Chelsea vs Southampton: Player To Watch Out For
Chelsea Football Club is, without a doubt, a European football giant. They are the current champions of Europe. Not only that, but they are also at the top of the Premier League table after nine matches. It is quite understandable they never fail to satisfy their fans. Moreover, the form they are in will require something special to defeat them. In the third round of the EPL Cup, Chelsea defeated Aston Villa in the penalties to qualify for the round of 16. In the overall competition, Chelsea’s last match was against Norwich in the Premier League, where they won by 7-0. With Mason Mount, Kai Havertz, Reece James, Romelu Lukaku, etc., Chelsea is an automatic favorite in any matchup
Coming to the visitor’s side, Southampton is somewhat a mediocre team of the English Premier League. Most of the time, they finish in the middle of the group. Southampton is good and is capable of defeating a football giant. In the past, they have produced several good players, who later in their career achieved a world-class level. Southampton is in the 16th position in the points table and is living dangerously. In their last match, they drew against Burnley 2-2 in their home. But in their last EPL Cup match, they defeated Newport County 8-0. It sounds astounding. But with players like James Ward-Prowse, Adam Armstrong, Theo Walcott, Jan Bednarek, etc., they are capable of producing magic against Chelsea.
