Southampton 3-1 Burnley: Five things we learned

What a fantastic performance from Claude Puel’s Southampton.

After a pretty boring first half that saw the game stuck at 0-0, things game to life with Charlie Austin leading the charge against his old side Burnley.

The former QPR forward scored a brace as the Saints secured a 3-1 victory, with the first being a real poacher’s effort in the six yard box.

That was then followed by the best goal of the game as Nathan Redmond rifled home from a corner at the far post, before his strike partner grabbed a second.

Admittedly, it was a penalty, but Austin still managed to dispatch it with ease and that ultimately killed the game off despite Sam Vokes’ late penalty of his own.

A good win for Southampton, then, whilst Burnley struggled.
