[Teams] Chelsea vs Southampton: Confirmed line-ups from Stamford Bridge

[Teams] Chelsea vs Southampton: Confirmed line-ups from Stamford Bridge”

Danny Ings pulled a goal back for Southampton just before halftime, and Che Adams took advantage of awful defending by Chelsea to equalize in the 57th minute.

Kai Havertz restored Chelsea's lead shortly after by finishing off a well worked move, but the vulnerability in defence once again proved costly and it was not the return to league action that Lampard will have wanted after the worldwide break.

"It is disappointing, you want to pick up points at home against teams like Southampton, irrespective of them being a good team who can make things very hard for you".

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard was left frustrated after his side allowed a two-goal lead to slip against Southampton. Lampard will be encouraged to see Werner score for the first time in the league in his fifth appearance in the competition since his £45 million move from Leipzig.

Theo Walcott could play his first game for Southampton since 2006 after rejoining the club on loan.

Germany forward Timo Werner scored his first Premier League goals to put Chelsea two up in the first half at Stamford Bridge.

But, as ever with Chelsea, the miscues from Zouma and Kepa underlined problems that remain unsolved at the back and could prove fatal to their chances of mounting a title challenge. But Southampton made a lot of pressure on us and pressed us high.

'Thiago Silva after his trip is not ready to play because of the travelling, ' Lampard added.

"When you get a goal two or three minutes before half-time it is not easy".

Chelsea took the lead in the 15th minute when Werner came deep to dummy Ben Chilwell's pass cleverly behind him before nipping around the bewildered Jan Bednarek.

Southampton have a striker with the clinical instincts to match Werner and Ings gave them a lifeline in the 43rd minute. "In the second half, we could have dealt with it better".

Southampton kept up the attacking pressure in the second half.

The Blues' summer-signing picked up a thigh injury while away on worldwide duty with Senegal, which leaves Lampard with either Kepa Arrizabalaga or Willy Caballero in goal.

Christian Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech should both be fit, with the latter in contention for the first time.
