Competition: Premier League
Market: Southampton and Chelsea to draw
Odds: 12/5 @ Bet 365
Southampton welcome Chelsea to St Mary’s in the Premier League this afternoon, in a game that could be a tight affair given the strength of the Saints on home soil.
Chelsea are narrow favourites to come out on top but their away form has been inconsistent which suggests a stalemate might be on the cards.
Hosts Southampton are in good form under new manager Claude Puel after recovering from a slow start, sitting ninth in the Premier League table with 13 points from nine games. Three wins and two draws from their last five outings sees the Saints in good shape to inflict damage on Chelsea, who themselves have struggled away from home.
Chelsea find themselves fifth in the Premier League with 19 points, boasting three wins on the bounce. Antonio Conte’s men have overcome their own stick patch, but away from home sees them averaging just over a point per game. Having failed to win two of their last three on the road, Southampton have a chance of getting a result.
Bet 365 are giving odds of 12/5 for Southampton and Chelsea to play up a stalemate at St Mary’s this afternoon.
