Southampton Prediction – Can Saints avoid third defeat on trot?

After suffering recent back-to-back defeats to Bournemouth in a 3-1 loss in their south coast tussle and a 2-1 defeat away at Tottenham, Southampton will head into this Sunday afternoon clash against Chelsea at their St Mary’s Stadium looking to avoid a third defeat on the trot in the Premier League.

Prior to these two defeats, Southampton had shown signs of staging a recovery under manager, Ralph Hasenhuttl as they’d registered wins on their travels against Brighton and Sheffield United in 2-0 and 1-0 victories respectively, along with a solid point at home with a 1-1 draw against Manchester United.

However, despite these positives, Southampton still remain without a home win in the top flight out of their last 5 matches with 3 draws and 2 defeats, and their early home record so far this season stands at a worrying 0-1-2 3/6 with a lack of goals being one of the major concerns for Hasenhuttl.

In addition, Southampton possess a poor record against Chelsea as The Saints have lost 7 of their last 8 meetings.

Chelsea Prediction – Can Chelsea head into break with fourth win on trot?

After a difficult and slow start to the new Premier League campaign under new manager, Frank Lampard, which saw Chelsea suffer a heavy 4-0 defeat against Manchester United, the visitors finally seem to be settling down this season.

3 wins on the trot in all competitions have resulted in a 7-1 win over League Two side Grimsby Town in the League Cup, a 2-0 home win against Brighton in the Premier League and a 2-1 win away at French Ligue 1 side, Lille, should see a confident Chelsea side take on Southampton on the south coast this Sunday.

Following that opening day mauling at Old Trafford, Chelsea have lost just 1 further match out of their subsequent 6 matches in the top flight and this promising upturn in results include wins against Norwich City, Wolves and Brighton, with the former two results being achieved away from home.

Chelsea’s early away record stands at 2-0-1 8/8 and with their dominance over Southampton in previous meetings, the visitors look set to extend this trend at St Mary’s Stadium this Sunday.

Striker, Tammy Abraham (7 goals) looks the most likely for Chelsea here.


Key-Facts – Southampton v Chelsea

  • Southampton still remain without a home win from their last 5 matches in the EPL
  • Chelsea have won their last 3 matches on the trot in all competitions
  • Chelsea have won 7 of the last 8 meetings against Southampton


Betting Tips Verdict

Southampton’s lack of goals may hold them back again here while Chelsea are growing with confidence.
