Angry Chelsea thrash Southampton 6-0

Chelsea meted out their anger on Southampton on Saturday by thrashing them by six goals to nil following the Blues’ Champions League quarterfinal home defeat to Real Madrid in midweek.

Marcos Alonso opened the scoring in the eighth minute to ensure Chelsea became the third Premier League club to score 100 goals in all competitions this season, after Liverpool (119) and Man City (114).

Mason Mount and Timo Werner then scored a goal each to put Chelsea 3-0 up before Kai Harvetz made it four before the break.

Mount and Werner added their second each in the second half to hand the Thomas Tuchel side a big boost going for their return leg in the Champions League last-eight in Spain next Tuesday.

At the Emirates Stadium, Arsenal were beaten 2-1 by visiting Brighton.

Leeds also thrashed Watford 3-0 in another Premier League clash played concurrently.

Earlier in the weekend, Super Eagles forward Alex Iwobi was in action to help Everton defeat Manchester United 1-0 at the Goodison Park.

The win was a boost for the Toffees who are seeking to avoid relegation this season, as they make the Red Devils’ hopes of making top four suffer.

Everton’s victory came courtesy of Anthony Gordon’s 27th-minute drive, which took a heavy deflection off United captain Harry Maguire to leave keeper David de Gea wrong-footed.

Spurs will face Aston Villa later on Saturday.
