Charlie Austin was delighted with the team's performance in Southampton's 3-1 victory over Burnley in the Premier League this afternoon.

Austin scored either side of Nathan Redmond's goal to make it seven games unbeaten for Claude Puel's side.

The striker's brace sees him move up to seven goals in all competitions this season but the 27-year-old was keen for the team to get the praise after a convincing performance.

He said: "It’s all about the team. We’re on a great run at the moment.

"It was a great win, a good team performance and we worked really hard.

"We showed great team spirit and character today. We got the goal and we pushed on. To be honest, it could’ve been four or five."

The victory could've been more convincing had Saints not come up against an in-form Tom Heaton who kept his side in the game.

Southampton had a Premier League high 34 attempts during the match which saw the Burnley 'keeper produce a save of the season contender from Austin's header in the early moments of the game.

"In the first half we missed a couple of chances and we created a lot of chances.

"It could’ve been that kind of afternoon where nothing goes for us but we got the goal and pushed on.

"We kept the ball superb today. We moved the ball very well and when the chances came, we put them away."

Southampton were unable to set a new club clean sheet record after Sam Vokes converted a penalty.

However, Austin believes that the disappointment of conceding after such a long period of time shows the good run of form that the club are on.

"If we can only be disappointed about not keeping a clean sheet for the seventh game that shows we’re on a good run and hopefully we can continue that."
