Southampton vs Chelsea match preview
Chelsea's uninspiring recent displays mean it's hard to see a repeat of last season's 6-0 win at Southampton.
A wretched day at Elland Road saw Edouard Mendy get caught horribly on the ball for Leeds' first, and the day ended with Kalidou Koulibaly's dismissal for a second bookable offence, meaning he will miss another tough away trip.
Tuchel has yet to see one of his forwards score this season and needs that to turn around quickly with five points dropped already this term.
After a 4-1 opening-game defeat to Tottenham, Southampton have turned things around, coming from 2-0 down against Leeds to draw before the impressive victory at Leicester, which saw Adams bag a brace for the first time since July 2020, with the winning goal a sensational bicycle into Danny Ward's far corner.
