Chelsea take on bottom of the table Southampton, and surely this is a game we need to be winning, regardless of circumstance and context — and perhaps especially because of circumstance and context, i.e. the terrible run of results we’ve been on for the past many weeks and months.

Graham Potter has opted to rotate his side given the exertions of Wednesday night, and there’s a first start for David Datro Fofana. We should expect any reasonable lineup combination to be able to earn three points today.

Here we go!
