Jose Mourinho saw his side suffer a 1-0 defeat at the hands of FC Basel in the midweek Champions League tie at St Jakob Park. Mohamed Salah's goal three minutes from time saw the Blues suffer a defeat in the European competition and despite the result, the West London club progressed to the knockout stages of the competition.

In the last league fixture, Chelsea registered a comfortable 3-0 win over West Ham United. England international Frank Lampard opened the scoring from the penalty spot before Oscar doubled the lead before the break. Lampard scored his second on his return to Upton Park as the Blues sealed three points.

Meanwhile, Southampton come into this fixture after suffering a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Arsenal in the last league fixture. Olivier Giroud struck twice for the Gunners. The Saints goalkeeper Artur Boruc's error early in the game led to the first goal, before a penalty from the Frenchman in the final stages sealed the game.

Mauricio Pochettino's side sit seventh in the league table with 22 points while Chelsea are third with 24 points from 12 games.

What Managers Say

Jose Mourinho: "For the good and for the bad, I don't believe in this. My record against him [Pochettino] was me as a Real Madrid manager and him as an Espanyol manager. If the record was in his favour, it would be a big surprise. For the record to be in favour of a Real Madrid manager is normal. He's a very good manager and is doing very well."

Mauricio Pochettino: "I'm happy to be facing Jose Mourinho in England, and not in Spain. I think he's one of the best managers in football history. His record speaks for itself. We have a very good relationship, but at the same time while before and after the games we will be friends, during the full 90 minutes we're not going to be friends, we're just going to be rivals, opponents."
