Chelsea will be away to Bournemouth on Saturday evening, and while Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson is backing Chelsea to take all three points at the Vitality Stadium, he has admitted that Chelsea’s defence is the major problem for the Blues this season.

Merson told Sky Sports: “Chelsea weren’t too convincing against Watford but they still scored four goals. That’s the quality they possess.

“Their problem this season seems to be they have lost that solidity at the back. Last season their defensive three was so strong and it was hard to score against them, you had to work really hard. Now that doesn’t seem the case.

“Bournemouth might score in front of their home fans but I still think Chelsea will have miles too much for them to get a result.”
