Chelsea’s season starts today as the Blues will be away to Huddersfield this afternoon at the John Smith Stadium.
This game will be Maurizio Sarri’s first Premier League match as Chelsea boss, and Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson believes the Blues will get a 2-0 victory.
Merson told Sky Sports: “Huddersfield have got to start well. David Wagner performed miracles keeping them up last season and they were helped by a good start. This is a really tough game for them.
“Chelsea have their problems but I just feel they’ll have too much for Huddersfield. They went there last season and were a class above, and they’ll want to impress their new manager.”
