A desperate Southampton will be hosting the current European Champions Chelsea this Saturday in the ongoing season of the English Premier League.
After losing 3 consecutive games before the international break, Southampton has managed to collect a single point from its latest match, holding a rejuvenated Leeds United to a 1-1 draw. After trailing 1-0 at halftime, Ward-Prowse produced a superb free kick in the 49th minute to equalize the scores, and share the spoils at the end of the game.
While the draw brought in some relief to the fans, an entire March without any Premier League points meant that Southampton is now on the 12th spot on the points table, and once again heading towards a finish in the bottom half. However, facing a Chelsea side that is low on confidence, Ralph Hasenhuttl will be pushing his team harder to get a favorable result from this game.
Despite suffering a humiliating 4-1 defeat against a lowly Brentford in its last Premier League game before the international break, Chelsea started its quarterfinal journey in the Champions League as the favorite of most football betting sites. However, the Blues were stunned by a hat trick by the veteran French striker Karim Benzema and conceded a 2 goal advantage to Real Madrid in the first leg. With the team slated to visit the Santiago Bernabeu in the next week, and then the Wembley Stadium to take on Crystal Palace in the EFL Cup semi-finals, it is important for them to regain some confidence through this match.
The club currently remains at the 3rd spot on the points table.
