Southampton manager Ronald Koeman believes that his side can beat Chelsea at home in their Premier League tie this weekend.
The Blues has been poor this season so far with just eight points from a possible 21 as they struggle to defend their title and may still find things difficult against the Saints after they fell 2-1 to FC Porto in the UEFA Champions League.
Dutchman Koeman picked up two draws against Jose Mourinho’s side last season, and the Southampton manager feels that it is an ideal time for his troops to beat the Blues this time around.
“Maybe they have lost a bit of that winning mentality,” he told a pre-match press conference. “[And] they are making more changes [in defence] than last year.
“We know we can have a good result if we play at our level because we had two draws against them last year, that belief we had last year we have to show again.”
Southampton currently in ninth position on the Premier League log sit five places above Chelsea in 15th.
