Southampton vs Chelsea - Blues Preview

Saturday 14th April

Chelsea travel to Southampton this weekend aiming to recover from a disastrous dip in form.

Antonio Conte's side have picked up just 12 points from 11 Premier League games in 2018 and are in real danger of missing out on the top four.

10 points separate the Blues and fourth-placed Tottenham and they may have to settle for a place in the Europa League.

The trip to St. Mary's is a dress rehearsal for the FA Cup semi-final and Chelsea need to come away with all three points to lay down a marker ahead of their date at Wembley.

Where can I watch?

The game gets underway at 12:30pm. Live television coverage is available on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League.

Team news:

Davide Zappacosta is a doubt while David Luiz is still struggling to shake off an ankle problem.
