The struggles for Chelsea continue, as Jose Mourinho's squad fell for the fourth time this season with a 3-1 loss to the Southampton on Saturday at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea led 1-0, but surrendered three unanswered goals to the Saints to already surpass their loss total from the 2014-2015 season.
Brazilian midfielder Willian got the scoring started in the 10th minute with a gorgeous freekick goal. But Southampton would respond 33 minutes later when Steven Davis would accept a chested pass from Graziano Pelle, and drill a stunning shot past Asmir Begovic.
Sadio Mane would put the Saints ahead in the 60th minute by taking advantage of poor defending by John Terry. The Sengalese winger slipped past the longtime center back and easily took care of the rest.
Chelsea's defense woes would presist in the second half. Off a breakaway, Pelle would put the icing on the cake in the 72nd minute with a right-footed shot off an assist from Mane. It was a satisfying victory for Ronald Koeman's side after two 1-1 results against Chelsea in 2014-2015.
After eight matches, Chelsea sit in 16th place in the Premier League, while Southampton moved up to No. 9 on the table.
