Chelsea 0-1 Southampton LIVE: Score and Premier League latest, Frank Lampard shocked | Football | Sport


CHELSEA 0-1 SOUTHAMPTON | OBAFEMI (31)

Callum Hudson-Odoi started his first Chelsea match since October as the Blues showed three changes to host Southampton at Stamford Bridge.

Hudson-Odoi replaced England colleague Mason Mount, while Jorginho slotted into midfield in place of Mateo Kovacic and Emerson Palmieri stepped in on the left flank with Marcos Alonso dropping out.

Frank Lampard kept faith with the 3-4-3 formation that so outfoxed Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham in the 2-0 win on Sunday.

Michael Obafemi and Che Adams started for Southampton, with Danny Ings dropping to the bench and Shane Long omitted.

Chelsea XI: Kepa, Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Zouma, Tomori, Emerson, Kante, Jorginho, Willian, Hudson-Odoi, Abraham.

Subs: Caballero, Christensen, Barkley, Pedro, Mount, Pulisic, Batshuayi.

Southampton XI: McCarthy, Soares, Stephens, Bednarek, Bertrand, Armstrong, Ward-Prowse, Hojbjerg, Redmond, Obafemi, Adams

Subs: Gunn, Yoshida, Vestergaard, Ings, Romeu, Boufal, Danso
