Chelsea vs Southampton: Top Two Tips

Premier League predictions for Chelsea against Southampton at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. Chelsea are languishing in 10th position and have really been struggling for wins over the last month or two so manager Graham Potter really needs to win this weekend when his team play host to bottom-of-the-table Southampton.

Under 2.5 Goals

Our first Chelsea vs Southampton prediction is in the total goals market. We're predicting a low-scoring 90-minutes between two struggling sides this weekend. Under 2.5 goals have been scored in five of Chelsea's last six outings in league and cup with the Londoners failing to score in three of those games but keeping clean sheets in three of them as well. Southampton have failed to score in three of their last six fixtures in all competitions and could struggle to score against this tough Chelsea defence.

Both Teams to Score – No

For our second Chelsea vs Southampton prediction we're looking into the both teams to score market. We're not expecting both teams to score in this game based on their recent performances in league and cup. Both teams have scored in just two of Chelsea's last six outings and two of those six matches have ended goalless, while just three of Southampton's last six outings have seen both teams score.

Chelsea vs Southampton Lineups

Chelsea

Chelsea made the short trip to West Ham looking to get back to winning ways. However, despite taking the lead through Felix in the 16th-minute, the game ended in a 1-1 draw following an equaliser from former Chelsea player Emerson. Broja, Pulisic, Kante, Sterling and Mendy could all miss out this weekend due to injury, though, Sterling may face a late fitness test.

Predicted Lineup: Kepa (GK), Silva, Cucurella, James, Badiashile, Loftus-Cheek, Havertz, Mudryk, Fernández, Félix & Madueke

Southampton

Southampton took the lead at home to Wolves via an Alcaraz strike in the 24th-minute and moments later they had a one-man advantage as Lemina was sent-off. However, despite leading at the break, Southampton ended up losing this game 2-1 and it proved to be the end of the line for manager Jones. Larios, Walker-Peters, McCarthy and Livramento are all doubts for the trip to the capital through injury.

Predicted Lineup: Bazunu (GK), Bednarek, Perraud, Bree, Salisu, Ward-Prowse, Maitland-Niles, Alcaraz, Sulemana, Lavia & Onuachu

Player to Watch: Kai Havertz

Chelsea really need a top performance from their centra-forward this weekend and while Havertz is traditionally a midfielder, he has been relied on up-front since making the move to Chelsea.

The 23-year-old isn't a natural goalscorer but did net 8 times in the Premier League last season and is already on 5 for the current campaign, having been deployed mostly as a false 9.

Chelsea are lacking goals at this moment in time but have generally been strong at the back so against the division's current worst club this weekend, Havertz is going to be under a lot of pressure to score or play his part in Chelsea putting the ball into the back of the net.

This is why we have selected Harvetz as our player to watch this weekend when Chelsea take on Southampton at Stamford Bridge.
