THE PREDICTION

Despite Hasenhuttl insisting on his team needing to shore up at the back, Southampton's matches have been quite open since his arrival as manager. They are scoring goals and are capable of doing so against Chelsea, but the hosts have to be favoured to maintain their good form and take the points.
