Southampton’s Charlie Austin struck twice and Nathan Redmond also scored to secure a comfortable 3-1 win against Burnley at St Mary’s in the Premier League on Sunday.
Austin has now got seven goals in six games but with better control – and against a less impressive keeper than Tom Heaton – he could have had a hat-trick before he scrambled the ball in from close range for the opener after 52 minutes.
Heaton had earlier denied the former Burnley favourite with a marvellous one-handed diving save and also foiled Redmond before the winger backed off a corner and fired cleanly past the keeper for Southampton’s second on the hour.
Austin added the third with a penalty in the 66th after Sam McQueen was tripped while Sam Vokes netted a spot kick for Burnley in the 72nd – their first away goal this season and the first Southampton have conceded in over 10 hours of football.
