Chelsea made it five home wins in a row after they defeated Southampton by a lone goal at the bridge. (we sef get the power to break records too if we continue to kpef).The visitors,coming off a disastrous 4-1 home defeat to Leceister city wanted to at least redeem their image but the champions won’t allow dat as they controlled the game from start to finish.

Antonio Conte made only one change in the starting line up that defeated Huddersfield town midweek as Captain Gary Cahill was considered ahead of Antonio Rudiger.Although ,Alvaro Moratta made the match day squad, Eden Hazard once again was played as a false nine with Willian and Pedro supporting.
Chelsea started the game like a house on fire dominating possession in every department of the game.
Willian almost got the first goal for Chelsea after a one-two with Alonso inside the opponents box but shot wide for a goal kick in the fourteenth minute.Southampton’s Goalkeeper Fraser Foster was indeed a hero as he denied Alonso in the box after a Pedro had set him up.Not long after in the twenty fourth minute Tiemoune Bakayoko’s shot outside the box was denied yet again by Foster after Willian found some space at the edge.The English Goalkeeper was very busy making saves while Thibaut Courtois was on holiday resting as it were.

 Chelsea went into half-time with a 1-0 lead thanks to Marcos Alonso's strike

Chelsea broke the deadlock during added on time of the first half through a fabulous free-kick from twenty-five yards after Maya Yoshida had brought Hazard down and it was Alonso that did the magic.His fourth goal of the season,and number eight in the 2017 calendar year making him the highest scoring defender in the premiership. what a relief it was for Antonio Conte who was getting increasingly frustrated on the touch lines as a result of the resilience of Southampton.
Second half Antonio Conte brought in Cesc Fabregas and Moratta but the goals just were not forthcoming.Hazard’s chance on goal off a Fabregas pass was ruled offside.Alonso again had his chance to double the lead headed wide.Charlie Austin on the other end put Courtois to the test on two occasions and the Belgian was up to the task.\
Last season’s danger man for Southampton Gabbiadini and winger Redmond couldn’t do much also as Chelsea prevailed and got all.three points. Person no dey catch breeze na abi?
