This Saturday April 14th two teams of the Premier League, Chelsea and Southampton, will meet at St. Mary’s stadium. Last time they faced each other in the competition during this season, was on December 2017, which resulted in a 1-0 victory for Chelsea. The favorite team to win is Chelsea, but we would like to see both teams form:
First, let’s talk about the local team Southampton. The squad is 18th in the classification table, very close to the relegation zone with 28 points. In a total of 32 games played, they have won 5, drew 13 and lost 14. With a score balance of 31 goals in favour and 50 against. As a home team in the last 5 matches, their performance has been negative, 3 draw and 2 defeats, with no victory.
Second, we have Chelsea which is not in its best form either but they have managed to be in the 5th position in Premier League. So far, they have got 57 points in a total of 32 matches. They have 17 wins, 6 draws and 9 defeats. They have a balance of 54 goals in favour and 31 against. As an away team, they don’t have very good results: in the last 5 matches, they have got 3 losses, one draw and only one victory.p>
I consider, it is a good opportunity for Chelsea to sum some points. Also, Southampton, will fight for being as far as possible form the relegation zone and they are playing at home. I have read some trusted tipsters. and most of the picks give Chelsea as the winner.
