After predicting a win for Chelsea against Swansea City, Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson expects Chelsea to win Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
Merson has predicted a 3-0 victory for Chelsea.
“I can only see this going one way,” Merson told Sky Sports.
“Newcastle did great to come back against West Brom – but Chelsea aren’t West Brom. Chelsea did OK against Swansea, who stayed in the game, but you need to finish games off – if Wayne Routledge had passed to Wilfried Bony at the back post late on, it’s a different game.
“Eden Hazard was rested for that one, he’ll be back here. Chelsea aren’t the same team without him.”
