Southampton must take Fraser Forster and Jack Stephens out of the firing line

Claude Puel says Eden Hazard's brilliant performance against Southampton both impressed and angered him.
The FC panel discuss whether or not Chelsea will slip up before season's end after edging one step closer to the title.

Claude Puel is one of the most-mild mannered managers in Premier League history but the Southampton boss needs to show his ruthless streak to keep alive the club's hopes of achieving a top eight finish.

For 45 minutes of Tuesday's 4-2 defeat at Chelsea, Puel's men looked like they could have the beating of champions-elect Chelsea. But for all their vibrant and creative attack play, the south coast side were undone by the type of shambolic defending that has become the hallmark of their season, especially...

Southampton made to pay for poor defensive display in defeat at Chelsea

Diego Costa and Chelsea restored their seven-point lead atop the Premier League with a 4-2 triumph against Southampton.

Southampton were made to pay for a poor defensive display, as they were beaten 4-2 by Premier League title-chasing Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday.

Claude Puel's men made a nightmare start by falling behind to Eden Hazard's opener after only five minutes. Oriol Romeu offered the visitors a way back by scoring at his old stomping ground, only for Gary Cahill's header to restore Chelsea's lead on the stroke of half-time against the run of play.

A second-half double from the excellent Diego Costa...

LONDON -- Three quick thoughts from Chelsea's 4-2 Premier League win over Southampton on Tuesday at Stamford Bridge.

1. Chelsea take giant stride towards title

Some wins are bigger than others, simply because of the implications for the victors and the other teams affected by the result, and this 4-2 victory for Chelsea against Southampton was one of those that was heavy on significance for Antonio Conte's team.

Nine days after suffering their 2-0 defeat against Manchester United at Old Trafford,...

Saints can impress Van Dijk, Redmond vs. Chelsea and Prem big boys

Speaking after defeat against Manchester City, Claude Puel says Southampton must do better.

It is the type of fixture list enough to give most midtable Premier League managers nightmares.

A trip to champions elect Chelsea, swiftly followed by back-to-back midweek home games with FA Cup finalists Arsenal and fellow Champions League hopefuls Manchester United, rounded off with a visit to Liverpool.

Rather than being daunted by the prospect of taking on four of the country's so-called "big six" in quick succession at the end of a particularly grueling season thanks to their participation...

Claude Puel's puzzling moves hurt Southampton in 3-0 loss to Man City

Claude Puel is disappointed with his team because he knows they're capable of more than they showed against Man City.

Southampton's four-match unbeaten run came to a shuddering halt as they were beaten 3-0 by Manchester City at the St Mary's Stadium.

Claude Puel's men held their own until half-time, but second-half strikes from City captain Vincent Kompany, Leroy Sane and Sergio Aguero all but ended their hopes of launching a late-season European charge.
