Chelsea betting tips

Chelsea vs Southampton betting tips and predictions for the Premier League Boxing Day fixture from Stamford Bridge. The Saints picked up an important away win last time out but face a tough task at Chelsea this week.

Will Chelsea continue their revival after getting back on track vs Spurs?

Danny Ings has been in red-hot goalscoring form for Southampton.

Kick-off time: 3pm Thursday 26th December.


Chelsea vs Southampton Score Prediction: 2-1

[inline_advert ad=”1″]

The Blues put in an excellent performance against Tottenham with Lampard demonstrating his tactical acumen to outthink Mourinho. Southampton come into this in good form with Ings scoring for fun and may well find a way past Chelsea.  Antonio Rudiger’s return is a big plus and Chelsea should have enough to see out a home win.


Chelsea vs Southampton Preview

Chelsea haulted a run of bad form with an impressive win over London rivals, Tottenham, in a heated affair. That win gave Chelsea a four point cushion over fifth placed Sheffield United, heading into Christmas. The Blues have the chance to extend that lead with a win over relegation-threatened Southampton.

The Saints have recorded three wins from their last five league games to lift them out of the bottom three. Their win over Aston Villa last time out has allowed them to leapfrog the Villains, with a three point gap between the sides.

Bet on Mason Mount to Score Anytime at 9/5

After a bright start, Mount has just one goal in ten games in the league. This is due in part to his deeper position in the Chelsea line up in recent weeks. Mount put in an excellent performance against Tottenham playing in a more advanced inside forward position. If he remains in this more advanced role he is a good prospect to return to scoring ways.

Bet on Under 3.5 Goals at 1.7

The goals have dried up a bit in Chelsea’s recent league games. Just one of the last five games have featured more than 3.5 goals with two featuring just one goal. Four of Southampton’s last five games have also featured fewer than 3.5 goals.
