
The defending was actually worse than Southampton’s. They allowed 68 goals on the season. This gave them a goal differential of -23. They are familiar with this Southampton side enough to where I am confident one goal is as much as Burnley will allow.

The last two games between these clubs have ended in a draw. I do not see enough fire power from either side to pick a winner. That said, I will pick this game to end in a draw as well.
