2017-2018 Premier League Prediction: Southampton vs Chelsea
Match Date: 14 April 2018 | 7:30PM (GMT+8)
Match Venue: St. Mary’s Stadium
12BET (Football Betting Tips) Southampton are too desperate to gather as much points as they can when they host Chelsea on weekend. Why? It’s because apparently, the Saints have failed to score in the last three domestic league games. This made the club to further struggle in the relegation zone.

As much as the Saints would like to claim victory in the upcoming battle against Chelsea, the club will certainly have difficulty in doing so.
Defender Jack Stephens was sent off after getting a red card against Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere. Other than Stephens, Mario Lemina and Shane Long are both not joining the match due to injury.
However, Nathan Redmond and Charlie Austin could be featured in the starting XI with manager Mark Huges potentially moving to a 4-2-3-1 setup.
Chelsea are hoping to put their disappointing 1-1 draw with West Ham behind and get back on their old winning ways.
As coach Antonio Conte’s men traverse the road to St. Mary’s, his team will be without the presence of Ethan Ampadu and David Luiz due to injury. But then, Andreas Christensen may come in the game and perform at the backline.
Southampton Manager Mark Hughes’ squad will be aiming to at least settle the weekend game in a draw. But considering how the Saints play in their recent domestic campaign, this might be another disappointing game for them.
