Premiere League: Southampton v Chelsea ( predict correct score and win #15,000)


Ryan Bertrand is in contention to face former club Chelsea when Southampton host the Blues on Super Sunday.

The England defender is returning from a hamstring injury suffered on international duty, and could slot straight back into Claude Puel's back-line.

Southampton, who boast the joint-second best defence in the Premier League, have lost just once in their last 10 matches, a narrow 1-0 defeat to Inter Milan at the San Siro.

They progressed to the EFL Cup quarter-finals with victory over Sunderland on Wednesday, while Chelsea crashed out of the competition with a 2-1 loss at West Ham.

Despite the defeat, head coach Antonio Conte has pledged to keep faith with his 3-4-3 formation.

"I think it is the right way for the players because it is a good fit for the team," Conte said.  

"We have found a good balance and also we have a good offensive situation because in every game we scored the goal.  

"It is different when you defend with the four and when you defend with the three defenders but I see a lot of positive things."

Team news  Bertrand could return from a hamstring injury for Southampton, but Jay Rodriguez is a doubt after a clash of heads against Sunderland. Fellow striker Shane Long is still out with a hamstring problem.  

Fraser Forster, Virgil van Dijk, Steven Davis and Charlie Austin will be among the players who return after being rested against the Black Cats.

For Chelsea, John Terry is likely to return to the substitutes' bench.  

Terry made his first start in more than six weeks following an ankle injury as the Blues made seven changes for their EFL Cup defeat at West Ham, but Conte is set to recall many of the players involved in last Sunday's comprehensive win over Manchester United.  

Branislav Ivanovic is available and Kurt Zouma is nearing a return from his long-term knee injury, but playmaker Cesc Fabregas (thigh) remains out.
