LONDON, Nov. 23 (Xinhua) -- Southampton moved into fifth place in the Premier League table after a 1-1 draw away to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday night.

On-loan forward Theo Walcott broke the deadlock for Southampton in the 58th minute, scoring his first goal for the club since finding the net against Luton in December 2005.

Substitute Pedro Neto salvaged a point for Wolves in the 75th minute when he crashed the ball home after Raul Jimenez's shot had bounced back off the post.

The evening began with Burnley claiming their first win of the season as Chris Wood's eight minute goal gave them a 1-0 win at home to Crystal Palace.

The Clarets' first goal in over 300 minutes at their Turf Moor stadium was enough to lift Sean Dyche's side above Fulham and out of the relegation zone with five points from nine matches.

Earlier in the weekend, Tottenham moved to the top of the table after a 2-0 win at home to Manchester City, while Liverpool went second with a 3-0 triumph against Leicester City. Enditem
