Chelsea will be looking to bounce back after crashing out of the Champions League in midweek with a win over Southampton on Sunday.
Get 6/1 for Chelsea to win at Coral.
The Blues comfortably sit five points clear at the top of the Premier League table with a game in hand, but will be shaken by their European exit on Wednesday night. They are unbeaten in their last seven league games but come up against the best defence in the competition this weekend in a Southampton side which still harbours aspirations of a top-four finish.
When Jose Mourinho’s side were knocked-out of the Champions League last season following a semi-final defeat to Atletico Madrid, they drew 0-0 against relegated Norwich City the next weekend. We’re predicting another European hangover, but having not lost a home game at Stamford Bridge all season, a draw is a more likely result.
The sides drew 1-1 in December at St Mary’s and a repeat scoreline is our first football betting tip at 15/2 with William Hill.
Southampton have fallen to seventh place in the league table after sitting in the Champions League places for the majority of the campaign. Ronald Koeman’s side have lost three of their last six matches but still have hopes of getting their campaign back on track and qualifying for Europe next season.
Their leading goalscorer this season, Graziano Pelle, has not netted in his last six matches. Chelsea’s leading-man Diego Costa is also going through a goal-drought having not scored in nearly 11 hours of play. Eden Hazard produced a superb strike in the 1-1 result between the sides in December, and the Belgian to score anytime is 12/5 with Bet365 and is our second Chelsea v Southampton betting tip.
Chelsea are the only side to have recovered anything from a game this season in which the Saints have taken the lead. We’re predicting a slow start from the Blues and therefore our final betting tip for Chelsea v Southampton is Chelsea to come from behind and win or draw, which is priced at 17/4 with Ladbrokes.
Southampton spent their weekend off last week with a team-bonding trip in the icy-cold climate of the Swiss Alps. However, they’ll be hoping to heat-up their top-four aspirations with a result against Chelsea on Sunday.
