Chelsea are currently on their joint-worst run of the season, losing their past two matches, and things are in danger of unravelling. The poor run started with a 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Brentford in the Premier League last weekend, which has left Chelsea just five points clear of fifth-placed Arsenal – with a game against the Gunners to come.

Then in midweek, Chelsea’s Champions League defence was left in tatters thanks to another home defeat, this time to Real Madrid. A Karim Benzema defeat has put Chelsea on the brink of exit in the Champions League, giving Real Madrid a 3-1 lead to take into next week’s second leg. And Chelsea cannot afford to put their focus on that tie with a tough visit to Southampton on the way.

Southampton may be going into this game off the back of a four-match winless streak, but they have been known to cause Chelsea problems of late. With very little to play for, even with eight games left on the season, Southampton have perhaps taken their foot off the pedal, losing three matches in a row including two against relegation-battling sides.

Back-to-back 2-1 defeats to Watford and Newcastle may have had some fans worried, but Southampton have found some return stability with a draw against Leeds last weekend. As a result, Southampton remain 12 points clear of the relegation zone and are also just one point behind ninth-placed Crystal Palace.

Southampton vs Chelsea: Match Stats

Despite their humbling defeat to Brentford last weekend, Chelsea did continue a positive trend. The Blues have now scored first in each of their past seven Premier League matches, their longest such run since November 2019 (which stopped at second).

With Armando Broja ineligible, Southampton’s attacking woes look set to continue, but Chelsea aren’t too prolific in attack either, managing just three goals in their past three matches. At the same time, this isn’t expected to be a dirty match, with both sides averaging lower than two cards per game in the Premier League this season.

Chelsea used to love playing Southampton but they haven’t had much success against the south coast club of late. Three of the past four games across all competitions between these two sides have ended level, including the EFL Cup fourth-round tie that Chelsea did eventually win on penalties. Southampton haven’t beat Chelsea at home since March 2013, a run of eight games without victory.
