Southampton vs Chelsea Preview and Livestream
The Saints have begun this season poorly in the Premier League. One way to redeem themselves right now is to beat the giants that are Chelsea and book a place for themselves in the last eight. That is, however, easier said than done. The Blues were FA Cup finalists and UEFA Champions League winners last season.
They know how to get the job done. Southampton have beaten Newport County by 8-0 and former Premier League side Sheffield United on penalties to get here. A shock win against Chelsea can’t be ruled out considering the Blues will field a weakened team, but given that the Saints haven’t beaten them since October 2015 shows the disparity in quality between the two teams.
Southampton vs Chelsea 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.
The match will be shown on Sky Sports channels in the United Kingdom, who are the official broadcasters and the highlights will be available for livestream on Quest in UK and Ireland. The broadcasting rights of the League Cup, or the EFL Cup, in the USA lies with ESPN. For fans in India, the game is telecasted live on MTV Channel.

Southampton vs Chelsea Prediction
European Champions Chelsea are a force to be reckoned with in this one. Their second team is still miles better than Southampton’s. Southampton, on the other hand, are poor in attack and open in defence this season and barring a miracle, we don’t see them getting anything there at Stamford Bridge. We go with a 3-1 win for Thomas Tuchel’s men.
