Ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League clash against London rivals Arsenal on Saturday, Arsenal legend Paul Merson has backed Chelsea to beat Arsenal comprehensively at Stamford Bridge.
“Arsenal were shocking on Tuesday against Watford and they won’t be relishing this trip to Stamford Bridge,” Merson told Sky Sports.
“It’s a must-win game for Arsenal after their defeat to the Hornets, and they have got to go for it against the best team in the country.
“That will play into Chelsea’s hands. I just can’t make a case for Arsenal here.
“Chelsea are running away with the league and I think they’ll claim a comprehensive victory.”
