Southampton vs Chelsea
Southampton welcomes Chelsea in a match from the 34th round of the English Premier League.
Southampton continues their fight for survival in the elite division. Right now the Saints are not in a good position, being 18th in the Premier League with 28 points. Their record shows 5 wins, 13 draws and 14 defeats.In their last five games, Southampton is without a win – two draws and three consecutive defeats against Newcastle, West Ham and Arsenal. The club’s board sacked Mauricio Pellegrino and replaced him with Mark Hughes, but it’s still about to be seen if this change is going to do something good for the team.Right now Southampton is on 3 points behind the 17th Crystal Palace, so their situation is not easy at all. Right now they are in a serious danger to get relegated to the Championship.
Chelsea, on the other hand, are impatient for this season to finish. The champions are 5th in the Premier League with 57 points, trailing on 10 points without the 4th Tottenham. This means that almost surely the Blues are not going to play in the Champions League next season.
Chelsea’s manager Antonio Conte is going to leave the club at the end of the season. Last year the Italian tactician led Chelsea to the title, but now his work there is not as successful as it was. It’s time for a change at the Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea has a record of 17 wins, 6 draws and 9 defeats in the league. In their last five games, they won just once, suffering three defeats and making one draw. Clearly, they are far away from their levels from the last season, when they dominated the league and managed to win it.
This is our take on the Premier League game between Southampton and Chelsea. Good luck!
