Chelsea FC v Leicester City - Premier League
Chelsea take on Southampton this week

The Premier League returns to the fold with another round of matches this week as Southampton lock horns with Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea outfit in an important clash at St. Mary's Stadium on Tuesday.

Southampton vs Chelsea Preview

Southampton are currently in 14th place in the Premier League standings and have not been at their best so far this season. The Saints suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester United over the weekend and will need to take it up a notch in this fixture.

Chelsea, on the other hand, are in sixth place in the league table at the moment and have been inconsistent this season. The Blues edged Leicester City to a 2-1 victory in their previous game and will look to achieve another positive result this week.

Southampton are yet to hit their stride this season but did show flashes of their ability against Manchester United. Chelsea are the better team on paper, however, and should be able to win this game.
