| sportsbet Goals from Olivier Giroud and Eden Hazard helped Chelsea mount a stunning comeback and secure all three points against a resilient Southampton side.
The Blues found themselves two goals behind an hour into the game. Chelsea had a lot of possession, but Southampton were resilient in defence and took advantage of the visitors’ high line and lack of pace well to attack them on the break.
Dusan Tadic opened the scoring in the 21st minute after some fantastic work from Ryan Bertrand on the left flank. Jan Bedranek then got on the end of a free-kick to tap home the second. Antonio Conte then brought on Giroud and Pedro and that proved to be a masterstroke.
Thibaut Courtois: 7Made five saves over the course of the game, two of them extremely crucial to his side’s victory. Could do nothing for either of the goals as he was let down by his defence. Otherwise had some routine saves to make and had a good game overall.
Cesar Azpilicueta: 6Ran ragged by Ryan Bertrand for the first goal. The Englishman exposed Azpilicueta’s lack of pace with great effect. That seemed to break his confidence and the rest of the first half didn’t go any better for the Spaniard. Looked extremely tired and low on morale for large parts of the game. Worked hard and ensured that the hosts wouldn’t have any luck down his flank in the second half.
Andreas Christensen: 7Perhaps one of his better games in recent weeks. Reinstated into the squad to give Antonio Rudiger a rest and the big Dane didn’t disappoint. Should have done better to prevent Ryan Bertrand’s cross for the first goal. But, he stood his ground well for the most part while coming up against Shane Long. sportsbet
Gary Cahill: 7.5The Chelsea captain had yet another good game at the heart of defence. The Blues’ best centre-back on the afternoon, the Englishman never lost hope and ultimately led his side to a huge morale boosting victory. Won a lot of important challenges, was good in the air and Southampton had no luck from his side.
Davide Zappacosta: 6Found it extremely difficult to deal with Bertrand and Dusan Tadic. Was ineffective going forward and couldn’t help prevent the two goals scored. Caught out of position a few times and often pegged back on the break. Taken off in the 61st minute. Has had and will have better games in a Blue shirt.
Cesc Fabregas: 7Fabregas’s passing was a bit off, but he distributed well and intelligently for the most part. Kept things moving in the middle of the park. Picked up the pace in the second half and even more after Giroud came on. Never seemed to give up and did his fair share defensively.
N’Golo Kante: 8Top class once again. Ended the game with the same high tempo that he started it with. Had most of his teammates been the same way, Chelsea would’ve won this game comfortably. Was almost everywhere and was instrumental in helping Chelsea retain possession and keep the pressure on the Saints in the last half hour of the game.n helping Chelsea retain possession and keep the pressure on the Saints in the last half hour of the game.n possession and keep the pressure on the Saints in the last half hour of the game. sportsbet
