Chelsea vs Southampton Predictions and Top Betting Tips

Chelsea cannot afford to drop more points and this is a match of the highest importance. Here are our Chelsea vs Southampton predictions.

Both Teams To Score Prediction: Yes

This is a very complicated matchup. Both sides are in their worst forms in years and we somehow expect goals, right? Chelsea have been good defensively but their attack struggles against even the weakest of teams. They should finally be able to score some goals against a team like Southampton. At the same time, the visitors have mostly been losing but we actually see them score goals in most games.

Match Result Prediction: Chelsea to Win

Will Chelsea get a better chance to win three points than this game? It is highly unlikely – Southampton are one of the weakest teams in the league right now. So, we think that Chelsea will finally pick up a positive result and win three vital points for the remainder of the season. Based on the Chelsea vs Southampton line ups and injury lists, Chelsea should be able to dominate in this game completely.

Correct Score Prediction: 2:1 to Chelsea

We expect a rather close game than a one-sided performance and Chelsea will win with one goal difference. Now, the question is whether we will see 2:1 or 1:0 but based on the performances of Southampton, we think that they will definitely concede two goals at least.

Chelsea vs Southampton: Form, Recent Games, and News

Chelsea Preview

Chelsea had a bad start and then made a key signing – Graham Potter as manager. For some time, it seemed like the team is improving – they had nine consecutive games without a defeat but then, it all fell apart. Right before the World Cup, Chelsea ended with four defeats in five games and now, after the WC, the situation is even worse. The team has a couple of wins in the last 15 games and they need immediate results. With over 600 million spent on transfers this season alone, Chelsea should be on the path of glory but it has been quite the opposite – a complete disaster.

As it stands, they are tenth in the Premier League. They are unbeaten in their last four league outings but have only won once in this period. Moreover, their last triumph came three matches prior at the expense of London rivals Crystal Palace. Their scoring form has been worrisome as they have only scored two goals in these fixtures but have been steadfast at the back, only shipping in one goal.

Southampton Preview

Southampton has had some serious struggles this season both in attack and defence. The team is in danger of getting relegated unless they find an improvement. Surprisingly, they did not even play a single friendly match during the World Cup and we definitely expected them to be out of shape. They won some points but the majority of the results have been defeats.

Like Chelsea, the Saints are in a quandary of their own. They sit at the bottom of the Premier League table, four points adrift of safety. Akin to Chelsea, they have only won once in their last four matches and that victory came three games ago as well. Struggling Everton paid for their triumph but the following three games have been a disaster, all finishing in defeats. They have only scored 18 goals this season and their 40 goals conceded in the second-worst output in the English top-flight in the 2022/23 campaign.
