Game Report

Highlights

Burnley got their campaign off to a flyer with a comfortable home win. They scored 3 times in 11 minutes as Southampton were brushed aside in the second-half.

Detail

The Saints started the stronger and could have gone ahead early on. Debutant Che Adams couldn't get enough contact on the ball to turn in a Yan Valery cross.

The remainder of the first-half was a fairly even contest with Gudmundsson coming close for Burnley and Redmond for the Saints. VAR was also in action to correctly confirm an offside in the build-up to a Chris Wood goal.

Shortly after the hour mark Burnley struck the opener. Ashley Barnes with a well taken finish after Saints defender Vestergaard misjudged the flight of the ball.

The Saints began to lose their shape and 6 minutes later they found themselves 2 down, Barnes added his second with a side-footed volley unmarked from a teasing Pieters cross.

With the Saints still reeling from the two goals in quick succession, they were firmly put out of their misery five minutes later. Gudmundsson curling in a superb solo effort to end the contest.

Summary

Burnley will be delighted to get off the mark and thoroughly deserved their victory. They will again be a difficult to team to beat under Sean Dyche especially at home. Southampton fell apart in the second-half and will need to improve defensively as Burnley were allowed far too much time and space for their goals.
