Not a match they will sell copies of but a most welcome three points for Southampton and their manager may well be most pleased by the way they denied their opponents any easy chances to get back on level terms. Thanks for following the game with us.

Offside! A fine finish from Ings after a through-ball from Armstrong but he was clearly offside.
McNeil puts in a couple of crosses from the left flank but cannot find a team-mate.
It is difficult to see Burnley getting a decent chance let alone a goal here.
Michael Obafemi and Nathan Tella replace Che Adams and Moussa Djenepo.
Vydra sets up Taylor to put a cross in but by his standards that is a poor effort and McCarthy catches the ball easily.
Vydra is played through down the inside right channel and with McCarthy coming out will be disappointed that his attempted chip skewed well wide of the target.
Five potential Premier League debutants on the bench for Burnley so the cupboard looks fairly bare for Sean Dyche.
A free kick reaches Dunne's right boot at the far post but he fails to steer the effort back on target.
So close from Taylor. Deep cross from Bardsley is brilliant salvaged at the back post by McNeill and the clearance then falls to Taylor whose effort is superbly tipped away at the near post by McCarthy.
The linesman's flag saves Southampton and Bertrand and McCarthy's blushes there. Bertrand was short on a backpass and McCarthy very slow off his line and Wood beat him to it and clipped the ball into the net. Dyche is fuming VAR haven't looked at the offside which looked very close.
The game has gotten a bit scrappy now. Burnley need to start imposing themselves on the game. This is where the lack of a home crowd hurts.
Djenepo is caught by Bardsley. It looked like he may have been badly hurt but fortunately he returns to play.
A chance for Chris Wood. Westwood picked him out at the back post but the big Kiwi just doesn't get a strong enough connection on his header and McCarthy catches the ball before it reaches the far post.
Burnley get us back underway..
Southampton are half way towards their first league victory at Turf Moor since 1971.
Southampton again threatening. Bertrand gets to the touchline and finds Ings, who's touch is too heavy and it falls to Armstrong, who's touch is even heavier and out for a goal kick.
Ings puts a ball over the top for Adams to chase but it is too far in front of him and Pope comes out to claim.
Burnley fail to clear and Armstrong puts the ball into the six-yard box where Dunne puts the ball behind for a corner - which the hosts deal with comfortably.
A dangerous looking curling free kick from Westwood that is just too high and wide for the far corner. McCarthy certainly feared that was its destination.
Charlie Taylor is always a threat down the left flank and is taken down by Armstrong as he was about to put in a cross and the Saints midfielder gets a deserved yellow card.
Chris Wood goes down in the box under the presence of Bednarek. Referee Andre Marriner waves away the appeals.
Burnley got a free kick 25 yards out for Ward-Prowse's boot colliding with Taylor's midrift but the shot from Brownhill goes straight into the wall.
The left hand side is where Burnley might get some joy, on this occasion Vydra misses with an extravagant overhead kick and then gets up to hit the ball at goal but it is deflected wide.
Vydra pulls a ball to the back post that Brownhill tries to head towards goal and then reacts quickly to aim the rebound at goal but Bertrand blocks his effort.
What a stat this is for Danny Ings.
Southampton dominating possession in Burnley's half and eventually the ball comes to Ings on the left touchline and he cuts back to Adams but he blazes over the bar.
Burnley's best period of play so far, sees them win two corners and Alex McCarthy flap at a cross but they could not get a shot on target.
Bednarek gets his head to a corner but can't steer it towards goal.
GOAL! One attack. One shot. One goal. And of course it comes from Danny Ings. Walkers-Peters plays a superb ball down the inside-right channel for Che Adams who, with Pope coming to meet him, pulled the ball back to the England striker who found the net once more.
A slow start to the game. Neither side mounted an attack yet.
Southampton get us underway...
Ralph Hasenhuttl intimated Vestergaard was brought in specifically due to Burnley's Chris Wood who like the Saints' Danny Ings has continued his good form from the end of last season.
Stephens is in for Burnley but out for Southampton with Jannik Vestergaard replacing Saints defender Jack.
Dale Stephens makes his debut for Burnley tonight. Not a signing to get fans' pulses racing but should provide a solid influence in centre midfield.
Southampton heavily favoured by the bookmakers which, you can only get around 6/4 with them, while Burnley backable at as big as 9/4. The continued absence of their centre back pairing of Ben Mee and James Tarkowski the reason for this you'd think.
The Saints are coming off a strange match against Tottenham when they played really well in the first half could have been well in charge at the interval, only for Son Heung-Min to equalise before the break, and net another just after, as the Korean ended up with four and Spurs a 5-2 win.
There are three defeats between the sides so far this season, the Saints with two of them, so it can only get better for at least one of them today.
And Southampton's starting XI.
Here is how The Clarets are lining up.
