Chelsea vs Southampton Preview

Chelsea’s enchanting journey continues and newly-appointed coach Frank Lampard seems to know what he’s doing - getting the best out of Chelsea’s academy products. Against his former coach Jose Mourinho with whom they wrote Blue history, Lampard emerged on top courtesy of winger Willian’s brilliance. His brace delivered a 2-0 win much to the joy of the former Chelsea player and now coach.

These Chelsea players are no longer the petrified kids who were thumped 4-0 in this season’s opener against Manchester United. They have morphed into a formidable side, a deadly force to contend with. Sloppiness has been replaced by urgency, ineptitude by the desire to get better with each passing day.

Currently, the Roman Abramovich owned club are four points clear at 4th spot ahead of Sheffield United. A place in Europe is well within the Blues reach, a not so obvious placing at the start of the season. Defensive problems have continued to bedevil Chelsea and their clean sheet last weekend was their first in 8 games.

The sorry Saints are only 3 points away from safety and with the worst defence in the league, the clouds look thick here. The Saints may have ran out 3-1 winners over fellow relegation rivals Aston Villa but here at the Bridge, it is a totally different ballgame.

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side have to dig deep to even share points with an inspired Chelsea side. He will likely need Danny Ings to be at his best.

The English forward is the stand out player for an otherwise woeful Southampton with a personal haul of 11 goals making him the joint second league’s top scorer. He even managed a brace last weekend similar to Willian’s.

The match will likely not revolve around the two but either of the immensely gifted players is apt to register a goal.

Team News

Chelsea will miss out on Kovacic M. who is serving a suspension while Loftus-Cheek R.(Achilles Tendon Injury) and long term injured mid-fielder van Ginkel M.(Knee Injury) will watch from the stands.

Southampton are only without French defender Valery Y. who is under observation by the medics and is billed to miss this clash.

Chelsea vs Southampton Predictions

Chelsea are poised to land a win here and comfortably so. The Saints with their own defensive problems just like Chelsea’s will struggle to conjure up something against Frank Lampard’s boys. Goals are likely to be witnessed in plentiful here.
