Chelsea take on Southampton in the Premier League on Saturday. Both teams won before the international break, who will come out on top at Stamford Bridge?

Chelsea Form


The pressure is on Frank Lampard to close the gap to the top two in Liverpool and Manchester City this season, but it has been a rough ride thus far. 

With so many new arrivals in the summer, teething problems were expected at Stamford Bridge. But Chelsea gave a glimpse into what could happen if things click with victory over Crystal Palace two weeks ago.

Their 4-0 defeat of Palace came thanks to goals from Ben Chilwell, Kurt Zouma and a brace of penalties from Jorginho. It was a much needed win to lift spirits around the club.

The win came after the Blues lost 2-0 at home to Liverpool and drew 3-3 away to West Bromwich Albion, a game in which they trailed 3-0 at half-time. They were also dumped out of the Carabao Cup on penalties by Tottenham.

Even their 3-1 opening weekend win over Brighton came with a few scares, making the Palace victory and performance especially timely.

Chelsea Team News


Both Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic are expected to be available to Frank Lampard this weekend to further boost Chelsea’s attacking options. Edouard Mendy and Ben Chilwell are both expected to miss out.

Southampton Form


The early stages of this campaign will have initially worried Southampton fans, who saw their team lose their first three games in all competitions. Defeats to Crystal Palace and Brentford were then followed up by a 5-2 thrashing at the hands of Tottenham.

Ralph Hassenhutl’s side have since responded well, beginning with a 1-0 win away to Burnley thanks to Danny Ings’ strike. Oriol Romeu and Moussa Djenepo were then responsible for the goals in a 2-0 win over West Brom last time out.

Southampton Team News


Stuart Armstrong is set to miss out due to illness, while Mohamed Salisu is also expected to be unavailable once again. 

Theo Walcott will be hoping to make his first Southampton appearance in 15 years after rejoining the club on loan from Everton on deadline day.

Verdict

Chelsea showed what they are capable of during their 4-0 defeat of Crystal Palace last time out. We are expecting more of the same from Frank Lampard’s side with goals in each half for the Blues value.

The returning Christian Pulisic and Danny Ings, who scored against Chelsea last season, can get among the goals.
