Chelsea vs Southampton - LIVE!

Chelsea are looking to return to winning ways as they host Southampton at Stamford Bridge this afternoon.

The Blues are facing their first difficult spell of the season after back-to-back defeats, first against Manchester City in the Premier League last weekend and then away to Juventus in the Champions League in midweek.

With title contenders Liverpool and Man City playing each other on Sunday, Thomas Tuchel’s side can ill-afford to waste a golden opportunity to edge ahead of at least one of their major rivals.

Saints have quietly struggled so far this season and are yet to pick up their first victory of the new campaign.

Their 1-0 defeat to Wolves last time out brought to an end a run of four straight draws in the league, though they have at least advanced in the Carabao Cup.

FT: Chelsea 3-1 Southampton

16:55 , Malik Ouzia

It was hard work, but the Blues are back to winning ways.

GOAL! Chelsea 3-1 Southampton | Ben Chilwell 90’

16:49 , Malik Ouzia

That’s the game!

Extraordinary stuff as Lukaku and Azpilicueta both hit the woodwork before Chilwell’s stunning volley is adjudged to have crossed the line before McCarthy can get to it!

GOAL! Chelsea 2-1 Southampton | Timo Werner 85’

16:44 , Malik Ouzia

This one will count!

It’s a massive, massive goal for Chelsea and for Timo Werner and Stamford Bridge erupts.

16:43 , Malik Ouzia

83 mins: Ross Barkley is on in place of Ruben Loftus-Cheek. Thomas Tuchel rolling the dice, though I’m surprised he hasn’t sacrificed a more defensive player against ten men.

16:41 , Malik Ouzia

81 mins: Half a chance this for Mason Mount as he nips inside his man but he can only fire straight at McCarthy.

RED CARD!

16:37 , Malik Ouzia

Yep, it’s red. Perhaps a little unlucky, but the more times you watched the replay, the worse it looked from Ward-Prowse.

16:35 , Malik Ouzia

75 mins: Hmm, VAR is taking a look at this. Ward-Prowse has been booked as he slides in late on Jorginho trying to nick the ball but the fact that Michael Atkinson been called over here suggests that could be about to be upgraded.

16:33 , Malik Ouzia

71 mins: What a save!

Werner exchanges passes with Lukaku and must think he’s scored but McCarthy sticks out a massive hand and blocks it.

16:29 , Malik Ouzia

68 mins: Thomas Tuchel is prowling around down there looking very cross indeed, and not just because he’s getting absolutely soaked.

Loftus-Cheek’s trying to make things happen with a lovely little nutmeg on the edge of the box but Saints get reinforcements across to deal with the danger.

16:25 , Malik Ouzia

65 mins: Time for Mason Mount then - Callum Hudson-Odoi is the man who makes way though, so it’s not exactly altering the balance of the team too much.

James Robson is at Stamford Bridge

16:24 , Malik Ouzia

Former Chelsea starlet Livramento has come back to haunt them. It was his run into the box that forced Chilwell into a clumsy challenge to earn the visitors a penalty, which Ward-Prowse converted.

Let’s see how Chelsea respond. They are bound to be feeling sorry for themselves after the disallowed goal and now this. This is a test.

GOAL! Chelsea 1-1 Southampton | James Ward-Prowse (p) 61'

16:20 , Malik Ouzia

Wonderfully put away!

Ward-Prowse steps up and crashes low into the corner, with Mendy diving the other way.

16:19 , Malik Ouzia

59 mins: Penalty to Southampton!

No doubt whatsoever - Livramento skins Chilwell and is cleaned out!

16:15 , Malik Ouzia

55 mins: Thiago Silva is in the book for what I can only assume Martin Atkinson has deemed an over-zealous challenge because he’s got plenty of the ball as he dives in on Redmond.

16:13 , Malik Ouzia

53 mins: With that half-time change Southampton switched to a back-three and it’s just taking Chelsea a little bit of time to work out the best plan of attack.

Werner is slipped in behind down the right but his low cross towards Lukaku is intercepted by Bednarek.

