Chelsea seize top spot

Chelsea seize top spot

Chelsea scored two late goals against Southampton to top the Premier League table as Brighton drew 0-0 with Arsenal to end the Gunners' recent winning streak while Leeds earned their first league win of the season.

Chelsea ended a miserable week on a high, with Timo Werner and Ben Chilwell striking late in a 3-1 win against Southampton, who are still without a league victory this season.

Mikel Arteta's Arsenal were bottom of the Premier League table after three matches before three consecutive wins lifted them to the comfort of mid-table.

Earlier, Leeds beat Watford 1-0 thanks to a first-half strike by Diego Llorente.
