Southampton have failed to win any of their last nine games in London, losing six of them.

Southampton have won two of their 11 games in league and cup this season, plus a Carabao Cup match on penalties. Chelsea’s win earlier this month is one of three defeats.

Trevoh Chalobah is one of only three players to have scored against Southampton in the first half of a game this season. The others were Enda Stevens for Sheffield United in the Carabao Cup, and Maxwel Cornet last weekend for Burnley.
