Southampton fought really hard in their last match but were unable to take even a single point. They will now have another challenging task coming their way, as they will host Chelsea on Sunday. Chelsea are coming off a nice win in the Europa League and have now built a winning streak in all competitions.

Southampton (2-4-1) are coming into this match after a 1-2 loss on the road against Tottenham, Their opponents took the lead at the 24th minute but saw a red card at the 31st . Southampton temporarily pulled even but conceded another goal to eventually lose by 1-2. Southampton have now lost each of their last two Premier League matches, but scored in both. They now reside at the 15th spot of the league table with 7 points. And they are just two points ahead of the red zone. They have scored in all three home matches so far, winning none (0-2-1). They also conceded twice in two of those matches.
On the other hand, Chelsea (3-2-2) are coming off a nice win against Lille in the Europa League. They scored a late goal to take a nice 2-1 win. That win came after another victory last week against Brighton (0-2 at home). The Blues have now won three in a row in all competitions. They are sitting at the 7th spot of the league table with 11 points, as many as Tottenham, Bournemouth and Crystal Palace. Chelsea have won all three away matches in all competitions this season.
Chelsea destroyed Southampton by 3-0 in this venue last season, before a goal-less draw in London. They are undefeated in their last eight matches against Southampton (7-0-1). They have also been tremendous in this venue in the past two decades (11-2-2), winning each of the last four. But this season they are not as good as previous seasons and Southampton could challenge them. In any case, looking at how both teams have fared so far, I am going with the Over 2.75 Goals.
Premier League Southampton vs Chelsea Prediction: Over 2.75 Goals (-114)
