There were goals galore the last time Chelsea and Southampton met at St. Mary’s Stadium in early October, Frank Lampard’s men running riot with a 4-1 victory, but will history repeat itself when the pair do battle once again at 3pm on Boxing Day afternoon?
Little has changed since the rout on the south coast as the Blues are still firmly in the running for the top four in fourth and the Saints remain securely in the relegation battle, 17th and three points above the drop zone.
It’s the frantic festive season which means we could see both teams rotate with another match in just a couple of days’ time, however, we do know that Mateo Kovacic will be missing through suspension, captain Cesar Azpilicueta faces a late fitness test and Marco van Ginkel and Ruben Loftus-Cheek remain out injured for the hosts at Stamford Bridge.
Meanwhile, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men make the trip to the capital without Yan Valery, although could be boosted by the returns of Moussa Djenepo and Kevin Danso.
How to watch the match
Just as in matchday 15 of the 2019/2020 Premier League season earlier in the month, all 10 of the English top-flight fixtures on 26 and 27 December are being shown live on Amazon Prime Video in the UK.
Nothing will be different from the broadcasting of a couple of weeks ago with the same exciting new features available once more, including the popular Goals Centre channel.
Also, the ability to watch the action in crisp 4K Ultra HD, view up to three matches at the same time with enough sufficient devices and turn of commentator noise in favour of ground atmosphere is still there.
If you don’t already have Prime Video and are in possession of an internet device, Smart TV, Fire TV, games console, BT TV, Apple TV, Virgin V6 TV Box, Chromecast or TalkTalkTV, what you need to do to see the Blues vs the Saints is simple.
Only a 30-day free trial with Prime, which will also give you free UK next day delivery on amazon.co.uk, is required and should you not cancel it before it expires, it will only set you back £79 annually or £7.99 monthly.
