Chelsea are yet to win a game since the start of the new year, and the Blues will be away to Brighton in the Premier League on Saturday.

Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson has predicted a win for Chelsea, but he thinks the Blues will only struggle to win the game.

He told Sky Sports: “I was at Chelsea on Wednesday night, and I know it’s not their first team, but they look devoid of confidence. I watched Chelsea against Leicester last weekend, and the Foxes were by far the better team in that game, and were unfortunate not to win.

“Brighton are decent at home. There’s no Alvaro Morata, and I watched Michy Batshuayi on Wednesday and thought: ‘Go on, work hard, and you’ve got every chance to put pressure on the manager!’ He wasn’t even interested. I think this is a hard game, but I’m just tipping Chelsea.”

He predicted a 1-0 victory for Chelsea.

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
