CHELSEA will be aiming to record back-to-back wins in the Premier League for the first time this season when they meet Southampton at St Mary’s live here on Kilamity.
Although Chelsea appear to be going through a transition period under coach Thomas Tuchel, they did open their season by earing a hard-fought 1-0 win at Everton.
However, a chaotic 2-2 draw with London rivals Tottenham was followed by a 3-0 drubbing at Leeds, a pair of setbacks that brought the Blues back down to earth with a bang.
That being said, 10-man Chelsea showed real fighting spirit to beat Leicester 2-1 at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, so they should have a spring in their step ahead of their midweek visit to Southampton.
Ralph Hasenhüttl’s hosts have made a mixed start to the new season, as they’ve taken four points from 12 in the Premier League.
The Saints got up an running after drawing with Leeds and a subsequent win at Leicester, however their momentum was halted by a 1-0 defeat against Manchester United on Saturday.
