Chelsea’s beloved German strikers finally joined the Premier League scoring frenzy, but a late header from Jan Vestergaard denied them victory

Vestergaard struck in the stoppage time, a header in the air to deflect a volley from Theo Walcott past Kepa Arrizabalaga as Southampton fought to save a point

Frank Lampard’s side scored two goals through Time Werner, but his lingering weaknesses in defense kept the Saints back in the game

Timo Werner (right) and Kai Havetz (left) both scored but couldn’t find themselves on the winning side

Danny Ings and Che Adams upped the visitors’ level before Kai Havertz hit what looked likely to prove the winner at Stamford Bridge

Werner’s first goal came after a quarter of an hour, a good illustration of his qualities

First a flash of movement to create space and receive a pass from Ben Chilwell, then a mannequin to make Jan Bednarek feel like his feet were cast in cement

Werner scored his first Premier League goal with a fine solo effort and an emphatic finish

Werner spun and accelerated out of Bednarek but there was still a lot of work to be done He drove into the penalty area, checked the square on a throng of three defenders on recovery, ignored pass options and hit a low shot with the right foot in front of McCarthy

It was his first Premier League goal, an honor to his determination once he broke the Saints back line, and his second quickly followed

Jorginho managed a long pass over the midfield and Werner escaped Bednarek with another acceleration before applying a delightful finish He lifted the bouncing ball over McCarthy, passed the Saints goalie, picked him up on the other side and rolled him into an empty net

CHELSEA (4-2-3-1): Arrizabalaga 55; Azpilicueta 6, Christensen 6, Zouma 55, Chilwell 6; Jorginho 65, Kante 6; Pulisic 6 (Jacques 87), Havertz 6, Mont 65 (Ziyech 72, 5); Werner 8 (Abraham 90)

SOUTHAMPTON (4-4-2): McCarthy 6; Walker-Peters 6, Bednarek 55, Vestergaard 7, Bertrand 6; Walcott 65, Romeu 7 (Diallo 87), Ward-Prowse 65, Redmond 6 (Tella 77); Adams 7 (long 86), Ings 75

Werner might have celebrated a hat trick in the first half hour He had a goal ruled out because he drifted offside, a header on a Chilwell cross, and shot another chance under a tight angle

McCarthy made an mid-air stop to keep a header from Kurt Zouma before Southampton slipped into the fight Chelsea, for all their fluidity and strength going forward, remain far from safe on the other end

Kepa Arrizabalaga was back in the new recruit Edouard Mendy injured on an international mission He made a good save from Che Adams at the start of the match but could not prevent Ings from reducing the deficit before half-time

Adams won the ball from Kai Havertz in midfield and freed Ings who bypassed Kepa to score his fourth Premier League goal of the Southampton season, looking out of himself, suddenly detected an equalizer

Theo Walcott, who was making his debut after returning on loan at the club he left for Arsenal in 2006, came to replace Stuart Armstrong, who was absent after a positive Covid test, flashed right when the ball was came to meet him

He bonded well with Kyle Walker-Peters but their flank was vulnerable when Chelsea had the ball As proving to be the fashion in the top flight this season, both teams have advanced better than in defense

Ings kicked off another nearly 20-yard effort early in the second half before the Saints were offered an equalizer by a streak of errors from Lampard’s nervous defensive unit

Danny Ings took the ball past Kepa Arrizabalaga to strike home just before half-time to bring the score to 2-1

Defensive confusion from Kurt Zuma and Kepa allowed Che Adams to slam home and level

Adams’ goal was the perfect reward for the Saints who dominated the start of the second half

Zouma started the problem with a bad back pass, but Kepa and Andreas Christensen missed opportunities to clear the danger before Adams scored on the second attempt, sending the ball high into the net

Southampton’s relief lasted just 121 seconds before Havertz restored Chelsea’s lead, scoring for the first time in the Premier League, a simple finish after a judicious exchange of passes between Christian Pulisic and Werner

Visitors have always refused to give up Adams went close and Kepa registers at his nearby post to refuse Ings before Vestergaard hits in downtime

Kai Havertz (right) went 3-2 at Chelsea after tapping an empty net after Werner’s pass

90 4min: The Saints haven’t finished yet either They win a corner that Chelsea manages to clear but the Saints are still pushing to attack

90 2min: What an end to this game! Chelsea fail to clear a free kick and as Theo Walcott returns a ball into the mixer, opportunist Jannik Vestergaard nods

90min: And one final change from Chelsea to kill time as we prepare to enter another four minutes, with Tammy Abraham replacing Timo Werner

87min: Chelsea defensive change as Reece James enters for Christian Pulisic Southampton makes a double change as Che Adams gives way to Shane Long and Ibrahima Diallo replaces Romeu

80min: Good stop for Kepa who is holding the rope to prevent a powerful effort Ings from inside the box Southampton may have found this second wind

77min: Southampton pitch Nathan Tella for Nathan Redmond and soon after nearly equalizes as Che Adams recovers a assist from Theo Walcott (below), playing his first Saints game in 14 years, before dragging a low effort through goal

75min: We haven’t seen much from Southampton since they fell behind again They need a second wind because this game is eluding them Havertz heads for a Chelsea corner

72min: First change for Chelsea and it’s a start for Ajax Hakim Ziyech’s summer arrival as he replaces Mason Mount

68min: I would like to know what Chelsea defenders do when they prepare for matches Part of their play at the back today would be enough to drive a fan crazy A distant center-post is intercepted by Ben Chilwell who, instead of heading aside, returns the ball to his goal, where Kepa Arrizabalaga is unable to prevent him from going out for a corner kick

