On the other hand, Palace’s last excursion yielded not just an away success but rather a relatively shocking one, 3-2 at Manchester City.
- Nuno made three modifications to the lineup that began the triumph once again Spurs, with Romain Saïss coming back to midfield and João Moutinho and Hélder Costa compensated for their fine shows as second-half substitutes at Wembley.

- The other was Ivan Cavaleiro. Every individual from that trio is no uncertainty mindful of Wolves’ enthusiasm for a January exchange move for Tammy Abraham, the Chelsea forward who has been scoring routinely while on credit Aston Villa this season.
- Crystal Palace are likewise on the chase for another striker, in a perfect world one who will have a faster effect than Ayew, who was given a beginning here in spite of not scoring since joining the club on advance from Swansea in the mid year.
- The Ghanaian was brimming with running at an early stage as Palace made an ambitious start to the match, testing neatly as they constrained Wolves on to the back foot.

- In the eleventh moment Matt Doherty created the principal shot of the challenge, a generally inconsequential exertion that floated over the ban from long range. Castle’s previously shot pursued nine minutes after the fact and brought a fingertip spare from Rui Patrício.
- Andros Townsend made the open door by scratching the ball off Willy Boly before passing infield to Milivojevic, who attempted to jab the ball into the top of the net from the edge of the zone. After three minutes Boly was reserved for turning to an unrefined freight boat to stop a once-over the left by Townsend. A similar player left on another dubious run just before the half-hour, slaloming past three safeguards previously sending a wayward shot into the stands from 20 yards.

- As a rule the match faltered between the uninteresting and the lethargic. Maybe that is the reason Palace safeguards fallen asleep as half-time drew nearer, leaving Boly allowed to meet a corner eight yards from their goal.
- He misled his header before Doherty attempted to reroute towards the goal however gestured over from six yards. Patrick Van Aanholt then warmed the hands of Patrício with an impact from 25 yards. Significantly time, there was no indication of the home enhancement for which Nuno had called.

- Jonny Otto was even less exact in the 58th moment, sending the ball skyward from the edge of the crate subsequent to being selected by Doherty. Thus the diversion’s example proceeded with: much sincere plan and persevering toing and froing yet practically no start.
- Nuno endeavored to infuse some from the seat, presenting Morgan Gibbs-White and Rúben Neves, yet at the same time an achievement looked far-fetched. And after that the doubtful occurred: an goal – and for Ayew, to boot.
- Fittingly it was made by a miscue, Van Aanholt’s wayward shot from 18 yards traveling to the striker. Ayew responded with deft exactness, controlling the ball before opening past the goalkeeper.

FULL-TIME Chelsea 0-0 Southampton
— Premier League (@premierleague) January 2, 2019
- In any case, Chelsea did not do what’s needed as a group in an oddly inconvenient execution and their edginess was summed up in stoppage-time when Marcos Alonso went down delicately under a test from the substitute, Shane Long, in a vain endeavor to win a penalty. He would have been exceptional exhorted endeavoring to shoot.
- It was a reward point for Southampton and their new chief, Ralph Hasenhuttl, who had conceded he had one eye on this amusement with his determination for Sunday’s home misfortune to Manchester City. For him, there was amuse at a reward point in the fight for survival. For Chelsea, there were boos upon the full-time whistle.
Angus Gunn made 6️⃣ saves on his @premierleague debut v Chelsea
— Sky Sports Statto (@SkySportsStatto) January 2, 2019
- The day had been a whirr of exchange action at Chelsea, nearly to the point where the amusement was marginally clouded. The feature thing was the buy of Christian Pulisic, with the credit back to Borussia Dortmund for whatever remains of the season, however there was additionally a move from Monaco for Cesc Fàbregas and one from Wolves for Tammy Abraham, the striker who is right now on advance at Aston Villa.
- Sarri began Cesc Fàbregas among the substitutes and it would be a shock if the midfielder was still at the club one month from now. He needs to leave now. The staying point could be Chelsea’s powerlessness to sign a substitution. Sarri said last Friday it would be troublesome.
- Southampton have deadwood in their squad that they might want to move this month – including Fraser Forster, Steven Davis and Manolo Gabbiadini – be that as it may, as Chelsea, they needed to obliterate the January commotion.

- Hasenhüttl began with three focal protectors and there was a review for Cédric Soares out of position at left wing-back. There was additionally a Premier League make a big appearance in goal for Angus Gunn. Hasenhüttl needed his aggressors and midfielders to press however the need was security and order. Southampton were conservative, swarming the ball and they asked Chelsea one straightforward inquiry – did they have the cunning to separate them?
- Sarri does not so much do turn. Morata for the harmed Olivier Giroud was his solitary modification from Sunday’s success at Crystal Palace. He had four safeguards on the seat and his beginning XI worked to make assaulting advances. There was capable of being heard dissatisfaction inside the home help from around the halfway purpose of the primary half.

- However Chelsea could consider having made three tolerable first-half possibilities with the enormous one going ahead 34 minutes. Eden Hazard brought down a high ball over the best from Antonio Rüdiger and struck for goal just for it to smack into Gunn’s face and gun away. The youthful goalkeeper merited credit for standing tall and being valiant.
- Morata had blown a headed open door in the twelfth moment following a high ball over the best from Cesar Azpilicueta while the striker saw another exertion avoided wide by Yan Valery, the 19-year-old who inspired at conservative back. Sarri was without the harmed Pedro and Callum Hudson-Odoi and he lost another winger, Willian, following a blast from Maya Yoshida in the 37th moment.
- Sarri sent his Chelsea players out ahead of schedule for the second-half – it was anything but difficult to envision his group talk being ruthlessly brief – however prising Southampton separated was a long way from clear.
A Disapointing Way to Start the Year Dropping Points after Drawing One All against Southampton

- Demonstrating eight changes from Sunday’s amusement against City, the guests offered nothing as an assaulting power in the principal half and despite the fact that they came to compromise somewhat more after the interim, the request of the night for them stayed guarded snugness; avoiding Chelsea at all costs. As the minutes ticked down, they came to detect remunerate.
- Hazard sliced inside to work Gunn on 58 minutes yet the pickings were thin for Chelsea. Sarri presented Fabregas for what was the midfielder’s 500th club appearance in England – not the greatest milestone, maybe, but rather one that he needed to reach before he leaves – and he nearly laid on the achievement goal.
- Tolerating the ball from Hazard, his go for Morata was made to quantify and, this time, the striker completed into the far corner just for an offside banner to deny him. It was terribly tight. There was still time for the substitute, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, to introduce Morata on the break yet his complete was directly at Gunn, deceiving his absence of certainty.
Whether you follow U.S. national soccer or it’s best players at all or not, this transfer to Chelsea FC is pretty cool for the young man @cpulisic_10 from Hershey, Penn. Congrats! #PremierLeague pic.twitter.com/ZAGh5QQeAK

The Swede controlled the ball with one touch and pounded it inside Asmir Begovic’s close post with his second.

- It was winded stuff and there was a feeling that everybody required the interim to understand it all.The pace of the amusement stayed wild eyed after the restart, regardless of whether the goal surge reached an end. Doucouré was behaving recklessly when he awkwardly cut down David Brooks – Javi Gracia, Watford’s chief, astutely pulled back the midfielder soon a while later – and minutes after the fact Gosling banged into Tom Cleverley, acquiring him a yellow card.
It’s 1 loss in 6 for Watford now.
