High-flying Burnley will host a struggling Swansea City at Turf Moor on Saturday.
The Clarets have defied expectations in the first quarter of the season, and they find themselves in an unlikely seventh spot with 19 points – level on points with the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool.
Sean Dyche’s side have lost only two games this season – against Manchester City and West Bromwich, and they have picked up points against the likes of Chelsea, Tottenham and Liverpool.
Clarets’ resolute defence has laid the foundation of their impressive form this season, as they have conceded just nine goals in their 11 games.
Meanwhile, the Swans are currently on a three-game losing run in the league and have slipped down to the 19th spot. In their last game, they lost 1-0 to Brighton and Hove Albion at Liberty Stadium.
Swansea haven’t been terrible on the defensive front, but they have failed to replace the goals of Fernando Llorente. They have managed to score just seven goals until now this season.
It appears that it will be another relegation battle for the Welsh side, and we don’t see them getting anything from this game.
Last season, the Swans completed a double over their opponents and won the corresponding fixture 1-0.
