What did the coaches say about the game ?
Southampton coach Claude Puel: "We played very well in the first half with so many possibilities and good play.
"But it's difficult to play against this team when you concede a goal after a few minutes. They can play their game with a strong defence and counter-attack.
"It was difficult to find solutions. It's a disappointment because we tried to play good football. We can do better."
Chelsea coach Antonio Conte said:
"We knew today was a test against a strong side in good shape and form. It's important to win games like this - people can increase their confidence and will to work and trust in the work.
"We created many chances. It's the perfect game when strikers score and defenders don't concede. The players deserved this; they work hard in training.
"When you see this type of game and commitment from your players, it's fantastic for a coach."
