Southampton vs Chelsea: Match preview

Southampton have now lost all of their matches since their shock win over Liverpool.

Six consecutive defeats in the league have seen the Saints slip into 13th.

Ralph Hassenhuttl’s side are just ten points above the bottom three and Newcastle in 17th are just four points behind them.

Several teams are now queuing up behind them leaving the manager under real pressure to start turning things around quickly.

Despite reaching the FA Cup quarter-finals by beating Wolves, Nuno’s side managed to get their revenge by beating Southampton in the league on Sunday.

The Midlands club came from behind to inflict yet another defeat on the Saints.
