Preview: Chelsea vs. Southampton

Sports Mole previews the Premier League clash between Chelsea and Southampton.

Chelsea host Southampton on Sunday looking for a response to their disappointing 1-0 defeat in Basel on Tuesday evening.

The Blues failed to register a shot on target in Switzerland, and Jose Mourinho is likely to make several changes to his starting lineup for the visit of Southampton.

Eden Hazard and Andre Schurrle are likely to be recalled, while Fernando Torres will replace the injured Samuel Eto'o.

Southampton have fallen down to fifth position in the Premier League table after last weekend's 2-0 loss to Arsenal.

However, boss Mauricio Pochettino should be able to call upon Dejan Lovren after the defender missed out last week due to illness.
