Chelsea may have won 7-0 at the weekend, but it's their defence that has been their shining light, keeping clean sheets and grabbing crucial goals to bail out an oddly out of step forward line.

They've ridden their luck over recent weeks, coming away with results despite being thoroughly outplayed by Brentford and Southampton, but as the saying goes, winning when you're not playing well is the signature of champions.

Southampton just can't seem to get the ball in the back of the net on a consistent basis. Eight of the 18 goals they've scored came in one game, though the fact that that was a Carabao Cup tie is certainly a positive omen. 

Here's how to watch a Chelsea vs Southampton live stream today from anywhere in the world.
