Southampton interim manager Ruben Selles has praised Chelsea midfielder Enzo Fernandez ahead of Saturday’s trip to Stamford Bridge. This will be a crucial match for both teams.
Chelsea vs Southampton: It’s all about survival for Southampton, who are currently bottom of the Premier League table. Chelsea, on the other hand, is on a four-game losing streak and is under pressure to demonstrate the results of their recent spending spree.
Selles has taken an interest in one of Chelsea’s January signings in particular.
“In my opinion, they were much better than the opponent in the game that I watched against Borussia Dortmund,” Selles said in his pre-match press conference.

Because Chelsea has more than a week between this game and their trip to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Fernandez is likely to retain his starting spot. Argentina international has been one of the team’s best performers since making his Chelsea debut earlier this month.
It is unsurprising that as his influence at Chelsea grows, opposition teams will pay closer attention to him.
