Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante continues to self-isolate following a positive Covid-19 test,

while Christian Pulisic is expected to again miss out.

Mason Mount is fit but Reece James has been ruled out because of an ankle problem.

Southampton will assess Stuart Armstrong, who has resumed training following a calf injury,
while Theo Walcott is fit after a similar issue.

Loanee Armando Broja is ineligible to face his parent club.

Chelsea have lost their past two games, against Manchester City and Juventus, but this is not the start

of any serious slump.

Blues boss Thomas Tuchel will demand a performance this time, and I would be shocked if their losing

run continues on Saturday.

Southampton have looked good in some of their games, but that hasn’t been enough for them to win one yet.

Saints will probably adopt a similar approach to the one that got them a draw at Etihad Stadium a couple of weeks ago,

and will hope for a similar performance too.

But a point is probably the best they can hope for again here  and I don’t see them getting one.

Chelsea’s 2-0 defeat by Southampton in December 2019 is their only loss in the past 11 league meetings

with seven wins and three loses.

Saints have earned 19 Premier League points away to Chelsea  the only sides they have better away records against

are Aston Villa and Crystal Palace, claiming 27 and 21 points respectively.

The Blues are in danger of losing back-to-back Premier League matches for the first time under Thomas Tuchel.

They have not lost consecutive top-flight games at Stamford Bridge since December 2019, with the second fixture

in that sequence a 2-0 defeat by Southampton on Boxing Day.

This time around Chelsea will build the team to be more stronger and find the winning way once again.
