BURNLEY, England (AP) - Southampton had a penalty saved and went on to lose its fourth straight Premier League match on Saturday, beaten 1-0 by Burnley at Turf Moor.

Danny Ings set up Ashley Barnes to score the only goal in the 73rd minute with a right-foot shot from the left side of the area.

George Boyd brought down Ryan Bertrand but Dusan Tadic’s penalty was saved in the 60th minute by Burnley goalkeeper Tom Heaton who got both hands to the ball. It was the first time in 30 penalties that Southampton had not scored.

Burnley provisionally moves out of the relegation zone while Southampton stays fifth.

Burnley went ahead when Barnes broke into the box from the left after Southampton had lost the ball from a throw-in. Barnes saw his shot take a slight deflection that wrong-footed Fraser Forster and went in at the near post.



The final chance went to Southampton’s Victor Wanyama deep into injury time, and he could only bury his face in his hands after heading over the bar.
