Chelsea v Southampton: Timo Werner scored two goals and an assist for Kai Havertz, but Chelsea’s terrible defense helped Southampton to a 3-3 draw at Stamford Bridge on Saturday

It was a tough affair that saw some delicious attacks and terrible mistakes from the Blues’ Frank Lampard, who drew 3-3 for the second time this season after coming back from 3-0 against West Brom

USMNT star Christian Pulisic returned to Chelsea’s starting lineup and did the heavy lifting on Havertz’s third goal as the Blues slipped to 2W-2D-1L this season, the same record as their visitors

The Saints got a goal in the stoppage time from Jannik Vestergaard after hometown hero Theo Walcott returned to tie him Southampton also got goals from Danny Ings and Che Adams, the latter marking a miserable streak between Kurt Zouma and Kepa Arrizabalaga

1 Healthy Chelsea’s Scary Attack: Seasonal Reference Encountered If this is what Chelsea look like with a healthy group of strikers, then their fragmentary defense isn’t as much of a concern as their reigning rivals and the sky is the absolute limit Timo Werner, Christian Pulisic and Mason Mount were endemic in the first half against a Saints side entering the game on a 188-minute shutout streak (albeit against Burnley and West Brom) Jorginho’s pass for Werner’s second was just stunning and Pulisic’s dribble to get a ‘hockey assist’ on the winner was wonderful

2 Kepa, Kepa, Kepa (and Zouma): An injury to Edouard Mendy sent Kepa Arrizabalaga back on fire, and the former Chelsea no 1 made a very good early save on Theo Walcott and a good save on Ings at the 82nd Kepa couldn’t do much to deny Ings’s goal, but what will get everyone talking is his inadequate response to a bad back pass from Zouma The keeper saw the ball bounce off his leg, then he slipped into the goal post before Adams turned the equalizer at the top of the goal Mendy will be back to reclaim his starting spot, but can Lampard continue to keep Antonio Rudiger out of the roster? Thiago Silva also did not play because Lampard opted for Zouma and Andreas Christensen

3 Werner shows another world: Earlier this season Timo Werner had a few moments against Liverpool which showed pure, elite class without the required finish The German had it all on Saturday, with glittering turns and touches calm delivering the goods His help on Chelsea’s response to make it 3-2 was the least of his contributions to the man of the match and still a good one Werner and Havertz both scored for Germany in midweek, so don’t sleep on the international chemistry building for Chelsea’s expensive new forwards

The Blues sent an early warning sign to the Saints when Ben Chilwell’s tear was saved by Alex McCarthy, who came across the box to acrobatically deny Kai Havertz’s offer for the rebound

Werner was the star of the first half, first using an incredible dummy to get a pass from Chilwell and descending left and across the box to pass McCarthy

He did it 2-0 on Jorginho’s superb pass, although Werner still had a lot to do with his chip on McCarthy and his header in goal

Ings put the Saints to one just before half-time, the dreaded time for a top team to concede and the fault lies with Kai Havertz

The German gave the ball to midfield and Ings ran on a sharp pass from Che Adams to touch Kepa and go home

Saints made it 2-2 thanks in large part to Kurt Zouma’s terrible back pass and Kepa’s terrible response, Adams tearing the ball into the top of the net up close

The stalemate didn’t last long, however, as Pulisic danced through the Saints’ defense and slid Werner into the right of the box Werner found Havertz for 3-2 and there was still over 30 minutes to play at Stamford Bridge

Hakim Ziyech made his Chelsea debut on the bench in the final 19 minutes, and Arrizabalaga made a nice save on late Ings but couldn’t stop Vestegaard in the second minute stoppage
