FULL TIME: Saints 2-1 Chelsea 🙌
WHAT. A. GAME. And what a three points. With no second-half goals to report at St Mary's, Southampton claim a huge victory over Chelsea. While some stoic defending was required from Hasenhüttl's men in the closing stages of the clash, nothing could deny the Saints the W when the final whistle blew. Onto Wolves ...21.40
Five additional minutes ...
Nail biting stuff.
Elyounoussi makes vital interception
Every single Saints player is playing their part in the closing stages at St Mary's. This time it's Moi Elyounoussi who gets back inside his own area to break up the Chelsea attack, dispossessing Raheem Sterling.
Bella-Kotchap stands firm
Excellent from Armel Bella-Kotchap, who both denies the Chelsea attack and rallies the fans support simultaneously.
Southampton substitution: Lyanco replaces Adam Armstrong
Saints' second goalscorer is replaced to a rapturous applause at St Mary's. A cracking display.
Bazunu remains calm
Raheem Sterling makes a break down the left of the area, and while it makes it past a number of Saints defenders, Gavin Bazunu is there to safely recover the ball at the near post.
Bazunu denies Broja
A cross from the left meets the head of Armando Broja at the near-post, but Gavin Bazunu gets down to push the ball behind for a Chelsea corner. Saints holding on.
Yellow Card for Christian Pulisic (Chelsea)
He's not long been on the pitch, but Christian Pulisic finds himself in the book for preventing Moussa Djenepo's counter-attack.
Saints in control?
With just over ten minutes left to play at St Mary's, Southampton have done well to break down the Chelsea attack. With momentum firmly in the hosts favour, can they hold on for a huge three points under the lights?
OFF THE LINE 🥵
A James Ward-Prowse corner nearly results in a third for the hosts, but Thiago Silva gets back with his goalkeeper to make a vital clearance off the line.
Southampton substitution: Moussa Djenepo replaces Romain Perraud
A second substitution for Saints, with Romain Perraud the next to be applauded off the pitch at St Mary's. A wonderful first start back for the Frenchman.
Tensions rising at St Mary's
The atmosphere is certainly heating up in SO14, Armel Bella-Kotchap comes off worse in an aerial battle with Marc Cucurella, with play paused momentarily.
Chelsea substitution: Ben Chilwell replaces Jorge Luiz Frello Filho
A fourth change from Thomas Tuchel.
Chelsea substitution: Armando Broja replaces César Azpilicueta
The former Saint makes his return to St Mary's.
Chelsea substitution: Christian Pulisic replaces Kai Havertz
The first of three substitutions for Chelsea.
Chelsea searching for an opening
Excellent build-up play from Chelsea as they search for an equaliser, César Azpilicueta puts in a nice cross into Kai Havertz but it heads over the crossbar. A triple substitution coming for Chelsea.
Yellow Card for James Ward-Prowse (Southampton)
The captain gets himself in the book for a push on Hakim Ziyech.
Saints holding possession
An excellent period of possession for Saints after the substitution, no clear cut opportunities for a goal but promising signs from the men in white and red.
Southampton substitution: Joe Aribo replaces Roméo Lavia
Roméo Lavia walks off the pitch to a standing ovation from the Saints fans. Lavia looks to have picked up a knock, hopefully it's nothing serious.
Yellow Card for Mohammed Salisu (Southampton)
Salisu finds himself in the book.
SO CLOSE 😱
A wonderfull ball across goal from Romain Perraud could provide the opportunity for Saints to extend their lead with Moi Elyounoussi first getting his diving headed shot away, it's blocked by Marc Cucurella but as Ché Adams heads the ball back down, Elyounoussi has a second opportunity to strike but this time his effort is saved by Édouard Mendy.
Saints' defence holding strong
Chelsea have come out all guns blazing, eager to get back on level terms at St Mary's. Armel Bella-Kotchap and Kyle Walker-Peters are putting in another stellar defensive display to deter them. It's working, so far.
Chelsea substitution: Mateo Kovacic replaces Ruben Loftus-Cheek
A change at the break from Thomas Tuchel.
Back to it 👊
What can Saints deliver in the second-half?
