Southampton failed to win yet another must-win game on Sunday, as they could only manage a 1-1 draw at Brighton.

Mauricio Pellegrino named a strong side, with the likes of Sofiane Boufal and Wesley Hoedt earning recalls. However, the approach remained the same, and Saints were quite easily sussed by a somewhat substandard Brighton side.

Steven Davis put Saints one goal up in the opening seven minutes of the game, with his second of the season. James Ward-Prowse’s free-kick crashed off the woodwork, and Davis was quickest to react in the box.

However, just after the interval, Glenn Murray peeled away to the back post to target the significantly smaller Cedric Soares, before heading the ball to Fraser Forster’s right. The Saints goalkeeper simply had to get across quicker.

It was a match of few chances, and both teams came away with the honours even.
