Mount On Target For Chelsea In Southampton Draw

Nathan Redmond released Minamino, who scored a wonderful goal after selling a dummy to Cesar Azpilicueta and Edouard Mendy to give the hosts a first half lead.

Tuchel took off Tammy Abraham for Calum Hudson Odoi for the restart.

Mason Mount was fouled by Danny Ings in the box as the referee pointed to the spot, Mount made no mistake from the spot to restore parity for Chelsea.

Tuchel took off Calum Hudson Odoi after bringing him on at the start of the second half, he was replaced by Hakim Ziyech, while Kovacic went off for Jorginho.

Southampton held on to earn a vital point after losing their last five games.
