Paul Merson told Sportskeeda: “Southampton were beaten 1-0 by Wolves in their previous Premier League encounter, but they got a point against Manchester City after a 0-0 draw earlier this month.
“The way they play, they are quite unpredictable and will cause Chelsea a lot of problems, but I fancy Chelsea to win this one.
“They are playing at home and will look to return to winning ways after two disappointing results in all competitions, I think they’ll win this 2-0.
“In the UEFA Champions League against Juventus, they played some good football but were dealt with a sucker punch with Federico Chiesa’s goal.
“Mason Mount is a massive player, they really miss him. Hopefully he’s fit and comes straight back into the team in the weeks ahead.”
Prediction: Chelsea 2-0 Southampton
