Chelsea vs Southampton 16 December 2017: EPL Preview and Predictions

Soccer | Chelsea (3) Southampton (11)

Chelsea will be at home in West London this weekend as they take on a Southampton side that have been playing some really good football. This is a game  between two sides that will both want to win this game and that should make for a very interesting contest.

Chelsea have been a little inconsistent this season and that is the main reason why they are almost out of the picture in relation of the Premier League title race. This is not something the board or the owner will like and as a result the team needs to start getting some big wins under their belt. This is a game which Chelsea must win since they will know that they are the better side, especially at home.

On the other side of the coin, Southampton will know that this will be a hard game for them but considering how well they played against Arsenal, they will hope to get a win in this game. The Saints have played well but they have not got their just reward yet and they will hope that changes at Stamford Bridge. With all that taken into consideration, I don’t think Southampton will get anything from this game and that it will end in defeat for the Saints.

As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a poor price betting on Chelsea to win and as a result we should avoid that bet. The best bet is the over 2.5 goals and that should get home quite often since both teams have been scoring goals for fun.
