Southampton shock Chelsea at Stamford Bridge

Chelsea were bought crashing back to Earth after Southampton stunned them on Boxing Day.

The Blues had been so dominating in the London derby just days before, but produced a poor performance which saw the relegation-threatened Saints win 2-0.

Frank Lampard’s side came into the fixture riding a wave of momentum after defeating Tottenham last week. However, they came unstuck in the first half as teenager Michael Obafemi capitalised on a comedy of errors to curl into the far corner against the run of play.

Lampard reverted from a back-five at half time and introduced Mason Mount, but his side still struggled to inspire any openings in Ralph Hasenhuttl’s well-organised defence.

Michael Obafemi and Nathan Redmond scored a goal in each half as Southampton won at Stamford Bridge and continued their festive revival.

For Chelsea, it was a third defeat in the last four home games in the Premier League and a blow to their top four hopes.
