After the crushing disappointment of getting knocked out by Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League earlier in the week, you would have thought that Chelsea would have a point to prove in their Premier League clash with Southampton on Sunday, a chance of giving the Stamford Bridge faithful something to cheer about with a morale-boosting victory to strengthen the Blues’s grip on the title after Man City’s slip-up against Burnley on Saturday.
While it was all going to plan in the early stages with Diego Costa heading home from a Branislav Ivanovic cross, Southampton replied through a Dusan Tadic penalty. The rest of the half was all about the Saints, as Cesc Fabregas and Oscar – so impressive early on in the season – were dominated time and again by the Soton duo of Morgan Schneiderlin and Victor Wanyama.
Southampton on top of every challenge here. The players are so proactive. Messing up a few chances. Chelsea look like Leicester in disguise
