What is it? 

It’s Chelsea vs Southampton at Stamford Bridge, in the 2020/21 Premier League season. 

When is it?

The game takes place on Saturday October 17. 

What time is kick-off?

It’s a classic 3pm Saturday afternoon kick-off, this one. 

What TV channel is on?

This will be one of the games available on pay-per-view TV, and is available to watch on Sky Sports Box Office at the price of £14.95. 

What is the team news?

Edouard Mendy, Chelsea’s newly-signed goalkeeper, made his Premier League debut against Crystal Palace but a thigh injury picked up on international duty with Senegal will likely keep him out of this game if not a while longer. Defender Ben Chilwell left England’s squad earlier in the week with a foot injury and is also expected to miss the game.

What are the latest odds?

  • Chelsea 1/2
  • Southampton 11/2
  • Draw 7/2

What is our prediction? 

Just a single point separates the teams in the league from four games but it would still be a big upset if Southampton repeated their 2-0 victory at Stamford Bridge from last season. That said, it has been a funny old season so far and Southampton won their two most recent games before the international break. Chelsea should be just too strong, though. 

Verdict: Chelsea 2 Southampton 1
