Southampton Imbangi Arsenal, Chelsea Asked to Be Careful
Chelsea are determined to maintain momentum against Southampton this weekend. In order not to slip, Chelsea was warned to be careful.
Chelsea returned to winning ways in the Premier League after losing to West Ham United last week. The Blues can be a positive result by beating Huddersfield Town 3-1 in the midweek match.
At the weekend, Chelsea will host Southampton at Stamford Bridge on Saturday (16/12/2017) night local time. Three points targeted Chelsea in order to maintain its position in the top three.
Although Southampton have just lost a landslide from Leicester City, Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois remains alert. The 1-1 draw that Southampton got against Arsenal last week was the concern of the Belgian goalkeeper.
“It’s a tough game, Southampton’s draw against Arsenal and it’s always tough against them at home and away,” Courtois said as quoted by the club’s official website.
“We have to be careful because this is a game we have to win if we want to stay close to the top spot and try to cut the distance with Manchester City.”
“Obviously we are far behind but we want to keep trying and if we can not catch them, we want to finish second,” he added.
Chelsea are currently ranked third in the standings with 35 points from 17 games. They are 14 points behind Manchester City.
