    A yawning, soporific 1-00

    Blue Santa hats were the fashion of the day as Chelsea ground out a 1-0 victory over Southampton at the Bridge, to keep their place among the also-rans behind sure-to-be champions Man City. For the Blues it was, at times, a frustrating afternoon. With Alvaro Morata on the bench after recovering from a back injury,

    Saturday’s West Ham v Chelsea lunchtime timing suits the Met, but won’t help agoraphobics.
