Chelsea will be at the Wembley Stadium this weekend, as the Blues face Crystal Palace in the semi-final of the FA Cup.

Paul Merson is backing a resounding Chelsea victory, as he believes Palace will struggle without Conor Gallagher.

“Chelsea were absolutely outstanding against Real Madrid the other night. Timo Werner could’ve scored five goals in the first half against Southampton, but he still has a long way to go at the club. He’s scoring great goals at the moment and could play a part against Crystal Palace,” Merson told Sportskeeda.

“Werner, Havertz, and Mason Mount are Chelsea’s best front three at the moment. With Conor Gallagher unavailable for Crystal Palace, I see nothing but a Chelsea win here.”

Merson has predicted a 3-0 victory for Chelsea.
