Chelsea 8/13 to beat Southampton in Sundays Premier League matchup
Competition: Premier League
Market: Chelsea win
Odds: 8/13 @ Bet 365
One of just three teams with an unbeaten record in the Premier League, Chelsea will travel to St. Mary’s on Sunday afternoon to face a Southampton side without a win in their last three.
Starting with the hosts, while Southampton may have avoided the drop last season, it could be another difficult year for the Saints. In their opening seven Premier League matches, they have recorded just one win, drawing two and losing four, scoring six and conceding 11 in return. With a points tally of five out of a possible 21, they currently sit 16th in the table. As for their recent form while they may have come past Everton in the cup in midweek, Southampton are now without a win in their last three Premier League appearances.
As for the visitors, while they couldn’t land a top-four finish last season, it has been a very impressive start for Chelsea. In their opening 10 games, Chelsea have won seven and drawn two, scoring 15 and conceding five in return, they now hold both the second best attacking and defensive record in the Premier League. With a points tally of 17, they now sit two points adrift of Liverpool and City at the top of the table. As for their recent form, after knocking Liverpool out of the EFL Cup, Chelsea are yet to be beaten in any competition so far this season.
