The situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic hasn’t eased off, leading to a handful of games being rescheduled to the new year. Chelsea will be locking horns with Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Sunday evening.

Former Arsenal star Paul Merson has given his prediction ahead of the weekend clash between Chelsea and Liverpool.

“If I’m going purely based on what I saw of Chelsea against Brighton, I can’t see anything but a Liverpool win.

” I was shocked by Chelsea’s performance last night – they were lethargic, slow, and had nothing good to show after 90 minutes of football.”

 

How Liverpool could Lineup against Arsenal without three injured key players

” I believe both teams are already out of the Premier League title race, but it could be the final nail in the coffin for whoever loses this one. There’s really no point in a draw, as they need to close the gap at the top to stay in contention. he added.

‘If Reece James misses out for Chelsea, it’s anyone’s best guess who Thomas Tuchel deploys at right-wing back. Christian Pulisic played there and it didn’t quite work out.

” The wing-backs are a big part of their team and with Ben Chilwell out for the rest ff the season, it could get very difficult for Chelsea.

“Chelsea are fighting for top four again – that’s how quickly things can change in the Premier League.

‘Pace at the back is Chelsea’s Achilles heel, which is why I’d fancy Sadio Mane to get the nod once again. Jurgen Klopp could call upon Roberto Firmino, but I think the Senegalese winger will start and look to return to form.”
