Goals from Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount, N’Golo Kante and Michy Batshuayi helped Chelsea beat Southampton 4-1 at St Mary’s.

According to Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl, his team lost to Chelsea because they were too slow in their minds and also on the ball.

Speaking to Match of the Day, Hasenhuttl said: “We started well but to be honest we are far away from our best, and against the best opponents you only have the chance to take something if you play your best.

“We were too slow in our minds, too slow on the ball. They showed us every weakness we had and we have a lot of them at the moment.

“When they build up from behind and score we must say ‘OK’, but to give the chances we did against such an opponent, you cannot handle it.

“That was the reason we were 3-1 down in the first half. Second half was a little better but not really, we never had the chance to come back.

“We know it is a tough situation, but we must work really hard and that’s what we will do.”
