Paul Merson is of the opinion that current Premier League table leaders Chelsea will leave Turf Moor with all three points on Sunday, when they face Burnley in their next premier league game.
The Stamford Bridge club face a tricky assignment with the Clarets in great form on their own patch. Burnley have the third-best home record in Premier League this season so far, winning nine of their 13 games.
However, former Arsenal midfielder Paul Merson says Chelsea have too much quality for Burnley and Is already predicting a Chelsea win at Burnley
“For as much as I admire Burnley I cannot see past Chelsea” He told Sky Sports
“When you talk about Burnley, you are talking about one of the best home records in the Premier League – that is some going as not many would have said that at the start of the season.
“Chelsea’s record against teams outside the top six is imperious, though.
“Swansea are the only team outside those top clubs to get a point off Chelsea – Antonio Conte’s men have put the so-called lesser teams to the sword.
“For as much as I admire Burnley I cannot see past Chelsea, they will have too much for them.”
The blues have a nine-point lead at the top of the table following last weekend’s 3-1 win at home to the gunners.
