The #Dolphins suffer their first defeat of the season in Cincinnati. A statement win over an in-form team moves the #Bengals up to .500 and back on track after a tricky start.

Chelsea aiming for back-to-back wins

Chelsea entertain Southampton in the Premier League on Saturday, hoping to win back-to-back games for the first time this season.

The Blues beat Crystal Palace 4-0 before the international break with Jorginho scoring two penalties and Ben Chilwell also scoring on his Stamford Bridge debut.

Stats and head-to-head

Frank Lampard’s side have now won eight of their past nine home matches but they were beaten 2-0 by Southampton last season, with Michael Obafemi curling in a long-range strike and Nathan Redmond scoring the second.

Olivier Giroud has a good record against Southampton, scoring four and assisting one in his last four league games against Southampton.

Timo Werner will be looking to score his first league goal for Chelsea on Saturday. Meanwhile, Hakim Ziyech could be fit to make his debut alongside Christian Pulisic, who has also been out injured. Edouard Mendy is likely to miss the game, so either Kepa Arrizabalaga or Willy Caballero will replace him.

Saints going for three in a row

The Saints will be looking to win back-to-back games against Chelsea for the first time since December 1993.

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men lost their first two league games, conceding seven goals but have bounced back with back-to-back league wins against Burnley and West Brom respectively.

Southampton have only conceded 29 shots in four league matches – the lowest of any team this season. They have also won eight of their past 13 away league matches. If they beat Chelsea, they’ll have won three consecutive league games for the first time since May 2016.

Danny Ings, who scored 22 league goals last season, has three of Southampton’s five this season. Moussa Djenepo and Stuart Armstrong are set to miss out due to injury and COVID-19 respectively.
