Chelsea Win-to-Nil

We're backing the Chelsea train to get back on track this weekend by beating Southampton and keeping a clean sheet in the process. While Southampton have picked up two draws and a win from their last three trips to Stamford Bridge, Chelsea have won 37, drawn 21 and lost just 20 of their last 78 games against the Saints in all competitions. Chelsea have won four of their last six matches in all competitions, keeping three clean sheets in the process, while Southampton have failed to score in three of their last four outings.

Under 2.5 Goals

With Chelsea having played in Italy in midweek, we're not expecting the hosts to go with their strongest eleven and that in turn could lead to this game being low-scoring. Under 2.5 goals have already been scored in four of Chelsea's last six matches (ahead of their game against Juventus in the Champions League) and three of Southampton's last four fixtures have also witnessed under 2.5 goals being scored.

2-0 to Chelsea

As far as a final scoreline is concerned, we're backing Chelsea to run out 2-0 winners in front of their own fans. The hosts have only failed to score in one of their last six matches and they go up against a Southampton side that have struggled defensively so far this season. However, it's likely that Chelsea will make one or two changes to the team that faced Juventus in midweek and seeing as Tuchel's side have only scored more than two goals in two of their last six fixtures, 2-0 looks like a realistic scoreline for this weekend's Premier League clash.

Can Southampton avoid defeat for their fourth game on the run at Stamford Bridge?

Chelsea were simply outplayed in all departments by Man City last weekend, going down by a solitary Jesus goal to nil. There wasn't much that Tuchel's men could do to avoid defeat in that game as City put in their best performance of the season so far. The job for Chelsea this weekend is to ensure they return to winning ways and prove their true title ambitions against a Southampton side that are yet to win in the league this season.

Southampton have been more miss than hit so far this season and last weekend they lost at home to Wolves 1-0 in what was a disappointing performance and result. The Saints have really struggled for goals this season and a trip to Stamford Bridge, despite being a lucky hunting ground of late, will only have the away side doubting their ability to produce a winning performance. Let's face it, Chelsea are going to have to have a bad day at the office to become Suthamtpon's first victim of the 2021/22 campaign.

Team News

Chelsea: the hosts have doubts over the fitnesses of Pulisic, Mount, Jorginho, James and Kante ahead of this weekend's clash with the Saints.

Southampton: Armstrong, Walcott, Stephens, Smallbone and Broja could all miss the trip to the capital due to injury.
