Chelsea have an away clash against Southampton at the St Mary’s Stadium on Sunday afternoon. Chelsea who are currently third on the table stand a chance to go top before Liverpool’s game against Manchester City which comes immediately after.
While Chelsea are enjoying a good start to the season, the Saints are 15th on the table and have only won once this season.
BetVictor pundit Michael Owen has backed Chelsea to compound Southampton’s woes and leave the St Mary’s Stadium with a 2-0 victory.
He said: “Chelsea have won their last three at St Mary’s and the hosts are without a win in their last 25 Premier League games against the ‘big six’ clubs.
“Southampton had plenty of possession at Molineux last weekend but lacked a cutting edge and I feel the Blues will take the points with Eden Hazard back to his brilliant best so far this season. His two goals against Liverpool last week were world class.
“Chelsea will go top-of-the table if they beat Saints and will feel this is an excellent opportunity to put the pressure on both Liverpool and Manchester City who meet in the eagerly-anticipated late kick off on Sunday.”
