Chelsea vs Southampton Betting Tips and Predictions: Premier League Preview
Chelsea vs Southampton betting tips and predictions for tonight’s Premier League fixture. Can Chelsea stay in the top 4 before the end of the season and will Southampton escape relegation?
It is hard to see anything other than a Chelsea victory in this match given the form of both teams. They have got back to winning ways after a shock defeat to Newcastle and Southampton have lost their last two matches after a mini-revival. We’re backing the three points to go to Stamford Bridge tonight with Chelsea also keeping a clean sheet.
Chelsea vs Southampton Predictions
Chelsea are looking to get stay into the top four after Arsenal got back to winning ways yesterday and there is going to be a real fight for the Champions League places, with Manchester United also improving under temporary boss Ole Gunner Solskjaer. The Saints have lost their last two matches and conceded five in that time and face a tough task at the Bridge tonight. New manager Ralph Hasenhüttl got off to a decent start as boss with wins over Arsenal and Huddersfield but Southampton still sit just one place above the relegation zone on goal difference. The first of tonight’s Chelsea vs Southampton predictions is for Chelsea to win the match and keep a clean sheet.
Chelsea vs Southampton Betting Tips
Edin Hazard is having one of his best spells in a Chelsea shirt this season and he can keep that going tonight with another goal. Chelsea’s lack of top class centre forward would be affecting them a lot more if it wasn’t for the Belgian star and he’s the man to be on for a first goalscorer betting tip. He’s already scored 12 goals this season and found the new in the reverse fixture when these two sides met at St Mary’s Stadium earlier in the season.
Danny Ings is Southampton’s top goalscorer this season and he’s 10/1 with Betfair to score the first goal tonight.
The second selection for tonight’s Premier League predictions on the match is Edin Hazard to score the first goal and the best odds for this are 10/3 at Paddy Power, where you get a £20 cash risk free bet when you open an account.
Chelsea vs Southampton Score Prediction
In our earlier betting tips, we went for Chelsea to win the match to nil and this can be backed up for punters looking to get a correct score bet at bigger odds. Chelsea should be comfortable winners of this match and manager Maurizio Sarri will be demanding three points from his players. The 1-0 defeat to Leicester has to be put down as a freak result because prior to that they had not conceded a goal in their previous five home games and they’d won two of them 2-0.
That is the scoreline we are going for tonight and the best odds for Chelsea to beat Southampton 2-0 are 6/1 with Bet Victor who are our bookmaker of choice for tonight’s betting tips.
If you fancy the upset, a 1-0 Southampton victory is priced at 33/1 with bet365.
The draw is 12/1 with bet365.
Chelsea to win 1-0 is 15/2 and a 3-0 win is 15/2 with Bet Victor also.
Chelsea vs Southampton Preview, Team News and Head to Head Stats
Chelsea will want to bounce back from defeat and it might be that Southampton are on the receiving end of a good Stamford Bridge performance here.
Sarri will have been fuming that his team lost 1-0 at home to Leicester and we fully expect them to bounce back to winning ways tonight.
Southampton need to pick up points but this is always a difficult place to come.
They’ve undoubtedly improved under Ralph Hasenhüttl and they have just about manager to get out of the Premier League relegation zone.
Chelsea may change their midfield around again and Ross Barkley could drop back down the bench after starting their last match.
Kepa will continue in goal and Luiz and Rudiger will carry on as the center back pairing.
Fabregas and Loftus-Cheek have got knocks but it’s unlikely that either would be in-line to start the match anyway.
Morata might get back into the team with Giroud another doubt.
Southampton will be looking for Danny Ings to continue his god scoring form.
Six changes were made by Ralph Hasenhüttl for the Manchester City match.
Ryan Bertrand and Cedric are both injured.
