Southampton vs Chelsea Match Preview
Chelsea bagged an exciting Champions League win over Lille (1-2) on Wednesday and now travel to Southampton for their Matchday 8 Premier League clash in good spirits, looking to extend a three-match winning streak across competitions and challenge a top 4 spot.
Blues have picked it up as they outclassed Grimsby Town (7-1) in League Cup and Brighton (2-0) in Premier League beforehand, putting behind them somewhat disappointing displays against Valencia (0-1) and Liverpool (1-2) as well as a rather shaky start of the new campaign overall.
Southampton sit just four points behind the rivals but they’ve struggled for consistency just as much, seeing a 2-1 loss at Tottenham last week and failing to connect any two same results since the wins over Brighton (0-2) and Fulham (0-1 in League Cup) back in August.
Saints have seen a rather tough schedule in front of the home fans and come into the match still searching for their first win here, after seeing Liverpool (1-2), Bournemouth (1-3) snatch all three points and holding off Manchester United (1-1) along the way. They will now need more and we don’t really see them up to the task here.
We will thus back Chelsea to snatch all three points and we’ll go for an Away win at 9/10 with Unibet, which feels like great value despite their shaky start – as the Saints struggle to deliver in front of the home fans and we do see the trend continuing on the day.
We’ve seen the visitors scoring (and conceding) numbers of goals away from home this term and we hope to see another exciting occasion here, as we now also go for a high-scoring contest with Over 2.5 Goals FT at 7/10 with William Hill.