16:08 , Malik Ouzia

48 mins: Lovely little turn from Hudson-Odoi, who then finds Werner on the edge of the box and he fires low at McCarthy but not far enough in the corner to trouble the ‘keeper.

KICK-OFF!

16:05 , Malik Ouzia

Right then, the teams are back out in the worsening rain at the Bridge, where southampton are making a change.

Ibrahima Diallo is on in place of Theo Walcott.

16:02 , Malik Ouzia

Well, Thomas Tuchel will be urging his side to channel that frustration a little better than he managed to - this game really should be over but Saints have still looked an occasional threat on the break.

James Robson is at Stamford Bridge

15:54 , Malik Ouzia

That looked a pretty harsh decision to rule out Werner’s goal. Was it a clear and obvious mistake? And if it was so clear and obvious, why did the referee have to review it himself?

Very cruel on Werner, who really needs some luck to go his way. Still, it has been a decent half for him and Chelsea’s attack have looked lively.

HT: Chelsea 1-0 Southampton

15:49 , Malik Ouzia

Chelsea will not be happy to only be 1-0 up at the break. Azpilicueta is remonstrating with Martin Atkinson as they go off at the break.

15:46 , Malik Ouzia

45 mins: Thomas Tuchel has been shown a yellow card for his reaction to that decision. He’s absolutely furious.

Goal disallowed!

15:44 , Malik Ouzia

My, oh my. Timo Werner just cannot catch a break at the moment. He thought he’d got a much-needed goal as he gets up really well to head home from Hudson-Odoi’s cross but the VAR, Mike Dean, rules there was a foul much earlier in the build-up by Azpilicueta.

15:41 , Malik Ouzia

38 mins: Great block!

Loftus-Cheek gets to the byline and tries to cross but the ball ricochets into the path of Werner, who hits it first-time and sees Romeu slide in to make a cracking block.

Goal disallowed!

15:37 , Malik Ouzia

35 mins: Chelsea thought they had a second, and a fine second it would have been, too, as Rudiger goes on one of his trademark surges upfield and then plays Lukaku in with a clever reverse pass.

The Belgian lashes him but the flag is up.

15:35 , Malik Ouzia

33 mins: Oh, Theo!

What a chance this is. Walker-Peters again down the left and he flashes across goal, where Walcott gets a head to it ahead of Chilwell but not enough of a head to steer it home.

James Robson at Stamford Bridge

15:34 , Malik Ouzia

Chelsea have looked bright going forward, but on a couple of occasions needed to move the ball quicker. Werner has been guilty of going on the outside when the better choice would have been to play to Lukaku.

15:31 , Malik Ouzia

29 mins: Kyle Walker-Peters has made a couple of encouraging inroads down the left for Southampton but on both occasions his cross has been poor, failing to beat the first man.

At the other end, Chilwell forces McCarthy into another near-post save, this one rather more routine.

15:28 , Malik Ouzia

26 mins: Brilliant save!

Ben Chilwell darts into the box and exchanges passes with Kovacic before firing low at the near post and McCarthy gets a foot out to divert it away.

15:26 , Malik Ouzia

24 mins: A nice little burst up the left from Hudson-Odoi and when he’s wiped out by Bednarek, Thomas Tuchel is over there to pick him up and give him a pat on the back.

15:23 , Malik Ouzia

21 mins: That’s not far away from a leveller!

Saints work it nicely and Walcott cushions into the path of Ward-Prowse, 25 yards out, and he catches it sweetly but fires a yard wide of the post.

15:19 , Malik Ouzia

18 mins: That’s the first time Saints have conceded in the first-half this season, which is quite something given they haven’t won a game yet.

James Robson is at Stamford Bridge

15:16 , Malik Ouzia

Just the start Chelsea needed and Chalobah’s reputation just grows. He is not on the pitch for his goals - playing a back three today - but his header makes him the club’s second highest scorer in the Premier League this season, behind only Lukaku. To think he was set to go out on loan this season.

Loftus-Cheek, who provided the flick-on for his goal, has also impressed early on.

