Alvaro Morata could return to the matchday squad, but David Luiz is still recovering from his injury. The visitors do not have any injury or suspension concerns.

Chelsea Possible Starting Lineup: Thibaut Courtois, Cesar Azpilicueta, Andreas Christensen, Gary Cahill, Victor Moses, N’Golo Kante, Cesc Fabregas, Marcos Alonso, Pedro, Willian, Eden Hazard.

Southampton Possible Starting Lineup: Fraser Forster, Cedric Soares, Virgil van Dijk, Wesley Hoedt, Ryan Bertrand, Oriol Romeu, Mario Lemina, Nathan Redmond, Steven Davis, Dusan Tadic, Charlie Austin.

“We have to be careful because these are the games we have to win if we want to stay near the top and try to close the gap on Manchester City. Obviously we are far away but we want to keep on pushing and if we can’t catch them we want to finish second.”

– Thibaut Courtois, Chelsea.

Contributor’s Pick

According to Chelsea vs Southampton H2H Stats, Chelsea have won three, lost one and drawn one of their previous five matches against Southampton.

Chelsea have seen over 2.5 goals in six of their last seven home matches against Southampton in all competitions, so it is likely to be a scoring game.

Southampton have failed to win any of their previous five away games in the Premier League and Chelsea are the clear favorites tomorrow. Although Manchester City are likely to win the Premier League with ease, the defending champions will aim to keep winning to finalize a ‘top four’ finish.

A 2-1 win for Chelsea is the most likely outcome.
