Chelsea secured a comfortable victory against Southampton in the Premier League on Sunday, with Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount scoring.
Abraham’s lob opened the scoring after 17 minutes before Mount doubled Chelsea’s lead with a close-range strike. Danny Ings’ tap-in pulled one back for Southampton but N’Golo Kante restored the visitors’ two-goal lead before half-time with a long-range deflected strike.
Callum Hudson-Odoi was denied a goal on his first Premier league start by the legs of Angus Gunn, but Chelsea coasted through a second half in which Saints offered little going forward.
Substitute Michy Batshuayi added some gloss to the victory minutes from time, as Chelsea flew up the table into fifth place.
