Sunderland’s record signing, Didier Ndong would be unavailable for selection for Chelsea’s clash with Sunderland and pundit Paul Merson is expecting Chelsea to capitalise on that.
“Didier Ndong will be a miss for Sunderland through suspension as he is the engine in their team,” Merson told Sky Sports.
“They had a shocking result against Swansea and I can’t see anything other than a Chelsea win.
“Chelsea are having to work hard for their wins and West Brom were a bit unlucky not to get anything at the weekend.
“But Chelsea have champagne moments in their team and they are rock solid at the back.”
