CLARETS reporter Tyrone Marshall hands out the ratings for Burnley's goalless draw at Southampton.

Joe Hart 7

Made a few routine saves and kicked well as the St Mary’s crowd looked to rattle him. Looks to have settled in well.

Matt Lowton 7

One dangerous second half delivery nearly set up Gudmundsson. Used the ball well, an option on the right and kept it moving.

James Tarkowski 8

Defensively strong in the final 15 minutes as Southampton turned up the pressure, making several clearances and winning his headers.

Ben Mee 7

Almost scored an own goal under pressure in the second half. Overhead kick at the other end almost set Hendrick up

Stephen Ward 6

Volleyed a chance straight at McCarthy. Rarely troubled defensively but not seen as often going forward

Johann Berg Gudmundsson 8

Picked up where he ended last season. Calm and confident on the ball, looked creative. Close with a free-kick

Jack Cork 7

His disallowed goal in the first half should have stood. Started really well but looked to tire as the game wore on

Ashley Westwood 8 (Man of the Match)

A display full of energy. Ran the game in the first half as Burnley poured forward. Plenty of short, crip passes, both forward and back when required. Fine ball to find Cork for disallowed goal and a crucial clearance off the line for good measure

Aaron Lennon 6

Should also have scored in the first half after latching on to Hoedt’s header. Didn’t get much change out of Bertrand

Jeff Hendrick 6

Bright in the first hour before fading, but had to score when presented with a golden chance right on the stroke of half-time

Chris Wood 6

Made some good channel runs and linked the play well while Burnley were on top, but couldn’t find the clear chance in front of goal


Sam Vokes for Wood (73)
Ashley Barnes for Hendrick (76)
Charlie Taylor for Gudmundsson (87)
