Boasting a strong record against the Saints, our tipster expects the Belgium international to steal the headlines once again for Conte's team

Having come off the bench to score twice in last weekend’s 3-2 league victory at St Mary’s, Olivier Giroud will be hoping to fire once again when Chelsea take on Southampton in Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final.

The former Arsenal striker has been involved in more goals in this competition than any other player since his debut in 2013, and is dabblebet’s 3/1 (4.00) favourite to open the scoring at Wembley, or 17/20 (1.85) to strike anytime.

Also on the scoresheet in that comeback victory, Eden Hazard looks like an even stronger anytime bet at even money (2.00) considering he has now scored in three of the last four matches versus the Saints.

Alvaro Morata can also be backed at evens (2.00) despite scoring just twice in 2018, while Willian is available at 17/10 (2.70) to add to his 13 goals for the campaign in all competitions.

His side’s top scorer with just seven goals in all competitions, Charlie Austin is likely to pose the biggest threat at the other end of the pitch for Mark Hughes’ men.

On target in four of his last nine appearances, the 28-year-old is Southampton’s 6/1 (7.00) favourite to break the deadlock in London, or 9/5 (2.80) to score anytime.

Despite his eye for goal, Austin has recently fallen behind Shane Long in the pecking order due to his work ethic off the ball.

Having scored just twice in 53 matches for club and country, the Irishman remains a relative long shot at 3/1 (4.00) to hit the back of the net in this clash.

Instead, Hughes may require his midfielders to chip in with some goals, with James Ward-Prowse available at 9/2 (5.50) after only scoring four times this campaign.

After scoring the opener in last weekend’s 3-2 defeat against Chelsea, Dusan Tadic is priced at 4/1 (5.00) to punish their defence once again in more high profile circumstances.
