Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga made his third error leading directly to a goal in as many league appearances this season, with the Spaniard and defender Kurt Zouma at fault for Southampton 's second goal in their clash.
The Blues ended up drawin the game 3-3, despite a brace from Timo Werner and a strike from Kai Havertz.
Danny Ings got a goal back before half-time and Che Adams then benefited from the errors of Zouma and Arrizabalaga for Southampton's second.
Zouma under hit a back pass to Arrizabalaga and the goalkeeper hesitated when coming out to claim the ball, allowing Adams to go past him.
The forward's initial strike hit the post but he made no mistake with the rebound, blasting it into the roof of the net.
The errors proved to be costly, with Southampton defender Jannik Vestergaard snatching a late equaliser.
Reacting to Adams' goal, former Premier League striker Gary Lineker tweeted: "So many goals, I can’t keep up. Bit like poor Kepa at the moment.

"Another cracking goal from Chelsea makes it 3-2. Love that fact that no one can defend well anymore."
Former Arsenal defender Alex Scott was also critical of Chelsea's back five, telling Final Score: "For every Southampton goal, Chelsea have had a huge part to play in it.
"There are going to be so many question marks about this Chelsea defence again after today's game."

Speaking while on international duty with Spain, Arrizabalaga expressed confidence in his abilities to remain Chelsea's number one, saying: "I feel fine, strong, with confidence.
"The situation is not ideal, I wasn't expecting it, but we are footballers and have to live through situations like this. I am confident I can turn the situation around."
