Chelsea host Everton on Sunday afternoon at Stamford Bridge, and Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson has backed Chelsea to beat Everton 2-1 at the Bridge.
Merson expects a tough game on Sunday although he believes Chelsea will carry the day by a goal margin.
Merson told Sky Sports: “Everton were fantastic on Monday until, weirdly, City were reduced to 10 men, after which they were hanging on.
“With a Europa League tie against Hajduk Split on Thursday bound to take a lot of Everton, I see Chelsea following their impressive win at Spurs with another victory.
“Although I expect it to be close, Chelsea 2-1.”
