Southampton made it four Premier League defeats in a row as they were beaten 1-0 at Burnley after missing a penalty.Burnley vs Southampton 1-0 all goals video.

Sean Dyche’s side were the better team for large portions of the match, though might count themselves lucky that Michael Keane was not sent off for a crunching tackle that put an early end to Saints youngster Jake Hesketh’s first start.

The visitors had a golden chance to get back on track on the hour when Ryan Bertrand was brought down in the area but Dusan Tadic’s spot kick was saved well by Tom Heaton.

And Ashley Barnes punished them with a deflected shot that wrong-footed Fraser Forster to give the hosts the points at Turf Moor.

Southampton do maintain their fifth-place position in the table but now badly need a boost after a poor performance, while Burnley extended their unbeaten home run to four matches with just their third victory of the campaign and rose above the relegation zone.

Hesketh made his first start for Southampton, replacing Shane Long in the XI, while the visitors’ only other alteration from their 2-1 defeat by Manchester United saw Toby Alderweireld return to the centre of defence in place of Maya Yoshida.

Burnley, unchanged from their loss to QPR, threatened twice in the opening three minutes through Danny Ings, who failed to make a telling connection to George Boyd’s cross before flashing a 25-yard drive narrowly wide.

The home side went close to an opener again in the 26th minute when Forster reacted smartly after Nathaniel Clyne had deflected Kieran Trippier’s cross goalwards under pressure from Barnes.

Hesketh, booked earlier for sliding in late on Heaton, saw his maiden start curtailed in the 32nd minute. Following a heavy collision with Keane, the 18-year-old hobbled off and was replaced by James Ward-Prowse. The substitute was making his first appearance since September, having recovered from a fractured foot, and soon tested Heaton with a low shot five minutes before the interval.

Following a quiet start to the second period, Sadio Mane sent his shot over the crossbar following some neat interplay from Southampton, who then passed up a golden opportunity to break the deadlock.

After Boyd had tripped Ryan Bertrand in the left-hand corner of the area, Tadic struck his penalty well but Heaton was equal to it to preserve his clean sheet.

Burnley responded, Ings forcing a smart low save from Forster before Barnes provided the crucial breakthrough. Ings charged down Clyne’s clearance and the ball ran kindly for his strike partner, who slotted beyond Forster with the help of a deflection off Alderweireld.

Clyne almost atoned for his part in the goal when he fired a drive narrowly past Heaton’s right-hand post three minutes from time but that proved to be Southampton’s last meaningful effort as Burnley held on for a precious victory.
