Moussa Djenepo got over a dreadful first half to inspire Saints to a 1-0 victory at Sheffield United’s Bramall Lane.

Here are five things we learned from the match:

1. It was a game of two halves for Moussa:

Ralph Hasenhuttl decided to play Djenepo on the left side of the defence in the first half and it proved to be a huge mistake.

The Mali international was way out of his depth, through no fault of his own, with the majority of Sheffield attacks coming down his wing.

However, Hasenhuttl switched Djenepo back to attack and it paid off in excellent fashion when he scored from a delightful solo effort to give Saints their second win of the season.

2. VAR is still a Saints fan:

The inception of VAR in this year’s Premier League has already caused plenty of debate, but there’s no doubting it helped Saints out yesterday.

Sheffield thought they had scored through Oli McBurnie, only for it to be ruled out for an offside following a short delay.

It then checked to see whether the home side should have been awarded a penalty in the second half but ruled in Saints’ favour again.

3. What more does Che Adams have to do?

Saints striker Adams is still searching for his first Premier League goal and came agonisingly close on one more than one occasion at Bramall Lane.

The summer signing hit the post in the first half with a strike that had Dean Henderson beaten.

Adams then thought he had finally broken his duck via his head, only for Henderson to scupper across his line and produce an excellent save.

4. Saints set a new record:

The win over Sheffield United made it three away wins on the bounce without conceding a goal.

It stretches back to the victories against Brighton and Fulham, which means that the south coast side have set a new record.

It’s the first time since March 1986 that the St Mary’s outfit have won three away matches on the trot without conceding a goal.

5. Angus Gunn played his part:

There’s no doubting that without Gunn in between the sticks, Saints would have been staring down the barrel of a defeat at Bramall Lane.

Early on, the goalkeeper produced a fine stop to deny David McGoldrick, before a string of excellent saves as the match went on.

Gunn remained in control as his defence sat deeper and deeper throughout the second half and didn’t look like he was going to concede in the final moments.
