Chelsea v Southampton preview and possible lineups

We take a look ahead to Saturday afternoon's Premier League clash between Chelsea and Southampton at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea:

The Blues can move joint-second in the league standings with a win over Southampton tomorrow.

They should be boosted by the return of Alvaro Morata, who missed the midweek win at Huddersfield through fatigue and with a back problem.

Meanwhile, David Luiz remains sidelined with a knee problem.

Southampton:

The visitors may have been unlucky to draw at home to Arsenal last weekend, but they come into this game on the back of a 4-1 thrashing from Leicester at St Mary's.

Mauricio Pellegrino does, however, have a fully fit squad to choose from for his side's trip to the champions.

Recent form:

Possible lineups:

Chelsea: Courtois; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Cahill; Zappacosta, Fabregas, Kante, Bakayoko, Alonso; Hazard; Morata.

Southampton: Forster; Stephens, Yoshida, Van Dijk, Bertrand; Romeu, Hojbjerg; Ward-Prowse, Tadic, Redmond; Austin.
