Chelsea vs Southampton by Rahul
Chelsea have also been struggling defensively keeping only 1 clean sheet in the league from their last 7 games, which was against 9-man Arsenal, who were unlucky to have results against them. Mourinho has kept on chopping and changing his lineup a lot, which has seen a lot of instability at the back. One can expect Mourinho to lineup with Azpilecueta, Terry, Cahill and Baba Rahman for tomorrow's game to put on a stronger lineup as they go in search of their 2nd clean sheet.
Chelsea won't have it that easy when Southampton come to town, who despite their early season struggles, are slowly getting back in to the rhythm that they were in during the last campaign. They dished out a solid 3-1 beating of Swansea last weekend, while narrowly losing out 2-3 to Man United and grabbing another 2 draws and a victory since their 3-0 thrashing they received from Everton. Their turnaround of fortunes has been a result of the goalscoring exploits of Pelle, Mane and Tadic. Their defensive struggles have been there due to a lot of injuries and chopping and changing by Koeman. The back line have been guilty of not maintaining their line and the teams catching them cold through silly mistakes. They will be keen to go to Stamford Bridge and upset the champions when they are at their most vulnerable now.
Matches between these 2 teams have seen 2 goals scored in 6 straight games since Southampton have been back in the Premier League, while 4 out of the last 6 have seen a minimum of 3 goals landing. Those stats along with the poor defences in both lineups conceding goals is my reason for backing the Asian line with the 2,2.5 goals for this encounter.
