Sky Sports football expert Charlie Nicholas thinks Chelsea will draw the match against Southampton at St. Mary’s Stadium, 1-1. Pundit has explained his prediction.
“This is another good test for Southampton, who were decent against Tottenham. Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham have been praised, and rightly so. Abraham has earned his first England call-up, rightly so too.” Nicholas wrote.
“Chelsea are sitting in seventh which is acceptable – it is tight at the moment. It will be a season full of ups and downs for the Blues and with lots of games coming up for their youngsters, it may just take its toll on occasions.” he added.
