Second Half

The second half is underway! Will we see more goals from St Mary’s? Can Arsenal come back from behind against Brighton?

Southampton don’t always lose against a big team, but when they do they get BATTERED

Team News – Southampton vs Chelsea

Team News – Brighton vs Arsenal

Chelsea travel to Southampton with their season in danger of unravelling after damaging back-to-back defeats against Brentford and Real Madrid.

Amid all the uncertainty of the future of the club, Chelsea desperately need a win to steady the ship.

A positive result at St Mary’s would boost confidence ahead of a huge week in which Chelsea face the second leg against Real and then their FA Cup semi-final with Crystal Palace.

While it would be unlikely to see them drop out of the top four, the manner of their recent losses would suggest there is an awful lot to get right until the European champions can rest easy on that front.

Southampton, meanwhile, have not won in five games across all competitions.
