Chelsea seemed to quickly get rid of Southampton, the number 17 in the Premier League. Shalloba headed the opening goal a few minutes after a corner kick (1-0). Chelsea managed to score two goals in the first half, but both goals were (rightly) not allowed. Lukaku was positioned from an oblique angle. But there was an intrusion. Werner’s hit was denied because it was preceded by a foul by Azpilicueta. 1-0 in the first half.
Chelsea walked out of the locker room waiting, and this situation was also punishing. Chilwell commits a penalty foul on Livramento. Ward Prowse took charge and thrashed Mendy (1-1). The Southampton captain would have taken the full lead moments later when he picked up the red after coming hard on Jorginho.
The ten-man Southampton did not hold out against Chelsea. First, Werner left Lukaku’s beautiful heel unused, but in the last stage the German striker managed to make it 2-1. Lukaku still seemed to score. The Red Devil hit the post from close range, after which Azpilicueta hit the post as well. The third time is lucky, because Chilwell finally got the ball out. Chelsea will win back and lead the Premier League for the time being.
