Goals from Stoke City goalkeeper Asmir Begovic and Southampton's Jay Rodriguez make it 1-1 at half time.

Southampton's Jay Rodriguez cancelled out a bizarre goal from Stoke City goalkeeper Asmir Begovic to make it 1-1 between the two sides at the break.

The Potters took the lead inside the first minute when Begovic's wind-assisted kick upfield found its way into the Saints' net.

Stoke should have doubled their lead in the ninth minute when the ball fell kindly for Ryan Shawcross six yards out following a corner, only for the defender to scuff his shot.

Southampton almost snatched an equaliser from a corner in the 13th minute, Dejan Lovren's glancing header sailing just a fraction wide of the post.

The Saints' equaliser came four minutes from the break through Rodriguez, who got his head to a James Ward-Prowse cross to make it all square after 45 minutes.
