After falling behind 2-0 to Burnley at home and facing the possibility of an 11th Premier League loss in 12 games, Danny Ings inspired a comeback that could not only put an end to any fears of being drawn into a relegation battle, but also give the club renewed momentum ahead of an FA Cup semi-final against Leicester City.
Burnley fashioned the best early opportunities as both Chris Wood and Matej Vydra hit the scoresheet.Wood put Burnley ahead from the penalty spot and it was soon 2-0 when Wood rose to head on a long clearance and Matej Vydra surged behind the Southampton defence to shoot past Forster.
The comeback began when Ward Prowse powered forward from the centre and fed Ings who dissected Burnley's defence with a perfect through ball which Armstrong fired beyond Nick Pope.It was not long when Ings drew Southampton level following a wonderful individual solo finish.
The comeback was then completed when Walcott picked Redmond who controlled his volley well and fired past Pope.
