Chelsea will be looking to make it six straight wins in all competitions when they continue their Premier League campaign away to Southampton on Saturday afternoon. The Blues have picked up maximum points from their last four league matches to move into fourth position in the table, while Southampton have dropped to 13th following six straight losses in England’s top flight. Chelsea are level on points with fifth-placed West Ham United and just two points clear of sixth-placed Liverpool, but they are also only four points off second-placed Manchester United on the same number of matches, which is an indication of how much of a turnaround has occurred.
Southampton have lost their last five home league games against Chelsea, their longest such losing run against an opponent in their league history. They have lost 24 Premier League games against Chelsea; only against Man Utd (28) have they lost more in the competition. Mauricio Pochettino was in charge the last time Southampton beat the Blues in a home league game, in March 2013. Goals by Jay Rodriguez and Rickie Lambert confirmed the victory either side of a John Terry effort. Chelsea have won more Premier League games (nine) than any other side against Southampton in the Premier League at St Mary’s.
