CHE vs SOU Dream11 Team Prediction Tips Chelsea vs Southampton English League Cup Live Score October 27


CHE vs SOU Dream11: Chelsea will be up against Southampton for the upcoming Round of 16 fixture in the League Cup. Thomas Tuchel’s men are occupying the top spot in the Premier League, and have been the team to beat this season. The Blues are on the back of a resounding 7-0 win over Norwich City and will be the confident side heading in. Meanwhile, Southampton is 16th in the league table with eight points, and it’s been a shaky start to the season for them. The Saints did manage to scrape past a win over Sheffield United on penalties but have a massive task ahead. Although, it may seem Chelsea has the clear cut edge, an upset in knock-out football is something fans are quite familiar with as well.
