Chelsea won four points more than its today’s opponent and that was expect, although the team from London cannot be satisfied. Southampton is doing fine but it was defeated in two previous rounds. Chelsea results are variable and they won at home in the previous round, and in the Champions League during the week. Chelsea had easily triumphed in Southampton last season, 3-0.
A weak start and two defeats at the very beginning of season, then a good period of three-game unbeaten streak which was replaced with defeats in next two rounds. That is what Southampton achieved so far, and we need to add that they already passed two obstacles in the League Cup. Out of four defeats two can be justified due to the strength of the opponents, although Southampton put up an excellent resistance to both Liverpool and Tottenham and was defeated by modest 2-1. They played the worst against Burnley away when they lost by 3-0 and two rounds ago against Bornemouth at home. They lost by 3-1 and after which Yoshida, Bertrand and Ings refreshed the team that faced Tottenham. Southampton had to do better because of having a player more in the second half, but nevertheless we don’t new expect changes in the team.
Chelsea plays variably and wins come after losses lately, and it is visible they have problems with derby matches. They lost to Manchester United away, and two rounds ago at home to Liverpool. The guests won by 2-1 although they hoped that after a good game and victory over Wolverhampton they will be able to do more. In between those matches had squeezed in an unexpected defeat by Valencia at Stamford Bridge in the Champions League, however, they made their situation better after away triumph over Lille. Out of action are Loftus-Cheek, Rudiger and Emerson.
Southampton played well against two strong rivals and had managed to score in those matches. We expect to do the same now since Chelsea oscillates, although it should be able to score as well.
