Chelsea – Southampton : Preview & Prediction
After his resounding feat on the side of Tottenham (2-0) on a double from Willian this Sunday, Chelsea will seek to confirm this beautiful victory in front of a Southampton team which is dangerously flirting with the relegation zone. In their last match at Stamford Bridge, the London club bowed against Bournemouth (0-1) to the amazement of their supporters. However the Blues, before this failure, remained on 2 successes before Lille (2-1) in the Champions League and against Aston Villa (2-1). Southampton, 17th, is in great danger in this championship and a defeat could be dramatic if at the same time Aston Villa defeats Norwich. The Saints just won in front of Villa (3-1) outside this Saturday in a shock of fear when they had previously suffered 2 defeats at Newcastle United (2-0) and before West Ham United (0- 1). By winning at Villa Park, Southampton therefore ended a series of 6 unsuccessful matches (2 draws and 4 defeats) far from St. Mary’s Stadium. Another winning move at Chelsea?
Chelsea is 4th overall.
Southampton is 17th and first non-relegation.
Only 1 victory for Southampton during its last 7 trips.
The Blues have posted 3 successes over its last 5 receptions, all competitions combined.
Chelsea have not lost to Southampton since October 2015.
The Blues have 8 successes and 1 draw in their last 9 duels against the Saints.
No doubt the Blues will want to confirm their brilliant success acquired on the lawn of Tottenham … All the lights are therefore green for a victory for Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
