Chelsea down Southampton to keep pressure on title rivals

Chelsea forward Alvaro Morata in action against Vidi in the UEFA Europa League on 4 October 2018 Hazard unconvincing: Now I am fine but in two months it could be different

The win took Chelsea temporarily top of the Premier League, but the worst place they can enter the global break is second following Liverpool and Manchester City's encounter at Anfield.

Barkley was on the very fringes of Antonio Conte's Chelsea team, in which the system shackled star performer Hazard, but the pair are thriving now and combined to devastating effect at St Mary's. Olivier Giroud was fouled inside the area, but only a corner kick was awarded.

Chelsea went back up the other end with Hazard creating an opportunity for substitute Morata, but the Spaniard fired his effort from 10 yards too close to McCarthy.

Regardless of what would happen at Anfield later in the day, Chelsea ensured they would be the day's big winners with victory here.

The Blues have now won nine of their 11 games across all competitions this season, with league draws against West Ham and Liverpool the only blights on their record, BBC reports.

In between, Ross Barkley, recently recalled to the England squad, made it a week to remember by scoring his first goal for the London club.

Toddler Shreds $1K in Cash
Ben and Jackee Belnap said they had been saving up cash to pay Ben's parents back for University of Utah football season tickets. A Holladay family is out more than a grand after their toddler gets his hands on their football season ticket money.


Asked if he would sign a new contract if Chelsea were to offer him one, Fabregas replied: "Yeah I'm very open about it". The Blues now sit just two points behind both Manchester City and Liverpool, but while they're unbeaten in 10 games across all competitions, both of their last two league outings ended in frustrating draws.

That philosophy is paying off at Stamford Bridge, with Chelsea temporarily occupying the Premier League summit after dispatching the Saints 3-0. "He is doing well and working hard on the training ground", said Hazard.

FW Oliver Giroud, 8 - Made an excellent foil for Hazard's wizardry.

"The only difference for them to come closer to the likes of Manchester City and trying to challenge them, and Liverpool, and anybody else in this League that is going after the title, is they need more than just Hazard to score goals".

Meanwhile, Southampton head to the game after losing 2-0 against Wolves last weekend in the Premier League.
