Southampton’s performances have generally improved since the arrival of Mark Hughes earlier this year, but the Welshman still has plenty of work to do when it comes to his team being able to see out matches.
Hughes has watched his side lose five points during the last 15 minutes of Premier League fixtures this season, including at Molineux last weekend as the Saints held their own against in-form Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Team news coming up shortly.
Here’s how Saints lineup against Chelsea:
