A dogged but deserving performance delighted Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhüttl on Saturday evening, following a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Burnley at Turf Moor.

It's been over 50 years since Saints managed victory in Lancashire, making the win that much sweeter, coupled with the fact Hasenhüttl's side are now off the mark in the Premier League, earning their first three points of the new season.

Predictably, Danny Ings was the match-winner, supplied by Ché Adams's pull-back following a superb through ball by Kyle Walker-Peters, ending a run of three successive defeats in all competitions.

"It's difficult to play here," the manager reflected. "I think we had a very good performance tonight, especially against the ball and out of possession.

"We defended a lot but deserved to win. We still can do it better; the pressure was getting up and up in the second half.

i think we had a very good performance tonight.

"Yes, the goal was absolutely fantastic play. The deep run from Che was fantastic and the pass back in the area, fantastic goal from us.

"The work against the ball from the strikers was amazing and that was absolutely needed today.

"This time we really tried to play more, keep the ball on the ground and stay protecting our goal. I think I only saw one chance for Burnley.

"We did it much better than the last time we were here, we couldn’t concede late because we deserved to get the three points today."
