Joey Barton marked his return to the Premier League and Burnley with the goal which gave the Clarets a 1-0 win against Southampton.
The first half in this tie was painful viewing. Both teams played with their predictable styles, neither side really threatening but the Saints were in the ascendancy. Ward-Prowse had a header well saved by Heaton but that was the extent of the chances. Barton joined the fray in the 73rd minute just before Heaton intervened to stop any onrushing Southampton attackers latching on to Van Dijk's flick-on. Barton beat Forster from 25 yards thanks to a deflection in the wall. Burnley sat back to resist the Southampton onslaught with Heaton executing a few fine late saves from Jay Rodriguez and Josh Sims to earn Burnley's 8th home win of the season. Jan 14 - 12:06 PM
