Southampton is currently in with only one win in the played games of the season. They may have a little motivation for this home game from their last match in the Carabao Cup. Most notably, the Saints managed to edge out Everton through penalties after settling for a 1-1 draw at full time.

Certainly, they will strive to prove their rejuvenation in this match, although this may need extremely high coadunation and flawlessness.

The Blues will be on the road for this Sunday EPL matchup with an aim of bouncing back from 2 consecutive draws. They managed to outperform Liverpool in the last EPL home game which ended in a 1-1 draw, with the Reds scoring a late goal at the 89th minute. Previously, they have beaten Liverpool in a Carabao Cup match. This is a clear indication that the Blues will not relent to get to beat a relatively weaker side whatsoever.

They will come into this matchup motivated to perform after a 1-0 win against Videoton in their UEFA Europa League fixture played on Thursday. There may be no major changes in the squad. Probably, Pedro, Giroud, Hazard will make it in the starting XI.

Southampton vs Chelsea: Head-to-Head

  • These two sides will be meeting for the third time this year. Their last encounter was in April where Chelsea won 2-0.
  • Chelsea has managed to dominate the last 5 h2h meetings having won all matches, both away and at home.

Southampton vs Chelsea: Prediction

The Blues are definitely the favorite side to clinch a win in this matchup. They are in great form and may not be susceptible to loose in this away game. Chelsea is capable of keeping a clean sheet against Southampton and perhaps may be able to do so here.

The most appropriate betting tip for this matchup is a win by Chelsea.
