Soccer Match: Southampton vs Chelsea

Southampton host ChelseaSouthampton host Chelsea this Saturday – Premier League

Southampton is the only team in England which has allowed a single goal since the middle of January.  The Saints have made a nice run and they’re on the verge of competing for a spot in the Europa League next year. A win over Chelsea at home would be massive on Saturday. The soccer match between Southampton and Chelsea will be played on Saturday, February 27, 2016, at 10:00 a.m. ET at St. Mary’s Stadium. The game will be broadcast on NBC Sports Live Extra.

Southampton has been playing to at least a draw in six straight matches. The team hasn’t allowed a goal in that run, and it is 3-0-0 at home in its last three against West Ham, West Brom and Watford. Striker Shane Long has been in awesome form for the Saints, as has goalkeeper Fraser Forster. The Saints were dominant back in October when these two last met, a clinical 3-1 victory at Stamford Bridge before we really knew that everything was falling apart for the Blues.

Chelsea is starting to look more promising. The Blues blasted Man City in the FA Cup last weekend 5-1, and though the match earlier that week against PSG was lost, the 2-1 defeat at least kept them alive for the second leg. Prior to that, Chelsea blew out Newcastle 5-1 and escaped a potential failure at home against Manchester United to get a point. Chelsea might be in better form at the moment, but for our money, Southampton is the better of these two clubs.
