They came from behind to claim a 2-1 win against chelsea on Tuesday night.The Saints fell behind to Raheem Sterling’s goal, but they quickly rallied to take the lead just before halftime.

With his first goal in senior football, 18-year-old Roméo Lavia equalized with a pinpoint 20-yard strike that curled inside Édouard Mendy’s near post. Then, in the waning seconds of the half, Adam Armstrong scored to cap off a sweeping Saints move after nearly ten months without a goal.

Southampton continued to be the superior team in the second half and seemed more likely to score as Mohammed Salisu had one effort cleared off the line by Thiago Silva. With Reece James missing through illness, Chelsea struggled to create throughout a disjointed performance, and Kai Havertz squandered their best chance to level after the break.
