Southampton vs Chelsea betting preview

For as much as Mark Hughes will be able to take positives from Southampton’s performance at Arsenal last weekend, the absence of points means it will barely come as a consolation after they went down 3-2 at Arsenal last weekend. This is a team who aren’t used to winning games and still look as if they don’t know what it takes to get three points on the board in the Premier League having gone so long without them.

Winning only ONCE in 19 games in the league, it’s astounding that Southampton still find themselves within touching distance of Crystal Palace in 17th, sitting three points behind the Eagles, as well as having a game in hand on them. Goals have still been a struggle for Southampton this season, as has their home form, with home fans going eight games without seeing a win for their team, who have scored just six goals during that time.

Chelsea’s problems look like a drop in the ocean compared to Southampton’s current situation, but that won’t make them feel any better about it after their 1-1 draw with West Ham left them 10 points off the top four. It’s going to take a tremendous effort and capitulation from either Liverpool or Tottenham to ensure the Blues don’t miss out on a Champions League place for the second time in three seasons.

Antonio Conte looks to be running out of ideas and motivation as Chelsea manager, with it becoming increasingly apparent that he will no longer be at Stamford Bridge come next season. Making up 10 points in just six games - particularly with the way they are playing of late - on the top four remains unlikely, with the FA Cup now representing their best opportunity of enjoying a successful end to the season, as they face Southampton in the semi-final.

Southampton vs Chelsea predictions

Southampton are desperate for points at this moment in time and can’t afford to lose this game, or could really be cut adrift from safety. Southampton double chance is priced at 10/11 with Betfair.

Though goals have been hard to come by for both of late, each were involved in games that saw both teams score last weekend. Both teams to score YES is priced at 10/11 with William Hill.
