Chelsea vs Southampton Preview & Tips


Chelsea couldn't ask for a better game to re-find their form. Southampton can't seem to find the back of the net so I foresee a comfortable home victory. 

  • Chelsea have won to nil in 2 of their last 3 matches (Premier League)
  • Chelsea have scored 2+ goals in 4 of their last 6 home matches (Premier League)
  • Southampton have lost 11 of their last 14 away matches (Premier League)

Head-to-Head


Chelsea have a 46-31 advantage against Southampton in 108 meetings with 31 draws. 

Chelsea Form


Chelsea suffered consecutive defeats for the first time under Thomas Tuchel following 1-0 defeats to Man City and Juventus.

Chelsea were the better side in Turin, with 16-6 shots and 74% possession. They couldn’t find the net and were punished by Juve’s second-half goal.

Tuchel’s side are in good home form in the Premier League, winning 3-0 in two of their last three home matches. 

Chelsea Team News


Midfielder Mason Mount should return to the squad.

Defender Reece James and midfielders N’Golo Kante and Christian Pulisic are unavailable due to injury. 

Southampton Form


Southampton’s winless run extended to five following a narrow 1-0 defeat at home to Wolves on Sunday. 

Ralph Hasenhüttl had 18 shots but failed to create any clear-cut chances. They were undone by a quick Wolves counter-attack and still await their first league win. 

The Saints have also failed to score in three of their last four after goalless draws with Man City and West Ham.

Southampton Team News


Winger Theo Walcott is back in contention. Forward Stuart Armstrong will face a late fitness test.

Defender Jack Stephens and midfielder William Smallbone are ruled out and attacker Armando Borja is unable to face his parent club.
