The Stamford Bridge Stadium will be hosting the Saints for the seventh round of the English Premier League competition. Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea team are the favourites going into the clash, but they must not underestimate Southampton.

- Brighton Hove Albion versus Arsenal
Arsenal are on the redemption path to their season after a terrible start to the 2021/2022 Premier League season. Mikel Arteta's Arsenal team have lost the first three games and won the subsequent three games at the end of matchday six.
Brighton & Hove Albion are still undefeated this season, with only one loss and one draw. They would have gone to the top of the table if they had won against Crystal Palace.
Prediction: The match will probably end in a draw

- Atlético de Madrid versus Barcelona
A clash of titans at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium. The Catalonia club and their fans will be traveling to Madrid to play their eighth round of the 2021/2022 La Liga Santander season.
Barcelona are in a rough patch and they struggle when they play against big teams, and it is evident with them failing to win any of their last five games in the UEFA Champions League.
Prediction: Atlético de Madrid will triumph
