CHELSEA 3-2 SOUTHAMPTON 67. Just over 20 minutes left in the second half and once again Southampton are trailing Chelsea.

Hakim Ziyech is warming up on the touch-line, he's getting ready to come on for his Chelsea competitive debut. What a player Ziyech is, so exciting to watch! CHELSEA 3-2 SOUTHAMPTON 63. Chelsea's third goal seems to have settled them down a bit, Southampton will be kicking themselves. They fought their way back into the game to throw it away minutes later, Hasenhuttl must be absolutely furious. LUCK Words cannot describe what happened into the build-up to Southampton's equaliser. Kepa at it again is the best way to describe it. Hopefully come full-time we can get the highlights to you so you can see for yourself! Credit: Getty Images CHELSEA 3-2 SOUTHAMPTON 59. What a start to the second half, we've been treated to another Kepa howler and an instant response from Chelsea to get back in front. The German duo have grabbed the goals! CHELSEA 3-2 SOUTHAMPTON 57. Wonderful play down the right hand-side, Werner breaks into the penalty area before laying it to Havertz who tapped it into an empty net. Instant response from Chelsea, they're back in front! GOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAALLLLL!!!! HAVERTZ WITH THE GOAL!!!!! CHELSEA ARE BACK IN FRONT INSTANTLY!! CHELSEA 2-2 SOUTHAMPTON 56. Zouma plays a back pass to Kepa, the ball goes under the keepers foot, Adams' initial shot hits the post- Kepa who is rushing back then hits the ball back off the post causing the ball to fall right back to Adams who fires into the roof of the net! Oh dear, Kepa is at it again! Wish we could show you, too much happening to truly put what happens into words… GOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLL!!!! ANOTHER KEPA HOWLER GIFTS ADAMS A GOAL!!! ABSOLUTE NIGHTMARE!! CHELSEA 2-1 SOUTHAMPTON WHISKERS WIDE! 53. Wonderful build-up play on the edge of the Chelsea are by Southampton, lovely one touch football, the ball eventually breaks to Ings who drives a shot JUST wide of the left post! Southampton can sense another goal coming. CHELSEA 2-1 SOUTHAMPTON 52.
. Southampton have another free-kick in a promising position and yet again it was from Chelsea's sloppy play. CHELSEA 2-1 SOUTHAMPTON 50. Mount does well to release Chilwell down the left hand-side, his first touch lets him down and Ward-Prowse does brilliantly well to get across and clear the danger. Ward-Prowse has been brilliant for the visitors. CHELSEA 2-1 SOUTHAMPTON 49. Good delivery by Ward-Prowse, a Southampton head does get on the end of the free-kick but Kepa easily gathers the ball. Chelsea at times are the masters of their own downfall, dominate the game and then one slip of concentration costs them. Frank Lampard will be hoping his side cut out the mistakes. CHELSEA 2-1 SOUTHAMPTON 48. Sloppy play from Chilwell, he loses possession then proceeds to pull Ward-Prowse down deep inside his own half. Yellow card for his troubles. CHELSEA 2-1 SOUTHAMPTON 47. Good defending from Azpilicueta who did just enough to put Ings off inside the penalty area, Ings' touch lets him down and the ball goes out for a goal kick. CHELSEA 2-1 SOUTHAMPTON 46. Strong opening minute or so from Chelsea, they've held onto the ball well. CHELSEA 2-1 SOUTHAMPTON 45. Chelsea get us back underway! THE TEAMS ARE BACK OUT Both sides are making their way back out onto the pitch ahead of the second half. Chelsea will get us back underway shortly. LINEKER SPEAKS Gary Lineker took to twitter after Timo Werner's world class first half performance. Superb first Premier League goal for Timo Werner. First of many, I suspect. — Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) October 17, 2020 ATTACKING THIRDS Rather balanced build-up from Chelsea across the pitch, mainly due to the quality they have operating across the attacking line. Werner is doing a brilliant job of drifting across the link up with either Pulisic or Mount. Southampton are tending to favour the left hand-side, Havertz was caught in possession in the left channel leading to Southampton's goal just before hand-time. WINNING POSITION Chelsea are unbeaten in their last 81 Premier League games at Stamford Bridge in which they've been leading at half time (W67 D14), since a 3-5 defeat to Arsenal in October 2011. KEY MAN Ben Chilwell has assisted in consecutive Premier League games for the first time since March 2018 for Leicester City.
