Southampton vs Chelsea – Premier League : Southampton hosts Chelsea at the St. Mary’s Stadium this Saturday in the Premier League
Everyone was waiting for Southampton to react in the Premier League.
But they didn’t do it. Therefore, they come into this final stretch desperate to manage to leave the relegation zone.
At the moment, the team occupies the 18th place with 28 points – 3 points behind the first team out of the relegation zone that is Crystal Palace.
Playing at home, the team has one of the worst records of the competition, with only 3 victories, 7 draws and 6 losses, with a record of 16 goals scored and 21 goals conceded.
Chelsea no longer has any major ambitions in the Premier League. At most, they want to consolidate their 5th place, that is still being threatened by Arsenal and ensure their spot on the next Europa League.

Like I’ve already said in previous analysis about Southampton, they were always a very overvalued team by the bookmakers on this edition of the Premier League, maybe by some of their recent campaigns or by some of the players they have on their roster.
But they never lived up to that expectations this season. Now their situation is critical. They are at serious risk of being relegated and they need to get some points.
Southampton vs Chelsea – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Playing at home, they should adopt a more aggressive approach against Chelsea.
On the other hand, the still English champions have also been making a campaign below what would be expected.
Away from the main competitions, the most that Chelsea might reach is the Europa League.
Therefore, and especially by the need and exposure that need will provoke, I believe this will be an encounter with goals.
