These two meet again at Wembley after Chelsea came from two down to win at St Mary's on Saturday.
Chelsea v Southampton – Sunday 15:00, BT Sport 1
Given the other semi-final features Man Utd and Spurs, Chelsea will have been more than happy with their draw, and as they drift towards Europa League football next term Antonio Conte will at least want to end the season on a high by lifting a trophy. The Saints are unlikely to offer too much resistance having lost eight of 11 winless encounters with the top six this term, including a recent 3-2 defeat hosting Chelsea themselves, while they’ve lost all five encounters with the Blues since February 2016.
The result at St Mary’s last weekend was the only fixture Chelsea have conceded in with this seasons’ bottom-three, and of course goals have been hard to come by for the visitors all season. However, since Mark Hughes has arrived the Saints have at least shown more attacking intent, also losing 3-2 at Arsenal. In fact, going back to the start of last season the Welshman has seen his teams score in 14 of their 20 encounters with the Big Six – with both teams finding the net 13 of these.
While the hosts to win and both teams to score holds decent value, a repeat of those 3-2 defeats Southampton recently suffered offers the chance for a mammoth pay out. Indeed, prior to visiting Leicester on Thursday the Saints have conceded exactly three times in each of their last four in the league, while with four different goalscorers in those 3-2 losses have shown themselves to be more capable going forward under new management.
