Chelsea match to the top of the premier league
Southampton having taken a point from the premier league champions, Manchester city and Manchester united, they planned to continue their good form against the big premier league teams, although it all went to shambles when they lost to Chelsea. It was a good first half for Chelsea as they managed to score in the first ten minutes from a bullet header from Chaloba. The Blues failed to score despite having many chances in the first half. In the second half, Southampton got the upper hand when Chillwell fouled Livramento in the box only for the referee to call for a penalty.
The saints captain Ward-prowse took the penalty responsibilities and sent Mendy the wrong way to equalize for the saints. The saints went forward to create more chances, although they received a major blow after a VAR review saw the captain Ward-prowse sent off after an awful challenge on Jorginho. This was a great advantage to Chelsea as they turned the game around on its head and managed to find the net twice after Timo Werner connected with a good pass from Azpilicueta and Chillwell made it 3-1 following a rebounce off the post with a superb volley. Lukaku failed to find the net for Chelsea despite being their top scorer with three goals in the premier league.
Timo Werner managed to score his first goal of the season for Chelsea despite receiving a lot of criticism from the Chelsea supporters after failing to score in many games and being in poor form. The 3-1 win for Chelsea ensured that the top spot in the premier league is firmly in their hands waiting for the game between Liverpool and Manchester City to determine the top spot of the premier league.
