Michael Owen predicts Chelsea vs Southampton Premier League clash

Chelsea host Southampton off the back of successive defeats – to Manchester City in the Premier League and Juventus in Europe.

Southampton are yet to win a Premier League game this season and former Premier League striker Michael Owen doesn’t see that changing against Chelsea.

“Chelsea were disappointing against Man City,” Owen told Betvictor.

“Thomas Tuchel prides himself on having his team organised and hard to beat but I felt they were a little too defensive against Man City and didn’t really lay a glove on them.

“Southampton would have been eyeing the win against Wolves last week, so to lose it must be a body blow. They are still winless in the league, and just don’t create enough chances. They’ve only scored four in the league and desperately need to address that.

“The Saints have had some good results against the big teams this season, with draws against City and United, but I don’t think they’ll get anything here. I reckon Chelsea will be too strong and will win this comfortably.”

Owen’s prediction: Chelsea 3-0 Southampton
