CHE vs SOU Dream11 Prediction
As the English Premier League gets back to action, it will be Chelsea that takes on Southampton at Stamford Bridge up next. Chelsea have been a bit hot and cold lately and haven't been able to strike their authority yet in spite of one of the finest transfer market deals in their club's history. Frank Lampard's men are in at 7th with seven points having won two, drawn one ad lost one. Meanwhile, Southampton are in at 11th but have bounced back in terrific manner after starting off with consecutive losses. The Saints are on the back wins over Burnley and West Brom and will be having the required confidence going ahead. We can expect a tight game nonetheless, and here it the CHE vs SOU Dream 11 Prediction for the fixture ahead.
