The Premier League returns this weekend with Chelsea hosting Southampton at Stamford Bridge.
Frank Lampard’s side have made a hit-and-miss start to 2020/21, despite some heavy spending over the summer designed to take the Blues much closer to the top.
Two wins from their four games so far have shown some flaws at the back remain, but the attacking play in their last league fixture gives reason for optimism.
As for Saints, they lost their two openers before picking up back-to-back wins; they’ll hope for more consistency now after the international break, though this game will naturally be tough.
Pending any late coronavirus tests ruling players out after the international break ends, Chelsea are moving closer to having a full squad available. Billy Gilmour could return within a month, Timo Werner is close to being fit and Ben Chilwell should recover after illness.
Edouard Mendy is out, though, but the goalkeeper’s absence is offset by the returns of Christian Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech.
Southampton should have Mohamed Salisu available, but Nathan Redmond could miss out. Theo Walcott could be involved, too.
Southampton will be aiming for a top-half finish this term. They started last season poorly and were inside the relegation zone at the midway point, but two wins from four is a decent return in the opening weeks of this campaign.
Chelsea were heavily active in the summer transfer market, with Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva, Kai Havertz, Timo Werner and Edouard Mendy having now all made their debuts for the club.
Chelsea possible starting lineup:
Kepa; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Zouma, Chilwell; Jorginho, Kovacic; Mount, Havertz, Pulisic; Werner
Southampton possible starting lineup:
McCarthy; Walker-Peters, Bednarek, Vestergaard, Bertrand; Walcott, Ward-Prowse, Romeu, Redmond; Ings, Adams
