Chelsea are currently top of the table after 11 rounds of Premier League matches. Despite Chelsea’s bright start to the season, not many fancy Chelsea to win the league.

Manchester City and Liverpool are many’s favourites to win the league, but not Paul Merson.

Merson has backed Thomas Tuchel’s side to become champions at the end of the season.

Merson backed Chelsea and Manchester City to win their matches this weekend, but believes Arsenal will hold Liverpool to a 1-1 draw.

While making his prediction for Man City vs Everton fixture, Merson told Sportskeeda: “Everton are struggling at the moment and are stuck in a bit of a rut. Ahead of this game, I can’t see anything other than a Manchester City win and I expect them to score a few goals as well. They are still amongst the best sides in the country and are once again gunning for the Premier League title, so they should be winning games like this.

“That said, I still think Chelsea are title favorites, at the moment at least. Manchester City play a false #9 at times and I’m not sure if I like that, as ultimately, the absence of a reliable #9 will come back to haunt them. Manchester City 3-0 Everton.”
