The Blues beat Crystal Palace 4-0 last time out and will seek to ensure another three points against in-form Saints in the capital.

Frank Lampard’s men have some tricky Premier League fixtures ahead of them, which they must balance with the start of their Champions League campaign.

And with plenty of their top stars representing their countries over the past fortnight, Saturday’s tie may prove tricky.

Saints have won two on the bounce and haven’t conceded a goal since letting in five against Tottenham last month.

Chelsea v Southampton team news

Chelsea: Hakim Ziyech could make his debut for Chelsea on Saturday after coming back from injury, which may mean Mason Mount drops to the bench.

Christian Pulisic is also back for boss Lampard, but Ben Chilwell is rated as 50/50 and may not be risked.

Southampton: Stuart Armstrong is out after testing positive for COVID-19.

Mohamed Salisu is also not expected to feature, but apart from that manager Ralph Hasenhüttl has a fully-fit squad to choose from.

Our prediction: Chelsea v Southampton

Southampton are in form, having beaten Burnley and West Brom without conceding a goal before the international break. But Chelsea are a different beast and reacted to their 3-3 draw with West Brom last month by stuffing Crystal Palace.

Both Kai Havertz and Timo Werner scored for Germany during the international break and the duo could well find the net here on Saturday.

Chelsea should have too much firepower for Saints here, so don’t be surprised if the hosts are leading at the break.

Our prediction: Chelsea 2-0 Southampton
