Southampton Time vs. Chelsea, TV channel, broadcast, betting odds for the Premier League match

Both Chelsea and Southampton will be desperate to get back on track after some questionable recent results that threaten to undo much of the positive progress made until recently.

Southampton sit 12th in the Premier League, comfortably mid-table. Consistent form has been a problem for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side, who last won a league game when he hosted Norwich on February 25. Since then, he has lost three games in a row, before ending his losing streak with a draw at Leeds last time away.

The Saints look set for another quiet season, away from the scrap metal at the bottom of the table, and possibly moving into the top half if they finish strong. Their home record against Chelsea suggests they could find this game a trick, but Chelsea’s recent form means the hosts may have a chance.

Thomas Tuchel’s side have spent the season existing somewhere above the teams fighting for fourth place and below the two title contenders: solid, reliable, but not yet league winners. That reputation could be in jeopardy after the Blues followed up a 4-1 loss at home to Brentford with a 3-1 loss at home to Real Madrid.

A run of poor results could see them into the mix for fourth place towards the end of the season, and Tuchel will know that avoiding a poor finish here would go a long way towards ensuring a minor issue doesn’t turn into a run. so

Predicted line-ups Southampton vs. Chelsea

Hasenhuttl will have to do without the impressive Armando Broja in this match, as the striker will not be able to play against his parent club. But the former Chelsea player Valentino Livramento is expected to line up against his former team, with Kyle Walker Peters or Romain Perraud available on the rear left.

Goalkeeper alex maccarthy and center back lyanco both are out with injuries, but other than that, the Saints have a clean bill of health. stuart amstrong can return to midfield instead of Ibrahima Dialloalthough the latter impressed against Leeds.

Southampton Predicted Lineup (4-4-2): Forster (GK)—Livramento, Bednarek, Salisu, Walker-Peters—Armstrong, Ward-Prowse, Romeu, Elyounoussi—Adams, Armstrong

Thomas Tuchel doesn’t have much to worry about on the injury front. ben chilwell is the only confirmed absence, although Callum Hudson-Odoi can also be lost. However, recent performances may see the Chelsea manager looking to shuffle his pack and shake things up.

Romelu Lukaku is once again the subject of much discussion, and may be in line for a rare start to this game, though Kai Havertz playing up front is not one of Chelsea’s biggest problems at the moment.

Chelsea predicted lineup (3-4-3): Mendy (GK) – Chalobah, Silva, Sarr – Azpilicueta, Jorginho, Kovacic, Alonso – Mount, Havertz, Ziyech
