Chelsea Vs Southampton Matchday Preview | Injury Update, Lineup, Formation And Kickoff Time

Premier League weekend clash between Chelsea Vs Southampton matchday preview as we give you a rundown of how both teams will be playing.

Last season between Chelsea Vs Southampton in the English Premier League was an evenly balanced encounter both home and away which they both played out draw results.

The home side is coming off a defeat in the Uefa Champions League against Juventus who defeated them 1-0 at Allianz Stadium which saw Thomas Tuchel’s side fumbling again.

A defeat is not something Chelsea can afford after their last Premier League game against Manchester City ending with them losing by a narrow 1-0 result as they were unable to make anything happen.

Another weekend of Premier League football will see the Blues resuming action at home against the Saint who has been not too bad this season despite losing key players who left them.

Chelsea Vs Southampton last season ended with a 1-1 and 3-3 final scoreline both home and away as they couldn’t beat each other which saw the Blues finishing among the top four behind Manchester United.

The last game for Southampton saw them losing against Wolverhampton Wonderers who claimed a 1-0 win, and the game before their loss was a goalless draw against Manchester City who was powerless in the match.

While Chelsea couldn’t get something at Stamford Bridge against Premier League Champions Manchester City beat them through a goal scored by Gabriel Jesus in the second half of the match.

CHELSEA VS SOUTHAMPTON NEWS AND INJURY UPDATE

Good news for Chelsea as Mason Mount is back with the team after a knock which kept him out of the Uefa Champions League clash against Juventus as Thomas Tuchel confirmed during his press conference.

The manager also talked about Reece James who he said is not yet ready to return for the team but he was named in England 23-man team ahead of their World Cup qualifications match this month.

Here Is What Thomas Tuchel Said;

‘When I saw it, I thought maybe Reece James was in the England water polo team!’ joked the boss.

‘Reece is training in the pool right now. I understood he was selected for the football team. This will not happen. My understanding is he will not go. It can only be a misunderstanding, nothing else.

‘Mason is in the squad, Mason is back. It was not a long injury, and we are happy he is back. It’s a given he is nominated in the England squad and he will give everything.’

Golo Kante is still not back after testing positive for coronavirus while Christian Pulisic is still out injured which he sustained during the last International break playing for the USA national team against Honduras.
