Chelsea v Southampton: match preview

Chelsea will not underestimate Ralph Hasenhüttl’s side after losing this fixture last season. But Southampton will expect a tougher test this time. Chelsea have spent heavily on their attack and Hakim Ziyech is in line for his first start since joining from Ajax after recovering from a knee injury. However Southampton, who are dangerous on their travels, might fancy their chances given that Kepa Arrizabalaga is likely to deputise for the injured Edouard Mendy in goal. Jacob Steinberg
