Paul Merson predicts Fulham vs Chelsea outcome

English former professional footballer and football Pundit Paul Merson has revealed his predicted outcome for the game between Fulham and Chelsea.

According to Sportskeeda, the former Arsenal star wrote: “Chelsea got a good result in the Carabao Cup against Brighton – they really needed it. However, they have a bit of an issue against Fulham as Nicolas Jackson is suspended. I think Armando Broja will be given an opportunity to lead the line and | hope he takes his chance as he was doing well before getting injured.

“The Blues have opened up teams but haven’t been scoring freely. On some level, watching Chelsea reminds me of Manchester United because they don’t have a fixed pattern of play or a clear philosophy like Arsenal, Manchester City, or even Liverpool.

“I wouldn’t be shocked if Chelsea dropped points because it’s been that kind of a season for them, but they’re my team and my heart says they’ll win 1-0. Mauricio Pochettino still hasn’t found his best team and I feel bad for him as they’ve just gone out and bought player after player with no real plan.

“They also have a handful of injury issues to deal with, so I think we have to wait before passing judgment on Pochettino’s time at the club”

Merson’s prediction: Fulham 0-1 Chelsea.
