Chelsea is set to play Southampton on Sunday at the St Mary’s and Paul Merson believes the match will be a difficult one for Chelsea.
Paul Merson believes Chelsea should be taken seriously as title contenders if Chelsea win a difficult Southampton side on Sunday.
“Southampton have only lost one in their last 10 and this is a really difficult match for Chelsea,” Paul Merson told Sky Sports.
“Claude Puel’s side will put up a real fight on Sunday because they are extremely difficult to break down and a threat going forward.
“I’m picking a draw but if Chelsea do manage to get a win at St Mary’s, you need to put them back up as contenders.”
