There was no doubting the quality of the two goals that settled this game. The first, from Olivier Giroud, came courtesy of dancing feet and a determination not to fall under pressure. The second, from his late replacement Alvaro Morata, was a classic centre forward’s header, directed down into the ground and up again with power.
But it was one of the scruffiest ‘goals’ Wembley has ever seen that was the talking point from what ultimately became a very good game.
When Chelsea goalkeeper Willy Caballero dropped the ball over his goal-line under pressure from Southampton’s Charlie Austin, referee Martin Atkinson blew for a foul.
