  • And that's it! Southampton had taken the lead early on, but that seems like a very, very long time ago now. It's a dream double on debut for Demba Ba as Chelsea keep their title defence well and truly on track. Well, I hope you've enjoyed it. I'm Ryan Gordon wishing you a great rest of your weekend. Cheers all!

  • Marko Marin shows plenty of intent as he runs at his marker out wide before getting past him and breaking to the by-line, but he just overruns it and can't pull his cross back as the ball goes behind for a goal-kick.

  • Almost a second for Frank Lampard now as Demba Ba is able to skip through before squaring the ball to his team-mate in the area, but the England international can't control and gifts the ball back to the defenders.

  • Both sides look content to run out the last few minutes, with several mis-placed passes flying all over the place at the moment.

  • The fourth official raises his board and shows there will be four minutes of added time for the Saints to get through here at the end of the game.

  • A booking in the closing stages for James Ward-Prowse as he recklessly brings down Oscar in the middle of the park.

  • David Luiz gets on the end of the delivery to produce a powerful header, but it's straight at Boruc who plucks the ball out of the air.

  • A late corner for Southampton to deal with now as Oscar plays the ball out off his marker.

  • The Southampton fans are already filing out of the stadium, but the Chelsea fans aren't going anywhere and are in fine voice. They want more here this afternoon, and they might just get some.

  • It's very harsh penalty on Southampton as Frank Lampard's lifted pass hits the chest of Maya Yoshida, but the referee adjudges the defender to have handled the ball, with Chelsea's veteran midfielder stepping up to fire home from the spot.

  • GOAL! Southampton 1-5 Chelsea! Frank Lampard!

  • Penalty to Chelsea! It's very harsh though as Frank Lampard's lifted pass hits the chest

  • Ten minutes plus stoppages left here at St Mary's, and Nigel Adkins will probably just be hoping the score-line doesn't tilt even more in the visitors' favour before the end.

  • Third and final change for Chelsea now, with Brazilian ace Oscar coming on for Juan Mata.

  • First booking of the afternoon now as Steve de Ridder sees yellow after bringing Eden Hazard down from behind.

  • Another change, this one from Southampton, with Jason Puncheon coming off for Tadanari Lee.

  • Southampton must know they're beaten here, but they don't look like they're ready to give up at the moment and are starting to build-up a bit of steam.

  • Another change for Chelsea now, with the diminutive Marco Marin coming on for Victor Moses.

  • Down at the other end and Boruc sticks out a vital leg to prevent Demba Ba from notching up his hat-trick with a far-post header.

  • It's just not Southampton's day. Puncheon drives down the wing before whipping his delivery in, with Ward-Prowse controlling at the far-post only to see his drive saved point-blank by Turnbull, who quickly gets himself up to send Schneiderlin's follow-up shot over.
