Match Prediction: Bournemouth vs Chelsea – Paul Merson

Paul Merson has given his prediction for Chelsea’s Premier League game away at Bournemouth on Saturday.

“You know what? It sounds a bit weird but I can’t see Chelsea winning this game,” Merson told Sportskeeda. “I can’t believe I’m saying this, but how can you pick Chelsea?

“If Bournemouth win, they go above Chelsea. What’s happened at Chelsea is extraordinary and I’ve personally never seen anything like it.

“The current environment is not good for Frank Lampard and there have been claims that it might affect his career in the long-term, but people will know it’s not all about Frank.

“Chelsea have other deep-rooted issues and once his stint at the club is done, it all depends on the kind of jobs that become available for Frank. I fancy Bournemouth to win this one 2-1.”
