Premier League sides Chelsea and Southampton go head-to-head at Stamford Bridge this Tuesday in Round of 16 Carabao Cup action.

Chelsea Preview – Londoners to make it five on the bounce?

Chelsea are top of the Premier League table after picking up seven wins from their opening nine games. Last weekend, the Blues cruised to a 7-0 home victory over bottom club Norwich City, with the magnificent Mason Mount helping himself to a hat-trick.

Chelsea have won four league and cup games in a row, including a Premier League success over Southampton earlier in the month. The league and the Champions League will take priority, but the Londoners would no doubt love to add another EFL Cup to their glittering trophy cabinet.

Our betting prediction:
Chelsea to be winning at half time & full time

(odds taken 1427 GMT, Monday 25 October)

They needed penalties to see off Aston Villa in the previous round of the Carabao Cup, but this one should be more straightforward. Chelsea are in red-hot form at present, and the bookies have the home win in the 90 priced at 4/9.

Southampton Preview – Can the Saints upset the league leaders?

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s Southampton have had a mixed bag of results so far this season. In the Premier League, the Saints have secured only one win from their opening nine matches. They currently hover just four points above the drop zone.

Despite their slow start, Southampton have not been easy to beat this term, with just Everton, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Chelsea getting the better of them. They have taken four points from their last two league games, beating Leeds United 1-0 and drawing 2-2 with Burnley.

Chelsea vs Southampton Betting Advice

These two clubs have already met this month, with the Blues running out 3-1 winners in a league meeting at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea were not at their best, and the game turned on a James Ward-Prowse red card. Late goals from Timo Werner and Ben Chilwell did the business in the end. Both league meetings last term ended in draws.


Key Facts – Chelsea vs Southampton Betting Tip

  • Chelsea beat Southampton 3-1 in the league a few weeks back
