Southampton-Chelsea Preview

Why aren't Chelsea challenging Manchester City for the Premier League title? The answer: fixture congestion, according to at least one of their number.

Antonio Conte's Chelsea (11-2-4) won the league last season thanks in part to a lack of involvement in European competition, but they have been afforded no such space this time around, and go into Saturday's home game against Southampton a full 14 points off the top of the table despite being in third place.

That's not to say that the west London club have performed poorly so far this season. To the contrary, their haul of 35 points at this stage would have seen them in the title shake-up during most previous Premier League campaigns.
