Chelsea v Southampton Preview, Betting Tips And Enhanced Odds

Betting preview, tips and enhanced odds for Chelsea’s New Year Premier League clash with Southampton.

Form Labs

It has been a baptism of fire for new Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhüttl and after two consecutive losses they head to Stamford Bridge in the New Year just outside the relegation zone on goal difference. For Sarri and his Chelsea, their festive period has seen them win four of their five so far, however with 11-points now separating them from Liverpool at the top of the table, one expects their title aspirations are over. Form Labs bring you their betting preview and tips for the game and don’t forget top make your way over to our FanBoosts section and take advantage of our comprehensive selection of enhanced odds for the New Year Premier League games.

Chelsea’s Home Form Solid

Despite a defeat to Leicester in their last game at the Bridge, Chelsea’s home form has largely been solid as they’d previously won six of nine unbeaten games there, with the other exceptions stalemates hosting Liverpool, Man Utd and Everton.

All four teams to take points off them are well above the level of the Saints, while five of their six victories have been by a least two clear goals as the weaker teams have found them too hot to handle.

Southampton Poor On The Road

Southampton haven’t enjoyed much success on their travels this season, going W2-D1-L7 as their two victories came over Palace and Huddersfield.

Four of their last six defeats on the road have seen them go down by two goals or more, with the exceptions against promoted duo and fellow strugglers Fulham and Cardiff, so Ralph Hasenhuttl has a tough job on his hands to get anything from this game.

The new man in charge is known for his pressing tactics and, though the Saints are much more entertaining for the neutral than they were under Mark Hughes, such an approach could be dangerous for their defensive record against Chelsea if they get it wrong.

‘Sarri-ball’ has seen the hosts net at least twice in seven of 10 games at the Bridge this term, while home or away they’ve netted an average of three per game against bottom-six opponents.

Southampton Have Improved

The Saints have certainly improved under the Austrian, but while they’re scoring with greater regularity, netting eight times across their last four, they still conceded the same amount at the other end.

Given Chelsea’s ability to score freely against the weaker sides under Sarri, the home win and both teams to score looks the way to go in this one with the handicap too short to back.
