Chelsea fans fear the new manager bounce as old enemy set to take up Southampton job

Chelsea have two tough games against Borussia Dortmund coming up, with a game against 20th placed Southampton sandwiched in the middle.

That should be the easy game – but one recent twist has superstitious Chelsea fans worried. Sky Sports are reporting that currently managerless Saints are set to appoint former Leeds boss Jesse Marsch in the coming hours.

Marsch had perhaps the high point of his Leeds stint when his side took on Chelsea and won, with the American coach battling Thomas Tuchel on the sideline in one of the German manager’s last games as Blues boss.

Since then things went downhill pretty rapidly, and the American was sacked a week ago. But clearly he impressed enough to get another Premier League chance, and his first game back on the hot seat will be against Chelsea it seems.

The new manager bounce is a powerful thing, and 3 easy points are looking a little harder now…
