Match ends, Southampton 2, Burnley 2.
Burnley boss Sean Dyche said Maxwel Cornet was the "bit of difference we have been searching for" after his two goals earned a point against Southampton at St Mary's.
Cornet had given the visitors the lead before rescuing a draw after the impressive Tino Livramento and Armando Broja turned the game around for Saints.
"I think there were a lot of good things about our performances," said Dyche. "I've been saying that a lot lately but we had two excellent goals by Maxwel.
"We brought him [Cornet] to add to what we do. He had been good but we had to be a bit cautious with him as he cramped a bit with a hamstring issue.
"He gives us that bit of difference we have been searching for."
Livramento headed Saints on level terms after Cornet's opener before Broja scored his second goal in as many games to capitalise on James Tarkowski's mistake.
Cornet's third Premier League goal in as many starts was not enough to lift the Clarets out of the relegation zone and they remain 18th.
Saints drop to 16th after Watford's win at Everton, four points above Burnley.

New signings shine on the south coast
October may be too early for games to be dubbed six pointers, but this one was a 'must not lose' rather than a 'must win'.
Both Southampton and winless Burnley have had disappointing starts to the season, although the former ended their run of seven matches without victory with three points against Leeds in their last outing.
With just four points separating the sides at the wrong end of the table, Burnley started well as Cornet, the club's £12.85m summer signing from Lyon, headed them into the lead from a Matthew Lowton cross.
Saints were sloppy but their main threat came down the right through teenage full-back Livramento, who joined from Chelsea in the summer.
He delivered several testing crosses into the Burnley box before cutting in on his left and hitting the post with a curling effort.
His reward finally came as he rose highest to head Nathan Redmond's corner into the roof of the net, before Chelsea loanee Broja drove at goal and fired his side in front, after Tarkowski played the ball straight to Ibrahima Diallo.
Livramento, 18, and Broja, 20, have played together in the Chelsea academy since the age of nine but Saints are the beneficiaries of the Cobham production machine.
Ivory Coast international Cornet showed his class again as he span his defender to smash in the equaliser, and all three players will be key to their side's chances of moving away from danger this season.
