Chelsea are down on the south coast today taking on Southampton in a Premier League game.

With the side having put together a small winning run, Frank Lampard will be looking for his youthful side to produce the goods this afternoon and take another three points.

Three points today would stand Chelsea in good stead when it comes to climbing into the top four with Leicester City losing at Anfield yesterday and Tottenham Hotspur being, surprisingly, beaten 3-0 by Brighton and Hove Albion.

However, we shouldn’t take Southampton lightly as complacency can be a dangerous trait.

As is the norm we’re running our Match Day Moments feature whereby we invite you to leave your views, in our comment facility, on a variety of subjects including, but not limited to:

1 – The build-up to the big game.

2 – The starting eleven selected by Frank Lampard.

3 – The action as it happens down on the south-coast at St Marys’ Stadium.

4 – Your thoughts in the immediate period that follows the sounding of the final whistle.

Here’s hoping the weekend comes to a successful completion with Chelsea having taken the three points on offer.

  • 3-1 at the half , excellent going forward, shaky at the back . Tammy scores a superb goal, as does Mount. Tammy is so much like Drogba , and at such a young age. With Abraham, Mount, CHO, RLC, Tomori , Reece james in our ranks, the next 5 years are looking so so exciting !

  • Do we have a designated Defence coach ? We need some improvement in that department. Hopefully Rudiger & Emerson getting back will help

  • CHO had a good opportunity to score & put the match to bed but missed unfortunately. Hope it does not prove crucial .

  • How valery was allowed to run through was worrying our defence is very shaky young Tomori does take chances and was lucky a few times but hey we scored 4 so it can’t be bad so nice time to get in top four for international break so happy we are doing well we need experience and this is where you get it

  • A good game.. Chelsea settled after the Tammy goal… Good ball from jorghino to Willian to mount for the second. Good assist from pulisic and Cho still can’t finish from the same position even from the grimsby match. Tomori should not overdo things.. He is good. Good block from jorghino.. I must say jorghino is doing well.. He coordinates his sides very well.
    Kante, that guy is good, he is not flashy but the way that guy plays makes me to smile. .. Lampard is doing a good job now.. I want him to improve… Is there a world class English coach out there?

  • Tomori was a bit naive at times but he is a top prospect. I felt Zouma was immense yesterday & after Rudiger gets back, i feel he will pair up with Zouma rather than Tomori. Willian played his socks off, so refreshing to see that, its clear that he loves playing for Lampard. Mount is so good, not just scoring but getting into good positions though many times the other forwards fail to make that final pass to him. CHO’s finishing will improve as he gets more playing time. Tammy’s goal was amazing, so reminiscent of Drogba in him. Pulicic assist was splendid, and i think everyone has noted that he has been very very good in reading the game. And he could have had even more assists too in the limited time he has got so far this season, if more opportunities had been converted. I think Lampard has done better than expected so far , i’m so happy seeing this team play 90 minutes every match, and not tune off. With our core group of young players i can see us as a force for many years to come. What a change from last season when we were all wondering after Hazard leaves then what ? Truly amazing job done by Super Frankie Lampard so far.

  • I hope lampard has giroud in tune with the team.. Because late November, December and January is going to be massive…
    Trust me Abraham, Mount even jorghino might be finding it a bit hard then… I hope to see pulisic, bats, giroud find their feet and form then. Even rudiger and rlc…
    Lamps should use this international week on Hudson odoi.., to score goals.. Especially having seen him missed about 3-4 goals from almost the same angle…

  • So Anthony Taylor you lousy MF, you fail to award a penalty or free kick when Emerson was brought down. And you award a free kick in the 6th minute of an extra time that should have lasted just 5mins (not sure where the 5min cane from)
