Chelsea make it four wins in a row with convincing triumph over Southampton

Chelsea claimed back-to-back Premier League victories for the first time under Frank Lampard, while extending their winning run in all competitions to four games, by defeating Southampton.
After victory in France against Lille in the Champions League in midweek, Lampard’s side were looking to return to domestic action on a positive note, and did so by taking the lead through Tammy Abraham on 17 minutes.
The in-form striker – in line to make his competitive England debut during the upcoming international break – latched on to a pass from fellow academy graduate Callum Hudson-Odoi, before lobbing onrushing goalkeeper Angus Gunn. Despite Maya Yoshida’s best efforts of a goalline clearance, technology proved that the ball had crossed the line.
Not long later, the lead was doubled by another of Chelsea’s blossoming young English stars, as Mason Mount powered past Gunn after being teed up by Willian.
Southampton weren’t out of the game just yet though, and Danny Ings restored some hope by pulling a goal back on the half hour mark.
Chelsea regained their two-goal advantage before the break though, with N’Golo Kante’s powerful effort from outside the box flying past Gunn by way of a deflection off Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.
Substitute Michy Batshuayi got his first league goal of the season as full-time approached, meaning Chelsea wrapped up a fourth win on the bounce.
