“Absolutely right”Monday will be Tottenham first defeat-Paul merson says that fantastic Chelsea player is very difficult for Tottenham players to handle

Chelsea winger Raheem Sterling could pose a real threat to Tottenham with his pace when the teams meet on Monday night.

That is according to Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson.

Chelsea make the short trip across London on Monday to play away at Spurs in the Premier League.

The Blues are into the Carabao Cup quarter-finals after their midweek win over Blackburn Rovers, but the league form still needs addressing. Mauricio Pochettino’s side are 11th in the league standings right now.

In contrast, Spurs are currently top of the league table and playing some very expansive football under Ange Postecoglou.

Chelsea pace

Speaking via Sportskeeda this week, Paul Merson has already predicted Chelsea to record a surprise 2-1 away win at Spurs.

He’s now identified Raheem Sterling, 28, as a potential key player for the Blues because of his speed.
