Woe to Chelsea. The Blues have been one of Europe’s most successful football clubs for several decades, so it’s no surprise that they’re not used to not being successful. But it looked like nothing was right for them when they faced Juventus on Wednesday in the UEFA Champions League. Despite being in control for most of the game, Federico Chiesa’s goal for Il Bianconeri was the only one recorded that day.

A streak of missed chances from Romelu Lukaku belied the attacker’s usual accuracy, especially with heads of the type he connected to late in the second. An advantage on the pitch could help the Belgian get back into shape.
On the other side of the standings, Southampton are getting dangerously close to the relegation zone. Southampton’s streak of four draws was only interrupted by a recent 1-0 loss to Wolverhampton, and they will need to correct the situation before their current trajectory becomes irreversible.
Ralph Hasenhuttl will have to build his squad without Armando Broja for this match, but Theo Walcott, James Ward and Tino Livramento all remain at his disposal.