15:12 , Malik Ouzia

11 mins: Chelsea are purring. Kovacic plays a wonderful first-time pass out to Azpilicueta on the right and Lukaku is desperate to get on the end of his captain’s cross but Bednarek slides in a makes a crucial intervention.

GOAL! Chelsea 1-0 Southampton | Trevor Chalobah 9'

15:09 , Malik Ouzia

His second of the season and the Blues have an early lead!

Ruben Loftus-Cheek flicks on the corner at the near post and Chalobah steals in round the back to finish it off.

15:08 , Malik Ouzia

6 mins: Timo Werner’s made a bright start here, getting in down the right and forcing a save from Alex McCarthy before tracking all the way back to the edge of his own box to halt a Saints counter.

James Robson is at Stamford Bridge

15:06 , Malik Ouzia

Five changes for Chelsea from the Juve game and the recalls of Chilwell, Chalobah Loftus-Cheek, Hudon-Odoi and Werner feel like a direct response to that game, given some of the individual performances in Turin.

In Loftus-Cheek and Hudson-Odoi, in particular, this is a reward for their efforts when they came on. Will they now get runs in the team? It still feels unlikely.

15:04 , Malik Ouzia

3 mins: A little bit of a surprise in the way Chelsea have lined up here because it’s Callum Hudson-Odoi out on the left, where you might expect to see Timo Werner, and the German operating from the right in the early exchanges.

KICK-OFF!

15:03 , Malik Ouzia

We are underway...

15:00 , Malik Ouzia

Ahead of kick-off there’s a minute’s applause in honour of 1966 World Cup winner Roger Hunt, who sadly passed away this week.

14:58 , Malik Ouzia

The teams are out at Stamford Bridge. Can Chelsea bounce back after those successive defeats?

Ten minutes to go...

Tuchel miffed by James’ England call-up

14:38 , Malik Ouzia

No Reece James today for Chelsea of course as he continues to nurse that ankle problem, but that didn’t stop Gareth Southgate calling him up to the England squad this week - a move Thomas Tuchel wasn’t exactly on board with.

“When I saw it I thought that maybe Reece goes with the water polo team for England, because right now he trains in the pool,” the German said.

“So I was a bit surprised, but I understood that he was selected for the football team. So this will not happen because Reece is training in the pool right now.

“So my understanding, my last information is that he will not go. So that can only be a misunderstanding, nothing else.”

Our man James Robson is in position at the Bridge...

14:28 , Malik Ouzia

Walcott starts

14:18 , Malik Ouzia

As for Saints, well they make just a couple of changes to the side that started the 1-0 defeat to Wolves last weekend.

Nathan Tella and Theo Walcott come in for Mohamed Elyounoussi and Che Adams, Walcott having enjoyed some good memories at Stamford Bridge in his Arsenal days.

Five changes for Chelsea

14:10 , Malik Ouzia

So, Thomas Tuchel has reacted to back-to-back defeats by changing half his side for this afternoon’s fixture.

There’s a first league start of the season at left-back for Ben Chilwell, while Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Trevor Chalobah and Callum Hudson-Odoi are also given opportunities to impress.

Thiago Silva is the fifth man brought into the side and the only one of them you would say is part of Tuchel’s first-choice XI.

Southampton team news

14:04 , Malik Ouzia

Southampton XI: McCarthy, Livramento, Bednarek, Salisu, Walker-Peters, Walcott, Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Tella, Redmond, A. Armstrong.

Subs: Lyanco, Long, Adams, Perraud, S. Armstrong, Djenepo, Elyounoussi, Diallo, Forster.

Chelsea team news

After a difficult week, Chelsea need to bounce back. They should have too much for Southampton.

Chelsea team news

13:50 , Malik Ouzia

Chelsea have Mason Mount available again. The midfielder has missed the last two games after suffering a knock against Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup but has been back in training this week and is fit to return.

Reece James has been ruled out of the game as he continues to recover from an ankle injury and Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has expressed his surprise that the right-back was named in the England squad by Gareth Southgate for next month’s World Cup qualifiers.

Chelsea will again be without N’Golo Kante after the midfielder tested positive for Covid-19.
