Southampton 0-6 Chelsea


Southampton 0-6 Chelsea


Chelsea head back to London, back to winning ways and then some. The European champions dismantled Southampton in the first half and were still the better side in the second. Mount and Werner grabbed two goals each. Alonso and Havertz scored too. The Saints have to take another heavy defeat on the chin.

Starting Lineup:

SOUTHAMPTON (4-3-1-2): Fraser Forster;

Valentino Livramento, Jan Bednarek, Mohammed Salisu, Kyle Walker-Peters;

James Ward-Prowse (c), Oriol Romeu, Stuart Armstrong;

Mohamed Elyounoussi; Adam Armstrong, Che Adams.


CHELSEA (3-4-3): Edouard Mendy;

Andreas Christensen, Thiago Silva, Antonio Rüdiger;

Ruben Loftus-Cheek, N’Golo Kante (c), Mateo Kovacic, Marcos Alonso;

Mason Mount, Kai Havertz, Timo Werner.


Alonso gives Chelsea the lead after an end-to-end start! The Spaniard lashes left-footed into the bottom right corner after Mount picks him out in the box.

Mount finds the net with a daisycutter from the range! Loftus-Cheek’s low cross is cut out and comes out to the Englishman just outside the box. Mount takes a touch to control the ball and sends it skidding into the bottom left corner.

Chelsea is playing like they have a point to prove here! Ward-Prowse’s misplaced header leaves the Saints in trouble. Werner darts behind, take Forster wide, and slots past him into the empty net.

SOUTHAMPTON 0-4 CHELSEA! Werner is hugely unlucky not to grab his second goal of the game after skipping past Walker-Peters in the box and slamming the right-hand post. Havertz is on hand to convert the rebound.

Southampton’s beating hasn’t finished yet. Werner nabs his second goal of the game, calmly converting the rebound after Forster saves Kante’s drive from the middle of the box.

This is way too easy for Chelsea. Pulisic lashes Alonso’s fizzed cross straight at Forster. He can’t save it entirely, though, and it pops up for Mount, who slots it home. Southampton must be getting nervous now.

So, what’s next?

Chelsea will return to action next week with renewed confidence, while Southampton will have to find a way to avoid ending the season on a sour note.
