Southampton vs Chelsea Preview
This is a key game for the bookmakers favourites Chelsea, as a win could see them take top spot in the Premier League table depending on other results.
Even though they have a home advantage, Southampton may struggle to secure a victory against a Chelsea side that's starting to show some form.
Claude Puel’s men have won just two of their last 14 games against Chelsea, and Conte's side have lost just one of their last eight matches played at St Mary’s Stadium!
Chelsea managed a late comeback to emerge victorious the last time these teams met, and it’s easy to see why bookmakers offer them as favourites for Sunday’s clash.
Southampton vs Chelsea is live on Sky Sports 1 at 16:00 on Sunday 30th October.
Southampton's Best Odds: 11/5
If you’re betting on Southampton stopping Chelsea's march up the table, William Hill offers best odds on Chelsea at 11/10.
Claude Puel’s men come into this game sitting in 8th place on 13 points.
Although they’ve only won 3 of their 9 games this season, Southampton head into this weekend’s game on the back of a five match unbeaten run in the Premier League.
They’ve gone through a pretty turbulent time of late, but they seem to be getting back on track, which was clear in their last outing when they held Man City to a draw.
Unfortunately there are quite a few players potentially missing for Southampton , which could make it harder for them to secure a win against Chelsea.
Both Jay Rodriguez and Shane Long have been ruled out of the match against Chelsea and neither have a return date, while Pied is out for the rest of the season.
In good news, Targett, Bertrand and Soares are all expected back for this weekend’s game and Charlie Austin has been banging in the goals of late.
Chelsea's Best Odds: 7/5
If you’re betting on Chelsea beating Southampton, Coral offers best odds at 7/5.
Conte’s men come into the Southampton game sitting in 4th place in the table and just 1 point behind current Premier League league leaders Man City.
Although Chelsea had an unlucky run losing against both Arsenal and Liverpool, their form has improved with 3 back to back victories with a 4-0 victory over Man Utd last weekend.
If they can maintain this form they could easily come away from St Mary's with all three points.
Luckily Conte doesn’t have too many injury worries, although Fabregas is expected to be missing from the squad until sometime next month.
There’s also no return date yet for van Ginkel, but Ivanovic is in contention for the game.
Best Odds On A Draw: 12/5
Two out of the last four times that Southampton have played Chelsea have ended in draws, so a stalemate on Sunday afternoon is as strong possibility.
For those betting on a draw, Bet Victor offers best odds on the result at 12/5.
