Chelsea might be moving in the right direction under Frank Lampard, although we’re not yet sure that we can trust the Blues at odds-on for an away match at St Mary’s.

Team news | League Table | Odds

The London side will come into this match just days after a Champions League engagement away to Lille and that means a limited preparation period against opponents who are bidding to win their first home match of the season.

Chelsea’s season began inauspiciously with a 4-0 hammering at Old Trafford, although the team have steadily gotten their act together and they were totally dominant when beating Brighton 2-0 last Saturday.

Defensively, Lampard’s team look far more robust now that Fikayo Tomori and Andreas Christensen are operating in tandem, while Mason Mount continues to impress with his drive and creativity following last season’s loan spell with Derby.

As for Southampton, they are averaging just a point per game at the moment although it’s not been a particularly easy run of fixtures considering that they’ve already met Tottenham and Liverpool amongst other teams.

Ralph Hasenhuttl recently saw his team batter rivals Portsmouth in the EFL Cup, although scoring goals in the Premier League has been altogether more tricky and he will rue the fact that his team couldn’t make a numerical advantage count at White Hart Lane last week.

New signing Che Adams is yet to get off the mark, although we think that the Saints could be good for at least one goal against a team who has previously conceded four, two and two in their three away games to date.

On the plus side for Chelsea, they have bagged eight goals on their road trips to Norwich and Wolves, with Tammy Abraham sure to eventually take those big chances that keep falling his way and he snapped up five of those eight goals previously mentioned.

Both teams to score looks to be the obvious bet even at fairly short odds. At a push, you might consider Chelsea + BTTS but we’ll play it safer for now.
