Chelsea faces Southampton in their Round-7 match of the Premier League when they face off each other at the Stamford Bridge in London on Saturday.
The Blues from London are back in England from Italy after a defeat at the hands of Old Ladies of Turin in Champions League in midweek. The back to back defeat at the hands of Man City in PL and Juventus in CL came as quite shocking for the defending European Champions. However, as they take on the Saints they expect to take all three available points out of this fixture.
The Saints on the other hand had quite a disastrous start to their season. Drawing 4 and losing 2 matches kept them at 16th place in the league. The Saints are still on the hunt for their first win of the league, however it’ll be interesting to see if they can take the win home from London.
Date: October 2, Saturday.
Time: 03:00 PM BST, 04:00 PM CET, 10:00 AM EDT.
Place: Stamford Bridge, London, England.
Referee: Martin Atkinson.
