Chelsea — Southampton match forecast, EFL Cup

On Sunday, Roman Abramovich turned 55. His favorite brainchild had defeated Norwich the day before, but perhaps he will continue congratulating the Russian oligarch in the League Cup as well? There they will face not the most difficult task: the reception of Southampton. Is there any intrigue in the meeting at Stamford Bridge? Full statistics and odds for the match can be found at 1xbet v.83.

Chelsea came out of the fall recession

“Aristocrats” at the end of September could not win in 3 matches in a row. In the League Cup with Aston Villa, they were saved by Kepa Arrisabalaga’s ability to win penalty shootouts. But then there were 0-1 with Manchester City in the Premier League and Juventus in the Champions League. Yes, and with Brentford, after a pause for the national teams, despite the victory, there were a lot of questions for Tuchel – he was saved by Chilwell’s goal and Mendy’s courage in the “frame”. After that, however, there were 2 defeats of opponents. But who were these rivals? Malmö, the underdog of the Champions League group, received 4 goals, Norwich, again clearly not at the level of the Premier League – 7. Is this exactly a sign of recovery. On the other hand, Thomas copes brilliantly with the simultaneous injuries of Lukaku and Werner.

Southampton still can’t get away from the relegation zone

“The Saints” had a great chance to build up their distance from the three worst of the current Premier League. On Saturday they hosted one of the underdogs at their hometown, St. Mary’s, Burnley, and ended in a 2-2 draw. That is, they have actually retained the status quo. The situation for Ralf Hasenhüttl and his charges is not the most rosy. “Claret’s” taught everyone that they start badly, but then they invariably improve. Newcastle received new and very rich owners, and in winter it should receive a powerful strengthening of the roster, and even earlier – a new mentor. And as a result, only Norwich remains below Southampton, who, it seems, has no plans to survive in the Premier League. Is it worth it in such conditions to waste energy in the cup? Or better save them for Saturday’s fight with a competitor, Watford? Moreover, Ward-Prause will definitely not play – the leader of the team is “red”.

Previous matches

Chelsea failed to beat Southampton last season – 1-1 and 3-3. But at the beginning of the month, here, we managed to beat the “saints” 3-1.

Match prediction

Why don’t Tuchel’s charges repeat what they did on October 2? Moreover, it is unlikely that the rival will resist the same way. We bet on Chelsea to win with a “-1 goal” handicap (odds – 1.82).
