Comments:

League position: 17th This was the first time that Southampton had conceded four or more goals in a home game in all competitions since Leicester City's 4-1 win in the Premier League on 13 December 2017. The Saints had now won two of their last 13 games in the Premier League (lost seven). Six of Danny Ings' last seven goals in the Premier League had now been scored against the big six teams.

Comments:

League position: 5th Chelsea had now become the third team to score three or more goals in the first-half of consecutive away games in the Premier League; also Manchester United in 1993-94 (at Oldham Athletic and Liverpool) and Tottenham Hotspur in 2018-19 (at Everton and Cardiff City). Tammy Abraham had now scored nine goals in all competitions so far in this season; the joint-highest of any Premier League player alongside Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling. Only Watford (33) had now conceded more goals in away games in the Premier League in 2019 than the Blues (28).
