Chelsea vs Southampton: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The Blues had recorded 24 of the preceding 30 overall match-ups.
  • They had scored two or more goals in seven of their former ten encounters.
  • At this stadium, the hosts had recorded 11 of the preceding 14 wins.
  • They had also kept clean sheets in three of the preceding four games at this ground.

Chelsea vs Southampton: Prediction

Both sides have had an average start to the season, with Chelsea’s lucky 3-3 draw against West Brom, after going 3-0 down, their biggest downfall thus far. One thing Lampard’s men have impressed with, however, is scoring goals, averaging 2.5 goals per game this season, and with the potential return of Christian Pulisic and debut for Hakim Ziyech, it can be expected to see plenty of goals fly in. In regards to goals going the other way, Chelsea have conceded in three out of their four matches played, and sometimes it only takes one attempt for Danny Ings to punish sides, so look out for a potential goal from him. Despite this, Chelsea are the far superior side on paper, and should take all three points, so a Chelsea win, BTTS and over 2.5 goals is tempting.
