Cast-offs fitted the bill for Southampton with all three goals of the week coming from Chelsea products
- Southampton drew 2-2 with Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday
- The Saints have doubled their points count in a week
- The loan of Armando Broja ensured the first win of the season against Leeds
- He and another Chelsea graduate Tino Livramento scored against Burnley
Chelsea’s debt collectors will undoubtedly be waiting outside Stamford Bridge when Southampton arrives in town on Tuesday night. They certainly are entitled to some royalties for all these points that their products are earning on Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side.
Southampton have doubled their points tally in a week and each of their three goals was forged at Cobham.
Loan Armando Broja secured a first win of the season against Leeds and scored again in this draw against Burnley after Tino Livramento, another Chelsea academy graduate, signed for £ 5m in the summer, canceled the first. of Maxwel Cornet’s doubles with a header. .

Vitesse Arnhem was the preferred completion school for Chelsea youths like Broja, but some like Livramento are leaving for good. The 18-year-old, who returns to Stamford Bridge for the Carabao Cup on Tuesday, recovered some of the £ 90 million Chelsea raised from local talent over the summer.
Now clubs like Southampton are also making sense in this less-exploited market.
“It shouldn’t surprise us (that players are leaving bigger clubs),” Hasenhuttl said. “The only way for them may be to find a club where they have a chance to play in the Premier League.” Livramento, who scored his first senior goal on Saturday, looks like a real gem.
“Tino made the move because he is convinced of what he is doing, and we were convinced that he was the right player for us,” Hasenhuttl added.
