SOU vs CHE Live: Match Preview
The Saints will feel they should have done better against Manchester United. The Red Devils only scored one goal but at times Southampton did manage to give them good competition. However, they lacked the finesse in the final third.
On the other hand, Chelsea who are known for their defensive prowess have only kept one clean sheet in three games. At times they have also struggled to create chances or take them. Thomas Tuchel is yet to find the right balance in attack for his side. While Southampton will be happy to sit back and hit on counterattacks. However, the game will be decided in wider areas.
It will be up to the Chelsea wingers whether they are able to run at the Saints defenders and create chances or play safe. On the other hand, Ralph Hasenhüttl will instruct his team to put more pressure on the wings and counterattack.

SOU vs CHE Live: Players to Watch out for
James Warden Prowse (Southampton)
The current Saints team is a very young and talented team. This has been a deliberate approach by the hierarchy at the club. However, they still need a leader and a captain with experience who can guide them. The Englishman is the player to whom the Southampton players look up to and in this game as well they will look up to him.
Raheem Sterling (Chelsea)
A big issue for the Blues will be their lack of goal-scoring ability. In the present squad Sterling is the only accomplished forward in front of goal. The Blues will be looking up to him for a moment of inspiration or magic to get them going.
SOU vs CHE Dream11 Prediction:
Goalkeeper: Eduard Mendy
Defenders: Recce James, Thiago Silva, Mohammed Salisu, Armel Bella-Kotchap, Kyle Walker-Peters
Midfielders: Jorginho, Ruben Loftus Cheek, James Warden Prowse
Attackers: Raheem Sterling, Che Adams
Twelfth Man Times Prediction: Southampton 0-1 Chelsea
Thomas Tuchel’s men just have more quality over the home side. This difference in the quality of players will be the difference maker between them and the Saints.
