He told the club's official website: "For sure tomorrow the game will be very hard for us because Southampton are a really good team, they have young players with a great future".

December 13th 2017 is a date Claude Puel will likely cherish for the rest of his managerial career. The club hammered Everton 4-1, before agonisingly losing to all-conquering Man City in the 96th minute.

Southampton have not won in four games as they prepare to face Chelsea, and Pellegrino said: "For us it is a good opportunity this Saturday where we can play a top team where we might find more space".

"We have to do a really good game to have a possibility of winning, but hopefully after a hard moment we can bounce back".

'In hard moments for me obviously you have to come back to the foundations of the team, to the discipline of the team, and get them to think about the possibility they have to be in this club and in the Premier League.

Since Pellegrino took charge on the south coast following the sacking of Claude Peul, Southampton has managed just four wins, although they have managed to get six draws as well and are coming off the back of a heavy defeat.

Puel's Leicester outfit are brimming with confidence and attacking intent, in stark contrast to the end of his tenure at goal-shy Saints, who were labelled boring and defensive. It will be unusual going back to the St Mary's Stadium but it will be nice to see some familiar faces of course. "I hope the fans remember our good times of course, like the journey in the cup and the final. They have a lot of good players, (Shane) Long and (Sofiane) Boufal as well". It was a great moment. Once they scored it was important for us to score a fourth'.
