Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount helped Chelsea to a comfortable 4-1 win over Southampton at St Mary’s.
Abraham’s lob opened the scoring after 17 minutes before Mount doubled Chelsea’s lead with a close-range strike.
Danny Ings’ tap-in pulled one back for Southampton but N’Golo Kante restored the visitors’ two-goal lead before half-time with a long-range deflected strike.
Callum Hudson-Odoi was denied a goal on his first Premier league start by the legs of Angus Gunn, but Chelsea coasted through a second half in which Saints offered little going forward.
Substitute Michy Batshuayi added some gloss to the victory minutes from time, as Chelsea flew up the table into fifth place.
