Timo Werner has expressed his frustrations at Chelsea's draw with Southampton after he had put them into a commanding lead at Stamford Bridge.

The £53million summer signing got his first Premier League goals for the Blues on Saturday, opening the scoring after 15 minutes and doubling his tally before the half hour.

But despite Chelsea looking in cruise control, Saints' striker Danny Ings halved the deficit close to half-time, before Che Adams levelled the scoring not long after the break.

Kai Havertz immediately put Chelsea back in front and on course for victory, but a late equaliser from Jannik Vestergaard left the Blues – and in particular Werner – ruing two points dropped.

Posting on Instagram after the game, Werner wrote: "What a disappointment for us to not win this game today," followed by two emojis accentuating his bemusement.

He had fair reason to be displeased by the result, considering the brilliance of his goals and the mistake by his teammates which allowed Southampton back into the game.

Werner showed superb skill and movement for his first, fooling Saints' defender Jan Bednarek with a cunning turn before driving between several more defenders and firing low past goalkeeper Alex McCarthy.

The 24-year-old then latched on to a long ball over the top from Jorginho, then outmuscling a Saints defender and lobbing the ball over McCarthy before heading it in on the other side.

Chelsea were firmly in the driving seat until Ings slipped between two defenders onto a through ball to round Kepa Arrizabalaga and pull one back.

Kepa was then sent a hospital backpass from Blues centre-back Kurt Zouma, but in his own hesitation made a real mess of the situation.

Adams ran on to the loose ball, skipping round Kepa before eventually smashing the ball into the roof of the net at the second attempt.

Kepa's blushes appeared to have been spared as Chelsea quickly made amends for the goalkeeper's error, and it was Werner who proved to be the architecht this time after playing a neat one-two with Mason Mount to lay the ball on a plate for Havertz to restore the advantage.

But it wasn't to be Chelsea's day as Vestergaard provided the finishing touch to Theo Walcott's strike across goal to snatch a point for Southampton and leave Werner wondering what more he could have done.
