Chelsea vs Southampton predicted line-ups: Team news for Amazon Prime Premier League fixture today

​Frank Lampard ended a rotten run of form for Chelsea to win at Tottenham and secure some breathing room in their bid to secure a top four finish.

Willian‘s double downed former manager Jose Mourinho’s Spurs in the biggest win in Lampard’s short tenure to date, opening up a four-point gap to fifth.

But it has been at home against more conservative sides where the Blues have struggled and Saints, off the back of a 3-1 win at Villa, will be confident of replicating their performance at Stamford Bridge.

Saints are three clear of the drop zone and will hope to distance themselves further by picking up a result here.
