The Premier League 2021-22 Chelsea vs Southampton game will kick off at 7:30 pm. The match will be played at Stamford Bridge.

However, Tuchel’s unit remain firmly in the title-chasing mix as they sit third in the standings with 13 points after six games.
On the other hand, Southampton are winless in their last five games in the Premier League. However, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side claimed points in games with Manchester City, Manchester United and West Ham United, before they fell to a 1-0 loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers last time out. At present, Southampton are 16th in the standings and the upcoming trip to Stamford Bridge may not bode well for them.
The Premier League 2021-22 match between Chelsea vs Southampton, will kick off at 05:00 PM IST.
