CHE 3-1 SOU: 5 Players Who Performed Very Well As The Blues Get Back To Winning Ways

Chelsea gets back to winning ways with a 3-1 victory over 10-man Southampton. Chalobah scored a diving header just nine minutes in to break the deadlock and Werner thought he'd added a second, but it was ruled out by VAR.

In the second half, Chilwell gave away a penalty which was slotted home by Ward-Prowse, who was then sent off 16 minutes later for a bad tackle on Jorginho.

Werner tapped in from close range to restore the lead before Chilwell made up for giving away the spot-kick by scoring a great goal after Lukaku and Azpilicueta hit the woodwork.

However, after the match here are five players that performed greatly in the match:

1. Ben Chilwell

First start of the season. Got forward well from the left-wing back, and denied a goal in the 26th minute by McCarthy's outstretched leg, and had another shot saved soon afterward. Conceded penalty from which Southampton equalized, but scored in the closing stages with a superb volley.

2. Trevoh Chalobah

Another fine display by the academy graduate. Recalled for his first start since playing in the win over Aston Villa three weeks ago and opened the scoring with a diving header. Composed in defense, too.

3. Timo Werner

Recalled after being dropped against Juventus, and scored a decisive goal. Had two shots saved superbly by Alex McCarthy? The header was disallowed in the first half but made no mistake turning in Azpilicueta's late cross to put Chelsea back in the lead.

4. Alex McCarthy

Made three good saves in the first half-hour, from Werner and Chilwell, but no chance with Chalobah's opening goal. Brilliant one-handed save from Werner in the 72nd minute and although he stopped Chillwell's late shot, the ball was over the line.

5. Valentino Livramento

Former Chelsea defender looked good on the ball at right-back and had a great running battle with his former team-mate Hudson-Odoi. Fouled by Chilwell for the penalty from which Ward-Prowe equalized.