HALF TIME: Saints 2-1 Chelsea 😍
Saints lead Chelsea at the break after an end-to-end opening half in SO14. A stunning strike from Roméo Lavia cancelled out Raheem Sterling's opener, with Adam Armstrong making it two shortly before the half-time whistle. We've now got 15 minutes to recover from an electric first-half at St Mary's!
ARMSTRONG GIVES SAINTS THE LEAD 🔥
What a moment for Adam Armstrong. Just as the tempo seems to have slowed down at St Mary's, Southampton find themselves with the advantage for the first time in the tie. Calm and composed for the striker, who gets the ball over Édouard Mendy and into the back of the net.
Adam Armstrong (45’) | 2 – 1
Armstrong in the mood? 👀
A lovely individual run from Adam Armstrong down the left flank, who then releases a shot goalwards from the edge of the area. It's a comfortable retrieval for Édouard Mendy, but a promising sign from the striker.
Armstrong scuffs a chance for a second
Kyle Walker-Peters delivers the throw in to the chest of Ché Adams, bringing it down for Moi Elyounoussi who launches the perfect looping ball to a charging Adam Armstrong on the edge of the area. For a moment it looks as though it could be two, but with the Chelsea defence hurtling back, Armstrong scuffs the opportunity and Édouard Mendy recovers.
WHAT A GOAL 🔥
Now THAT is how you make your mark. A spectacular debut goal from the 18-year-old who awaits on the edge of the box after James Ward-Prowse' cleared corner. One touch was all the youngster needed to control the ball before firing it past Mendy and into the back of the net. Game ON.
Roméo Lavia (27’) | 1 – 1
Havertz denied by Bazunu
With the celebrations only just calming down, Chelsea nearly find a second. Hakim Ziyech loops in a beautiful ball to Kai Havertz who tries his luck from the near post but Gavin Bazunu does enough to keep the deficit at just one.
Sterling hands Chelsea the advantage
He's looked in the mood since the whistle but Raheem Sterling has finally got himself a goal at St Mary's. Mason Mount does well to find Sterling breaking on the edge of the box, with the Chelsea man finding the back of the net on his second attempt.
Raheem Sterling (23’) | 0 – 1
Chelsea piling on the pressure
A sustained attacking spell for the visitors, who see a number of opportunities pass by, with Gavin Bazunu doing just enough to deny them the advantage.
Chelsea heating up
Raheem Sterling looks to cross a ball into the area with Kai Havertz waiting at the near post, with Mohamed Salisu doing enough to deny the move and push the ball behind for a corner.
Saints utilising Salisu's long throw
For the second time in as many minutes, Mohammed Salisu launches a trademark long-throw in into the area. The second, without infringement, looks to be heading the way of Ché Adams but enough is done from the Chelsea defence for the threat to be cleared.
Sterling denied once more ❌
Another opportunity for Raheem Sterling to break the deadlock in SO14, this time it's Mason Mount with the pass that sees him through on goal. A one-on-one with Gavin Bazunu, but his low effort heads straight into the keepers gloves.
Sterling takes aim ☄️
A dizzying run from Hakim Ziyech sees Chelsea presented with their first real attack, laying a lovely ball into the path of Raheem Sterling. He attempts to chip it over the goalkeeper, but an outstretched Bazunu has it safely in his grasp.
Saints strong on the set-piece
Adam Armstrong does well to win the corner off of César Azpilicueta. Two consecutive corners for James Ward-Prowse to whip into the box, but both are cleared by Thiago Silva. Positive early signs from Ralph Hasenhüttl's men.
Lively start at St Mary's
The Saints players are certainly giving the fans something to cheer for, with Kyle Walker-Peters making a strong break down the right flank after César Azpilicueta loses the ball on the break, before attempting to push the ball into the box across goal. No real problem for the Chelsea defence, though.
Elyounoussi denied by Mendy ❌
It's been a fast-paced start at St Mary's with both sides pressing for every ball. The first real offence falls the way of Saints. Ché Adams lays the ball into Moi Elyounoussi, who composes himself before striking a low, bouncing ball towards goal. It's on target, but direct to Édouard Mendy.
