Southampton and Chelsea played out a 1-1 draw at St. Mary’s Stadium in the Premier League earlier today.

The Blues were the favourites heading into the contest, but they had to settle for a share of the spoils.

Ronald Koeman’s Southampton started the match brightly and took the lead on 17 minutes through Sadio Mane.

However, Chelsea rallied back and restored parity on the stroke of half time when Eden Hazard found the target.

Southampton were reduced to 10 men late on following the sending-off of Morgan Schneiderlin, but Chelsea failed to take advantage of their numerical superiority.

Despite dropping two points, Chelsea remain three points clear at the top of the Premier League table, while Southampton are currently fourth.
