Southampton vs Chelsea Prediction and Preview: Can the Blues Continue to Climb the Table?

Southampton betting tips

Southampton vs Chelsea prediction and betting tips for Sunday 6th October fixture at 2:00 pm. Chelsea could potentially push into the top four with a win at St Mary’s.

After a shaky start Chelsea are very much on the up. In the last week Frank Lampard has secured his first home win, first clean sheet and first Champions League win as Chelsea manager when they got a late winner in France against Lille.

 

Southampton vs Chelsea Preview: 07/10/19

The Blues come into this fixture in seventh place, tied with Tottenham and just one point off the top four. Only Manchester City and Liverpool have outscored Chelsea in the league this season but only Norwich and Watford have conceded more. This open style of play is certainly entertaining for the neutral, but conceding too many goals will cost Chelsea eventually.

Southampton currently sit in fourteenth place. Back-to-back losses have halted any momentum they had built under Ralph Hasenhuttl. A lack of goals has been The Saints’ main issue, scoring just seven in seven and that doesn’t look like changing very quickly. The likes of Danny Ings and Shane Long are never going to score a bagful of goals so they need to rely on the midfielders to make up the scoring numbers.

 

Chelsea to cruise to victory

The Blues dominated against Brighton and never looked in danger once they had taken the lead. Chelsea limited Brighton’s opportunities to keep their first clean sheet of the season. Southampton have a similarly poor offensive record and will struggle to pose a threat. Chelsea to win is priced at 17/20 and that looks a good bet to start off this weekend’s Southampton vs Chelsea predictions. It is tough to see the Saints getting a result here despite Chelsea having a match in midweek and being away from home.

 

Tammy Abraham to bag another brace

Chelsea’s new no.9 is on has got his first senior England call up after an impressive start to the season. He has now hit eight goals in all competitions after scoring midweek against Lille. Abraham has scored two or more on three of his six Premier League starts. He is priced at 5/1 to score two or more this weekend and that looks a good bet based on the new England striker’s stats. He was prolific in-front of goal in the Championship for Aston Villa last season and looks set to finish this season with a big tally too.

 

Southampton vs Chelsea Score Prediction – Chelsea to win 3-1

Chelsea’s defensive displays have been far from convincing but so has Southampton’s attack. Even so, a Southampton goal isn’t out of the question with Che Adams unlucky to still be searching for his first. Chelsea’s fire power should see them win comfortably. 3-1 is priced at 14/1 but if you use the Grosvenor Sports sign-up offer for this weekend, you’ll get double the original odds for your first bet.
