The Saints have a daunting task this weekend as they travel to Stamford Bridge to take on the mighty Blues who are reeling after a big loss against Manchester City recently. And on this note, Alley Sport has for you the Chelsea vs Southampton Preview, Prediction, Latest H2H record from this 2021//22 Premier League gameweek before the October international break.

Chelsea vs Southampton Preview

Chelsea received a big blow to their title credentials this weekend when they were clearly bettered by Manchester City. The Blues parked the bus but still succumbed to a 1-0 defeat that saw Manchester City climb level on points with them. It wasn’t the scoreline or the result that was the most damaging considering it is still early days in the title race. But it was the manner of defeat that was the most disheartening.

Can Thomas Tuchel really defend his way to the title? Parking the bus in such a manner as they did was embarrassing to say the very least and it may not work as well in the Premier League as it has for Diego Simeone in La Liga. Against Southampton, they have the chance to showcase their attacking intent and their title credentials. The Saints are not having a good season at all.

Southampton are without a win this season and this could be only the third time in their history that they fail to win any game in their opening 7 matches of the season. Their attack is also misfiring heavily after Danny Ings’ departure but they can take comfort knowing the fact that 75% of Thomas Tuchel’s Premier League defeats at Chelsea have come at Stamford Bridge.
