Predicted Burnley and Southampton line-ups

Match to be played on Saturday 13th December 2014 at 15:00. Venue: Turf Moor, Burnley.

Burnley welcome Southampton to Turf Moor on Saturday. Sean Dyche’s side are 19th in the Premier League table and Southampton are without a point from their tough run of fixtures against Manchester City, Arsenal and Manchester United.

Burnley saw their fine recent run of form come to an end against Queens Park Rangers last weekend and they will have to be at their best to get anything against a Southampton side who will be desperate to get back to winning ways.

Burnley injury concerns: Michael Duff is a big doubt with a calf problem and only has a 25 per cent chance of featuring at this time.

Burnley absences: Stephen Ward is out with an ankle injury and Matt Taylor remains side-lined with an Achilles problem. Sam Vokes is unavailable due to lack of match fitness.

Southampton injury concerns: Toby Alderweireld is a doubt with a hamstring injury but should recover in time while Morgan Schneiderlin is fighting to be fit.

Southampton absences: Jack Cork, Jay Rodriguez and James Ward-Prowse are unavailable.

Predicted starting line-ups:

Burnley – Heaton, Trippier, Keane, Shackell, Mee, Boyd, Marney, Jones, Arfield, Ings, Barnes

Southampton – Forster, Clyne, Alderweireld, Fonte, Bertrand, Davis, Wanyama, Schneiderlin, Tadic, Mane, Pelle
