Southampton are still winless this season after coming from behind to draw 1-1 at home to Sunderland.

Goals from Jermain Defoe and Jay Rodriguez - reportedly on the verge of a loan move away from St Mary's - saw a game drawed that will do nothing to quell unrest among fans whose team are still finding their feet under Claude Puel.

Former England striker Defoe earned and took his penalty with ten minutes left in the game, nipping ahead of the sluggish José Fonte and turning the defender who obliged Defoe's cunning move with a lazy challenge. It was not the Portuguese's first such challenge in what was a distracted performance from the European champion.

Rodriguez levelled proceedings five minutes later, dispatching a flowing move reminiscent of Arsene Wenger's Arsenal, whom Claude Puel is understood to be a student of. Substitute James Ward-Prowse expertly turned his defender to feed in Rodriguez, who fired a shot underneath the otherwise impressive Jermain Pickford. Southampton dominated possession and looked incisive in patches, as they continue to adapt to Puel's diamond system.
