Chelsea Preview – Blues to bounce back with big win?

Chelsea suffered their first Premier League defeat of the last season last weekend, losing 1-0 at home to title rivals Man City. It was a tight affair at the Bridge, with Gabriel Jesus’ defected goal being the only difference between the two evenly-matched teams.

Prior to that, Chelsea had opened up their Premier League season with four wins and draw from their first five. The Blues have seen off Crystal Palace, Arsenal, Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur so far. They also picked up a handy 1-1 draw with Liverpool at Anfield in August.

Our betting prediction:
Chelsea to win to nil

(odds taken 1120 GMT, Friday 1 October)

After the disappointing result last week, Thomas Tuchel will want to go into the October international break with a win. The west Londoners are the overwhelming favourites, with the bookies offering just 1/3 for a home victory.

Southampton Preview – Saints to crash to heavy defeat at the Bridge?

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s Southampton are one of five clubs yet to pick up a win in this season’s Premier League. However, they have drawn four of their opening six matches. In their previous away fixture, the Saints held champions Man City to a goalless draw at the Etihad Stadium.

After four successive Premier League draws, Southampton fell to a frustrating 1-0 home defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers last time out. Raul Jimenez’s solo goal on the hour mark won the points for Wolves at St Mary’s.
