Southampton vs Chelsea: On Saturday, a Chelsea team in poor form travels to Southampton in the Premier League.
Thomas Tuchel’s club has been pounded by both Brentford and Real Madrid in recent days, and the German fears the wheels coming off the rest of the season due to the instability behind the scenes.
Tuchel has recognized that Chelsea’s Champions League game with Real Madrid is almost gone, and that the club’s Premier League play must be improved.
While they are unlikely to tumble out of the top four, the style of their recent defeats suggests they still have a lot of work to do before the European champions can rest easy.
Southampton, on the other hand, has gone five games without a win in all competitions.
