CHE vs SOU: Match Prediction, Preview & Kickoff Time

Chelsea is on fire, and they don't appear to be missing any of their injured stars. They will host Southampton in the League Cup after their 7-0 win against Norwich City in the Premier League.

The Blues have won four games in a row, and their confidence should be high following their massive win on Saturday, which gave them their third consecutive clean sheet. They're top of the Premier League rankings, and they'll be favourites at home after beating Southampton 3-1 a few weeks ago. In three of their last four games, they've scored three goals or more.

Due to the injuries to Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner, Thomas Tuchel is expected to rest more of his star players for this game in order to renew the team.

Southampton isn't having a particularly good season; they've only won one of their last five games and have lost two. In their last five games, they've only kept one clean sheet and have conceded two or more goals in three of them.

Southampton captain James Ward-Prowse was sent off in the previous match between these two sides and is currently on the sidelines. He'll be sorely missed, as he's been their key goalscorer this season. In the five games they've played so far this season, the loss to Chelsea has been their sole defeat away from home. They've scored more than two goals in four of their previous five road games, and they've also conceded two or more goals in three of their last five away games.

SUMMARY:

Going into this game, Chelsea will be too tough for Southampton. They've been scoring a lot of goals and are up against a team that hasn't been very strong in that department.

Chelsea has previously defeated Southampton this season; it wasn't easy, but they prevailed, and they will be much better prepared for this match. With the number of goals Chelsea have scored and the number of goals Southampton has conceded, I expect a high-scoring game, with Chelsea as the favourites to win.

KICKOFF TIME: Chelsea will face Southampton in the EFL Cup today at 7:45PM Nigerian time.
