Chelsea gave up a certain-looking victory in the Premier League on Saturday with the debut of substitute Hakim Ziyech. ‘The Blues’ played at Stamford Bridge by a late goal with a 3-3 draw against Southampton, which earlier in the game already benefited from a blunder by goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Chelsea seemed to have a simple game against Southampton, because after half an hour it was already 2-0 by goals from Timo Werner. Just before half time, however, Danny Ings made the connection goal at Stamford Bridge, after which Che Adams bizarrely scored the equalizer in the 57th minute thanks to Kepa.

The troubled goalkeeper, who has blundered several times this season, made a major error of judgment on a back pass and completely missed the ball. The onrushing Adams was tapped and struggled to stay upright, kept the ball just in and passed Kepa who was running back with a hard shot into the roof of the goal.

The joy at Southampton did not last long. Werner broke through on the right two minutes after the equalizing goal and passed the ball to Kai Havertz, who easily tapped in. In the 72nd minute, Ziyech – as manager Frank Lampard had already announced – was allowed to appear as a substitute.

The midfielder, taken over from Ajax, missed the first matches of the season due to a knee injury and made his long-awaited debut against Southampton. Ziyech could no longer play a significant role and gave away two points with his team in injury time. Jannik Vestergaard scored with a touched shot from a free kick.

The loss of points brings Chelsea to eight points. That are two less than Liverpool, which earlier on Saturday drew against fellow townsman Everton (2-2). ‘The Toffees’ are still the leader in the Premier League with thirteen points.
