Southampton comin’ in hot!! This is two back-to-back quality wins for the Saints who not so long ago were on the dreaded relegation bubble, and it really drives a dagger through Rafa Benitez and his hopes of taking Chelsea back to the Champions League. Now I’m pretty sure the biggest worry on his mind will be getting out of London with his scalp at the end of the season. The game was tight in the first half, seeing goals from Jay Rodriguez (SH) in the 21st minute, John Terry (lolz) in the 33rd minute and then this beauty in the 35th minute which turned out to be the game winner from Rickie Lambert.
With this loss, Chelsea now drops to 4th place in the Prem, with Arsenal and Everton nipping at their heals for that ever so important 4th place finish. It should be one hell of a battle for the final Champions League spot down the stretch. Also, this win thrusts Southampton to the middle of the table at 34 points, and it looks as though they will be sticking around in the Prem for another season and avoiding relegation, so good for them.
