In his words: “I was not happy with the energy, and the attitude on counter-pressing.”

“We decided to take him off again because we demand a lot.”

The Blues were held to a 1-1 draw away to struggling Saints in the Premier League on Saturday.

A blunt showing from the visitors saw Mason Mount rescue a point from the penalty spot after Takumi Minamino had opened the scoring with Southampton’s only attack of the first half.
