Premier League action returned on Saturday with Chelsea looking to put distance between them and the fourth-place contenders as the season gradually winds up.
After dropping points at Stamford Bridge against newcomers Brentford last week, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel made clear the need for his team to not drop a single point in the next eight games if they should hope for a top-four finish at the end of the season.

The Blues gave an emphatic response to signal n emphatic return to winning ways with a 6-0 damning victory over Southampton. Timo Werner scored a brace, Mount a brace and an assist, taking home the match ball, Alonso opened the scoring and Havertz also got on the score sheet.
Meanwhile, Mason Mount’s goals and assist in today’s game meant he had equalled Mohammed Salah’s record of scoring and assisting in a single premier league game for the fifth time in this current season.
