Chelsea v Southampton – Premier League
Chelsea return to action on Saturday after two weeks off when they entertain Southampton at Stamford Bridge.
A 14-day break seems like ages in a pandemic-condensed season, but many Blues players did not get the chance to rest. Much of our squad racked up thousands of miles with their national teams competing around the globe.
Following the home win against Crystal Palace last time out, we could climb as high as second in the table with another three points. But after losing their opening two games, the Saints recorded successive league victories and sit just a point behind us.
The Londoners will want to avenge last season’s corresponding match. Despite recording twice the possession and having twice as many shots on goal, the south-coast club were the 2–0 winners. This time, we hope to come out on top in the match and in the table.
Tune in to cheer on the Blues this Saturday!
