Another Premier League clash involving Southampton Vs Chelsea going down right now at the Saint Mary’s Stadium.
Following Thomas Tuchel and his player’s UEFA Champions League game disappointment, they will be looking to bounce back with a win away from home today as everything is on the table for them which could also mean their UCL spot for next season is at risk right now.
The Southampton Vs Chelsea game has so much built around it as one of the Blues players who are on the hot form is currently playing for the Saints, but he won’t be able to feature in this encounter based on the agreement on the loan move which would see him automatically ruled out of making an appearance.
So much will be happening here this afternoon as they both need a win to ensure their season continues to go in the way of working out something for them as it continues to look not so good in terms of their recent run of form mostly for the Champions of the World who are struggling.
The home side has been fair enough this season which has seen them winning games nobody expected them to win despite all the odds and some of their key players sold after the conclusion of last campaign which also was a good one from the team who once had Sadio Mane and Virgil Van Dijk.
SOUTHAMPTON STARTING LINEUP
Fraser Forster (Goalkeeper); Valentino Livramento, Jan Bednarek, Mohammed Salisu, Kyle Walker-Peters (Defenders); James Ward-Prowse, Oriol Romeu, Stuart Armstrong (Midfielders); Mohamed Elyounoussi (Attacker); Adam Armstrong, Che Adams (Strikers).
CHELSEA STARTING LINEUP
Edouard Mendy (Goalkeeper); Andreas Christensen, Thiago Silva, Antonio Rudiger (Defenders); Ruben Loftus Cheek, NGolo Kante, Mateo Kovacic, Marcos Alonso (Midfielders); Mason Mount, Timo Werner (Attackers); Kai Havertz (Striker).
Solid starting lineup from both managers as they hope to make something happen here in this encounter which is expected to be cagey and anything could come through knowing how the Blues played in their last encounter which wasn’t impressive on any level of football.
Southampton Vs Chelsea have played against each other twice already this season which has happened in the English Premier League and also in the EFL Carabao Cup that was in favor of the Champions of the World on both occasions when they met for the ongoing campaign.
Their last clash in the Premier League was a game that saw both teams hitting the back of the net, but it was the Blues who got the last laugh as they finished off the game winning 3-1 after 90 minutes of football which was played on that day at Stamford Bridge which was eventful.
The meeting in the EFL Carabao Cup was tight as they both played out a goalless draw all through until heading to the penalties which saw the Blues coming out victorious but unfortunately couldn’t get past Liverpool in the final to win the title which was also decided via penalties which lasted long for both teams.
Chelsea has been on a back to back defeats which started with Brentford coming from behind to thrash them 1-4 before Real Madrid was able to hit them down with another heavy 1-3 defeat which both of them happened at Stamford Bridge in a few days between both matches.
Southampton has been cruising so far this season with Armando Broja leading the striking force which has seen them getting some impressive results before their recent fall of form which led to a couple of losses before managing a 1-1 draw against Leeds United in their last match played in the Premier League.
