Maurizio Sarri’s men are one of 3 teams in Europe yet to lose a match this season in any competition. The blues have registered 8 wins and 2 draws and will visit St. Mary’s stadium on Sunday with great momentum in their side. With majority of players rested against Vidi on Thursday, the players have had enough rest and preparation for the game. With two defeats and a draw in their last three premier league matches, Southampton are likely to possess less threat in our defensive areas. However, as Chelsea have set foot as one of the contenders to lift the trophy cum May, Southampton will be trying their every bit to at least gain a point against genuine title contenders. Chelsea and Southampton faced each other three times last season with Chelsea winning all those matches. I expect a similar kind of performance from the team .
My Prediction SOU: 1 – 3: Chelsea
