Blues to edge closer to title glory
Chelsea can edge another step closer to the Premier League title with a victory against Southampton at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday.
Antonio Conte's men put their league campaign on the backburner on Saturday as they defeated title rivals Tottenham 4-2 in the semi-finals of the FA Cup at Wembley.

With a place in next month's final against Arsenal in the bag, Chelsea can now fully focus on claiming their second Premier League crown in three years and they have a good opportunity to move seven points clear of second-placed Spurs by defeating the Saints this week.

The Blues appeared to take their eye off the ball in their previous league game when they crashed to a 2-0 defeat against former boss Jose Mourinho's Manchester United side at Old Trafford on April 16.

It was their second league defeat in four games and has allowed Spurs to close the gap to four points, when Conte appeared to have one hand on the trophy at one point such was their commanding lead at the top.

There have been suggestions that the pressure is starting to play its part as the season is close to reaching its climax, but a game against a Saints side with just a desire to finish the season in the top 10 seems to have come at the right time for them.

Conte, who is likely to recall Diego Costa and Eden Hazard after leaving them out for the FA Cup win over Tottenham, said: "We have trained very well this season and we have a lot of energy to face this type of situation.

"It is important for us to win and look at ourselves, but we all know that it won't be easy because Southampton is a very good team with a good coach and good players."

Southampton come into the game following a 3-0 home defeat against Manchester City last time out, but they have won three of their last four Premier League away games, scoring 10 goals in the process, and are n/a to inflict a defeat on Chelsea.

They have struggled against the bigger teams this season with no wins against any of the top-six sides which will no doubt give Chelsea confidence that they can pick up three points.

In fixtures between the two sides, Chelsea have lost just two of the last 16 meetings, but they have only won three of their previous eight head-to-heads with the Saints at Stamford Bridge and were well beaten 3-1 in last season's fixture.

Despite the Saints' handy record against Chelsea on their own turf, it is difficult to see anything other than a home win given that the level of motivation should be much greater in the Blues' camp.
