Ahead of Saturday’s Premier League game between Chelsea and Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge, Paul Merson has given his prediction for the game.
Merson was disappointed with Aston Villa’s performance against Brentford before the international break and believes Chelsea were outstanding against Liverpool.
He told Sportskeeda: “I see a very comfortable home win in this game. Chelsea move the ball very quickly and they have been dominant this season.
“They were outstanding against Liverpool with ten men, and I thought Kovacic came on and kept the ball brilliantly to keep his side in the game. The fact that he’s not a shoo-in at Chelsea speaks volumes about their squad depth.
“I was very disappointed with Aston Villa’s performance against Brentford. They were not at their best, and never looked like they were going to win that game.
“Chelsea have been excellent under Thomas Tuchel and they should be able to cruise to victory this weekend. Chelsea 3-0 Aston Villa.”
