Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson has predicted Chelsea will beat Bournemouth on Boxing Day, but he believes it will be by just a goal.

Merson analyses: If there were two players Chelsea would least like to play without, it would be Diego Costa and N’Golo Kante. That’s what they’re faced with against Bournemouth, but I still think they will be too strong. You’re never too sure about Bournemouth: one minute they’re getting slaughtered by Southampton at home and then before that they beat Liverpool and Leicester. Costa and Kante will be missed but Chelsea have picked up the habit of winning games.

Chelsea 1 v 0 Bournemouth

I’d disagree with Paul Merson this time. Even though we’ll be without two key players, Chelsea will win this game convincingly.

What’s your prediction for the game?
