Chelsea Vs Southampton

Marcos Alonso’s stunning free-kick earned Chelsea a 1-0 victory against Southampton in the Premier League on Saturday, extending his team’s winning home league run to five straight games.

Although the scoreline suggests a tight match, the champions dominated throughout and could have won far more comfortably had Fraser Forster not performed as well in the visitors’ goal, while Eden Hazard had a strike ruled out for a marginal offside against substitute Cesc Fabregas.

The win moves Chelsea level on points with second-placed Manchester United, who travel to West Brom on Sunday, while Southampton – who dropped Virgil van Dijk – are winless in five Premier League matches.

 

Chelsea were on top throughout the first half at Stamford Bridge, with Forster making multiple saves and a Pedro effort deflecting onto the post.

The impressive Alonso broke the deadlock just before half-time, though, bending a delightful free-kick into the bottom-left corner from 25 yards out for his fourth goal of the season.

Charlie Austin had two fine chances to level the scores but could not find a way past Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, whose saves secured a fourth successive Premier League victory over Southampton for the Blues.
