Reason for Chelsea vs Southampton Predictions
Southampton is unbeaten in three of their previous four meetings with Chelsea. They were level until late in the second half of their recent Premier League meeting, the dismissal of James Ward-Prowse turning the tide in favor of the Blues. Chelsea has failed to win three of their last four home games against Southampton, with both teams scoring in the past two meetings. However, those previous editions of Chelsea were coached by different managers and were, by consequence, weaker then than they are present. The Blues have won four of their last six home matches in all competitions. The win over Norwich proved their strength in depth. They put seven goals past a Premier League team without having their two first-choice forwards on the pitch. Back Chelsea to win with over 2.5 goals in the game. Christian Pulisic (Ankle Injury) and Romelu Lukaku (Sprain) won’t be able to feature for Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel. Hakim Ziyech plays fantastically and creates a lot of problems for the opposition’s defense. Many clubs are ready to give a fortune for the arrival of this guy. Timo Werner is an incredible player, and in the one-on-one game, he is unstoppable. He should build upon his last season’s performance.
Two Premier League sides will play in the EFL Cup on Tuesday night when Chelsea welcomes Southampton to Stamford Bridge. The Blues are fresh off the back of a 7-0 league win at the weekend, having thrashed Norwich in their most recent home outing. Southampton, meanwhile, played out a much tighter affair with Burnley, the game finishing 2-2. It was the fifth time in six matches that Southampton had failed to emerge victoriously at the end of normal time. Away from home, results have been decent, all things considered. They only lost one of their previous five away matches. Although that statement alone could offer encouragement, the details are less encouraging, as the only away match they lost was their most recent one, and it was at Chelsea. James Ward-Prowse has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. Moussa Djenepo enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and moves towards the goal, the opponent has problems.
Chelsea is a big favorite in this match, and they are expected to solve the question of the winner at halftime.
The prediction for this match is over 2.5 goals. We hope that football fans will enjoy this match.
