CHELSEA 1-0 SOUTHAMPTON 18. Wonderful play from Chelsea once again, Werner plays a first time pass to Pulisic inside the penalty area, he looks to pull the ball back across goal but Vestergaard was there to block. Chelsea corner and Chilwell is going across to take it. CHELSEA 1-0 SOUTHAMPTON 17. Chelsea are on top, their pass and move is proving very difficult for Southampton to deal with. Havertz is floating across the three behind the striker, picking up the ball and passing confidently. CHELSEA 1-0 SOUTHAMPTON 16. Werner has been rather lively inside the opening 16 minutes, he looks way happier playing down the middle. He's off the mark in the Premier League! CHELSEA 1-0 SOUTHAMPTON 14. Moments after he has one chalked off, he dummies Chilwell's pass selling the centre-back a dream, he dribbles across the face of the penalty area before slotting it into the bottom left! What a goal! GOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLL!!!! WHAT A FINISH BY TIMO WERNER!!! UNREAL!! CHELSEA 0-0 SOUTHAMPTON NO GOAL! 13. Lovely build-up play from Chelsea on the left hand-side, Chilwell floats a ball into the penalty area which was met by Werner, the keeper doesn't do enough to stop it from hitting the back of the net. The referee immediately looks to his linesman who has hit flag up for offside, Werner very nearly had his first Premier League goal. CHELSEA 0-0 SOUTHAMPTON 11. Southampton are enjoying their first decent spell of possession, they have Chelsea pinned inside their own half. The ball works its way out wide to the left, Bertrand's cross is mishit by Christensen and it almost falls for Adams. CHELSEA 0-0 SOUTHAMPTON 10. Chilwell wins a free-kick inside the opposition half after a strong challenge from Walker-Peters. Chelsea take the free-kick short and instantly go back towards their defence to reset and build an attack from the back.
. Southampton are showing the pace they do have, they may not be seeing much of the ball, but they have willing runners in Walcott, Redmond, Ings and Adams… all quick. CHELSEA 0-0 SOUTHAMPTON SAVE! 7. The ball breaks for Adams on the edge of the Chelsea area, he drives his first time shot low and hard straight at Kepa! Adams needs to do better there, he was one-on-one with the keeper and he seemed happy enough to just hit the target. He had the time to take a touch and set himself. CHELSEA 0-0 SOUTHAMPTON 6. Mount plays Werner down the left side of the Southampton penalty area, the striker snaps at his shot and sends it wide of the far post. Brilliant play from Chelsea, the interchanging frontline works well for them. CHELSEA 0-0 SOUTHAMPTON 5. Chilwell receives the ball just inside the opposition half, he whips in a ball from deep which is met by Pulisic who cannot guide his header on target. Chelsea are switching play fast and effectively, it is suiting Chilwell! CHELSEA 0-0 SOUTHAMPTON 4. Encouraging start from the Blues, they've had a couple shots on the Southampton goal in the opening minutes. CHELSEA 0-0 SOUTHAMPTON FANTASTIC DOUBLE SAVE! 2. Chilwell is picked out in space on the edge of the Chelsea area, he drills his shot low towards the bottom right corner but McCarthy saves with a strong hand. The ball then falls to Havertz who has an effort saved by the keeper! CHELSEA 0-0 SOUTHAMPTON 1. Havertz has his first touch, he intercepts Bertrand's throw and plays it wide to Chilwell on the left. Big game for Havertz today, he is yet to score a Premier League goal for Chelsea, same for Werner. CHELSEA 0-0 SOUTHAMPTON 1. Vestergaard immediately go long in search of Redmond on the left flank, the ball has too much power on it and it goes out for a Chelsea throw. Good little tactic to get themselves up the pitch early on. CHELSEA 0-0 SOUTHAMPTON 1. Southampton get us underway! HERE COME THE TEAMS Chelsea are making their way out onto the pitch, wearing their blue home kit. Southampton follow from a different tunnel in the ground, wearing the white and red. Kick-off to follow shortly! PASSING IN STYLE Chelsea have made a league-high 81 10+ open play pass sequences in the Premier League this season – however, Southampton have allowed their opponents to make just 11 such sequences this term, fewer than any other side. TEN TO GO Just over ten minutes to go until kick-off, let's hope we get an action packed game like we just saw at Goodison Park! VAR drama, tackles flying in……… not long to go! LONDON-BOUND The Saints are in town. FORTRESS Since the start of last season, no side has conceded fewer home Premier League goals than Chelsea (18, excluding the promoted clubs).
