Chelsea will be in action against Southampton for their next clash in the Premier League.

The Blues are currently sitting in 4th place in the league table and will be hoping to celebrate another win over the rivals under Thomas Tuchel.

Ahead of Saturday’s match, BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson has given his prediction. He has backed Chelsea to beat the Saints with a score of 0 – 2.

“Thomas Tuchel has made an excellent start as Chelsea manager. He has put together a nice little run of five straight wins in all competitions, and he has done it by, first and foremost, making them difficult to play against,” he said.

“With six successive league defeats, Southampton are at the opposite end of the form table. They have not turned into a bad side, but they will be short of confidence and it hard to see them ending that run this weekend.”
