Southampton recorded its second successive 0-0 draw in a cagey match against West Ham in the Premier League on Tuesday.

Southampton was without manager Ralph Hasenhüttl, who is in self-isolation after a member of his household tested positive for COVID-19.

West Ham manager David Moyes brought on Said Benrahma, Jarrod Bowen and Michail Antonio in the second half in an attempt to find a way through the home defense, but despite some late pressure they were unable to make the breakthrough.

Leeds routed West Bromwich Albion 5-0 on Tuesday for its biggest victory since returning to the Premier League.

Romaine Sawyers’ own goal set the tone for the host before quick-fire first-half goals from Ezgjan Alioski, Jack Harrison and Rodrigo.

Burnley beats Sheffield

Burnley held on after a first-half goal from captain Ben Mee — his first at Turf Moor since 2015 — to beat winless Sheffield United 1-0.

The defender's header in the 32nd minute off a cross from Robbie Brady was just the ninth goal for Burnley this season. Only relegation-threatened Sheffield with eight has scored fewer.

The win gives Burnley breathing room above the drop zone, with five points separating them from 18th-place Fulham.
