Comments:

League position: 8th Southampton conceded their first goal in 612 playing minutes in all competitions. They had recorded only one such longer run in their history (eight consecutive games in 1922). In all competitions in this season, former Burnley forward Charlie Austin had now scored more goals (seven) than Burnley (five). The Saints had now scored in each of their last 14 Premier League games at St Mary’s.

Comments:

League position: 14th Sam Vokes' penalty was the first goal Burnley had scored in their four league and cup away games so far in 2016-17. The Clarets had now lost all three of their Premier League away games in this season and conceded three goals in each game. They had now lost 11 of their last 16 away games in the Premier League (two).
