Charlie Austin scores to level as he scores three goals in two starts for Southampton. The former QPR man cancels out Ryan Fraser’s 42nd-minute opener as he scores in 61st minute to grab a point for Saints.


However, the 30 years old striker later wasted a glorious chance to grab a winner 10 minutes before the time, and so dis Nathan Ake, as the fixture saw no winner.

The long term Liverpool target Virgil van Dijk almost scored in the 12th minute of the game, however his header curled away from the goal.

“For me it’s a stonewall penalty. As soon as Adam Smith got his toe to the ball before the defender I knew he was in trouble and that Adam was going to go over the leg because he had nowhere to go. I’m amazed it wasn’t given. It was disappointing once we’d taken the lead not to win, but we have to acknowledge that Southampton did do very well at times, second half.”, Eddie Howe said.

“I was encouraged with our good reaction. The attitude in general in the second half was much better and it’s good news for us that Charlie continued scoring.”, Mauricio Pellegrino said.
