It’s yet another victory for Chelsea, another 3 points, another great performance and another cleansheet.

Let’s see how the players fared at St Mary’s.

Courtois: Relatively untroubled for large spells of the game, and he did well to save a 29th minute freekick from Tadic. 7/10

Azpilicueta: Solid as usual in the match, did a great work in defence today. Only mistake he made was a jittery back pass in the 24th minute, otherwise strong performance. 7/10

Luiz: Beautiful game from the Brazilian. His forward passing was good and he was assured at the back. 7/10

Cahill: Another strong performance from the captain. Was very solid at the back. 7/10

Moses: He has definitely made the right wing-back position his; had a good game, and gave an assist to Hazard to score the first goal. His stunning shot in the 84th minute troubled Frasier Forster, and he was deservedly given a standing ovation by the fans when substituted. 8/10

Alonso: Very good display from the Spaniard today. Was a very good outlet on the left wing when going forward. 7/10

Kante: Solid display from Kante in midfield today, and he has formed a good partnership with Matic in the middle of the park. 7/10

Matic: The Serb is dishing out excellent performances in each game, and he had another good game today. 8/10

Pedro: The Spaniard is giving Willian a run for his money on the right wing, and he had a good game today. 7/10

Hazard: The Belgian was brilliant today; his beautiful goal in the 6th minute set the pace for a comfortable Chelsea victory. Definitely my man of the match. 9/10

Costa: The Spanish international increased his goal tally with a superb effort in the 54th minute. He threatened the Southampton defence on many occasions, worked tirelessly for the team and was lively today. 8/10

Subs

Willian: Came on for Pedro in the 78th minute, and he didn’t really do much. 6/10

Ivanovic: Came on for Moses with just 3 minutes left of normal time.

Batshuayi: Was brought on very late in the game.

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
