Diego Costa scored his 18th goal of the season, after the Spain international headed home from a lovely floated cross from Ivanovic.
Southampton restored parity through Tadic’s penalty, after Sadio Mane was brought down in the box by Nemanja Matic.
Chelsea created barrage of attacks and intense pressure in the final 20 minutes but Southampton defence stayed resolute to earn a deserved draw.
