Point To Prove
Chelsea landed one leg of a treble attempt when beating Tottenham in the League Cup final, but were dumped out of the Champions League in midweek and will now be doubly focused on making sure they win the Premier League title.
Jose Mourinho's side were twice pegged back after Zlatan Ibrahimovic had been sent off for PSG and the fact that former player David Luiz equalised to take the game to extra-time will have felt like salt in the wound.
It's incredibly rare for Chelsea to put in two bad performances in a row and each time they have had a setback this season, the following opponent has been on the receiving end of a backlash. The Blues thumped Sporting after losing to Newcastle, eased past Watford following defeat to Spurs and knocked Liverpool out of the Capital One Cup after that unbeleivable upset against Bradford.
Chelsea are 5 points clear at the top of the table with a game in hand on second placed Man City and will be looking prove all is well at the Bridge, by beating Southampton.
Stats Favour The Hosts
Chelsea are undefeated in their last 14 home matches in the Premier League and have seen over 2.5 goals in their last 4 home matches against Southampton in all competitions, while the goals have dried up for the visitors who have found the net just twice in their last six outings.
It was one point each after a 1-1 draw when the sides last met, but at home Chelsea are unbeaten in 5 games against Saints and have lost just once in 12 games against them at Stamford Bridge.
The trends point to a home win and thanks to Coral's amazing offer, new customers can back Chelsea at enhanced odds 6/1 with the protection of a £20 free bet consolation, should Southampton get a result.
