Our football match prediction:
League leaders Chelsea are only four points clear of Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League standings ahead of Matchday 34. The Blues failed to impress in a 2-0 loss to Manchester United at the weekend and, no doubt, the Blues will leave their hearts on the field in Sunday’s football game against Southampton. Antonio Conte's men are enjoying a very successful season, but they will have to be at their sharpest in the season finale if they are to regain the Premier League trophy. Chelsea have been impressive at their Stamford Bridge this season and we predict that they will defeat the Saints on Sunday. Claude Puel’s troops suffered a heavy 3-0 loss to Man City at the weekend and considering that they have little to play for against Chelsea, the visitors are likely to return home empty-handed. Diego Costa is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts against Southampton.
Highlighted Player (Hazard):
After impressing during his six-year spell with Lille (2007-2012), Eden Hazard signed for Chelsea in June, 2012. The Belgian midfielder helped the Blues win the Premier League trophy in the 2014/2015 campaign and it has to be noted that he was named the Premier League Player of the Year back then. Eden Hazard made it to the 2014 World Cup quarter-finals with Belgium, but Argentina proved to be a big catch for the Red Devils in the last eight of the showpiece tournament in Brazil. Hazard scored one goal for Belgium at the Euro 2016 finals, while providing four assists for his teammates and no doubt he was the key player for Marc Wilmots’ team at the tournament in France. Eden was born on 7 January, 1991 in La Louviere, Belgium and it is well known that his brother Thorgan Hazard is a professional football player as well. Eden Hazard is married to Natacha Van Honacker, who gave birth to their three children.
Highlighted Team (Southampton):
Southampton are an English football club that have been playing their home games at St. Mary’s Stadium since 2001. The Saints were based at The Dell in the past and the capacity of Southampton’s new stadium is 32,505. Southampton wear red and white striped shirts and the colour of the team’s away kit is navy and green. The Saints have yet to win the Premier League trophy, but they did well to clinch the FA Cup title back in 1976, while participating in the final of the prestigious competition in 1900, 1902 and 2003. Southampton outplayed Manchester United in the 1976 FA Cup final and that is probably the club’s greatest victory ever. The club are well known for their football academy and Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale is one of the players who began their football carrier at the St. Mary’s Stadium outfit. Southampton’s fiercest rivals are Portsmouth and the two teams square off against each other in the South Coast Derby.
