Chelsea make it four wins out of four
Chelsea picked up their fourth straight win across all competitions on Sunday.
Frank Lampard took his side to Southampton, as they looked to build on previous victories over Grimsby, Brighton and Lille.
Chelsea’s youngsters were once again at the forefront of their resounding 4-1 win.
Tammy Abraham, set up by Callum Hudson-Odoi, opened the scoring vs the Saints.
Mason Mount was also amongst the goals, bagging Chelsea’s second of the day.
N’Golo Kante and Michy Batshuayi got Chelsea’s remaining two goals vs Ralph Hassenhutl’s side.
Highlights: Southampton 1-Chelsea 4
One player who has been absent from Chelsea’s four consecutive victories has been Antonio Rudiger.
As a result, he would miss the start of the 2019/20 campaign.
The German would eventually return to Chelsea’s senior side vs Wolves last month.
However, the towering defender was withdrawn at half-time vs Nuno Espirito Santo’s side, with Lampard later confirming that Rudiger suffered a groin problem.
Simon Johnson of The Athletic has now, on Monday the 7th of October, provided an update on Rudiger.
According to Johnson, Rudiger is feeling fine after the groin injury he sustained at Wolves, and there is growing optimism that he will return for Chelsea after the international break.
