Timo Werner scored a brace against Southampton, but it wasn’t enough for the Blues to get a victory, as Southampton came down from two goals to draw 2-2 at one stage of the game.

A late Theo Walcott goal in stoppage time cancelled out Kai Havertz goal for the Blues, with the game ending in a 3-3 draw.

It was a disappointing result for Chelsea, especially after a dominant first half, as the Blues dropped points for the third time this season.

Chelsea striker Timo Werner has now sent a message to his defenders that they can’t win the league with a poor defence.

Asked if Chelsea have a problem in defence, Werner told Premier League Productions: “I don’t know if we have a problem but in the end the last three games we concede six goals and that’s not where we want to be.

“I think we are Chelsea, we want to battle for titles.

“In the end think it’s not the offence that wins titles. In Germany we always say defence wins titles. I think that’s true.

“When we concede so many goals in every game then it’s hard to win games but in the end also to win titles.

“I think we have to work in it because six goals in three games is too much. I think we have to be better in this.”
