Chelsea were stunned in a West London derby last weekend, conceding three goals in ten minutes against Brentford and ultimately losing 1-4. This was followed by a humbling 1-3 defeat at the hands of a Karim Benzema-inspired Real Madrid midweek in the Champions League.

Southampton, meanwhile, have been in a shocking run of form in recent weeks. They have not won a game in any competition since their 3-1 victory over West Ham in the FA Cup on March 2. That was also the last time they scored more than one goal in a game.

It is, though, the visitors who have the best history going into the Southampton vs Chelsea live stream. They have won all but one of the last 12 Premier League meetings between the two sides — a 0-2 victory for Southampton at Stamford Bridge back in December 2019. Chelsea are also unbeaten in their last eight visits to St Mary’s and have never suffered consecutive league defeats since Thomas Tuchel became manager in 2021.

Chelsea have looked on target for a top-three finish for most of the season. While that is still the most likely outcome, they are now slightly looking at those below them and urgently need to get back to winning ways. Both Arsenal and Tottenham go into the weekend five points behind. It’s a relatively comfortable buffer, but, crucially, Chelsea still have to face the Gunners.

Southampton are safe in mid-table, but will not want their season to simply fizzle out. Thanks to James Ward-Prowse’s immaculate free-kicks, they can pose a challenge to any goalkeeper. However, they will be without forward Armando Broja, whose loan agreement from Chelsea prevents him from playing against his parent club. Here's how they line up:

Southampton: Forster, Livramento, Bednarek, Salisu, Walker-Peters, Ward-Prowse, Romeu, S Armstrong, Elyounoussi, A Armstrong, Adams.

Chelsea: Mendy, Christensen, Silva, Rudiger, Kante, Kovacic, Loftus-Cheek, Alonso, Mount, Werner, Havertz.

Can they fight back after disastrous back-to-back results, or will Southampton refind some of their form from earlier in the season? Found out by watching the Southampton vs Chelsea live stream, and we will show you how below.
