Southampton seem to be back to their element after a slow start to the season after beating champions Chelsea in the Barclays Premier League clash staged at the Stamford Bridge on Saturday 3 October.
Kenyan international Victor Wanyama featured full time in the game and he is happy at the exploits. He told Daily Echo the win was important and to get it at Stamford Bridge was even more special.
It was the team’s first away win of the season and he termed Chelsea a tough opponent but lauded his team mates for working hard all afternoon to secure three points and the second straight win.
“Yes, it’s a tough place to play and it was an important win. It was our first away win, so we’re very happy.
“We’re very pleased. Playing against the champions is not easy and it was tough game, but we’re happy with the performance today. We really worked hard and left with the maximum points, so we’re really happy.”
While Southampton celebrates, pressure is mounting on Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho to turn his ailing team’s performances around but experienced players like John Terry, Branislav Ivanovic and Nemanja Matic continue to let him down.
