Chelsea vs Southampton

Chelsea head to Southampton tomorrow on the back of 4 straight wins in the Premier League and looking strong candidates for a top-four finish. Thomas Tuchel will be looking to extend his unbeaten run to 7 games since taking charge.

Southampton on the other hand have lost six in a row, having not won since defeating Liverpool on the 4th of January. A run that also includes the horror show at Old Trafford where they lost 9-0.

Speaking in his pre-match conference manager Thomas Tuchel provided updates on Tammy Abraham, Kai Havertz, Thiago Silva and Christian Pulisic.

Abraham had limped off the field during Monday’s win 2-0 win over Newcastle but Tuchel confirmed he is good to go. Tuchel also confirmed that Kai Havertz is back in the squad.

Thiago Silva remains out after suffering a thigh injury against Spurs and is likely to be joined by Pulisic.

Pulisic out again

Christian Pulisic has suffered another injury blow and is likely to miss out on the trip to St Mary’s.

The American international finished last season in sensational form, but has struggled to stay fit this season playing 90 minutes only five times.

Tuchel said that the player left training yesterday as a precaution.

Chelsea will be hoping he isn’t sidelined for too long.
