Individual errors let Chelsea down domestically when they allowed their two-goal lead slip against an impressive travelling Southampton side.
Once again goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga was responsible for a goal after he failed to clear the ball and allow Che Adams to go on to score and with new signing Edouard Mendy on the sidelines after suffering an injury for Senegal on international duty, that’ll worry the hosts.
Europa League champions least season Sevilla also failed to pick up three points at the weekend, as Granada downed them 1-0.
However, they did win two of their opening three unbeaten matches prior to that, with the sole stalemate coming against Barcelona.
Indeed, they trail top of the table Real Madrid by just three points with a game in hand, and so it certainly hasn’t been a poor start to the campaign for them.
Chelsea To Win And Both Teams To Score
One thing that was on display last time out for Frank Lampard’s men was their attacking quality. Timo Werner spectacularly finished two of his chances while with the likes of Kai Havertz, Christian Pulisic and Mason Mount were all pulling the strings to manoeuvre their way up the field and so it’s no surprise they’re averaging just shy of three goals per game across all competitions.
In fact, they have now gone W8-D1-L1 from their 10 home matches dating back to March, including victories over Liverpool, Everton, Man City, Wolves and Palace to name a few, while their sole defeat came in the Premier League against an impressive Reds outfit.
The Spanish side on the other hand, have won just four of their 14 trips since mid-January and it’s a well-known fact they struggle on the road at the better sides even if they did score in 12 of those.
Indeed, against Barcelona and both Madrid clubs, they’ve lost 10 of their 13 winless league trips since the start of the 2016/17 season, although they have seen an upturn in their output in those more recently, with four goals across the last three.
We’d still be concerned about their form on the road though, losing out to Apoel Nicosia in the Europa League group stages last term as well as a 1-1 draw at CFR Cluj in the opening leg of the last 32 stage.
Timo Werner To Score Anytime
Given the scoring nature of the Blues at Stamford Bridge, we certainly fancy their in-form striker to add to his tally.
Werner has three goals from his last two matches for club and country as well as two assists, while if we look at his output in this competition for Leipzig last season, he’s had a hand in a goal in each of his last four. With that in mind, he looks well placed to get his first European goal for the English club.
