Premier League: Chelsea throw up lead to draw 3-3 with Southampton

Frank Lampard’s side, Chelsea, crumbled again as they twice threw away the lead to allow Southampton to grab a vital point at Stamford Bridge.

Summer signing Timo Werner opened his premier league account with two fantastic goals in the second half to give the Blues the lead.

England international Danny Ings pulled a goal back for the visitors just before half-time.

In the second-half, Chelsea conceded again after a comedy of errors triggered by a poor back-pass by Kurt Zouma and converted at the second attempt by Che Adams.

But they were level for a mere 121 seconds before Havertz restored Chelsea’s lead, scoring for the first time in the Premier League, a simple finish after a slick exchange of passes between Christian Pulisic and Werner.

Southampton’s Vestergaard’s glancing header diverted a volley from Saints debutant Theo Walcott beyond Kepa Arrizabalaga deep into stoppage time to give the Saints a vital point.
