Saints' Premier League woes continue, as wasteful attack silenced at Burnley

Joey Barton made an immediate impact on his return to Turf Moor, coming off the bench to down Southampton.
Joey Barton scores on his Burnley return, and explains he's just happy to be back playing football.

Southampton's miserable Premier League form continued, as Claude Puel's side slumped to a narrow 1-0 defeat at Burnley on Saturday, their fourth straight loss.

Saints' lack of firepower once again came back to haunt them, as they failed to make the most of dominating possession in a match in which Burnley's Tom Heaton was by far the busier goalkeeper. Joey Barton's deflected free kick 12 minutes from time to mark his return to Turf Moor was enough to seal the points for Burnley to the frustration...

Having hardly missed a single Premier League game in the last three seasons Fonte has provided the defensive stability around which much of the club's success has been built.

The captain has also helped Southampton cope with their wave of big-name departures by leading from example and helping maintain team spirit in a rapidly changing dressing room.

Redmond, Southampton win but could rue missed chances vs. Liverpool

Nathan Redmond
Nathan Redmond and Southampton were deserved winners, taking the game to Liverpool at St Mary's.

Southampton took a big step towards their first League Cup final in more than 30 years by upsetting the form book with a 1-0 semifinal first leg win at home against a disappointing Liverpool.

Nathan Redmond's early goal was enough to give the Saints a narrow, but deserved, lead to take to Anfield in two weeks' time.

Redmond and Cedric Soares both missed gilt-edged opportunities to give the Saints a 2-0 lead, which would have put them within touching distance of Wembley.
