Chelsea travel to the south coast to take on Southampton in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

The Blues are in fine form under Thomas Tuchel and will now be looking their sixth straight win in all competitions under the German boss.

Ralph Hassenhutl's Saints have slid down the table in recent weeks, and have lost four of their last five matches, so need a win to reignite their winning form.
