That's all from us. Thanks very much for your company and see you again soon!
95'
FT: Saints 1-1 Chelsea!! All over at St Mary's and it ends all-square! Minamino put the hosts ahead in the first half against the run of play, but Mount levelled from the spot in the 54th minute after Ings brought down Mount. The second half was more even than the first and Chelsea, despite being better, lacked the cutting edge in the final third. A point each seems about right.
95'
Chelsea try and attack, but the Saints stop them, win the throw and that's it!
94'
The sub makes a foul on Rudiger straight away and it's a free-kick.
94'
Saints sub: Nlundulu on for Redmond as Saints win themselves a throw-in.
93'
The corner is too strong and then Saints take the ball to the corner for a bit.
92'
Tella goes down the far side and his ball in is knocked behind by Zouma for a corner.
92'
McCarthy is booked for timewasting.
91'
Three extra minutes and play is stopped as Kante and Tella clash heads.
90'
Chelsea go down the Saints' right through Mount and the cross is cleared way. Mount has been Chelsea's best player by some distance. He nutmegged Bednarek just before putting the cross in.
88'
Mount goes for goal from distance and the ball flies well over.
88'
Mount gets the corner off Vestergaard.
87'
Ziyech is penalised now for a foul and the Blues are really struggling to convert their good moves into chances.
85'
Saints sub: Adams replaces Ings.
84'
James!!! How did you miss that? Mount makes a run and then passes to James, but he can't keep his shot down.
84'
Free-kick to Chelsea in their own half.
82'
Djenepo is getting treatment as he seems to have hurt his arm when he fell. The rain is falling hard now.
81'
Lovely play by Djenepo and Jorginho brings him down. The Saints man has been fouled a fair few times this afternoon.
80'
Alonso gets the first card of the game for a pull back on Djenepo.
78'
Azpilicueta is offside from Rudiger's corner and his shot is saved.
78'
Another corner for Chelsea and they are pushing for a winner.
77'
Saints sub: Tella on for Minamino.
77'
The substitute has been substituted and there didn't seem anything wrong with Hudson-Odoi.
76'
Chelsea double sub: Jorginho and Ziyech are replaced by Hudson-Odoi and Kovacic.
76'
James and Werner combine without creating a chance.
75'
I think this one will end 1-1 and that would be very fair. It's been more even in the second period.
75'
Hudson-Odoi wins a corner for the away side, but nothing comes of it.
73'
Mount is denied by a good save from McCarthy, but the flag was up as Hudson-Odoi was offside.
71'
Vestergaard!!! Redmond's ball in is flicked on and then Vestergaard's header strikes the crossbar! So nearly 2-1!
70'
JWP takes and it's caught easily by Mendy.
69'
The Saints go forward now and Zouma has to head the cut back out for a corner.
66'
72% possession for the visitors here.
66'

65'
The game has quietened down now.
62'
Alonso sends a ball into the area from this near side now and the Saints head away.
62'
Southampton are having a bit of ball now.

Shots: 1-6, on target: 1-3.

Free-kick to Chelsea after Mount is brought down by JWP just outside the box.

Chelsea level and they had started the second half well.
54'
Mount takes and scores!!! He hits the ball to the keeper's left and the goalie goes the wrong way!

Werner attacks down this near side and looks for Mount in the box, but the ball goes to Salisu instead.
48'
Alonso is caught offside.
47'
Chelsea go forward through James and Mount, but it comes to nothing.
46'
Chelsea get us going again!
45'
Chelsea HT sub: Abraham is replaced by Hudson-Odoi.
45'
HT: Southampton 1-0 Chelsea!! Half-time on the South Coast and it's a surprise scoreline. Chelsea have dominated proceedings, but have lacked the cutting edge in the final third. A Marcos Alonso volley wide and then a great save to deny an offside Zouma have been their only chances. The Saints have just threatened once, but Minamino kept his cool to put the hosts ahead. A draw would be fair. Back shortly!
45'
45+2: Abraham goes down in the box wanting a penalty, but Taylor says "he played the ball". The Chelsea man was definitely looking for that.
45'
45+1: Free-kick to Chelsea on the far side and Redmond can't believe the decision.
45'
Three extra minutes.
45'
It looks like no further action will be taken. I can't understand how that wasn't at least a yellow.
44'
Djenepo's getting treatment because that was a really poor challenge.
43'
Free-kick to Southampton after a terrible challenge by Kante on Djenepo's leg. That could easily be a red card. The ref hasn't even given a yellow.
42'
Free-kick to the Saints after a foul on Bertrand in his own half.
39'
Zouma!!! Alonso's ball in sees Zouma's header saved by the keeper for a corner. Zouma was offside and it shouldn't have been a corner.
38'
Free-kick to Chelsea, but then Werner catches Djenepo high after being fouled.
37'
Minamino looks to pick out Redmond and a Chelsea player shields the ball out of play.
35'
The Liverpool loanee showed incredible composure there and it has come completely against the run of play.
34'
Minamino scores for the Saints!!! Redmond plays a one-two with Romeu, Redmond passes to Minamino who runs into the box, waits for Azpilicueta to commit himself and then hit home! Quality goal.
33'
Kante sends a long ball forward for Werner, but McCarthy is alert and picks up the ball.
31'
Werner is given the ball on the far side, but his pass is poor and the Saints deal with it easy.
29'
Rudiger has a pop from distance, but it's straight at McCarthy.
27'
Chelsea are lacking that cutting edge to break the Saints down so far.
24'
Alonso seems to have picked up a knock to his foot. I think he did it himself.
23'
Alonso from the far side picks out James, but then his ball is knocked away by the Saints.
22'
Alonso's corner is blocked by Djenepo for a corner.
20'
It wouldn't surprise me if this one were goalless at the interval. The Blues look in no hurry to score.
17'
Mount passes to Werner and he then looks for Alonso, but he can't stop reach the ball before it goes out for a corner.
15'
Very little goalmouth action so far. Just that Alonso opportunity to speak of.
14'
Alonso is penalised for a foul on Romeu just outside the Saints' area.
12'
72% possession for the visitors.
11'
The Blues go forward, Werner looks to pass to Mount and the ball is intercepted by an opponent.
9'
Chelsea definitely on top here.
8'
Kante looks to find Abraham, Salisu gets there first and is then clipped by Abraham. Free-kick.
6'
Alonso!!! Chelsea attack through James on this near side, he passes to Alonso in the box and the Spaniard's volley goes wide of the goal. Didn't quite get a clean connection.
5'
Free-kick to the Blues after a foul by Ings on Rudiger.
3'
James looks to pick out Werner with a pass, but the German can't quite reach it and the ball runs through to the goalie.

Quiet start to this one so far.
