Chelsea travel to the south coast to face Southampton at St Mary’s this Sunday. 

Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhüttl will be hoping for a better performance from his side, as they are coming into this game with two back to back defeats against Bournemouth and Tottenham.

A win for the Saints would certainly boost their campaign. Currently, Southampton are languishing in 14th place in the league, and their season has not really kicked off yet. 

Chelsea have proved many of their doubters wrong and have got off to a solid start this season. Frank Lampard’s trust in his youth has worked wonders and won supporters over. This shows, as his side are playing wonderful attacking football.

A boost for Saints fans would be that they are benefitting from extra rest, as Chelsea had a trip to northern France on Wednesday, where Chelsea ran out 2-1 winners.

This is a big game for Southampton, as they have failed to win at home in the league for five games. In their way is a resurgent Chelsea team who are full of confidence.
