[Video Goals] Chelsea 1-1 Southampton: Costa Goal Not Enough As Blues Held

By on March 15, 2015

Chelsea failed to take full advantage of Manchester City’s slip-up last night after being held to a 1-1 draw by Southampton at Stamford Bridge this afternoon.

The Blues opened the scoring in the 11th minute when Diego Costa headed home Branislav Ivanovic’s excellent cross to score his 18th goal of the season.

Southampton levelled things up just minutes later when Nemanja Matic was adjudged to have fouled Saido Mane in the area. Dustan Tadic made it 1-1 from the spot despite Thibaut Courtois getting a foot to his penalty.

Chelsea pushed for a late winner but the Saints held firm to claim a vital point and give City hope in the title race once again. However, the result does see Jose Mourinho’s side extend their lead to six points with a game in hand so they are still very much in the driving seat at the top of the table.
