Chelsea will not defeat Tottenham this weekend, according to Paul Merson, if Mykhailo Mudryk and Noni Madueke start.
CHELSEA: To begin with, it is extremely unfair to single out two January additions when the majority of the team is struggling with form.
Despite numerous starts, Mudryk, 22, has yet to consistently impress since his arrival last month. Given that he could end up costing £89 million, the left-winger is under a lot of pressure.
The Premier League is providing opportunities to Madueke, a 20-year-old right winger. The PSV Eindhoven youngster, who cost the club £29 million, is starting to show why he was chosen.
Merson has mocked two wide receivers in his prediction for Chelsea’s trip to Tottenham this Sunday.

Potter believes his team can win 3-0 this weekend in the Premier League if he selects his ideal lineup.
“Here is the starting lineup I hope Potter goes with: Kepa, Reece James, Ben Chilwell, Benoit Badiashile, Thiago Silva, Enzo Fernandez, Mason Mount, Mateo Kovacic, Raheem Sterling, Kai Havertz, and Joao Felix,” writes Merson for Sportskeeda.
“If this team plays, they will defeat Tottenham 3-0. If he starts Mykhailo Mudryk and Noni Madueke, they will lose to the Spurs.
