Southampton vs Chelsea LIVE: Kai Havertz adds to Timo Werner, Mason Mount, Marcos Alonso strikes

The Blues are off to Southampton in hopes to bounce back from a disappointing defeats against Brentford and Real Madrid

Thomas Tuchel has made it clear that he expects more from his side, now the Blues have to react. They lost 4-1 to Brentford at home and were fortunate to see Arsenal drop points and fail to close the gap on the Premier League table.
The fight to finish third is back on, and Chelsea will be hoping to earn all three points against Southampton. The Saints will be without Armando Broja as he is not eligible to play against his parent club. Broja has been on loan to Southampton this season and has become an important asset to their attack.

It was last year in October when Chelsea got their Premier League win against Ralf Hassenhutl’s side. Trevoh Chalobah, Timo Werner and Ben Chilwell were all on the score sheet, and the match ended 3-1. A total of 20 shots, nine on target and 62% possession for the Blues made it an enjoyable watch for the Chelsea fans. Considering their current form, can they match this energy this afternoon?

Chelsea will be hoping to earn their third win of the season over Thomas Frank’s side and second following an international break after Ben Chilwell’s strike separated the sides in October. The Blues could only muster five shots on target that afternoon as Brentford bombarded their goal. However, the Bees will hope to capitalise more efficiently with their efforts this afternoon.

Follow all of the action from the game below with Adam Newson, Scott Trotter and Anita Abayomi, who bring every moment up to and beyond kick-off at 3pm.

Half Time Thoughts…

Well, it looks like Thomas Tuchel has got the reaction that he asked for!

The Blues have turned up in the first half and all has gone to plan. Alonso is back on the scoresheet along with Mason Mount. Kai Havertz, showing up as usual.

Timo Werner is the talking point of the half, however! 3 unfortunate misses for the German. He should at least have had a hat trick by now. He sure knows how to work the Southampton back line.

That’s 4 goals in 4 starts against the Saints.

Hoping for another goal for Werner, he’s itching for it.

The backline has barely had much to do. Let’s see if Antonio Rudiger is up for another 30-yard screamer today.

It’s looking positive for the Blues.
