Southampton remained unbeaten in the Premier League in 2019, but Burnley snatched a point away with a penalty late in added time.

Nathan Redmond scored his sixth goal in his last 10 games before Marcus Barnes levelled from the spot in a 1-1 draw after a handball was assessed against Jack Stephens in the 93rd minute.

Southampton took their deserved lead nearing the hour mark through a brilliant piece of individual effort from Redmond, who shifted the ball onto his right foot and fired a low shot into the corner.

Danny Ings, who was forced off through injury on 27 minutes, put Southampton on the front foot when he was denied one-on-one in the opening stages.

Southampton would twice be halted from a breakthrough with Shane Long having a shot cleared off the and James Ward-Prowse coming close to a fourth goal in as many games, before Redmond fired the visitors ahead.

Alex McCarthy preserved the lead with a point-blank stop against Barnes, before the forward struck the crossbar on 83 minutes.

Having been controversially denied a penalty in the first-half, it seemed just that Burnely would level from the spot after the ball struck Jack Stephens on the arm during an aerial battle with Peter Crouch.
