Chelsea fans are confident of a return to winning ways when The Blues travel to St Mary’s Stadium to face Southampton in the English Premier League on Saturday lunchtime according to the results of a series of exclusive Chelsea Presser fan polls.

Antonio Conte’s men have picked up just one point from their last two league fixtures but a better performance is expected on the South Coast.

Ahead of the fixture against one of the division’s relegation-threatened clubs, we asked Blues fans whether they think their side will record a victory at St Mary’s. Fans voted in their usual high numbers with 80% opting for an away win, 10% for the draw and 10% voting in favour of a home success.

In a second fan poll, we asked the Chelsea faithful how many goals they think their side will score against Southampton. Two or three goals was the most favourable outcome with 57% of the votes while 7% think that Conte’s men will net four or more. Just 7% expect the home side to keep a clean sheet while 29% voted for one goal from The Blues.

Finally, with Chelsea’s recent defensive record coming in for much criticism, we asked whether Danish defender Andreas Christensen should be recalled at centre-back. Fans voted in support of the former Borussia Monchengladbach loanee with 85% opting for a recall.

The match is scheduled to kick-off at 12.30pm and will be screened live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League channels.
