Is Southampton vs Chelsea live on TV? How to watch the midweek Premier League games in the UK
How to watch Southampton vs Chelsea: There’s a bounty of live midweek Premier League action to enjoy. Here’s how you can tune-in to Southampton vs Chelsea live on TV and online.
It’s one of those rare matchdays where all ten Premier League fixtures are live on UK television. There’s a full midweek programme across three evenings with all twenty clubs in action.
It all starts on Tuesday night with Chelsea’s visit to Southampton arguably the headliner. Chelsea only needed ten men to beat Leicester at the weekend, thanks to a Raheem Sterling double following Conor Gallagher’s red card. Meanwhile, Southampton have another home game just three days after falling to a 1-0 defeat to Manchester United.
The bookies would suggest a comfortable win for the visitors, but the Saints certainly have the ability to compete with the big clubs on their day, especially on home soil.
Chelsea will be hopeful of breaking into the top four, at least temporarily, after tonight’s game and give themselves the platform for a title challenge moving forward, while you sense the Saints would be happy to avoid being dragged into a relegation dogfight.
Here’s how to watch Southampton vs Chelsea on the best TV, best smartphone or best laptop you have in the house.
