Up next for Chelsea is a home game against Manchester City on Wednesday night, and Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson has backed Chelsea to win Pep Guardiola’s men.
“I just don’t see how Man City are going to contain Chelsea,” Merson told Sky Sports.
“They’re all over the place at the back at the moment. I think Chelsea will bounce back here.
“Which Man City are we going to get? The great Man City from the first 15 minutes against Arsenal, where they ripped them to shreds?”
The game against Manchester City is a very important one as the loss to Crystal Palace ensured Chelsea’s lead at the top drop to 7 points.
