Chelsea moved to the top of the table with a big win over Southampton on Saturday at Stamford Bridge. The Blues bounced back to winning ways after they had lost two games in a row in the Premier League and Champions League.
The league leaders were amazing at the Bridge and the visitors had no chance of getting a win especially after going down to ten men in the second half. Trevoh Chalobah opened the score sheet after a corner nine minutes after the start of the match.
The visitors scored the equalizer in the second half through the penalty spot but the Blues were in front again after Southampton's goalscorer James Ward-Prowse. Timo Werner scored his first league goal six minutes before the 90th minute before Ben Chilwell scored a stunner goal in the dying minutes of the match to secure the win.
Tuchel had started with Timo Werner, Callum Hudson-Odoi, and Romelu Lukaku as his front three and they seemed to operate so well and kept attacking in the entire match. However, benching Mason Mount saw the team lack a good creative midfielder in the match especially in the first half.
When the 22-year-old came on in the second the atmosphere of the match and the Blues were stronger offensively and kept having more chances compared to the first half. Mount plays as an attacking midfielder or even as a central midfielder but he is more effective in Chelsea's squad.
Mount kept attacking and had a couple of chances in the second half and created others for the forwards Lukaku and Werner in the second half. Mount has a great career ahead and if he could get enough games he could become a great player like De Bruyne or Bruno Fernandes.
