BETTING & MATCH PREDICTION

Southampton vs

It’s Southampton Vs Chelsea on Saturday with the action kicking off at 12:30. The hosts are in a very bad run of form having lost their last six games

SOUTHAMPTON

The Saints are in a very bad run of form of late in the Premier League, as Ralph Hasenhuttl’s team has lost their last six league games. Last time out they were beaten 2-1 by Chelsea.

They started well this season but injuries recently are starting to hamper them a bit. They have conceded 20 goals in their last six games, including a 9-0 loss to Man United, Hassenhuttls second at the club.

Southampton play with a lot of energy and press high up the pitch. It’s going to be a tough game for them against Chelsea who are in good form. The Saints defence will need to be on top form to keep Chelsea quiet and will look to frustrate them and get a draw.

CHELSEA

Thomas Tuchel’s side have got off to a good start under their new manager. They have won their last four games, beating Newcastle 2-0 last time out.

The aim for Chelsea will now be to finish in the top four. Currently, they are fourth on goal difference but these are the types of games they have to win if they want Champions League football next season.

Chelsea have become far more solid at the back with Tuchel in charge. Werner has finally broken his goal-scoring drought and will be desperate to now kick on against a poor Southampton side.

Team News

Southampton have a few players out. Their confirmed injuries are Walker-Peters, Smallbone, Obafemi, Diallo and Walcott.

Silva and Havertz are both doubts this weekend with Abraham out after picking up an injury mid-week.

Match Prediction

These are two sides in completely opposite runs of form. We are backing Chelsea to get another win and carry on Southampton run of losses.

Odds 3/4
