Seven changes to the starting eleven against West Ham United from the team that beat United 4-0, saw Chelsea crash out of the EFL Cup on Wednesday. It was a second string side, but it was beaten by a strong and energetic West Ham side.
Chelsea need to maintain momentum in the league, and it has to get back to winning ways. Southampton away is never easy, but with the main players back in the side, it will be a good opportunity to keep up the winning habit. Let us see who those main players are.
GOALKEEPER – Courtois
Thibaut Courtois produced an absolutely wonderful performance against Manchester United. He did very well early on to keep out Herrera and the Lingard with a double save, which was at a crucial juncture in the match. He also made great saves from Ibrahimovic and Rojo later. The Belgian shot stopper has now kept 3 consecutive clean sheets, and will continue in goal against Southampton.
