Having met just a week ago at the St Mary’s ground, Chelsea and Southampton will meet again on Sunday this time at the Wembley Stadium for their FA Cup semifinal clash.

Chelsea came from two goals down to beat the Saints last weekend, and football pundit Michael Owen is expecting another entertaining clash on Sunday.

The BetVictor brand ambassador said: “Southampton have won four of their five FA Cup ties against Chelsea but they surrendered a two-goal lead at St Mary’s in the league on Sunday and I expect the West London outfit to confirm the form at Wembley.

“The Blues – who met Burnley at Turf Moor in the Premier League on Thursday – have won their last five games against the Saints and Antonio Conte has a big call to make as to who leads the Blues line following Olivier Giroud’s brace after coming on as a second half substitute last weekend.

“I expect to see an entertaining clash with Chelsea making it through the final for the 12th time from their last 15 semi-finals.”

Owen’s prediction: Chelsea 2-1 Southampton
