'One of the worst' - Southampton fans criticise 'average' man after Chelsea loss

The latest triumph for Chelsea is also its second in as many Prem games, moving Frank Lampard's team into seventh place in the table, one point behind Arsenal. Obviously, Liverpool are out on their own at the minute but at this early stage we are in a nice position and it should give us determination to go away and come back in the same vein.

"This should give us determination to go away (for global duty) and come back in the same vein because the minute you relax in this league it can all change very quickly".

"He's as young as all the young players we keep talking about. Everyone is working hard, you can see how much it means to us".

Portsmouth-born Mount doubled their advantage seven minutes later, curling home before cupping his ears to the Southampton supporters. Danny Ings pulled one back for the Hampshire outfit but N'Golo Kante's deflected effort put the Londoners 3-1 up at the break.

A negative for Chelsea was the away fans chanting a song about Lampard which referred to West Ham as "pikeys" and he addressed the issue.

"I will always back the Chelsea fans in how they support us, but with that we don't want them to chant stuff which is discriminatory to anybody and anyone".

"We need a good spirit and a good mentality and to fight for the first minute". It is a wider problem than just Chelsea'.

Ralph Hasenhuttl has demanded Southampton's players raise their game for the visit of Chelsea in an attempt to end the club's considerable wait for a home win.

"The first half will be very intense and can sometimes be a bit wild because they play very quick in front and us too and it can be a bit unorganised".

But they still managed to add another after Lampard went to his bench and brought on Batshuayi, Pulisic and Mateo Kovacic.
