Late Blues business

Good evening from St Mary’s
Welcome to SunSport’s live coverage of this evening’s Premier League clash between Southampton and Chelsea.
Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side sit in 13th place, picking up four points from four matches. A Bruno Fernandes goal saw them fall short against Manchester United over the weekend. Although, the players received a warm reception after showing good character on the pitch.
Meanwhile, the visitors are in sixth. After a shocking 3-0 defeat to Leeds, Thomas Tuchel’s men turned things around against Leicester. Sterling inspired the Blues to an impressive 2-1 victory at the Bridge, scoring twice after Connor Gallagher was sent off in the first half.
The action is scheduled for 19:45 on the South Coast and we will bring you team news shortly as we build up to kick-off.
