Betting Tip: @ 20/1 with coral

With all the attacking talent at Jose Mourinho’s disposal, punters could easily overlook the excellent odds on offer for Chelsea’s outside men to net.

The Stamford Bridge side are often lauded for their defensive organisation, but the Blues’ backline battlers have also been chipping in up top this term.

Captain fantastic John Terry continues to wind back the clock with powerhouse performances, and appears to have honed his attacking talents.

The sturdy centre back has grabbed goals worthy of a striker’s technique, with his timing at set pieces impeccable.

Tenacious Terry has been on target six times this season already, including a crucial Capital One Cup final strike to stun Spurs, which makes the skipper a fantastic 15/2 with Bet365 to score anytime against Southampton.

Terry usually puts in top notch performances against the Saints, and has found the net on two of his past four tussles with the south coast club.

Available at 20/1 with Coral to have the final say at Stamford Bridge, Terry knows how to step up for his boyhood club when it counts.

Centre half partner Gary Cahill also has previous against Southampton, having bagged the opener against them at the Bridge last campaign.

SkyBet have the England international at a tempting best market price of 25/1 to draw first blood again, after cunning Cahill illustrated a poacher’s instinct to fire home first against PSG last time out.

At 10/1 in the anytime market with Bet365, the determined defender, who has netted three time across all competitions this term, will be aiming to show off his set piece prowess.

Flying full back Branislav Ivanovic completes our tips for surprise scorers, but is perhaps not such an outside bet after racking up six goals and five assists so far this season.

Boasting more strikes this campaign than Brazil wideman Willian or France forward Loic Remy, the scintillating Serbia star is priced at 16/1 with William Hill to break the deadlock and hit home first.

A regular instigator of attacks, inspirational Ivanovic previously scored the fourth in Chelsea’s memorable 5-1 FA Cup thrashing of Southampton in 2013, and will be hoping to channel that spirit again.
