Chelsea 1 Southampton 1: Leaders held despite late pressure

Southampton withstood a second-half barrage from Premier League leaders Chelsea to take a point from Stamford Bridge thanks to a 1-1 draw on Sunday.

Diego Costa’s fifth goal in his last six league games gave Chelsea – seeking to capitalise on Manchester City’s surprise 1-0 defeat to Burnley – an early lead, although that lasted just eight minutes thanks to Dusan Tadic’s penalty.

Ronald Koeman’s side threatened to add a second against a home side appearing somewhat fatigued following Wednesday’s UEFA Champions League exit to Paris Saint-Germain.

However, while Jose Mourinho’s men were far from their fluent best, they always looked the more likely to grab a winner after the break, with Costa striking a post before Fraser Forster denied Willian, Eden Hazard and substitute Loic Remy.

Chelsea were ultimately unable to break through, but now lead nearest rivals City by six points at the top of the table and still hold a game in hand.

Southampton are likely to be heartened by a point as they maintain their bid for a European place, while Mourinho will hope his side can rediscover their killer touch as they bid to make his prediction of Premier League glory a reality.chelseaa
