  • Former Burnley striker Danny Ings scores early on to give Saints the lead
  • Chris Wood appeals for a penalty turned down
  • Chris Wood goal in the second half ruled out for offside

Sean Dyche welcomes Southampton to Turf Moor hoping to secure all three points as his side play at Turf Moor for the first time this season. 

Southampton were the visitors on the opening day last season and left Turf Moor pointless after being brushed aside 3-0.

Has Nick Pope suffered a cut to his hand?

Our photographer at the game has just taken this snap of the Clarets number one with a noticeable cut on his thumb, hopefully it’s something and nothing.

Southampton, lucky side?

Burnley and Southampton make their way out, Burnley in claret and blue with Southampton in their white away kit with a red sash.

Thankfully Nick Pope appears to have recovered from the cut to his hand suffered in the warm up.

We’re underway at Turf Moor, Southampton get us started.

Just four minutes on the clock and the visitors are ahead.  Che Adams advances into the box and towards Nick Pope, he cuts it back to Ings who smashes home first time, not the start the Clarets would have wanted.
