JERMAINE Jenas felt Burnley played well enough to earn a Premier League win on the opening weekend.

The Clarets had to settle for a goalless draw at Southampton but they were dominant for the first hour of the game.

Jenas said that Burnley's three competitive outings in Europe so far this season saw them enjoy an advantage over the Saints.

"You could almost tell that they already had a couple of competitive games under their belt. They looked a bit sharper, they really took advantage of what seemed like the wrong formation from Southampton," Jenas said on Match of the Day 2.

"I know it's what Mark Hughes turned to at the end of last season, but when they went to a four at the back they looked a lot better.

"But I totally agree with Sean Dyche, at 60 to 70 minutes you're thinking we're going to win it here, they played well enough to."

Fellow MOTD 2 pundit Martin Keown thought the Clarets were fortunate not to conede a late penalty though when Danny Ings went down under Ben Mee's challenge.

"I felt that was a penalty. Mee doesn't get to that ball and Ings does. Mee will know he's got away with one there," he said.

"Burnley kept another clean sheet today, which they will be pleased about after playing in Europe in midweek."

Keown also praised Southampton substitute and former Claret Danny Ings, who came on for the final half hour and immediately improved the hosts.

"Ings is a much better footballer for being at Liverpool," Keown said.

"He links really well, he came quite deep, you don't necessarily want him deep but he's a really good footballer."
