Hart aims to keep his place

Joe Hart performed well on his Burnley league debut and said he will work hard to keep possession of the goalkeeper's jersey at Turf Moor.

The keeper moved from Manchester City in the transfer window and has started the season with the Clarets now having three England goalkeepers in their squad.

Tom Heaton was on the bench as Burnley played out a 0-0 draw at Southampton to start the new Premier League season.

They also have Nick Pope who is currently out with a dislocated shoulder but Hart knows that when all three keepers are fit, he faces a fight to keep his place in the starting line-up.

He told the BBC after the goalless draw on the south coast: "We played really well in the first half but they changed it round at half time and pushed us in the second half. I think we're both happy with a point in the end.

"I push myself to the edge in all I do. I'm really pleased to be at this club and to be here permanently. I've walked into a nest of top keepers and I'll have to be on my toes if I want to keep the shirt."

Burnley's season started early due to their involvement in the Europa League and they were the stronger side at St Mary's with Saints keeper Alex McCarthy having to be at his best to deny Aaron Lennon and Jeff Hendrick.

Southampton came into the game more in the second half with new signing Danny Ings coming off the bench to threaten against his old side.

Burnley are back in action in midweek, taking on Istanbul Basaksehir in the second leg of their Europa League qualifying third round second leg, the first game in Turkey finishing goalless.

Sean Dyche's side are 21/20 to win the home leg with Basaksehir 29/10. Burnley are 66/1 to win the Europa League this season while Arsenal are priced at 9/1.
