Mount earns Chelsea point as Southampton end losing run

Posted 6 days ago 20 Feb 2021 by solomonf

Mason Mount's second-half penalty earned Chelsea a point as they came from behind to draw at Southampton, whose winless run in the Premier League was extended to seven games.

The hosts took the lead against the run of play in the first half when Nathan Redmond played a brilliant ball to send Takumi Minamino clear and the on-loan Liverpool striker showed great composure to slot beyond Edouard Mendy.

But the Saints gifted Chelsea an equaliser eight minutes after the break when Danny Ings brought down Mason Mount inside the box and the Blues midfielder stepped up to send Alex McCarthy the wrong way from the penalty spot.

Chelsea were unable to kick on after that and instead it was Southampton who went closest to grabbing a winner as Jannik Vestergaard hit the crossbar with a header before Ings put the loose ball into the side-netting.

The point means Chelsea stay in fourth place on 43 points while Southampton are 13th of 30 points.
