Chelsea FC Starting XI Prediction vs Southampton FC


chelsea fc

Chelsea FC travel to Southampton FC on Sunday looking to stay undefeated on the Premier League season. They are also looking to get back in the win column, having played their last two league matches to a stalemate. They’ll face a Saints side that is looking to move up the table, as they currently reside perilously close to the drop zone.

While Manchester City and Liverpool are the favorites to win the title, don’t count out the Blues as a dark horse contender. At the very least, their chances of a top four finish look great right now.

“I am really happy with the performance. We are improving match by match,” Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri said after his side’s last outing, a draw in league action against the aforementioned Reds.

“We played against a top-level team and we played very well with quality and intensity.”

Here’s the first team he fielded tonight against the Hungarian champions Vidi in the Europa League fixture. That said, here are the changes we anticipate he’ll make for the weekend league clash below.
