Filip Djuricic is confident Southampton are capable of maintaining their UEFA Champions League push by beating Chelsea.
Southampton attacking midfielder Filip Djuricic believes Southampton have the quality to cap off a disappointing week for Chelsea by taking something from their trip to Stamford Bridge.
Ronald Koeman’s men visit the Premier League leaders today in need of a win to keep themselves in the hunt for a UEFA Champions League qualification place.
And the visitors may well be the fresher team, with Chelsea having played 120 minutes in their European exit at the hands of Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday.
Djuricic – on loan from Benfica – told Southampton’s YouTube channel: “We have games against Chelsea and then Burnley, those are the games that can decide our destiny.
“I can see how the guys behave on the training, it’s a very serious match. In this game we cannot lose so much and that’s our advantage.
“Also they have a little bit of a difficult schedule because they went out from Champions League but it’s on us.
