    10/3/2015 3:19:49 PM
    GOAL! Sunderland 2 West Ham 2 - Dimitri Payet
    Oh dear, it's all gone pear shaped for Sunderland. No sooner had they gone down to ten men than West Ham equalise. They've come back from 2 goals down. Payet slots home a rebound.
    10/3/2015 3:20:58 PM
    GOAL! Man City 6 Newcastle 1 - Sergio Aguero
    No this isn't a computer glitch, Man City really have put six goals past Newcastle and Aguero has five of them! This is a rout.

    10/3/2015 3:55:29 PM
    Well, well, well... That was one of the more dramatic set of 3pm fixtures! Goals flying in everywhere... Aguero undoubtedly the standout man - Steve McClaren's position looking increasingly perilous at Newcastle...

    Chelsea 0 Southampton 0 - We are underway at Stamford Bridge
    10/3/2015 4:32:17 PM
    Chelsea 0 Southampton 0 - Little action so far, Chelsea with all the possession but not doing much with it.
    10/3/2015 4:36:29 PM

    Pressure on Mourinho? 

    10/3/2015 4:40:15 PM

    10/3/2015 4:40:43 PM
    GOAL! Chelsea 1 Southampton 0 - Willian

    Chelsea 1 Southampton 0: Chance for Davis on the edge of the area, but he blasts it wide.
    10/3/2015 4:47:13 PM

    Willian opens the scoring 

    10/3/2015 4:49:30 PM
    Chelsea 1 Southampton 0: It's been all Chelsea so far this half, Southampton really struggling to get into the game. However the Blues haven't really been able to turn their possession into real penetration and they remain just one goal ahead.
    10/3/2015 4:55:35 PM
    Chelsea 1 Southampton 0: Yellow card for both former Chelsea men in the Southampton side, as Ryan Bertrand is booked for kicking out at Willian. Needless booking really.
    10/3/2015 4:57:26 PM
    Chelsea 1 Southampton 0: The away side starting to get into things a bit more now and Begovic has to claw the ball away from his goal line slightly awkwardly.
    10/3/2015 5:11:43 PM
    Chelsea 1 Southampton 0: Best chance yet for Saints, Bertrand is played in superbly and Begovic makes a great stop with his body to keep the ball out.
    10/3/2015 5:12:47 PM

    10/3/2015 5:13:30 PM
    GOAL! Chelsea 1 Southampton 1 - Steven Davis
    It's been coming for a bit, but Southampton have equalised. Pelle heading down a ball played to the edge of the area and Davis rifling in a shot past Begovic.
    10/3/2015 5:14:51 PM

    10/3/2015 5:16:36 PM
    Chelsea 1 Southampton 1
    10/3/2015 5:18:34 PM

    10/3/2015 5:20:03 PM

    10/3/2015 5:23:27 PM

    Southampton equalise 

    10/3/2015 5:25:17 PM
    Chelsea 1 Southampton 1: Second half starting now. Matic on for Ramires, Ward-Prowse on for Romeu.
    10/3/2015 5:34:17 PM
    Chelsea 1 Southampton 1: Bit of a spell of pressure from Chelsea now, although they don't exactly look threatening. Enormous half an hour or so of football for them coming up. 
    10/3/2015 5:44:48 PM
    Chelsea 1 Southampton 1: Penalty? No, Falcao booked for a dive. Seemed harsh, there was contact from the keeper there. Not a great decision by the ref.
    10/3/2015 5:47:18 PM

    Not quite going to plan for Jose 

    10/3/2015 5:47:57 PM

    10/3/2015 5:48:26 PM
    GOAL! Chelsea 1 Southampton 2 - Sadio Mane
    Disaster for Chelsea, Mane completely loses John Terry and then beats Begovic when one on one with the keeper. Oh dear. Southampton deservedly in front as Chelsea's defence creaks once more. 
    10/3/2015 5:49:15 PM
    Chelsea 1 Southampton 2: Pedro coming on for Chelsea. The Blues need something special from him.
    10/3/2015 5:55:50 PM

    10/3/2015 5:56:56 PM

    Falcao is brought down but is booked for diving 

    10/3/2015 5:59:20 PM

    10/3/2015 5:59:47 PM
    GOAL! Chelsea 1 Southampton 3 - Graziano Pelle
    Game over. Southampton hit Chelsea on the break and Pelle puts Southampton even further ahead. Matic who only came on at half time is subbed off for Remy.
    10/3/2015 6:01:18 PM

    Pelle celebrates his goal 

    10/3/2015 6:07:12 PM
    Chelsea 1 Southampton 3: Just over five minutes of normal time remaining and Chelsea just can't really create a chance. They look terrible quite frankly.
    10/3/2015 6:14:12 PM
    Chelsea 1 Southampton 3: Five minutes of added time to come.
    10/3/2015 6:20:35 PM

    10/3/2015 6:21:20 PM

    10/3/2015 6:22:14 PM
    Chelsea 1 Southampton 3 - Mourinho's men deservedly beaten by Southampton at Stamford Bridge. Their terrible season continues.
    10/3/2015 6:24:11 PM
    Blimey what a day of football, 21 goals in total! Chelsea the shock result, Man City's thumping win over Newcastle the standout score, with five goals for Sergio Aguero.
