Chelsea team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Southampton

Sports Mole rounds up all of Chelsea's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash with Southampton.

Chelsea will seek an immediate response to their Champions League defeat to Juventus when they welcome Southampton to Stamford Bridge for Saturday's Premier League battle.

Thomas Tuchel's side went down 1-0 to the Old Lady in Turin in midweek, with Federico Chiesa netting the only goal of the encounter 11 seconds into the second half.

The Blues suffered defeat by the same scoreline to champions Manchester City in their most recent Premier League clash and will be desperate to avoid a third successive defeat this weekend.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Chelsea's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the contest.
