Manager, Goalkeeper and Defenders
Ralph Hasenhuttl, Manager – 8
Not to blame for the start his players made but was proven to have got it spot on with selection and changes eventually.
Fraser Forster, Goalkeeper – 8
Commanding performance from the big man, who looks like the leader at the back that this Saints team needs.
Kyle Walker-Peters, Right-Back – 5
Not his usual self and gave away a needless penalty. The consistent high standards that he performs to mean he will be back to form next time out.
Jan Bednarek, Centre-Back – 5
Some crucial clearances when Burnley were building attacks in the latter stages, but he was given a torrid afternoon as the Clarets targeted him with a battering ram in the form of Chris Wood.
Jannik Vestergaard, Centre-Back – 6
A few of his raking cross-field balls and some vital clearances late on in a game where he couldn’t quite influence in his usual way.
Ryan Bertrand, Left-Back – 6
Forced back for the latter stages by Burnley’s right-hand combination of Matt Lowton and Dwight McNeil.
