Carlo Ancelotti’s side came into the fixture off the back of four wins and a draw and sitting top of the table, but in the end they were second best throughout the contest, and were reduced to 10 men for the second week in succession when Lucas Digne was sent off in the 72nd minute.null

The French full-back was given a straight red card by referee Kevin Friend for a crude stamp on Kyle Walker-Peters as the Saints full-back looked to break.

In truth, Digne’s side were already looking to be out of the contest well before that dismissal, with the hosts striking two decisive blows within eight minutes in the first half.
