Southampton will welcome Chelsea at St. Mary’s Stadium on Tuesday night as both sides look to earn all three points from this Premier League clash. The Saints suffered a 1-0 loss at the hands of Manchester United last weekend. In contrast, the Blues earned an impressive 2-1 victory against Leicester City recently.

Southampton vs Chelsea: Talking Tactics

Ralph Hasenhüttl will probably opt for a 4-2-2-2 formation and is expected to name an unchanged first team for this game. He will instruct his players to keep a solid shape at the back and try to expose Chelsea’s weaknesses on the counter.

Thomas Tuchel will set his team up in a 3-4-2-1 formation and could ask his men to dominate the game and create enough chances to bag all three points on the road.

Chelsea

Conor Gallagher is suspended for this clash after he picked up a red card versus Leicester City last weekend. N’Golo Kante, Kalidou Koulibaly and Marcos Alonso will be sidelined for this game due to injuries.

Chelsea Predicted XI

Mendy, Azpilicueta, Silva, Cucurella, James, Loftus-Cheek, Jorginho, Chilwell, Havertz, Mount, Sterling

Key Men

Southampton

Che Adams will be Southampton’s best hope for a goal in midweek. He will have to lead the line well alongside Adam Armstrong in the final third.

Armel Bella-Kotchap and Mohammed Salisu would have to put in a solid defensive performance collectively if the Saints are to secure a positive result in midweek.

Chelsea

Both Mason Mount and Kai Havertz will carry most of the creative burden for Chelsea in the opponent’s half.

Raheem Sterling managed to net a brace versus the Foxes and will be expected to once again make a difference for the West London giants on the attacking end of the field.
