Football pundit Paul Merson has revealed Chelsea’s game against Brentford would be a very tough one.

Chelsea are in top form at the moment, and the Blues have won five games in a row and four of their last four league matches.

Paul Merson is backing Chelsea to beat Brentford 3-1, but has warned that if the Blues play like they did against Aston Villa, they may not win this game.

“I think Chelsea were lucky [against Aston Villa],” Merson told Sportskeeda.

“Kepa had one of the best goalkeeping performances I’ve ever seen.

“I didn’t think he had it in him, to be honest. After the amount of stick he’s got, I’m really pleased for him.

“This is going to be a hard game for Chelsea. If they play like they did against Aston Villa, Brentford will punish them. They can’t keep conceding chances like that, especially against the better teams in the Premier League.

“Chelsea are on a bit of a roll at the moment and they’ve got to ride their luck. They can’t keep relying on Kepa to pull off performances like that.

“Mason Mount is scoring goals as well now, and that makes him a phenomenal player.

“Both teams are finding their feet at the moment and have been a little weak at the back. I think Chelsea will make it to the top four this season and they should be able to win this game, I’ll go 3-1.”