6 – Kai Havertz is the sixth German player to score a Premier League goal for Chelsea (also Ballack, Marin, Schürrle, Rüdiger and Werner) – no team has more in the competition (Arsenal and Man City also 6 ) Sechsy #CHESOU

59min: But the Blues are back in the lead! Timo Werner transforms into a creator as he charges for a deep ball before making way for Kai Havertz to score his debut Premier League goal

57min: I knew Chelsea’s defense was bad but that’s amazing Kurt Zouma plays a terrible back pass, but Kepa makes it an even bigger mess when he fails to intercept Ings then tries to convert before Kepa miss ANOTHER interception, allowing Che Adams to smash the house

54min: It’s not far from Ings who, after playing a brace on the edge of the box, hits a shot right next to the goal I would bet Kepa Arrizabalaga had it covered but it’s better from the Saints

51min: Not too much change in the pattern of play Southampton continue to try to outperform Chelsea without much success No real chance of noticing in this second period

48min: not Ben Chilwell’s best hour Left-back awkwardly allows a ball to roll past him and then to stop James Ward-Prowse from countering a good ol ‘pulling from his shirt In the book he goes

Only after being forced to wait by Southampton, who were walking around for the second half a few minutes late, left Chelsea on their feet, ready to start I wonder what was said in the locker room at the break that led to this delay

Except for a spell at the start and end of the half, the 45 minutes were very comfortable for Chelsea

They were constantly on the attack, looked dangerous and star man Timo Werner finally has his first Premier League goals Still 45 minutes like that and I’m pretty confident saying the three points will stay away. Stamford Bridge

45 1min: Two more minutes for a first half that seems to end with a little twist

43min: Next article, a goal from Southampton Of course it’s Danny Ings is played in the center by Che Adams and the striker takes the ball around Kepa before rolling into an empty net Absent from the action, the Chelsea central defenders

40min: An overhaul is needed in the outside dressing room as the break approaches Southampton hasn’t been horrible but they really don’t bother Chelsea after brilliant first five minutes A rocky defense is there to be attacked and they don’t just don’t

37min: Of course Werner is on a hat-trick now and he’s not about to let go of his attacking instinct to get it Kai Havertz does very well to get into the box, but to prevent a defender to steal the ball, Werner is straight over it before firing an instant shot away from the nearest post Very broad I could add

34min: This has been a very neat display from Chelsea so far Southampton really doesn’t know how to go about getting back into this game Frank Lampard will be very happy with his team’s relaunch after the international break

31min: Chelsea riot now Only McCarthy keeps them from being 3-0 after N’Golo Kante (shortest player on the pitch?) wins a header from a corner that the Saints keeper does well to ward off

29min: It’s take off for Timo Werner now! As a quarterback, Jorginho sends an excellent 50 yard forward ball.The rebound is too big for the Southampton defender and after Werner flies to take a touch he lifts the ball over McCarthy’s advance with a lot of casually before coming home

26min: I don’t know how Chelsea don’t have a two-goal lead Pulisic twists and pushes his way into the box before trying to cut the ball Alex McCarthy gets a hand to parry but in the scramble following Mason Mount can’t get the ball out of his feet to stab at home

29 – Since the start of last season, only Robert Lewandowski, Ciro Immobile and Cristiano Ronaldo have scored more goals in Europe’s top five leagues than Timo Werner, with today’s strike being the first goal of the German league for Chelsea Baggage handlers #CHESOU

15min: Timo Werner does not take long to follow up! The forward simulates a deep ball from Ben Chilwell to brilliantly turn his marker 180 degrees

As he soars into the box, he leaves more defenders behind as he cuts the goal before blowing up the house And that’s how you open your Premier League account. It was worth the wait!

13min: Timo Werner thinks he scored his Premier League goal with a header but he’s fair, just offside

11min: Not too sure about Chelsea at the back so far this afternoon They look like an accident waiting to happen Frank Lamaprd’s side look good in attack

8min: Did I mention a quiet start We can file this post as bin Timo Werner (below) has a cross-goal shot that wiggles widely at a tight angle, while at the other end , the weak effort of Che Adams is well beaten by Kepa Arrizabalaga

6min: I haven’t seen anyone attempt a header like this since Robin van Persie at the 2014 World Cup The Dutchman’s diving effort found the target for Holland at the time, but with a similar attempt, Christian Pulisic can only guide his effort, well above the bar I won’t be too hard on him, it was barely half a chance given the extraordinary technique it takes to keep him under the crossbar

3min: Quiet start, which may have been necessary as many of us are still trying to deal with the last 15 minutes at Goodison Park Both sides are looking to move forward in early exchanges, however

Chelsea: Arrizabalaga, Azpilicueta, Christensen, Zouma, Chilwell, Kante, Jorginho, Pulisic, Havertz, Mount, Werner Submarines: Abraham, Caballero, Tomori, Giroud, Hudson-Odoi, Ziyech, James

Southampton: McCarthy, Walker-Peters, Bednarek, Vestergaard, Bertrand, Walcott, Ward-Prowse, Romeu, Redmond, Adams, Ings Submarines: Stephens, Long, Obafemi, Valery, Tella, Diallo, Forster

The draw for this Merseyside derby incident means Everton is sure to finish atop the Premier League table again as he drops points for the first time this season

Liverpool have been held to a 2-2 draw at Goodison Park and will feel extremely tough They had an injury-time winner denied after Sadio Mane was ruled highly controversial offside by VAR in the build-up
