Chelsea had a good game against Huddersfield at the John Smith Stadium as the Blues defeated the Terriers 3-1, in a game that could easily have been double the scoreline.

Up next for Chelsea is a home fixture against Southampton on Saturday, and Paul Merson has backed the Blues to get another win on the bounce.

Southampton lost their last game to Leicester City 4-1, and Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson doesn’t see a way out for the Saints.

Merson told Sky Sports: “I thought Chelsea were brilliant at Huddersfield.

“I know Tottenham won easily there but Manchester United got beaten there and Manchester City didn’t win until late on.

“Chelsea embarrassed Huddersfield and I can’t see anything but another win here.

“Chelsea have been inconsistent at times this season but if they show the form they have in certain games they can beat Barcelona in the Champions League.

“If they play like they did against Roma they will be out of the tie before you know it.

“Chelsea just need consistency and they will be a threat to anybody.”
