Premier League: Southampton vs Chelsea

Southampton vs Chelsea Betting Tip and Predictions. In the last match on Sunday in Premier League, Southampton host Chelsea at St Mary’s Stadium. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Southampton vs Chelsea.


Southampton started this season in Premier League very solid and after 9 rounds they are standing at the 9th position. After poor start of the season, home side have improved their performance and they are unbeaten in the last 5 league matches. The match against Chelsea is very important for them and they believe that can make good result upfront their supporters. In the previous round they took an important point against Manchester City at Etihad, so they will try to do their best in order to take at least one point. Southampton play very good at home and they are still unbeaten upfront their supporters this season in all competitions. In the last 5 home games in all competitions they have managed to win all 5 matches and conceded one single goal. Four days ago home team eliminated Sunderland in the 1/8-finals of EFL Cup, but their manager Claude Puel has rested many first team players and they all be fresh for the big game against team from London.

Chelsea play very good this season in Premier League and they are one of the favorites to win the trophy. In the previous round they smashed Manchester United 4-0 and will be fully motivated to take another three points. Visitors have three wins in a row in which they didn’t conceded a single goal and their main goal in this game is to secure their net and try to do something in the attack. Chelsea play very good at home, but their away performance is not at the high level. They have managed to win only two of their four away league matches this season. Visitors beat Southampton last season at St Mary’s and they want to repeat their success, but home side look stronger this season and it won’t be an easy job. Their top scorer Diego Costa, who has already scored 7 league goals, play great this season and he could be the most dangerous player for home defence.
