Chelsea will stay top of the Premier League until Sunday evening at least, following their 3-1 win over Southampton on Saturday.

The Blues were looking to bounce back at Stamford Bridge, following back-to-back defeats against Manchester City and Juventus.

And they started sharply, with Trevoh Chalobah making it 1-0 with a diving header.

However, Ben Chilwell gave a penalty away, with James Ward-Prowse sending Eduoard Mendy the wrong way.

The game changed in Chelsea’s favour, after Ward-Prowse was shown a straight red for a hard tackle on Thiago Silva.

Timo Werner and Chilwell both scored in the last ten minutes to seal the win.

Thomas Tuchel’s men now have 16 points after seven fixtures.
