Southampton Team News
Prior to the arrival of Chelsea, Ralph Hasenhuttl received some good news. Southampton could be without up to four first-team players on Saturday, including Chelsea loanee Armando Broja, who is unable to play against his parent club.
The good news is that Lyanco (match fitness) and Shane Long (ankle) may be able to play against Chelsea, albeit they will have to pass late fitness tests. While Alex McCarthy is on the verge of returning to action, he will most likely be out for another week before being considered for a Southampton starting position.
Southampton Predicted Lineup
Forster; Livramento, Bednarek, Salisu, Walker-Peters; Romeu, Ward-Prowse; Elyounoussi, Stuart Armstrong; Adams, Adam Armstrong
