Burnley produced one of their finest performances of the season to beat Southampton at Turf Moor and give their hopes of Premier League survival a huge boost.

Burnley, nicknamed the Clarets, won their first match after the sacking of former manager; Sean Dyche, and just their fifth in the league this season, to get to within one point of 17th-placed Everton with six games to play.

Connor Roberts scored a timely first goal for the club when he curled a delightful opener into the far corner and Nathan Collins headed in to double their lead before half-time.

With interim boss Mike Jackson in the dugout, the hosts delivered an impressive attacking display but also defended well to keep Southampton quiet throughout the match.
