LAWRO’S PREDICTION

Thomas Tuchel has made an excellent start as Chelsea head coach. 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.

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 is hard to see them ending that run this weekend.

Chelsea will face Southampton at St Mary’s Stadium on Saturday, with Tammy Abraham back in the running to feature in the Premier League clash.  Brazil defender Thiago Silva will miss Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off clash despite being back in training as he continues his recovery from a thigh issue.
