Southampton vs Chelsea live stream, Tuesday 30 August, 7.45pm

Chelsea will be looking to build on their victory over Leicester at the weekend when they visit Southampton on Tuesday.

Thomas Tuchel's side bounced back from a 3-0 defeat by Leeds (opens in new tab) by beating Leicester (opens in new tab) last time out. They did not have everything their own way at Stamford Bridge, with Conor Gallagher's red card in the first half for two bookable offences making Chelsea (opens in new tab)'s task even tougher, but a brace from Raheem Sterling saw them past Brendan Rodgers' winless side.

Leicester pulled one goal back and could easily have equalised, but Chelsea dug deep to hold on for an important win. It has not been the smoothest of starts to the new season for the Blues, who are still finding their way under the ownership of Todd Boehly, but a victory at St Mary's would leave them in a decent position after five rounds of fixtures.

Southampton (opens in new tab) could consider themselves a little unfortunate to lose 1-0 to Manchester United (opens in new tab) at the weekend. The Saints probably deserved a point on the balance of play, but a failure to find the back of the net ultimately proved costly.

Ralph Hasenhuttl will have been pleased with his team's all-round showing, though, and a repeat performance would make life difficult for Chelsea here.

The Blues could be the Premier League's busiest club in the final days of the summer transfer window, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Wilfried Zaha, Wesley Fofana and Anthony Gordon among the players on their radar. That suggests Tuchel is still not entirely happy with the squad at his disposal.

For Tuesday's contest, he will have to make do without the suspended Gallagher, but Kalidou Koulibaly is available after his own ban. N'Golo Kante and Marcos Alonso will also miss out.

As for Southampton, Tino Livramento is a long-term absentee but Hasenhuttl has no fresh injury problems to deal with ahead of Chelsea's visit to the south coast.

Kick-off is at 7.45pm BST on Tuesday 30 August and is being shown on BT Sport 2 (opens in new tab). See below for international broadcast options.

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch Premier League football from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
