Chelsea came from behind to defeat Southampton in a pulsating game at St. Marys. It was Southampton who took the lead thanks to Shane Long before the break but Cesc Fabregas equalised, controversially for Chelsea before Branislav Ivanovic got the winner for the Blues.
Chelsea moved up to 11th in the league table while Southampton remain in seventh place, the win will obviously give Chelsea the lift they need as they hunt for European football through the league positions next season and also for the tie against PSG in a few weeks’ times.
We look back at the game and list out the three things we learned from the game.
- Hiddink Still Got It
Guus Hiddink has not face defeat in the Premier League this season for Chelsea. The former Netherlands manager certainly has turned things around for the side from London and now are unbeaten in their last 11 league games.
Chelsea might not have started the best against Southampton and were a bit fortunate to get the goal but they did do well in the game and keep marching on. This side looks nothing like the side that was struggling under Jose Mourinho and who knows where they could have ended the season had they played in this manner from the start of the campaign.
