Speaking to the BBC's cameras a short time after match day referee Lee Probert blew the final whistle, Southampton manager Mauricio Pellegrino explained.

'We did everything we had to do against an opponent that was defending 90% of the game. We were much better than them in all different aspects of the game apart from efficiency. They had one chance and scored. It is really painful for us, we did everything. The intensity and football was good, but we lost.'

He added.

'I don't want to talk about luck. In this aspect we need to improve our accuracy. Today the spirit of the team and the attitude was really good. We had to use this game as a reference about how I would like my team to play. We deserved more.'

Burnley manager Sean Dyche in his comparitive interview explained.

'I am delighted to be where we are but there are a lot of challenges coming our way. The group know we will have to work hard for every point we get.'


'Fantastic. The two that came on up front were a credit to their professionalism. They came on and really affected the game today and Sam Vokes' header was a fantastic finish. What a header. Southampton are a very technical team with people who can carry the ball. You have to be resolute in your defensive shape. I think it is a very important part of the game. We still have to fight for every chance we get but we are willing to do the graft.'
