Southampton vs Chelsea Prediction & Tips
Southampton in free fall, Chelsea very fast. The two teams face off for the twenty-fifth day of the Premier League with the saints who have to raise their heads at home after a dark period that made them fall to thirteenth place with 29 points. Five league defeats in a row, the last two with Wolves and Newcastle. Chelsea changed gears with the arrival of Tuchel on the bench. The 2-0 wins with Newcastle and 2-1 with Sheffield are just the latest in a streak of four straight league wins. Now the blues are at 42 points and are fourth, minus four from Leicester-Manchester United. The new technical guide has focused heavily on the defense that is unbeaten in two games and is the second least beaten in the entire Premier with 24 goals on the passive.
