Ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League clash away at West Ham on Saturday, Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson is predicting a 3-1 victory for Chelsea.
“These aren’t the games that matter for West Ham,” Merson told Sky Sports.
“I know it is a London derby and they don’t like each other. I don’t expect them to get anything from this, but if you lose to Arsenal and Chelsea it isn’t too bad. It is the games against Stoke, Newcastle and Bournemouth that matter most. Chelsea are a superior football team by far. West Ham’s battles are still to come.
“Chelsea have turned a corner, and have some good fixtures coming up, so I expect them to be putting pressure on Manchester City.”
