Chelsea vs Southampton
Chelsea will welcome the Saints to Stamford bridge in a battle for 3 points.
Frank Lampard’s side which has struggled a bit so far, will go into this game feeling better after a triumphant 4-nil win over Crystal Palace. Although new signings, Thiago Silva and Eduouard Mendy have been ruled out, Lampard will have to find a way to trust either Kepa Arrizabalaga or Willy Caballero to stop the goals from entering the net which seem quite impossible.
Southampton may have their fair share of misses as Stuart Armstrong and Moussa Djenepo will be out but Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men will hope to capitalize on Chelsea’s goalkeeping errors.
Chelsea have won 7 of their last 8 PL games against Southampton with the only loss being last season at Stamford Bridge and Soton will be looking to secure first back-to-back PL win against Chelsea since 1985.
There is only point difference between these two teams on the log at the moment and the Saints could pull a stunner because football is unpredictable. However, the Blues should be able to nick all three points available.
