Should have saved Long’s shot / kept on his line – made a real mess of it. Although we won, we never keep clean sheets which is something we need to improve on.
Didn’t really see much from Azpi today, kept quiet. Done the appropriate defensive work but lacked going forward.
Scored the winner! An amazing header from Branna, he’s really performed since becoming a centre back- maybe we’ve been playing him in the wrong role all this time!
Made a crucial tackle to deny Southampton. I wasn’t so sure about the Cahill-Iva partnership but their experience really is noticeable.
A bit of a shocker from Baba, who had been impressing critics for a couple of weeks now. Headed the ball to Southampton causing their goal, should have easily cleared it leading to him being substituted at half time.
Completed 96% off his passes, two being key passes. He has really shone under Hiddink and has earned himself a solid starting position in Chelsea’s Xl.
Fabregas- 9/10 (MOTM)
Scored the equaliser! Although it was a cross, it still would have found Hazard and went in. Put on a stunning display of multiple passes and link up play.
Didn’t really see much of Willian today but he wasn’t missed. Our winner came from his corner and it was an exceptional corner, it produced a really clear cut chance for Chelsea.
Unfortunately for Pedro he got injured within 5 minutes, it looked to be quote serious too. Oscar then replaced him and put in a mediocre display, the only think he really did was have a shot that was comfortably saved by Forster.
Didn’t think Eden was too bad today, it seems whenever Fabregas plays well he doesn’t have to do much though. People were saying ‘he doesn’t want to play for us, he’s Rubbish’ etc. But he’s never going to be like 14/15 Hazard again.
Should have really scored the volley but it was at a strange angle, has finally got rid of his mask and still put in a positive impact despite not scoring.
Made a really positive impact despite not being in his preferred position. At Least we now know he can play in other areas other than LW.
To conclude; an exceptional come back from the blues today considering Southampton hadn’t conceded in atleast 667 minutes and have been on amazing form since Christmas. In the first half we didn’t look to good constant sideways passing and we didn’t look like scoring. On the other hand, in the second half we looked like a completely different team – we deserved to win with our worth ethic. I strongly believe we will beat Norwich on Tuesday as they are on poor form and we beat them in the first half of the season. We have moved up to 11th and the Europa league spots do not seem to far away now, if we keep this form up we will defiantly get top 7.
