Paul Merson delivers prediction for Chelsea vs Leicester City

Chelsea’s last league game was far from impressive, as the Blues were beaten 3-0 by Leeds United at Elland Road.

Chelsea have a home game this weekend, as the Blues play host to struggling Leicester City.

Paul Merson is backing Chelsea to return to winning ways and is predicting a 3-0 victory for Thomas Tuchel’s men.

On Leicester’s trip to Chelsea, Merson told Sportskeeda: “I think Leicester are in for a very, very long Premier League season.

“They had to bring on their big guns to get it done on penalties against Stockport the other day. Fortunately, they have a very good manager, but there’s a lot going on at the club.

“Leicester will need to shut shop at Stamford Bridge, but I don’t think they will. Chelsea are a wounded animal at the moment, and I think they’ll pull off a big win this weekend.”
