The blues meet Southampton today in what we can see as a confidence regaining opportunity for Tuchel’s men. After losing to Manchester City, Chelsea will be determined to get back in the rails and reestablish their positive record of undefeated runs. This time Chelsea will be at home and that gives them the motivation advantage as thousands of fans will be cheering on. On the other hand, Southampton has not performed with flair like in the last season. They could pull some surprises, but not anymore. The Saint Mary’s boys can only fight for a draw in this match. Although the chances remain open, we would like to root for Chelsea’s win or draw.
Chelsea vs Southampton Preview
We are looking at a side with no win in their previous five games playing against the champions of Europe and the most consistent team as of today. Chelsea vs Southampton might not be that guaranteed take for the home side, but the odds are definitely in Chelsea’s favor.
Chelsea team news
Chelsea will not have some playmakers today due to various injuries. For instance, Reece James has an ankle injury, Kante is sick and Pulisic will miss due to an ankle injury. However, that will not affect their performance at all considering the many talents at Stamford Bridge.
Southampton team news
Southampton also has a number of absent players while some remain questionable to pay in the upcoming match. These include Armstrong, Stephens, and the 21 years old William Smallbone.
