Premier League leader Chelsea were held to a 1-1 in the Premier League on Sunday after failing to take advantage after Southampton were reduced to 10-men in the closing minutes.

Sadio Mane put Southampton ahead in the 17th minute with his second goal in as many games, racing onto a pass from Dusan Tadic and lifting the ball over Thibaut Courtois.

Southampton produced an assured first-half display, but switched off defensively moments before halftime and was punished by Chelsea.

Eden Hazard collected a pass from Cesc Fabregas and shot across goal and into the far corner, beyond outstretched goalkeeper Fraser Forster.

Chelsea took control in the second half but could not break Southampton down, despite midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin being sent off in the 89th for a second booking.
