‘My dad fell asleep watching’ These Chelsea fans react to poor first half showing during Southampton clash

Chelsea struggled to make a mark in the first half of their clash against Southampton, the first half of action certainly wouldn’t win over any non-football fans.

The Blues failed to make their advantage in possession count. The best chance of the half went to superstar Eden Hazard in the 35th minute, unfortunately for the Belgian – Angus Gunn – the Manchester City academy graduate making his Premier League debut wasn’t ready to roll over and allow the Blues to take the lead.

The England Under-21 goalkeeper made a great stop to deny Hazard’s wonderfully timed half-volley from hitting the back of the net.

Take a look at the stats from the first half: 

Maurizio Sarri will need to ignite some fire into his side, otherwise it looks as though they will fail to overcome relegation candidates Southampton in what is a must-win clash.

The Blues should be winning this game with ease to keep their spot in the top four safe, Arsenal and Manchester United are both creeping towards the Champions League spots and it seems that Chelsea are doing nothing about it.

Check out fan reaction to the dreary 1st half of action:

Chelsea fans are becoming increasingly frustarted with the side’s performances and something will need to change, and quickly, if the Blues are serious about keeping their spot in the top four secure.
