Chelsea suffered another case of the Stamford Bridge stutters as they threw away a two-goal lead to Southampton, who snatched a 2-2 draw.

Demba Ba, with his 14th Barclays Premier League strike of the season, and Eden Hazard had put Chelsea in firm control and they seemed to be cruising to a first home victory since before Christmas.

But Rickie Lambert pulled Southampton back into the game with a header three minutes after being sent on and Jason Puncheon then equalised with a brilliant volley.
