Welcome to our Chelsea vs Southampton preview, prediction and head to head analysis. By their standards, Chelsea have had a terrible start to the season. Just two wins against Arsenal and West Brom, with losses to Manchester City, Everton and Crystal Palace showing them up badly. The mid-week loss to Porto will also hurt, and you have got to wonder how long before their manager starts feeling the heat from the Russian owners. They need a win here.
Southampton are having a fairly typical season. Wins against Norwich City and Swansea interspersed with 3 draws and losses to Manchester United and Everton. They won last weekend at home to Swansea and will want to take advantage of any Chelsea weakness.
