Paul Merson and Chris Sutton have agreed on the fact Chelsea will continue their winning form against Everton on the weekend.
Chelsea have been tipped to beat Everton by both Merson and Sutton on Saturday. The Blues will like to continue their winning streak in Premier League.
Former Arsenal star Sutton backs Chelsea to continue their winning form:-
“Chelsea seem to be finding a bit of form, at last. Wouldn’t it be something if they won the Champions League under Graham Potter, after such a difficult start for him at Stamford Bridge?
“First things first, though, they should take three points on Saturday. Everton are another team who are decent at home but dreadful away. They have a really tough run-in, by the way, so their form on the road will have to improve at some point if they are going to stay out of the bottom three.”
PAUL MERSON AGREES WITH THE FACT THAT CHELSEA WILL CONTINUE THEIR WINNING STREAK
Meanwhile, Paul Merson agrees with Sutton as he acknowledges Chelsea’s turnaround:-
“Everton got a fantastic win against Brentford but they have a bunch of hard games coming up, so they really needed to get three points against the Bees.
“Chelsea, on the other hand, are finally showing signs of clicking under Graham Potter after the Englishman decided to revert to a three-at-the-back formation,
“Some of the football they played against Leicester was unreal. In the second half, they sliced through the Foxes like butter and carved them open, with Mateo Kovacic and Enzo Fernandez pulling the strings in the centre of the park.
“I said it before and I’ll say it again – these guys are massive dangers in the UEFA Champions League as there’s just too much depth and quality in that squad despite how their league campaign has turned out so far.
“Raheem Sterling no longer makes Chelsea’s best team anymore, as Mykhailo Mudryk, Joao Felix and Kai Havertz led the line to devastating effect against Leicester.
“Sterling did get the winner against Borussia Dortmund, but Potter is finally showing signs of finding his best XI and if Chelsea continue to win games, will he change his team? For now, if I were him, I wouldn’t change anything.”
Moreover, Potter’s side will be high on confidence as they knocks out Dortmund in the Champions League and will like to continue their winning form. They will have the tough task of facing Everton at Stanford Bridge.
