Chelsea will play host to Southampton at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon, and the Blues will be aiming to follow the 4-0 win against Crystal Palace with yet another resounding victory.

Former Tottenham and Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov is backing Chelsea to win the game 2-1. However, he warns that Frank Lampard’s side must begin to build some consistency, while also saying that he expects more from new signing Kai Havertz.

He said in his prediction for Betfair: “I still haven’t seen Havertz play a really brilliant game, I want to see him with more confidence for Chelsea.

“They aren’t consistent as a team right now. Werner needs to do more too.

“They should beat Southampton, but they need to start putting results together and being consistent.”

Chelsea finished in fourth place last season, and the expectation is on Lampard to go beyond that this season, after a summer of transfer activities.
