Chelsea are to going to clash with Southampton today in London at Stamford Bridge for the Premier League fixture – a match that was delayed because of former’s FA Cup semi-final match.
Chelsea has been a team that faltered the least during the entire season right to the last few matches when it couldn’t continue winning the games and ended up losing two of their last four Premier League games. This effectively reduced their lead substantially and a win against Southampton is a must if the club wants to ensure that they remain atop the Premier League charts and win it.
Chelsea has things going in its favor this particular match considering that Eden Hazard has come off of the bench. Willian is in awesome form and it was evident in the last match that Chelsea played. N’Golo Kante has been pivotal as well in the midfield.
Southampton has also been great this season, but have been predictably solid. Charlie Austin has found net for them a good number of times, but Nathan Redmond and Dusan Tadic’s play has been superb in the midfield. Contending with Chelsea’s midfield is another beast entirely, but they could be up to the task on the road for Tuesday’s match.

With their recent form in Premier League play, Chelsea are on the verge of making a race at the top of the table. That’s far from what they’d want, though, so they’ll need to be better to rectify that. Holding court at Stamford Bridge against Southampton would go a long way in helping the cause.
