Chelsea travel to St Mary’s this weekend to face Southampton before the international break.

Sky Sports pundit Charlie Nicholas isn’t backing Chelsea to beat Southampton and has instead predicted a 1-1 draw.

According to Nicholas, the amount of games Chelsea youngsters have played will take its toll against Southampton.

“This is another good test for Southampton, who were decent against Tottenham,” Nicholas told Sky Sports.

“Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham have been praised, and rightly so.

“Abraham has earned his first England call-up, rightly so too.

“Chelsea are sitting in seventh which is acceptable – it is tight at the moment.

“It will be a season full of ups and downs for the Blues and with lots of games coming up for their youngsters, it may just take its toll on occasions.”
