Chelsea come into this encounter with much confidence after beating Tottenham in the FA cup semi-final over the weekend, they will be hoping to increase their points gap over 2nd placed Spurs to 7 with a win in this encounter. Southampton, on the other hand, would fancy their chances in this game knowing that a win would take them to within 1 points off 8th placed West Brom.

Chelsea have seen their lead at the top of the table cut down to just 4 points, and they would be eager to increase it. The Blues have won 3 of their last 5 league games, but the other 2 have been losses, including a home loss to Crystal Palace.

Chelsea look well placed to bounce back from their 2-0 loss to Manchester United in their last Premier League fixture, and it is worth noting that they have won 4 of their last 5 home matches in all competitions.

Southampton enter this encounter fresh from a 3-0 loss at home to Manchester City in their last league match. The Saints are currently 9th on the league table, 4 points off West Brom who have played 2 games more.

Chelsea won the reverse fixture of this game last October 2-0 with Hazard and Costa scoring the goals.

Southampton may put up a good fight in this encounter, but Chelsea are clear favourites to come out on top.
