Player Ratings: Eden Hazard shines again but Chelsea slip at Saints

Eden Hazard scored in a fine performance for Chelsea but the Blues couldn't get past Southampton in their 1-1 draw.

A frustrating afternoon for Chelsea saw two points dropped against Southampton with the match finishing 1-1 at St Mary's.

Chelsea will justifiably point to a dreadful decision from referee Anthony Taylor that saw Cesc Fabregas booked for simulation despite clearly being tripped in the penalty area by Matt Targett. Whether the spot kick would have been converted is another question, though given Eden Hazard's sparkling form it is fair to suggest that the official's blunder almost certainly cost Chelsea...

Three Points: Southampton vs. Chelsea

ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE: Eden Hazard (45'+1) Southampton 1-1 Chelsea

SOUTHAMPTON, England -- Three quick thoughts from a game that ended with Chelsea surrendering more ground in their title battle with Manchester City following a 1-1 draw against top-four contenders Southampton at St Mary's Stadium.

1. One point gained, two points lost

This was a breakthrough result for a hard-working Southampton side as they finally claimed some success against one of the Premier League's big hitters, yet Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho could only conclude this was a missed opportunity...

Diego Costa was on target in a 2-0 win as Premier League leaders Chelsea were too much for the Hammers to handle.

LONDON -- John Terry and Diego Costa scored as Chelsea enjoyed a comfortable win over West Ham. Here's a trio of observations on Chelsea's 2-0 victory in the Premier League on Boxing Day.

1. Chelsea are back in the groove

This Boxing Day game was effectively wrapped up when Diego Costa, seizing onto Eden Hazard's pass after Cheikhou Kouyate had given the ball away, sent three defenders in one direction with a swerve of the hips and flashed an irresistible second goal across Adrian with his left...

Player Ratings: Terry impresses as Chelsea cruise past West Ham

Diego Costa was on target in a 2-0 win as Premier League leaders Chelsea were too much for the Hammers to handle.
John Terry scored the opener as Chelsea eased to a 2-0 win at home to West Ham.

Chelsea brushed aside West Ham United with consummate ease at Stamford Bridge, strolling to a comfortable 2-0 victory and maintaining their position as Premier League title favourites.

The Blues have a 100 percent record at the Bridge in the league this season, and from the first few minutes of this festive London derby it was clear that record was not under any real threat from the Hammers.

Jose Mourinho's men did have to be patient for their first goal. Sam Allardyce's team did not park the bus,...

Can Chelsea avoid a London derby upset from surprising West Ham?

The Premier League will feature all 20 teams on Boxing Day, highlighted by Chelsea's clash with West Ham at Stamford Bridge, while Manchester United entertain Newcastle at Old Trafford.

Having faced the possibility of sitting down for Christmas dinner after dropping to second place in the Premier League, Chelsea now have the opportunity to turn the tables on Manchester City by moving six points clear at the top with a win over West Ham United.

With the match kicking off at lunchtime and concluding prior to City's meeting with West Bromwich Albion later that afternoon, the Blues have the chance to increase the pressure on their main title rivals. No doubt Citizens' boss Manuel Pellegrini...
