Much to the dismay of many Chelsea supporters, a late injury-time goal spoils Timo Werna and Kai Harvetz party as duo score their first competitive EPL goal after the international break.
A brace from Timo Werner and another assist from him to give Kai Harvetz his first goal was not enough to give Chelsea the maximum points to continue their sweet form of winning streaks.
In a fiercely contested duel, Chelsea was leading 3-2 in stoppage time, but a poor performance from both the defence and goalkeeping saw Vestergaard flick home former Arsenal prodigy, Theo Walcott’s half volley to give him a goal for the afternoon.
The day started on a good note for the Blues as Timo hit the back of the net for the first time in the Premier League after an incredible dribble and slotting it past the Saint’s goalkeeper, Alex McCarthy in the 15th minutes.
The German wonder boy hit his second for the day in the 28th minute after a beautiful lift up over troublesome Alex McCarthy who had denied Chelsea a lot of opportunities. However, this lead was shortened before the end of the first half as the Saints reduced the deficit in some shocking drama when an unnoticed Danny Ings dribbled Chelsea’s Kepa Arrizabalaga before slotting the ball into the twine in the 43rd minute.
The day seemed incomplete for Danny Ings as he pounced on a chaotic defensive blunder from Kurt Zouma and a disappointing slip from Kepa, who managed to get back on his knees to make amends for his howler, but it wasn’t enough to deny the Saints an equalizer in the 57th minute.
The drama unfolded as Kai Harvetz finally had his debut goal for Chelsea 2 minutes later in the 59th minute after a sweet assist from Timo, but the hearts of the Chelsea went from Blue to red as the Saints equalized in injury time on the 92nd-minute wall mark, denying them a successive winning streak.
Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard currently feels disappointed especially as he wanted to pick up the maximum points at home, but also admits the Saints gave them a run for their money.
