Burnley picked up their fourth point of the Premier League season on Saturday as they drew 2-2 at Southampton.
Maxwel Cornet's brace was not enough for Sean Dyche's men to claim a first league win of 2021/22.
The Clarets have drawn four and lost five, with Brentford at home and a trip to Stamford Bridge prior to the international break in November.

This weekend's encounter represented a great chance for Bunnley to pick up three points, but it wasn't to be as goals from Tino Livramento and Armando Broja denied them of that elusive victory.
Here is how the national media saw the game.
Maxwel Cornet’s first of a St Mary’s double was only the club’s sixth goal this campaign - a worrying enough statistic in itself - but it was the sixth time Burnley had been ahead in a match. That they departed the south coast still winless told a story.
They simply never looked like winning this one after taking the lead against the run of play. Southampton should have scored more than the two goals that came courtesy of Tino Livramento and Armando Broja - Nathan Redmond’s failure to tap into an open net from two yards will surely be the miss of the season - and only Cornet’s brilliant second salvaged a point for the visitors.
The one shining light was Cornet, a £13 million summer signing from Lyon, who now has three goals from three starts at his new club including a stunning strike on the turn from 25 yards after Southampton had gone 2-1 up.
With four Champions League goals against Manchester City to his name, the Ivorian will be crucial if Burnley are to stay in the top flight this campaign. It was no wonder Dyche described him as the “bit of difference we have been searching for”.

Only one team have lost more Premier League games in 2021 than Burnley (17). You guessed it - Southampton are out in front on 18.
Between them, these sides have won just once in their past 23 matches. Perhaps it should come as no surprise, then, the lengths to which both went to throw away a game they each had within their grasp.
The only shock? Neither did quite enough to succeed. Instead, after 90 bonkers minutes, spoils were shared along with a sense of what might have been.

Ralph Hasenhüttl had forewarned of the foolishness of judging a book by its cover, after admitting his perception of Burnley has changed somewhat in recent years and this match provided stirring evidence of just why. A game between teams that finished the afternoon 16th and 18th was unlikely to be high on the agenda for too many neutrals but they served up some entertaining fare, even if at times it was for the wrong reasons.
A lively contest was bookended by two fine goals by Maxwel Cornet but the reality is Burnley are still searching for their first Premier League win of the season, despite rallying to prevent the impressive Armando Broja from being Southampton’s match-winner for the second week running.
Cornet gave Burnley the lead with a glancing header from a delicious Matt Lowton cross but they were unable to use it as a platform and the hard truth is that no top-flight team has dropped more points from winning positions than the 12 they have this season.
