A disappointing afternoon in West London as Saints fall to a 3-1 defeat at Stamford Bridge.
Yellow Card for Moussa Djenepo (Southampton)
Yellow Card for Mohammed Salisu (Southampton)
Salisu is in the book for his challenge on Werner.
Chelsea make it three
At the third time of asking Chelsea get their third of the afternoon. Lukaku and Azpilicueta both have shots bounce off the bar before Chilwell recovers the ball. He strikes towards goal and it looks as though McCarthy has it cleared but the technology says otherwise. Surely that's game over at Stamford Bridge?
Ben Chilwell (88’) | 3 – 1
Southampton substitution: Mohamed Elyounoussi replaces Nathan Redmond
Last roll of the dice from Hasenhüttl.
Werner on the scoresheet
A classy goal from Chelsea. Azpilicueta sends the ball across goal to Werner. There's no way he's missing from there.
Timo Werner (83’) | 2 – 1
Chelsea substitution: Ross Barkley replaces Ruben Loftus-Cheek
Chelsea looking for the winner
Great feet from Mount who releases towards goal under pressure from the Saints defence but it's a comfortable save for McCarthy.

Exceptional goal-keeping from McCarthy
That was vital from McCarthy. Werner has yet another opportunity on goal and it looks almost set to go in but McCarthy somehow finds the block to keep it all square.
Saints change formation
With Saints back on level terms, Romeu has dropped back to see five in defence.
This guy ❤️
Energetic start from Mount
Just moments after coming on to the pitch Mason Mount whips in a fantastic ball to Chilwell but Lukaku knocks it behind for the goal kick.
Chelsea substitution: Mason Mount replaces Callum Hudson-Odoi
Saints search for a second
Adam Armstrong charges forward for Saints, he's got Tella on his left but Armstrong goes solo and his shot is deflected behind for a corner by Thiago Silva.

Bednarek there to clear
Werner is desperate to seek retribution after his first-half goal was disallowed, he looks threatening towards goal but Bednarek makes another important block to send the ball behind for a corner.
Chelsea searching for a second ✌️
It doesn't take long for Chelsea to launch an attack on goal in this second half but Werner's shot is collected by McCarthy with ease.
Back underway at Stamford Bridge
Chelsea get things restarted here in West London. Can Saints pull it back?
Southampton substitution: Ibrahima Diallo replaces Theo Walcott
HALF TIME: Chelsea 1-0 Saints
It's been a rollercoaster first-half here at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea find the back of the net three times but Chalobah's goal is the only one that stands as we head into the break. Still all to play for in West London as Saints will look to rebuild in the second.
Yellow Card for (Chelsea)
Thomas Tuchel finds himself in the book.
VAR Decision: Goal awarded for Chelsea [Timo Werner] was cancelled
Timo Werner finds the back of the net at Stamford Bridge and Chelsea are certain they've doubled their lead but hold on, this one is going to VAR! Azpilicueta brings down Walker-Peters to claim back the ball in the build up to the attack and this goal is ruled out! The one goal advantage remains.
Romeu stands firm 💪
Chelsea continue to pile the pressure on the Saints defence but Romeu is there with an impressive defensive display to block Werner's hurtling ball.
VAR Decision: Goal not awarded for Chelsea [Romelu Lukaku] was confirmed
Chelsea have the ball in the back of the net again but the flag goes up almost instantly. VAR confirms that Lukaku was offside before he found the back of the net.
Yellow Card for Oriol Romeu (Southampton)
Romeu picks up a yellow card for his challenge on Kovacic.
How did that not go in?
A beautiful piece of play from Walker-Peters who crosses a fantastic ball into Walcott. There's not enough power on the header to find the back of the net but that was superb from Walker-Peters.
Smart from Walker-Peters
Loftus-Cheek charges forward for Chelsea but his ball into Werner is perfectly intercepted by Walker-Peters.
Chelsea hit the counter
The ball falls perfectly for Timo Werner as Chelsea hit the counter attack. He tries to cross the ball into Lukaku who is waiting in the box but Mohammed Salisu intercepts and puts the ball behind for a corner.
Vital save from McCarthy
Chilwell gets within inches of McCarthy's goal but an acrobatic effort sees the ball cleared.

That was CLOSE 🥵
A superb strike from Ward-Prowse who fires a ball towards Mendy from just outside of the box. Some fans thought it was in but his shot is inches wide.
Better from Saints

Chelsea electric 🔌
That Lukaku - Azpilicueta - Werner link-up is looking seriously threatening.
Saints search for an equaliser

Chelsea nearly get a second
Superb defending from Jan Bednarek who found himself shoulder-to-shoulder with Romelu Lukaku just inches away from goal. Another corner to Chelsea.
Chelsea take the lead
Azpilicueta's cross is deflected off of Kyle Walker-Peters as Chelsea are awarded the corner. Ben Chilwell's corner kick is flicked on by Ruben Loftus-Cheek before Trevoh Chalobah nets his second goal of the Premier League season.
Trevoh Chalobah (8’) | 1 – 0
Star boy looking to shine? ✨
A beautiful run from Nathan Tella from the centre of the pitch, it amounts to nothing but an encouraging start from the youngster.
Slick from Chelsea
César Azpilicueta finds space on the wing to release Timo Werner who executed a perfectly timed run but Alex McCarthy is there to knock Werner's shot on goal behind for a corner.
