Chelsea keep pace at top with win

Fiji Sun - - Sport -

Lon­don: Chelsea kept pace with the lead­ing pack in the Pre­mier League as they moved into fourth place with an im­pres­sive 2-0 win over Southamp­ton. The Blues took the lead when Eden Haz­ard cap­i­talised on poor mark­ing be­fore cut­ting in­side Steven Davis and pow­er­ing a shot through the legs of keeper Fraser Forster. Southamp­ton had plenty of the ball but could not find a way through a well-drilled Chelsea, who looked the more threat­en­ing and went close when strikes from Haz­ard and Diego Costa were saved. Costa, how­ever, beat Forster at full stretch with a won­der­ful curled ef­fort from 22 yards. Vic­tory was Chelsea’s fourth in a row in the league - a feat they last achieved in April 2015 - and put them one point be­hind Manchester City, Arsenal and Liver­pool.-BBC
