Chelsea vs Southampton kick-off time, TV and live stream details

Chelsea return to Premier League action on Saturday when they host Southampton.

There are just two points between the two sides, with the Blues on seven points from their opening four games and their South Coast visitors just a point behind.

Frank Lampard’s side won their last match before the international break, cruising past Crystal Palace 4-0.

Hakim Ziyech could at last make his Chelsea debut after being injured in a pre-season friendly, while Edouard Mendy could continue in goal following his signing in late September.

Timo Werner is also searching for his first Premier League goal.

Southampton’s last result before the two-week break was a 2-0 win over West Brom.

What time is Chelsea vs Southampton?

Saturday’s match kicks off at 3pm and is the second of four Premier League games that day, all featuring last season’s top four.

Manchester City host Arsenal at 5.30pm before Manchester United make the trip to Tyneside to play Newcastle at 8pm.

The day’s early kick-off is the Merseyside derby between Everton and Liverpool at Goodison Park.

Chelsea vs Southampton TV channel and live stream

Southampton’s trip to Chelsea is the first to be shown as part of the controversial new pay-per-view plan.

BT Sport Box Office will be showing the match, and fans will need to fork out £14.95 to watch it.

Fans do not need an existing BT Sport subscription to access the broadcaster’s box office, and the money from the game goes directly to the clubs.

Even those who paid for BT Sport channels will need to pay the extra fee for the box office channel.

Chelsea vs Southampton odds

Can Chelsea be trusted to deliver a home win at prohibitive odds of 1/2 with thepools.com against a Southampton side emboldened by back to back Premier League victories?

Probably.

But Saints' odds of 5/1 and 15/4 for the draw are tempting.

It has been a decent start for Chelsea who have lost just one of their opening four Premier League matches – to Liverpool – and for whom victory last time out against Crystal Palace handed them their fourth clean sheet in five Premier League home matches.

But there is the jarring memory of that evening at The Hawthorns when they found themselves 3-0 down in 27 minutes and only just salvaged a point.

But if 1/2 doesn't tickle your fancy, across their previous five home Premier League matches, Chelsea have scored a combined four goals in the five minutes before half-time, and Chelsea to be leading at half-time is Evens.
