Chelsea Starting XI Prediction vs Southampton FC

Chelsea gave up a goal in just 11 seconds after coming back from halftime last night in Wednesday’s 1-0 UCL loss at Juventus. It was a backbreaking blitz of a play, and hopefully for Chelsea’s sake, manager Thomas Tuchel has figured out how and why the breakdown occurred, and he’ll adjust for it on the weekend in the next fixture.

The good news is that Chelsea are favored, -278, to win that fixture, a domestic clash against Southampton FC, who are backed at +750. A draw pays +375, so clearly, the wagering community believes the Blues will snap their two game skid here.

Chelsea Team News vs Southampton, Pulisic, Mount, Kante, James

Chelsea FC will host Southampton FC on Saturday in their final match before the international break. After the internationals, they’ll return to Premier League action with an Oct. 16 visit to red hot Brentford.

They fell last night at Juventus, in Champions League play, and Blues boss Thomas Tuchel compared the loss and the lack of luck they had to last weekend’s Man City clash, which saw Chelsea’s three match winning streak against the current champions fall by the wayside.

Man City Team News vs Southampton: Stones, Sterling, Foden

It was a night to remember on Wednesday as Manchester City produced a breath-taking attacking display and managed to beat RB Leipzig 6-3 in the opener to their Champions League campaign. With Southampton coming to the Etihad on Saturday, for a league fixture, a repeat of that performance is expected by many.

Pep Guardiola has managed to turn things around for City after they lost the first two competitive matches of the season. The club is on a four-match winning streak, and at the moment they are looking unstoppable. So who are the players who could miss out this weekend?

Southampton FC 2021 Summer Transfer Window Report Card

Southampton FC have not won any of their first three Premier League matches, and they’re still stuck on five wins in 2021. It’s looking like they’ll be fighting to avoid relegation, at the end of the season yet again.

They took in more money than they spent this summer, and when you look at their roster, the overall talent and experience drain reflects that.

Manchester United Starting XI Prediction at Southampton FC

Manchester United sit top of the table after the first week of Premier League competition. Is this the year they finally contend for the league title all the way to the finish? It hasn’t happened since Sir Alex Ferguson retired.

Week two sees the Red Devils take on a much weaker side, in Southampton FC, whom they have dominated lately, so it’s fair to say United could stay in the penthouse perch after this weekend’s action. Especially since they have a host of players coming back into the squad, and thus adding options and depth.

United Team News at Southampton: Cavani, Varane, Henderson, Lingard

Sunday will see Manchester United travel to Southampton FC, where they will take on a side that they have really dominated lately. Several United players come back into the fold/have an increased role, including the two summer signings.

Raphael Varane will be registered in time to make his debut in a red shirt, while Jadon Sancho will be available to start and go the full 90 minutes. Additionally, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Elanga have resumed training, and will be in the mix for Sunday squad selection.

2021-22 Southampton FC Season Preview, Prospectus

ralph hasenhuttl

While this opinions has absolutely no bearing on my season preview/outlook, I just want to say that I personally think Ralph Hassenhuttl is the most likeable manager who will be on the Premier League touchline this year.

For Southampton FC, the departure of Danny Ings (which feels like it came out of nowhere) less than two weeks before the start of the season has got to have thrown things substantially off track. If Saints can’t find a replacement between now and deadline day, I fear that the sting of that loss might permeate throughout their entire campaign.

Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Talk: Ings, Vlahovic, Tomayisu, Kounde

As Tottenham Hotspur head into the upcoming season under new manager Nuno Espirito Santo, they are in serious danger of falling further down the Premier League table. Coming off a very disappointing seventh place finish, they have done little to nothing in the summer transfer window.

And when you’re standing still, you’re actually falling behind, in reality. A number of players have been linked with a move to north London, but none of them appear close to being a part of Nuno’s new setup.

Per a report from Football London, Tottenham Hotspur are interested in securing the services of striker Danny Ings from Southampton FC. The Englishman has transformed his career ever since moving to the Saints from Liverpool. His excellent form has seen the forward notch up 41 league goals since arriving at St. Mary’s Stadium.

The Athletic had earlier reported that Ings refused an offer to extend his contract with Southampton. There are only 12 months left on the 28-year-old’s current deal and he could leave for free at the end of next season.

West Ham vs Southampton Team News: Fabianski, Lanzini, Masuaku, Adams

West Ham United hosts Southampton FC on Championship Sunday in a match-up of two sides that have spent much of the season higher up in the table than anyone expected.

The Hammers were in the top four race up until just a couple of weeks ago while Saints were actually top of the table in November and in the top four discussion after New Year’s. Not bad for a couple of teams that were just happy to stay up in the Premier League last season. Let’s preview!

West Ham United Starting XI Prediction vs Southampton FC

West Ham United hosts Southampton FC on Championship Sunday in a match that will see the Hammers focusing on trying to clinch Europa League qualification.

A result against the lower table south coast club means that the Irons can avoid Europa Conference League and go to the second tier continental competition instead of the third tier tourney. That’s a huge win considering where they finished last season, when manager David Moyes was just happy to keep his side up in the Premiership.
