Our football match prediction:
Burnley are a team with two faces. The Clarets are tough to beat at home, but their away record is anything but good. Sean Dyche’s men have already recorded seven wins at their Turf Moor this term, whilst they suffered their eighth defeats of the season on Monday, with the team losing to ten-man Manchester City at Etihad Stadium. Anyhow. Burnley are on the right track to secure the Premier League survival and a win over Southampton in Saturday’s football game would help them move one step closer to meeting the goal. The Saints have been having their ups and downs in the English top flight this season and they are only one point clear of Burnley in the Premier League standings. The two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment and we predict that they are going to share the spoils on Matchday 21.
Highlighted Player (Tom Heaton):
Tom Heaton is a goalkeeper who was born on 15 April, 1986 in Chester, England. Heaton played for Manchester United during his youth career, but he did not make a first-team debut for the Old Trafford outfit. During his period at Manchester United he played for several lower-league clubs on loan (Swindon Town, Royal Antwerp, Cardiff City, QPR, Rochdale, Wycombe Wanderers). After ending his loan spell with Wycombe Wanderers in 2010, the goalkeeper signed a contract with Cardiff City. After making 29 appearances for Bristol City in the Championship, he joined Burnley in 2013. He played for the Clarets in the 2014/2015 Premier League campaign, but he did not help the team avoid relegation to the English second tier. However, Tom Heaton and his teammates returned to the top flight at the end of the 2015/2016 campaign. Heaton made his England debut in a warm-up game against Australia in 2016 as the Three Lions recorded a 2-1 win over the Socceroos, while he was also a member of the squad that represented the country at the Euro 2016 finals.
Highlighted Team (Southampton):
Southampton are an English football club that have been playing their home games at St. Mary’s Stadium since 2001. The Saints were based at The Dell in the past and the capacity of Southampton’s new stadium is 32,505. Southampton wear red and white striped shirts and the colour of the team’s away kit is navy and green. The Saints have yet to win the Premier League trophy, but they did well to clinch the FA Cup title back in 1976, while participating in the final of the prestigious competition in 1900, 1902 and 2003. Southampton outplayed Manchester United in the 1976 FA Cup final and that is probably the club’s greatest victory ever. The club are well known for their football academy and Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale is one of the players who began their football carrier at the St. Mary’s Stadium outfit. Southampton’s fiercest rivals are Portsmouth and the two teams square off against each other in the South Coast Derby.
