Reason For Chelsea VS Southampton Betting Tips

Chelsea have looked like the inevitable and unstoppable Premier League champions for many months now, but recently their title credentials have been called into question as the excellent Tottenham Hotspur’s have kicked on.

The hosts last Premier League match was a meagre 2-0 defeat away to a Manchester United side who have struggled at home all season, and whilst they have still won three of their last five league games, there is a slight hint of them bottling it a bit at the moment.

Southampton aren’t exactly in the best of form though. They sit just inside the top half of the Premier League with a disappointing tally of 40 points from their 31 games so far. Last time out they were well beaten 3-0 at home to Manchester City.

This defeat makes it four wins, one draw, and six defeats in their last 11 games in all competitions, but their form on their travels is actually picking up quite strongly. Their win over West Brom earlier in April made it three wins from their last four away games in the Premier League.

These victories have come against Sunderland, Watford, and West Brom though, and their only really difficult tie in this run resulted in Spurs beating them 2-1. Meanwhile Chelsea have won 13 of their last 15 home games in all competitions.

Defensively Antonio Conte has seen his side start to slide in performance level though. They have now conceded in 11 of their last 13 games in all competitions, but have scored themselves in 12 of these. At home they have only kept a clean sheet in one of their last six Premier League games.

Southampton, meanwhile, have scored in four of their last five on the road, but with just two clean sheets in their last eight, I can’t see them keeping out a Chelsea side who have netted in all of their home games this season. This makes odds of 1/1 for Both Teams to Score look a fantastic bet, so I’m backing that along with a 2-1 win for Chelsea at 8/1 for our correct score predictions.

Head To Head

Chelsea have won four, drawn two, and lost one of their last seven meetings with Southampton.

Chelsea VS Southampton Stats

Chelsea have conceded in 85% of their last 13 games in all competitions, including in 83% of their last six at Stamford Bridge. Southampton have scored in 80% of their last five on the road.
