Chelsea vs Southampton might not sound one of the glamorous ties in the Premier League each season it is on the schedule, however, it is one that certainly should attract the interest it deserves when played at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues have become one of the biggest sides in English football over the last few decades, as they have been turned into a team that can dominate the competition and win a number of the top honours that each tournament provides. Stamford Bridge has certainly helped with that, as the 41,837 capacity has made the stadium one that is extremely difficult for visiting teams to navigate with any success.
Southampton might not be decorated in the trophy department, however, they have a brand of football that is very easy on the eye and very direct; something that many you love football like to watch when seeing teams in action from the stands.
The Bridge has been a rather happy venue when the Saints come to the capital, as the hosts are able to take advantage of playing in front of their own crowd. Statistically, over the years, the Blues have managed to take points from the vast majority of the matches that have been played in the Premier League between the two sides.
3-1, 4-2 and 1-0 have all been recorded by Chelsea in the past, although Southampton has managed to produce their own 1-3 and 0-2 top-flight wins when visiting the capital, therefore providing the possibility of rocking the applecart.
Chelsea has had a number of household star names play for them over the years and some have played brilliantly in the past when going up against Southampton, with the likes of Eden Hazard, Frank Lampard and John Terry having played prominent roles, whereas the Saints have also been able to call upon stars like Sadio Mane, Virgil van Dijk and Danny Ings in recent fixtures.
Chelsea versus Southampton is a fixture that has plenty of things going for it, despite hardly sounding the most glamorous tie in the Premier League fixture list. Goals seem to be rather prevalent, which should make it all the more appealing and a must-see for fans wanting to watch a game at Stamford Bridge.
