CHELSEA will cruise to victory at Arsenal.
That’s the view of Gunners hero Paul Merson.
The Blues travel to the Emirates on Wednesday evening in a crucial top four clash.
Chelsea are currently second in the Premier League table, behind runaway leaders Manchester City, with Arsenal in fifth.
A win for Arsene Wenger’s men could put them level on points with Liverpool in fourth.
However, Merson is backing Chelsea to ease past Arsenal in a comfortable win.
“This is a good game. I have seen Arsenal a lot this season and they do give you chances,” Merson told Sky Sports.
“Going forward Chelsea are better than some of the teams Arsenal have played recently and I think they will pick them off as the game goes on.
“There doesn’t seem a lot of good harmony at Arsenal at the moment. That celebration the other day was worrying. When you are winning it’s OK but you don’t win that many games when it’s like that.
“Not everybody likes everybody in a football team, that’s fact, but when you get on the pitch whatever happens off the pitch you give your all together, that is what wins you trophies, not petulance like ‘I don’t like him so I won’t celebrate with him’. That doesn’t win you anything. 1-3.”
