Tammy Abraham moved to joint-top of the scoring charts as Chelsea rose to fifth in the table with a 4-1 win at Southampton.

The visitors to St Mary's took the lead on 17 minutes as Abraham was sent through by Callum Hudson-Odoi and lobbed in for his eighth goal of the season. 

Seven minutes later Mason Mount doubled the lead, but Danny Ings halved the deficit on the half-hour, guiding in Yan Valery’s cross.

N’Golo Kante’s deflected shot restored Chelsea’s two-goal advantage before the break.

Angus Gunn denied Hudson-Odoi early in the second half but could not stop Michy Batshuayi adding a late fourth after he combined with fellow substitute Christian Pulisic.

Chelsea rise to fifth, on 14 points. 

Southampton’s third consecutive defeat leaves them on seven points in 17th.
