- Cork goal disallowed
- Hart, McCarthy star
- Ings debuts off bench
Southampton couldn’t find a way past Joe Hart, and Burnley’s only successful effort was ruled offside as the Saints and Clarets drew 0-0 at St. Mary’s on Sunday.
Danny Ings made his debut as a substitute, and was deprived a chance from the spot when a stoppage time stamp on his leg went uncalled.

Chris Wood nodded a tame header to Saints goalkeeper Alex McCarthy within 90 seconds of kickoff.
Mario Lemina fouled Johann Berg Gudmundsson yards outside the 18 to give Burnley a promising free kick.
McCarthy was soon forced into a difficult save on Aaron Lennon, as the hosts were not impressive to open the match.
Saints finally got a chance in the Burnley end, with Lemina forcing Joe Hart to tip over the bar. And the move helped swing the pendulum in Southampton’s favor. A few Stuart Armstrong corners followed, and Oriol Romeu blasted a 42nd minute just wide of the frame.

Southampton asked more questions in the second half, and substitutes Mohamed Elyounoussi and Danny Ings both boosted the energy.
Lemina headed another Elyounoussi corner on goal, but Hart made another save. Ings slipped Elyounoussi on goal, and former Basel man made a cutback before James Tarkowski blocked his effort.
