Southampton 0-6 Chelsea: Timo Werner and Mason Mount grab braces in emphatic win

Before Saturday, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side looked like the worst type of opposition for Thomas Tuchel. At best, an organized team capable of frustrating the elite, it was shaping up to be far from a favorable game.

This, however, never turned out to be the case.

Marcos Alonso’s opener within ten minutes came after Timo Werner struck the woodwork twice and from there the floodgates opened.

Mason Mount, not a popular figure among Southampton’s backing, scored a brilliant second with a controlled strike just outside the box before Werner showed great composure on the counter to round off the excellent Fraser Forster , which says a lot about a team that lost by such a large margin.

Kai Havertz tapped in after Werner hit the post again to make it four before the interval.

Less than five minutes into the second half, the German striker – so often the butt of jokes – took his tally against Southampton to five on aggregate by scoring a second before Mount grabbed his brace.

Chelsea’s Champions League draw with Real Madrid may be over. On this proof, the Tuchel era is not at all.
