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. Manchester City did good business by winning the top match against Arsenal (1-0).

Manchester City is just too strong for Arsenal

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 goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

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.

Manchester City scrambled after a difficult start to the season by beating Arsenal 1-0 in-house. Raheem Sterling made the only goal of the match in the 23rd minute by using a rebound.

Nathan Aké, who participated in the matches between Orange and Mexico (0-1 loss), Bosnia and Herzegovina (0-0) and Italy (1-1) in the international period, participated in the entire match at Manchester City. He took a yellow card in the final phase.

It is only the second victory of this still early season for City, which did not win the last two league matches with Leicester City (2-5) and Leeds United (1-1). Manager Pep Guardiola’s team comes in seven points and is in the middle bracket.

Arsenal lost for the second time this season and are stuck on nine points. ‘The Gunners’ are in the subtop.
