Southampton host Chelsea at St. Mary’s on Saturday as they look to push themselves outside of the relegation zone.

The Saints are currently three points behind Crystal Palace in the table, with the exact same goal difference.

Mark Hughes and his side also have a game in hand on their rivals, giving them a glimmer of hope in their race for survival.

Chelsea, meanwhile, have only won one of their last four matches in all competitions – a 2-1 win over Leicester in the FA Cup quarter-final.

The Blues were held to a 1-1 draw by West Ham last week, and Southampton will be hoping for a similar result.

The two sides will also meet for the FA Cup semi-final next week, with this game serving as a dress rehearsal for that clash.

Here is how we expect Mark Hughes to line up his Southampton side against Chelsea this weekend.
