The confidence gained from that win at Stamford Bridge could clearly be seen in their performance on Monday night against Southampton and two quick-fire first-half goals put them in pole position for another hugely important three points.

The second was created thanks to a pinpoint cross from Mbaye Diagne, leaving Matt Phillips with the simplest of chances.
