SOUTHAMPTON 0 CHELSEA 3

Oct 7 (Reuters) - Ross Barkley scored his first goal for Maurizio Sarri’s unbeaten Chelsea to help move them provisionally top of the Premier League in a 3-0 win at Southampton on Sunday.

Willian had a shot deflected on to the crossbar and Danny Ings missed a golden opportunity from close range at the other end, before Barkley created the opener for Eden Hazard.

The English midfielder pressed high to win back the ball and set up Hazard, the division’s top scorer, who netted his seventh of the league season after 30 minutes at St. Mary’s.

Barkley, who signed for Chelsea in January from Everton, tapped in the second from Olivier Giroud’s acrobatic cross before Hazard played in substitute Alvaro Morata to seal the win in stoppage time. (Reporting by Rik Sharma; editing by Clare Fallon)
