Chelsea will be hoping to avoid losing a two-decade winning streak this weekend when they go to Southampton.

Despite their third-place finish in the Premier League, the Blues have suffered a miserable seven days that began with a 4-1 home defeat to Brentford.

Four days later, Thomas Tuchel saw his team suffer a 3-1 defeat in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final against Real Madrid.

Chelsea lost two consecutive defeats for the first time since September, and they will be hoping to avoid making it three on the South coast.

If the Saints win at St Mary’s, they would hand Chelsea their third consecutive defeat for the first time since 2002, when Claudio Ranieri led the West Londoners.

Chelsea lost to West Ham United and Liverpool in the Premier League on that date, while also suffering a shocking 4-2 defeat to Viking FK in the UEFA Cup.
