PAUL MERSON is backing Chelsea to make it ten Premier League wins in a row when they face Sunderland tomorrow night.
The Blues have been in scintillating form in recent weeks, winning nine consecutive matches to go three points clear at the top of the table.
Antonio Conte and co face a Sunderland side currently bottom at the Stadium of Light tomorrow and Merson believes they will only be one outcome.
He told Sky Sports: “Didier Ndong will be a miss for Sunderland through suspension as he is the engine in their team.
“They had a shocking result against Swansea and I can’t see anything other than a Chelsea win.
“Chelsea are having to work hard for their wins and West Brom were a bit unlucky not to get anything at the weekend.
“But Chelsea have champagne moments in their team and they are rock solid at the back.”
After they take on Sunderland, Chelsea make the trip to Crystal Palace on Saturday.
Alan Pardew’s men are currently just three points clear of the relegation zone and face Manchester United tomorrow evening.
