Arsenal legend predicts Chelsea vs Nottingham Forest clash

Arsenal legend Paul Merson has predicted the outcome of the Premier League clash between Chelsea and Nottingham Forest this weekend.

Merson told Sportskeeda: “Nottingham Forest did very well against Southampton under pressure. But I think this is a game where Nottingham Forest are going to struggle to eke out a positive result.

“Chelsea haven’t been at their best but I don’t see how Forest are going to get the better of them. Forest might already be safe and might have enough points to survive the drop. I think Leicester, Leeds United and Southampton are destined for relegation.

“Chelsea need to sign a new centre-forward this summer. They need a man who can play upfront. You look at their frontline and there are a lot of dynamic forwards but they need someone who is going to come in and score goals. I think not having an out-and-out centre-forward is their Achilles heel.”

Prediction: Chelsea 3-0 Nottingham Forest
