Chelsea – Southampton (Premier League)

After a strong win against Huddersfield Town, Chelsea returns to Stamford Bridge on Saturday where they will face Southampton, in a tie for the 18th round of the Premier League. After a disappointing defeat against West Ham, Chelsea lifted their head and returned to winning ways on Tuesday, defeating Huddersfield Town by 1-3. Southampton, on their turn, arrive here after being trashed in their own ground at the hands of Leicester City in the previous match.

Chelsea are in 3rd place with 35 points, result of 11 victories, 2 draws and 4 defeats, with 31 goals scored and 14 goals conceded. The Blues continued their pursuit for the 2nd place in the league, occupied by Manchester United with a 3 point advantage, and recovered from a disappointing 1-0 defeat at West Ham’s ground, in a game where it was expected more from them. The defeat at the hands of West Ham was their only defeat in their last 9 consecutive games in the Premier League, having won 7 of these 9. This side led by Antonio Conte is enjoying a good moment in all competitions, they have reached the quarter finals of the EFL Cup, and the round of 16 in the Champions League, where they will have Barcelona as their opponent.

The Blues have won their last 4 home matches in the Premier League, scoring 9 goals and conceding 3, with one of those victories being against Manchester United, by 1-0. Chelsea are the 4th team with the most goals scored in the competition, presenting a good defensive organization and high quality in attack, being dangerous in offensive set pieces and in attacking down the wings, and also very strong in counter-attacks and in creating scoring chances through individual skill, with Willian, Pedro and, especially, Hazard standing out for their great individual qualities, all very strong in one-on-one.

In their last 5 official matches, Chelsea has a record of 3 victories, 1 draw and 1 defeat. This sequence of results started with a 1-0 victory over Swansea City. This result was followed by a 3-1 victory against Newcastle, a 1-1 home draw against Atletico Madrid, a 1-0 defeat against West Ham, and in their last match, a 1-3 victory against Huddersfield Town. David Luiz is out due to injury.

Probable Lineup: Courtois – Azpilicueta, Christensen and Cahill – Kanté, Fàbregas, Alonso and Zappacosta – Pedro and Willian – Hazard.

premier-leagueSouthampton, on their turn, are in 11th place with 18 points, result of 4 victories, 6 draws and 7 defeats, with 17 goals scored and 23 goals conceded. Southampton arrive here in a very bad moment of form, winning just 1 of their last 8 consecutive Premier League matches. When things started to seem to be improving, with the draw against Arsenal, the Saints were quick to prove otherwise, ended up being trashed in their own ground against Leicester City, losing by 1-4 in the last match.

The Saints show greater difficulties when they play away from home, having only won 6 points from possible 21, and lost their 3 of their last 5 trips in the Premier League, scoring 4 goals and conceding 9 in the process. Southampton are usually a defensively well-organized team, they even made a good game against City, but are failing to keep clean sheets, having only avoided conceding goals in 1 of the last 12 league matches, while they have not being able to score a single goal in 3 of those 12 games.

In their last 5 official matches, Southampton has a record of 1 victory, 2 draws and 2 defeats. This sequence of results started with a 4-1 victory over Everton. This result was followed by a 2-1 defeat against Manchester City, a 1-1 away draw against Bournemouth, a 1-1 home draw against Arsenal, and in their last match, a 1-4 defeat against Leicester City.

Probable Lineup: Forster – Soares, Dijk, Hoedt and Bertrand – Romeu and Lemina – Redmond, Davis and Tadic – Austin.

Chelsea won 5 of their last 8 direct clashes, drawing 2 and losing 2.

Southampton do have a solid record at Stamford Bridge, losing only two of their last five visits to west London. However, following a disappointing performance against Leicester, Chelsea could inflict further misery upon Saints with another home win.
