LONDON: Chelsea shared the spoils with Southampton in a six-goal thriller.

Chelsea looked to be in total control after cruising into a 2-0 lead against Southampton at Stamford Bridge, courtesy of two goals from summer signing Timo Werner.

But a goal from Danny Ings shortly before half-time and a second-half strike from Che Adams wiped out their lead.

Frank Lampard's rallied immediately to regain the lead, Werner teeing up Kai Havertz for a neat dinked finish to make it 3-2.

But Southampton were not to be denied and Jannik Vestergaard bludgeoned home an added-time equaliser for Saints from a free-kick that Chelsea failed to clear.

Manchester City take on Arsenal later Saturday after an indifferent start to the season while Manchester United will be desperate to make amends for their 6-1 hammering by Tottenham earlier this month.

Sergio Aguero returned for City for the first time since June but Aymeric Laporte was missing from the squad, along with the injured Kevin De Bruyne.

Arsenal were able to include left-back Kieran Tierney after his period of self-isolation due to Covid-19 protocols and new signing Thomas Partey was among the substitutes.
