After a week and some days of international football, we are back to Premier League hostilities, and for Chelsea, we’d host Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon.
Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson has backed Chelsea to take all 3 points in this fixture.
“Nothing but a Chelsea win here,” Merson told Sky Sports. “I just don’t see how Crystal Palace can hold them, despite regaining some good form.
“They won a football match without having a shot on target against Watford, but there’s no way they’ll be able to stop Chelsea.”
Chelsea beat Palace 1-0 at Selhurst Park in the reverse fixture, and a great save from Thibaut Courtois from a good Van Aanholt shot kept Chelsea’s three points intact.
