Three Premier League fixtures Southampton fans dread

Southampton suffered only their second home league defeat of 2016 on Sunday as they were beaten 2-0 by Chelsea at St Mary’s thanks to goals from Eden Hazard and Diego Costa.

The Saints’ other loss this calendar year? Yep, you guessed it. It was against the same opposition back in February, when Branislav Ivanovic scored the winner in a 2-1 win on the south coast.

In fact, the result yesterday wasn’t too surprising given Southampton’s recent home record against the Blues.

They are renowned for being strong at home, especially in the last few seasons, but have taken just one point from the last 12 available against Chelsea at St Mary’s and been beaten seven times in their previous 11 home matches.
