Chelsea vs Southampton
English Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 2 January 2019
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stamford Bridge (London).
Ralph Hasenhuttl managed to shift Southampton’s fortunes around and they escaped the red zone after back-to-back wins over Arsenal and Huddersfield Town.
The Saints however, failed to maintain the winning streak six days ago when they fell 1-2 at home to West Ham United.
Their well congested schedule is about to continue on Wednesday when the Saints travel to Chelsea just three days after facing reigning champions Manchester City at St. Mary’s.
Chelsea played hot and cold in recent weeks. They fell 0-1 to Leicester City ten days ago in the previous league match at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues did manage to rebound on Boxing Day when they dispatched Watford 1-2 away at Vicarage Road thanks to a brace from their star man Eden Hazard.
