Jack Grealish highlights Chelsea star for praise after win over Southampton

Mateo Kovacic and Ross Barkley

Chelsea fights to beat Southampton

Chelsea continued their strong start to the season and reached first place in the Premier League, with a late 3-1 win over Southampton at Stamford Bridge.

A James Ward-Prowse penalty nullified Trevoh Chalobah’s early shot, before the Saints man was ejected late in the second half.

Despite the man’s lead, Chelsea failed to seize their chances until late in the piece, when a goal from Timo Werner restored their lead before Ben Chilwell added sparkle to the scoreboard with a late goal.

Grealish singles out Ross Barkley for praise

In terms of game-changing substitutions, it appears Thomas Tuchel has the golden touch in the first season of this season.

After bringing in N’Golo Kante in what turned out to be a game-winning play two weeks ago against Tottenham, it was Ross Barkley, the least tainted, who was called up by the German this time.

Barkley also proved to be a game changer, despite the 7 minutes allotted to him. Joining the fray at 1-1, the Englishman made an immediate impact in his first Premier League appearance of the season, releasing Azpilicueta with a magnificent pass.

The Spaniard, in turn, found Timo Werner, who found the back of the net to restore Chelsea’s lead against a determined 10-man Southampton.

The third goal, added by Ben Chilwell, was largely the icing on the cake late in the process, but Barkley certainly played a vital role in securing all three points.

This was acknowledged by Aston Villa teammate and now Manchester City star Jack Grealish, who is no stranger to a moment of magic.

Responding to Ross Barkley’s post on social media post-match, Grealish responded:

“What happened brother”.

Will this cameo give Barkley more first-team opportunities for the Blues?
