Chelsea vs Southampton Preview and Livestream
Chelsea suffered a terrible loss to Tottenham Hotspur in round 4 of the competition last season under Frank Lampard. Thomas Tuchel then took over, and helped Chelsea take over Europe by conquering the UEFA Champions League. This season, they have already beaten Aston Villa in Tuchel’s first match in the competition’s history.
But that game was dragged to a penalty shoot-out, something the German manager would be eager to avoid against the Saints. Their opponents are reeling in the league and are hovering just above the relegation zone. Low on confidence and a daunting trip to Stamford Bridge, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men don’t really stand a chance in this one.
Chelsea vs Southampton kicks off at Stamford Bridge Stadium in London on Tuesday, 26th October 2021 at 06:45 PM GMT. This means that the game will start at 02:45 PM EST and 11:45 AM PST on the same date, 26th October. For fans in India, the game starts at 12:15 AM on Wednesday, 27th October.

Chelsea vs Southampton Prediction
The Blues are a force to be reckoned with in this one. Their second team is still miles better than Southampton’s. The Saints are poor in attack and open in defence this season and barring a miracle, we don’t see them getting anything there in London. We go with a 3-1 win for the Blues at home.
