Paul Merson makes his Chelsea vs Everton prediction
“I think this is an easy one to call, so I predict a 3-0 win for Chelsea. Everton are sitting ducks at the moment and I just don’t give them a chance,” Merson told the Metro.
“They were fortunate to beat Arsenal and didn’t do anything extraordinary that day, they just showed a lot of heart and scored an absolute peach to win it late in the game.
“If you look at Everton’s Premier League record in recent weeks, it’s been dismal.
“They’ve only got five points from a possible 30 and are bottom of the table if you only consider results from October.
“Chelsea, on the other hand, weren’t great against Leeds, but they still scored three goals and won the game.
“The only question for Chelsea is Romelu Lukaku’s situation.
“He’s clearly back fully fit now, but when is he going to get back into the team?
“If he stays on the bench for a few more games, people will start to wonder if Thomas Tuchel really fancies him or not.
