On Tuesday evening, Chelsea have the perfect opportunity to shift some of the title pressure back on to Tottenham.

With six games remaining Chelsea hold a four point advantage over the North London side. A win against Southampton would increase that gap to seven points with Tottenham facing a difficult trip to Selhurst Park, to take on Crystal Palace, on Wednesday evening.

? Ahead of the fixture at Stamford Bridge tomorrow evening, we`ve delved into the history and record books to bring you a series of interesting facts:

? Chelsea`s record against Southampton, at Stamford Bridge, isn`t particularly impressive. They`ve only won 3 of the last 8, last season they lost this fixture 3-1.

? But when you consider the record when it comes to home and away meeting between the clubs since 2002, Chelsea have done considerably better, winning 9, drawing 5 and losing 2 of the last 16 meetings.

? Chelsea`s recent Premier League form has seen them lose 2 out of the last 4 games, twice as many as they lost during the previous 22 games.

? It is now 10 Premier League games since Chelsea kept a clean-sheet.

? Eden Hazard has scored 14 times in the Premier League season, equalling his best ever return, however, our jewel-in-the-crown has bettered that figured, he managed 20 goals when playing for Lille in the 2011 / 2012 season.

? Diego Costa is currently on a run of 5 Premier League games on the trot, however his next Premier League goal will be his 50th.

? Southampton`s away form is good, they`ve won 3 of the last 4 and scored 10 goals.

? When it comes to facing teams in the top six of the Premier League, they`ve not registered a win, losing 6 and drawing 2.

  • Stats or no stats Southampton will fall tomorrow. I can’t bear to see us giving Spurs more ground to come at us.
