    Jason Roberts

    Former West Brom striker on Final Score

    “First of all I think Costa does great with a wonderful channel run, gets the ball and holds it up.

    “Fabregas definitely goes for a cross and Forster expects him to touch it, he doesn’t and the ball almost apologetically drops in.

    “He’ll be very disappointed with that goal, Forster.”

    Chelsea on top now. Diego Costa controls in the area and has a shot which is blocked by the sliding Steven Davis. Vital block that.

    Southampton have a penalty appeal when Charlie Austin runs on to a long ball before being tackled by Gary Cahill. The home side claim handball but referee Martin Atkinson is having none of it. Would've been harsh.

    Southampton 1-0 Chelsea

    Southampton midfielder Oriol Romeu seems up for this game against his former club. He's just broken up two attacks from the visitors and seems to have a point to prove.

    There's a bit of pinball in the Southampton box from a Willian corner and it ends with John Mikel Obi heading wide from close range.

  18. Post update

    Southampton 1-0 Chelsea

    Eden Hazard works a bit of space on the edge of the area but his shot is well high. He'll have to do better than that to beat Fraser Forster.
