Southampton manager Ronald Koeman believes that his side can defeat Chelsea in the Premier League.

Southampton manager Ronald Koeman was impressed with Chelsea’s performance against NK Maribor in the Champions League on Tuesday.

The Blues eased past their visitors 6-0 at Stamford Bridge in Group G, with Loic Remy, Didier Drogba and Eden Hazard on target.

Chelsea are also unbeaten in the Premier League, having won seven and drawn one of their eight games so far, collecting 22 points in the process.

However, Koeman believes that the Saints can get the better of Jose Mourinho's team in the league match at St. Mary’s Stadium on December 28.

‘You never know, you never know’, the Dutchman told Sky Sports. ‘It’s the Premier League and you have got a chance against anybody’.

At this moment in time, Koeman is right to have confidence in his players. Southampton are currently third in the Premier League table with 16 points from eight matches, just a point behind second-placed Manchester City.

However, things could get change over the coming months...
