Southampton 0-6 Chelsea: Player ratings


Chelsea embarrassed Southampton at St Mary’s as doubles from Mason Mount and Timo Werner blitzed them to a 6-0 win on Saturday afternoon.

Having suffered dispiriting losses to Brentford and Real Madrid recently, the Blues got off to a quick start as Marcos Alonso rifled in the opener before Mount struck soon after, with Werner then racing through to make it 3-0 before the 25th minute.

Kai Havertz helped himself to a tap-in to make it 4-0 before half time, with Werner and Mount getting their braces before the hour-mark.

An energetic start saw Werner hit the woodwork twice in the first six minutes. The first was a decent effort, dragging his shot across goal onto the post, but his second should have been buried, instead heading his effort onto the crossbar.

The German’s tough luck in front of goal meant little as Chelsea went ahead through Alonso. The wing back arrived on the scene to send a half-volley through Fraser Forster’s legs following a thoughtful lay-off from Mount.
