Chelsea will look to get back to winning ways on Saturday afternoon as they prepare to face Southampton at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League (Chelsea 2/5, Draw 4/1, Southampton 8/1 – match odds).

The Blues (11/4 to win the Premier League) have lost back-to-back games for only the second time under Thomas Tuchel since the German took charge in January.

Manchester City got the better of them in the Premier League with a 1-0 win last weekend before Juventus ran out the winners by the same scoreline in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Chelsea are now one point behind league-leaders Liverpool, but they will fancy their chances of beating Southampton, who have yet to win in the league this season.

Southampton have avoided defeat in the last three meetings between the pair, but Mason Mount’s return to fitness could help Chelsea get the job done.

There are three other games that will kick-off at 15:00, with Leeds United looking to win their first match of the season as they host Watford at Elland Road (Leeds 3/4, Draw 3/1, Watford 19/5 – match odds).

Pascal Struijk has completed his three-match ban and can return, while Diego Llorente and Raphinha are fit to play. Marcelo Bielsa will still be without Luke Ayling, Patrick Bamford and Robin Koch.

Watford midfielder Peter Etebo will not make the trip to West Yorkshire, as he faces five months on the sidelines with a torn thigh muscle.

Like Leeds, Burnley and Norwich are also without a win, and they face each other at Turf Moor (Burnley 19/20, Draw 13/5, Norwich 16/5 – match odds).

Burnley winger Maxwel Cornet is ruled out due to a hamstring injury, but Matej Vydra and Jay Rodriguez are pushing to start. Norwich coach Daniel Farke is still without Christoph Zimmermann, Przemyslaw Placheta, Todd Cantwell and Sam Byram, but Billy Gilmour is hoping to pass a late fitness test.

17th-placed Newcastle United will be wary of the teams behind them as they prepare to take on Wolves at Molineux, but they have been handed a boost ahead of kick-off, with Joe Willock set to start despite a recent toe injury (Wolves 8/11, Draw 3/1, Newcastle 4/1 – match odds).

Wolves have won two of their past three games and will fancy their chances against a winless Newcastle.

Saturday’s 17:30 KO sees Brighton host Arsenal, with the hosts set to be without midfielder Yves Bissouma (Brighton 21/10, Draw 23/10, Arsenal 6/4 – match odds).

Danny Welbeck, Steven Alzate, Enock Mwepu and Adam Webster remain sidelined and the Seagulls face an Arsenal team aiming to win their third Premier League game in a row.

Mikel Arteta will be unable to call upon the services of Granit Xhaka for the next three months, and summer signing, Albert Sambi Lokonga is hoping to fill the void.
