Chelsea won the Premier League trophy with two games to spare thanks to Michy Batshuayi’s winner with eight minutes remaining at The Hawthorns.
Sunderland, on the other hand, are already relegated and the Black Cats lost 2-0 to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night.
Conte made wholesale changes for Monday night’s 4-3 win against Watford as the Chelsea second-string got a run out in front of their home supporters.
Writing in his Sky Sports column about Chelsea’s home clash against Sunderland, former Arsenal midfielder Merson tipped the champions to win in style.
I think all the Chelsea big boys will play in this now after a lot were rested against Watford on Monday. I thought Sunderland played really well for 70 minutes against Arsenal but they are not in the same league as Chelsea.
I expect Chelsea, with their players, the rested ones will play and I think they will be miles ahead of Sunderland.
PAUL PREDICTS: 4-0
