After Manchester City’s inept performance away at Burnley yesterday, Chelsea have the perfect opportunity to get over their midweek Champions League calamity and put clear daylight between themselves and City in the race for the Premier League title, when they take on Southampton at Stamford Bridge today (live on Sky Sports, Kick-Off 1.30pm).
Under normal circumstances a Chelsea victory would seem routine, but given the way they performed against PSG in midweek, a routine victory is a touch less certain.
For me today’s events will go one of two ways. Either Wednesday’s Champions League performance was a one off, and Chelsea will bounce back with a comprehensive victory today. Or Wednesday’s performance is where Chelsea currently are, and they may struggle again today. Personally, I think it is more likely to be the former, and Chelsea will win today.
