A BATTLING Saints side earned a point at Stamford Bridge last night, as they drew 0-0 with Chelsea.

Saints produced a superb defensive display to hold Chelsea to a goalless draw at Stamford Bridge - but it couldn’t prevent them from slipping into the Premier League’s bottom three.

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s well drilled and well organised team produced a committed performance to heavily restrict the Blues and earn a highly creditable point.

It was a welcome return to form after back-to-back defeats leading into the match and though the game was a fairly dull affair it mattered not to Saints who were without suspended captain Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.

However, there was a downside on the evening as Burnley produced a comeback win against Huddersfield to climb out of the relegation zone and demote Saints to third from bottom and two points from safety.
