Southampton cruised through to the knockout stages of the inaugural ePL Finals on both the PS4 and the Xbox.

The tournament at London's Gfinity Arena features players representing each of the 20 Premier League clubs with Saints pair Venny and Rusher both safely navigating the group stages.

PS4 representative Venny made an emphatic start, cruising to a 7-0 win over Liverpool's Darioshkrowner before following up with a tense 2-1 victory over Group D's top seed, Paps of Arsenal.

 

Venny guaranteed his place in the knockout rounds, beating West Ham's RUSTEM192 4-1 and seeing off Newcastle's JWG2kk 5-4.

With a tough act to follow, Xbox representative Rusher made a similarly storming start by seeing of JoeEvo of Wolves 5-3 and Burnley's Brad_ColstonBFC 6-4.

 

Rusher then came up against Arsenal's much-fancied Tass and battled to a 2-2 draw, taking the game to penalties before ultimately claiming the three points, winning the shootout 3-0.

 

Rusher then drew his final group game 4-4 with Painter97 of Huddersfield. Rusher lost the shootout this time, but had already sealed his place in the knockout round.
