When Chelsea travels to St Mary’s to face Southampton in Saturday’s Premier League match, they will be looking to avoid a third consecutive defeat in all competitions. On Tuesday, Thomas Tuchel’s side lost 3-1 to Real Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final, while the Saints just drew 1-1 with Leeds United.

Southampton vs Chelsea Predictions
Last week, the hosts earned a point in all competitions for the first time in almost a month when they came from behind to draw 1-1 at Leeds United. Prior to that match, they had lost three games in a row.
Chelsea, on the other hand, began their season with a 4-1 home loss to London rivals Brentford last week after the international break. Their bad form continued in the UEFA Champions League, as they were defeated 3-1 at home by Real Madrid in the first leg of their quarter-final match on Wednesday.
Chelsea’s Champions League second-leg match, which takes place four days after this match, may have an impact on their performance here.
Southampton hasn’t beaten the London giants at home since 2013, with their last two victories coming at Stamford Bridge. They’ve lost their last two home games by a combined score of 2-1, and they’ll be hoping to get back on track here.
Chelsea has gone undefeated on the road in their last four games, scoring nine goals and conceding just twice. Their chances of overcoming the hosts are strong, and they will be motivated following a 3-1 hammering by Real Madrid at home in the Champions League.
Chelsea should win this match, but we anticipate the Saints to battle hard and get at least one goal.

Southampton has been struggling to retain clean sheets recently, but they have also managed to reach the back of the net. Southampton has had their goal broken in six of their previous six matches, while also scoring in five of them.
