Southampton welcomed Burnley to St Mary’s Stadium on Sunday for the 2018/19 Premier League opener.

Both sides battled to a scoreless draw on the day and it’s fair to say Burnley had the better of large parts of the match, but we had positives of our own with a few debutants on the day given the summer arrivals of Jannik Vestergaard, Stuart Armstrong, Mohamed Elyounoussi and Danny Ings.

Ings was the man who stole the show for many on social media as they reacted to the game following the full-time whistle.

Beginning on the bench, Ings joined Elyounoussi as a 56th-minute substitute and he had a marked impact on the pitch when he came on and it bodes well for the future. The 26-year-old has come in on an initial loan deal but the expectation is that will become permanent in either the January window or next summer.

Plenty of positive takeaways from the game, now the trick is to do it from the beginning next time we take to the pitch and register those first three points in the table.
