Footballbible on Facebook and Twitter get up to date football-related news from the English Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga and other leagues around the World. News From Chelsea, Everton, Arsenal, Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool.
Further news is awaited from Maurizio Sarri’s press conference on Friday but the Chelsea manager appears to have a fully-fit squad to choose from as the Blues head to the south coast.
Injury doubts Pedro, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Andreas Christensen all returned in the Europa League on Thursday night but will perhaps expect to be back among the substitutes on Sunday.
Pedro, Willian and Eden Hazard had their minutes managed against Vidi, but the Brazilian remains perhaps the favourite to line up alongside Hazard and Olivier Giroud in a three-man attack for the match against Southampton.
The rest of the settled side effectively picks itself, with only Kepa and Mateo Kovacic of the regular starting XI featuring against the Hungarian champions on Thursday.
