2:23 pm on 17 January 2013

Chelsea's hopes of winning the English Premier League title are hanging by a thread after Thursday morning's 2-2 home draw with strugglers Southampton.

The result came on the same day former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola confirmed he's turning down the European champions' overtures to manage German giants Bayern Munich, and leaves Chelsea 13 points behind leaders Manchester United with just 16 league games remaining.

The draw took Southampton three points clear of the relegation zone.
