The players fans expect Sarri to feature against Southampton

Timothy Aiyeku



The unbeaten run for Chelsea will be tested once again when they file out against Southampton at the St Mary Stadium.

It is going to be the last game before the international break and it is wise to think that the Maurizio Sarri team will want to end this phase on a good note.

Every finger points to the London side as the favourites but the fact the host team has won just once in 7 games means they will also be giving a good fight to stir an upset.

However, the Blues fans will expect to see a strong quad being fielded for the challenge and there is no doubt that the former Napoli boss will not be willing to take any risk on that.

There is nothing to talk about in the goal post with Kepa Arrizabalaga fit and ready to go, his ability and the saves, has made him a must for selection – Any face aside Kepa’s will not be taken likely by Chelsea fans.

Belgium star player, Eden Hazard has also been described as being ‘untouchable’ having lifted the team with his fine form this season.

However, an expected lineup which favours a 4-3-3 formation from Sarri include:

Alonso, Rudiger, David Luiz, Azpilicueta
Kovacic, Jorginho, Kante,
Hazard, Giroud, Pedro.
