Key Battles That Could Decide Chelsea's Clash With Southampton on Sunday

Ross Barkley provides a goal and an assist as Chelsea register a 3-0 victory over Southampton in Sunday's Premier League fixture at St Mary's. Whilst they remain unbeaten under Maurizio Sarri, they have drawn their last two league games and their trip to Southampton is a flawless chance to return to winning ways. The Belgian attacker opened the scoring for his side while his teammate Ross Barkley sealed the victory with a sublime finish in the second half.

It should be noted that Manchester City and Liverpool have a game in hand each to get back to the top of the table.

The Blues remained in the ascendancy with Barkley curling over the crossbar but after being second best during the opening quarter, Southampton finally offered a positive response.

Naomi Osaka beats home favourite Zhang Shuai at China Open
China Open organisers have had the players competing in a "chopstick challenge" and Zhang and the German Kerber are now winning. But Osaka responded with a break of her own, firing off a forehand victor down the line that left Zhang powerless to answer.

The crowd responded well to a brief spell in possession by the Saints which seemed to give them a bit of confidence, though the wind was knocked out of them by a Danny Ings howler, squandering a great chance from a Ryan Bertrand cross.

Chelsea began in confident fashion and nearly went ahead in fortuitous fashion when Willian's shot deflected off Wesley Hoedt and looped on to the top of the bar. Barkley dispossessed a Southampton player before threading a pass through to Hazard, who took a touch before calmly placing the ball to the left of a helpless Alex McCarthy.

Chelsea, unfamiliar in a light blue strip paired with fluorescent orange socks, were denied a penalty when Olivier Giroud went down under a challenge from Dutch defender Hoedt, before edging ahead minutes later.

Aaron Ramsey, who came off the bench in the 60th minute, piled more misery on the opponents with a flawless backheel. Arsenal are looking for their ninth consecutive win in all competitions and sixth in the Premier League.

TALKING POINT - should Chelsea's second goal have stood?

Ings then saw a snap-shot from 20 yards kept out by Arrizabalaga but just as it appeared that Chelsea would find themselves under a prolonged period of pressure, the Blues doubled their advantage.

But fellow England global Barkley marked his return to the national team with his first goal for Chelsea - nudging in Oliver Giroud's inventive cross with his shin.

American League wild card
The Yankees set an MLB record as they hit 267 home runs in 2018, while the A's were third in the league with 227 long balls. Severino made the move look like genius. "It's not the ideal situation", catcher Jonathan Lucroy acknowledged.

Chelsea primarily wanted to make Eden Hazard the captain at the club so that he gets an added responsibility and thinks twice before moving to Real Madrid.
