Southampton v Chelsea live stream, BT Sport, Saturday 20 February, 12.30pm GMT
Chelsea will be looking to continue their fine run of form under Thomas Tuchel when they face a struggling Southampton side in Saturday’s early kick-off.
Tuchel has done an excellent job since replacing Frank Lampard in the Stamford Bridge hot seat towards the end of last month - his side are 8/11 with 888 for the win. Lampard’s dismissal was not universally popular among the Chelsea (opens in new tab) fan base, but Tuchel’s start of four victories and a draw has won some supporters over. The team’s upturn means Chelsea head into this round of fixtures in the top four, having displaced Liverpool (opens in new tab) from the final Champions League qualification spot last weekend.
Southampton (opens in new tab), conversely, have struggled of late and are priced at 18/5 for the win. Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side have lost each of their last six matches in the Premier League, including that 9-0 demolition by Manchester United (opens in new tab) earlier this month. Saints remain well clear of relegation trouble, but they will still be desperate to arrest their alarming slide. The draw is 13/5 with 888 right now.

Chelsea will have to make do without Thiago Silva for the trip to the south coast, but the Brazil international is getting closer to making a return from a muscular problem. Kai Havertz is a doubt and Tammy Abraham will miss out with an ankle injury, giving Olivier Giroud the chance to make an impact from the start.
Christian Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech look set to miss out on the starting XI once more, with Timo Werner and Mason Mount likely to continue as the inside-forwards in Tuchel’s 3-4-2-1 formation.
Southampton’s injury crisis is easing, but Hasenhuttl will still be without several players. Theo Walcott is among the absentees, with the winger’s hamstring injury complicated by damage to a tendon. Kyle Walker-Peters picked up a hamstring injury of his own last time out and faces a few weeks on the sidelines, with James Ward-Prowse likely to deputise at right-back as he has done in the past.
Ibrahima Diallo remains out with a muscular problem, while Michael Obafemi is still recovering from surgery and Will Smallbone is a long-term absentee. In better news for Saints, Alex Jankewitz is available again following a three-game ban.
Kick-off is at 12.30pm GMT and the game is being shown on BT Sport 1 in the UK. See below for watching details where you are.

Use a VPN to watch a Southampton v Chelsea live stream from outside your country
If you’re on holiday or just simply out of the country, your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows exactly where you are from your IP address. Your access to the game will be automatically blocked, which is annoying if you’ve paid a subscription fee and don't want to use an illegal, buffering stream that makes you miss another Jose Mourinho tantrum. And that's where we recommend ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) (more on which below).
All you need to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to get beyond such aggravations (assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs). A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning suppliers can’t work out where you are and what you’re doing. The info going to and from is entirely encrypted.
There are plenty of options out there, including:
ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
