Paul Merson: Chelsea to win.
The Premier League weekend returns and the Blues will be looking to maintain their fine form at the top of the table with a win over the Stoke City at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea are six points clear of Manchester City who sit in second position and former Arsenal midfielder believes the west London side will secure three points over Mark Hughes' men on Saturday evening.
"Stoke played extremely well against Crystal Palace before the international break but just came out on the wrong side of the result," Merson told Sky Sports. "They face a much sterner challenge against a Chelsea side wanting to put the race for the league title to bed.
"They won’t have it all their own way against a solid Mark Hughes side but they will be determined to extend the gap before Manchester City play on Sunday.
"That determination and hunger will be the difference."
