Southampton vs Chelsea match stats

Southampton’s 44 home goals conceded against Chelsea is the most they’ve shipped against a single side in the Premier League, while only at Spurs (51) have the Blues scored more on the road. Southampton have won just three of their last 20 midweek (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday) Premier League games (remaining games ending in seven draws and 10 losses). The Saints have a lower win rate on Tuesdays than they do any other day of the week in the Premier League (21% – 9/44).

Since the start of March, Southampton have lost more Premier League matches than any other side (11), winning just nine points from 16 matches in that time (two draws, three draws and 11 losses). Southampton have also lost six of their last eight home Premier League matches (remaining games ending in one win and one draw). They’ve already lost as many home games in 2022 (six losses across 12 matches) as they did in 2021 (six losses across 20 matches).

Chelsea have scored in each of their last 17 Premier League away games against Southampton, winning 6-0 in this exact fixture last season. It’s the longest scoring streak one team has had against another away from home in the history of the competition. After suffering a 3-0 defeat at Elland Road against Leeds, Chelsea are looking to avoid losing consecutive away Premier League games for the first time since December 2020. Manager Thomas Tuchel hasn’t lost consecutive away league games since August 2019 with Paris Saint Germain.

Mason Mount has been involved in five goals in his four Premier League starts against Southampton (four goals and one assist), while only against Norwich (5) has he scored more Premier League goals than he has against Saints (4). Only against West Ham (14 – 8 goals and 6 assists) has Chelsea’s Raheem Sterling been involved in more Premier League goals than he has against Southampton (11 – 7 goals and 4 assists). Chelsea have seen a player sent off in each of their last two Premier League games, with Kalidou Koulibaly seeing red against Leeds and Conor Gallagher against Leicester. It’s the first time they’ve had a red in consecutive games since October 2014; the Blues have never had a player sent off in three games in a row.
