Premier League: Paul Merson warns Chelsea could end Man City’s title chances ▷ Kenya News



– Paul Merson has named Mason Mount, Christian Pulisic and Tammy Abraham among the players who could hurt Man City

– City are scheduled to host the Blues in their next league match at Etihad after the international break

– Chelsea are currently sitting third on the standings with 26 points, one better than Man City who dropped to fourth after defeat to Liverpool

Arsenal hero Paul Merson has cautioned Man City to be wary of Chelsea’s young guns as they could end their title defence.

Man City are keen to retain the league title for the third consecutive season under the tutelage of Pep Guardiola.

However, the Manchester outfit is once again facing stiff competition from an in-form Liverpool side who are topping the standings with 34 points.

Liverpool are keen to wrestle City for domestic glory after missing out on the trophy by a single point last season.

The Reds stunned the Citizens 3-1 on Sunday, November 10, to open an eight-point lead on the summit on the log.

And Merson has warned the Etihad dwellers’ league defence could suffer a massive blow when they face off with Chelsea after the international break.

Discussing the EPL race on Sky Sports, the former Arsenal star claimed the Blues, who are currently on an impressive run could hurt City.

“You have to remember that City have Chelsea at home next who are good going forward and you are talking about a team who are going to give you problems at the back with Abraham, Mount and Pulisic,” he noted.

“This is going to be a problem game and if they do not win that game and Liverpool win, City have to get through their next six or seven games before they can be title contenders again,” he added.
